Selinda Canoe Safari
An active 5-day canoe safari along Botswana's remote Selinda Spillway for wild camping with big game
A magical experience appealing to travellers of all ages, the
Selinda Canoe Trail is a canoeing and walking adventure safari that
replicates the safari experiences of old as it navigates along the
Selinda Spillway into the heart of the Selinda Reserve.
Your days will be spent paddling eastwards along the Spillway,
in stable Canadian-style canoes with cushioned seats, viewing
wildlife and bird species as you float along. Nights are spent in
fly camps (dome tents with hot bucket showers and short-drop
toilets) along the way.
This trip really constitutes wild camping at its best as the
entire area evokes remoteness and solitude. The region is well
known for elephant, buffalo, sable antelope, roan antelope and wild
dog, as well as some 300 bird species. Cheetah, lion and leopard
are occasionally seen.
Days 1, 2, 3 & 4: Game drive transfer from Selinda airstrip to
starting point on the spillway, paddling downstream, 4 nights wild
Day 5: Transfer by road to Selinda airstrip for onward
NOTE: A night spent at Selinda or Zarafa camps before or after the
Trail is highly recommended.
