Selinda Explorers is a delightful little camp, perfect for travellers looking for a genuine “old world” safari in simple but elegant style. Unpretentious yet refined, this camp of just 4 tents offers a special safari experience with a focus on walking and 4x4 drives. The camp lies on the Selinda Spillway, embracing the natural riverine forest, in the heart of the vast and varied 130,000 hectare Selinda reserve. A truly remote and peaceful safari.
In the style of the early explorer, Selinda Explorers camp is furnished with traditional and vintage pieces – reminiscent of the expedition pioneers. This is especially evident in the central area, positioned beneath towering Jackalberry and Mangosteen trees. The overall feel of Selinda Explorers is bohemian with stylish bare-foot luxury. This is an intimate camp, with just four tents, and being such a popular camp it books up very quickly.
Each of the 4 tents is designed to offer a classic safari experience in an intimate bush environment. Ensuite “al fresco” showers and toilet area create an authentic wilderness feel and the copper vanities and large pouring jugs are reminiscent of a vintage expedition and make an original touch. All tents enjoy the shady canopies of the forest on slightly raised viewing decks.
The focus here is the appreciation of the reserve’s environment and the creatures who live here, with minimal divide in-between and as such walking is offered allowing for a slower pace safari. 4×4 game drives will be included to complete the experience.
Exploring this remote area on foot allows for guides to share their intimate knowledge of the tracks and signs in the bush. Finding animals this way is exhilarating and fascinating. A huge variety of Africa’s iconic animals and plentiful birds reside here and can often be found, whilst exploring this way. The famed large herds of Elephant and Buffalo frequent the area, with numerous antelope and plains game species including Giraffe, Zebra, Impala, Kudu, Red Lechwe and Reedbuck. Predators are always around and sightings of Lion, Leopard or African Wild Dog are not unheard of! 4×4 game drives are also available when sightings require a little more infrastructure!
The area has become especially well known through various National Geographic films made by the camp’s film-maker owners Beverley and Derek Joubert and watching one of their films, such as the “Birth of a Pride” is a wonderfully way to build anticipation of your forthcoming safari to this wonderful reserve.
