The Selinda Reserve is a 320 000 acre (129 500 hectare) private wildlife sanctuary in northern Botswana. The famous Selinda Spillway, which links the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando wetlands and rivers, meanders through the area. Abundant wildlife is attracted to the vast floodplains and grasslands along the river, with large numbers of elephant and vast herds of buffalo congregating around the Zibadianja Lagoon in the dry winters. Predator viewing is also exceptional, including lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.

Why Visit

The Selinda Reserve is one of Africa’s great wildlife reserves. Part of the Great Plains Conservation project, spearheaded by National Geographic photographers and filmmakers Derek and Beverley Joubert. Selinda borders Linyanti to the East and the Kwando reserve to the North. The Selinda Spillway is a usually dry channel that connects the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. On the rare occasion that these channels connect, Selinda springs to life with a game density that is hard to beat anywhere.
