Selinda Camp


Intimate luxury set in pristine wilderness

Nestled in the 130,000-hectare private reserve, Selinda Camp is a lavish, thatched lodge on the banks of the Selinda Spillway surrounded by an incredible variety and quantity of wildlife.

Designed to embrace different cultures and peoples, this extremely opulent yet intimate camp offers unrivalled luxury in three expansive suites, each with private plunge pools overlooking the spillway, individually designed and themed.

In addition to the three main tents, the Selinda Suite consists of a two-bedroom tented villa with its own private vehicle, safari guide, chef, manager/butler and entrance to their residence.

Selinda Reserve has been named as one of the world’s Top 100 Sustainable Destinations. By staying at Great Plains Conservation’s camps, you are directly helping to protect Africa’s wild spaces.
