Selinda Concession, Botswana Plan a trip

Explore Botswana’s magnificent wilderness on foot at the Selinda Concession, one of the country’s best reserves for walking safaris.

The beautiful Selinda Concession, stretching between the Linyanti River and the Okavango Delta, is also lion country. The 1,350 square kilometre reserve has many resident lion prides, along with two packs of rare wild dogs. In fact, this is one of the best places in Botswana to see these elusive creatures. You can also see large herds of zebra, buffalo and wildebeest, along with antelope, giraffe, cheetah, and spotted hyena.

The best way to explore the Selinda Concession is on a guided walking trail. Settle into camp life, then head out each day with a friendly, experienced guide for up-close animal encounters and the chance to immerse yourself in Botswana’s wild landscapes. This is a place of vast open skies, enormous floodplains and seasonal wetlands. And there’s nothing like putting one foot in front of the other to feel a strong connection with nature.

The jewel in Selinda’s crown has to be its sparkling Linyanti Lagoon, where the resident hippo wallow and flocks of pink-backed pelicans gather. If you’re lucky, you’ll even glimpse playful baboons on tiny palm islands, taking a breather on towering termite mounds.

Spend your days at the Selinda Concession tracking elephants amid the fragrant wild sage, or feeling your heartrate rocket as you spot a stealthy lion hunting a hippo. You’ll come back to camp each evening tired but invigorated, and head home with unforgettable memories of once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experiences.
