Great Plains Conservation is proud to announce its new camp, Selinda Explorers Camp, opening next week on 15 August 2012 in Botswana's Selinda Reserve.
With just four tents Selinda Explorers Camp, located on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, will be a new concept for Botswana; an authentic, exclusive-use camp which is not chargeable per camp, but chargeable per person up to a maximum of maximum of eight people, with a separate tent for those hiring a private guide. Perfect for small groups and families, or for couples or single travellers wanting total exclusivity (minimum charge: 4x per person rate). 2012 rates start at just USD368 per person low season, rising to only USD545 peak season, inclusive of private guide and vehicle, all activities, drink and food (closed December to February). In balance with the wild location of this camp (about an hour’s game drive west of Selinda airstrip) the camp is ecologically-sensitive with 100% solar power, grey water treatment, and bore-hole water for drinking.
THE CAMP: Each for the four tents signed in the style of the early explorers, with Campaign furniture, Persian rugs, sherry decanters, flush toilets and bucket showers. An open sided mess tent provides comfort in a bedouin style. As a romantic touch brass hip-baths can be portered to a nearby sand bank of the Selinda Spillway.
THE LOCATIONLocated an hour west from Selinda airstrip in shady trees beside the Selinda Spillway, the camp is sited to take advantage of a wildlife hotspot identified by four years of operating the Selinda Canoe Trail. Expect huge herds of elephant and buffalo, wild-dog, lion, hyena, rare sable and roan antelope and superb birding.
THE EXPERIENCE: This is a remote, exclusive and new location in the 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve. Activities will concentrate on getting back to nature with guided walking and canoeing a focus. Day and night game drives available exploring the eastern reaches of the Selinda Reserve with its extensive network of tracks.
If you're quick you can still find availability for this year's peak months at the new Selinda Explorers Camp.
