Located in northern Botswana’s revered Selinda Reserve, Motswiri Camp occupies an exquisite spot on the banks of the Selinda Spillway. Here, this environmentally conscious camp looks out over the peaceful floodplains, offering a view of all the birds and wildlife attracted to the glistening lagoon.
There are 5 classic tented chalets, built on wooden decking, which all look over the water. The main area of the camp, including a large, covered deck with a lounge and dining area, overlooks the open boma area and the Spillway. From every location in the camp, the emphasis is on the view from this sublime location.
There are 120 000 acres of exclusive traverse to explore on foot, by boat, mekoro, or game drive, and expert guides lead keen fishermen, photographers, or birdwatchers to the sweet spots in the reserve for some personalised safari activities.
The Selinda Reserve is an alluring tract of land, vastly unexplored due to its limited accessibility, in northern Botswana.
The Selinda Spillway courses through the reserve, joining the Okavango Delta in the south and the Linyanti swamps in the west, flowing in both directions. To the north lies the Caprivi Strip, or what is now known as the Zambezi Region.
RAW Botswana is located in the Selinda Reserve on 120 000 acres of private land, right on the banks of the Spillway, overlooking the vast, open floodplains from a shaded spot beneath riverine trees. The sheer remoteness of the camp’s location is perhaps its greatest asset.
There is a private airstrip, which is the only way of getting in and out of the camp. Other than that: acres of peace and quiet, aside from the sounds of the natural surroundings.
