Selinda South Concession
, also known as NG16
, is a private safari area located to the south of the Okavango Delta
in northern Botswana
The concession covers around 1575 square kilometres and is restricted to around 20 guests in two small camps, around 78 square kilometres per person, which represents an exceptionally low density.
Selinda South is situated on the north side of the delta, where the key feature is the Selinda Spillway, an ephemeral waterway connecting the wetlands to the more northerly Linyanti Waterfront
. When this channel flows, it creates a lovely area of wetlands which attract a wealth of wildlife.
The area is operated by some really pleasant and earthy safari folks, who have an unusually passionate and intelligent approach. They specialise in providing some of the best walking safari and horse-back safari in the Okavango.
When the spillway is flowing the area also offers some excellent opportunities for mokoro canoe safari and motorboat safari.
The main potential downside is that in seasons when the river fails to flow, wildlife can become rather scarce. The spillway was dry for decades until the high flood of 2006, since which it has been much more reliable.SeasonsAccommodationTrips
