The unique combination of floodplains and dry landscapes in Selinda offers some exceptional game viewing and species diversity.

Predators

With the presence of grazers and browsers comes the predator population, including some of Africa’s rare and endangered hunters: wild dog and cheetah. In fact, RAW Botswana is gaining an enviable reputation for regular wild dog sightings. Lion prides and solitary leopards patrol the plains, while raptors prey from above.

Mammals

The unique combination of floodplains and dry landscapes in Selinda offers some exceptional game viewing and species diversity. The constant presence of water in the Spillway provides a home to large herbivores, such as hippo, elephant, and buffalo, while there is an exceptional and rare presence of sable and roan antelope.

Birdlife

Selinda’s diverse vegetation brings a variety of bird species to Motswiri and the surroundings. The Spillway is alive with the presence of water birds, such as kingfishers, herons, jacanas, storks, and bee-eaters, while flycatchers, larks, weavers, and warblers populate the grasslands, and of course birds of prey soar in the skies. 

Top Wildlife Moments at Raw Botswana



Leopard at Motswiri Camp

We consider ourselves lucky every time we see a leopard, as they are the most elusive member of the Big 5 and their solitary, nocturnal lifestyles make them difficult to spot. Fortunately, our traverse in the Selinda seems to provide the perfect habitat for these sleek cats, giving us fantastic opportunities to see them in action.


Elephants crossing the Spillway

Game drives, mokoro cruises, canoeing, motorised boating safaris, fishing, and birdwatching are among the activities available during your stay at Motswiri Camp in the Selinda. Guests recently encountered these elephants crossing the Spillway whilst enjoying a guided mokoro safari.


Game Viewing on Horseback

Riding safaris are fine-tuned and highly professional with specially acclimatised horses and guides. There are not more than 6 guests to a group, accompanied by a lead and back-up guide. Riding competency is a requirement, and riders must be older than 12.
