The camp was rebuilt in 2010, with the concept of environmental stability and stylish simplicity in mind. The main camp area takes advantage of the phenomenal location, overlooking the Selinda Spillway and all the wildlife activity it invites.
Timber decking and canvas structures house and sheltered outdoor lounge and dining area, all open plan and facing the view. There is a sand pit and fireplace at the water’s edge where starlit dinners take place, and a jetty leading to the boat and mekoro mooring station.
Outdoor furniture offers a place to sit and watch as elephants and other wildlife amble through the waterways in front of camp, while a swimming pool with shaded pool deck provide discreet relief from the summer heat.
The camp is located on the banks of the spectacular Selinda Spillway, an ancient watercourse linking the Okavango and Kwando-Linyanti floodplains in northern Botswana. The Selinda Reserve lies to the east of the Okavango Panhandle, and is a revered and exquisite wildlife area.
The camp operates exclusively on 120 000 acres of this magnificent and world-renowned tract of land. Guests can fly in to Motswiri’s adjacent airstrip from Maun and Kasane, which of course, is an experience in itself. The view from the air during the 40-minute light air transfer is of the scenic jewel-toned Delta waterways.
Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta, and the camp is thereafter accessed by privately chartered light aircraft - a short 40-minute flight to our airstrip adjacent to camp.
There is a luggage restriction on this flight of 20kgs (44lbs) per person, and a requirement for soft-sided luggage.
Guests can fly daily to Maun on Air Botswana from any of the following airports: Johannesburg, Cape Town and Gaborone. Motswiri arranges private charters in a light aircraft from Maun and Kasane directly into camp.
