Motswiri Camp (RAW Botswana) | Selinda Spillway, Northern Botswana
A camp enviably located on the banks of the Selinda Spillway in northern Botswana – offers horseback safaris, walking trails, boating, mekoro, canoeing, fishing and game drive experiences in one of the country’s most exquisite wildlife areas.
It is a small, environmentally sustainable camp with 5 tented suites overlooking the spillway. Motswiri (RAW Botswana) camp is largely solar-powered, and promotes low impact living in this unique and fragile ecosystem supporting an untamed extravagance of animal and birdlife.
The camp operates exclusively on 120 000 acres of a magnificent, world-renowned tract of land on the Selinda Spillway. 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.
Accommodation is sited on the raised banks of the spillway, the five tented suites are positioned to enjoy the expansive views of this wild utopia. Each tent is elevated on wooden decking, and the canvas structures are airy, naturally and subtly decorated with classic wooden furnishings and comfortable furniture.
Each of the tents is spaced well apart and has a self-contained shower, loo, and large decked verandah. Beds can be configured for double or twin accommodation, while a family tent specifically accommodates for parents and children.
Motswiri (RAW Botswana) Camp is an activity-based camp offering great flexibility to satisfy all guests’ choice of activity; including horseback safaris, walking trails, game drives, mokoro cruises, canoeing, motorised boating safaris, fishing, and bird watching in the inimitable Selinda Reserve.
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.
Walking trails suit groups of 6 guests or less, and offers great opportunities for nature photography. This activity is about tracking, searching for wildlife, bird watching, detailed study of flora and fauna, and can be interspersed with fishing and swimming. Guides will tailor the walking trails to suit guests’ interests.
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.
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.
Selinda’s diverse vegetation brings a variety of bird species to the camp 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.
