Motswiri stands on the banks of the Selinda Spillway in the far west corner of Northern Botswana’s Selinda Reserve. This beautiful and remote area combines the open flood plains of the Okavango Delta to the West and North of the camp with the thick, riverine forests lining the Selinda Spillway to the East. Motswiri camp is located in the world renowned Selinda Reserve and operates exclusively on over 120,000 acres of pristine, African bush. Due to the diversity of the vegetation, the birding is superb. The reserve is also home to giraffe, zebra, tsessebe, Roan Antelope, Sable, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and many elephant.
Motswiri Camp consists of five large and tastefully appointed en-suite, classic meru tents all on raised decking that overlook the Selinda Spillway where the elephants regularly come to bathe in the afternoons. Each tent has its own large decked veranda. Motswiri Camp also has a specially-designed family unit. The main area of the camp offers a large, comfortable sitting area with separate dining. There is also a small plunge pool for those hot October afternoons. In addition, there is a separate viewing platform which overlooks a deep pool where the elephants come to drink.
Motswiri Camp offers walking safaris, horse riding safaris, canoeing, motorboat activities (water level dependent), mokoro excursions and game drives. For horse riding enthusiasts (experienced riders only) the camp also offers 5 and 7 night riding safaris which utilise a remote fly camp. The Camp has twenty well schooled horses stabled in camp, which are accustomed to riding in big game areas. Horse riding should be pre-booked and guests should bring their own boots and half chaps. For walking enthusiasts there are similar multi-night trails which make use of the fly camp.
