Ancient migratory routes for both humans and animals run through this territory. Indigenous San Bushmen, Botswana’s first inhabitants, have tales interwoven with this land, painting their stories in rock art.

The wildlife of Selinda, from lion prides to the resident pack of wild dogs, is emblematic of the area’s robust biodiversity. Birds, including the carmine bee-eaters, martial eagles, and wattled crane, add splashes of color and drama to the skies. The plant life, marked by cyclical resurrection and decay, with termite mounds gradually becoming tree-laden islands, embodies the rhythm of nature – a dance of life in the midst of flooding and drought.

Best Time To Visit: Selinda Reserve

The best time to visit Selinda Reserve is generally in the winter months, which see the peak of wildlife concentrations in the area. This period sees animals migrating from arid zones, enhancing game viewing prospects. However, the summer’s rains, apart from ushering in a burst of green, lure birdwatchers and photographers with vibrant avian spectacles and dramatic landscapes although much of the wildlife can often disperse at this time.
