Linyanti Kwando & Selinda

Kwando is a vast concession of 232,000ha on the northern border of Botswana, bordered on the east by the Kwando river and to the south by the Selinda Concession. Kwando is an exclusive concession with only two small camps. 80km of permanent river frontage offers refuge to abundant hippo and crocodile while the open flood plains to the west are home to a wide variety of plains game, large numbers of lion, wild dog, hyena and cheetah. Sitatunga and lechwe inhabit the reedbeds and there are also over 300 species of bird. The advantage of visiting Kwando is the exclusivity it offers and the flexibility that is the watchword of the two camps in this area.

Linyanti - Selinda

At 135,000ha (300,000acres), the Reserve straddles the Selinda Spillway that connects the watersystem of the Linyanti and Kwando rivers to the Okavango Delta. The lush floodplains attract a wide variety of wildlife that come for grazing and water.  Since the area is devoid of contours, the Spillway can run in both directions and has been known to run in both simultaneously, depending on water levels at either end.

Waterways and floodplains blend into open grassland dotted with palm trees and woodland. Birdlife is good herewith both wetland and savannah species to be seen and wildlife too is fairly consistant all year round although in the dry winter months, numbers swell as game moves in from the dryer plains to graze. The lions here have acquired a taste for hippo and kills have now become a fairly regular thing, which you may be lucky enough to see. There are also resident leopard, wild dog and cheetah in addition to plenty of plains game.
