The Selinda Reserve is one of Africa’s great wildlife Reserves. It borders the Linyanti to the West and the Kwando Reserve to the North. The Selinda Spillway is usually a dry channel that connects the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. On the rare occasion that these channels connect, the Selinda channel springs to life with a game density that is hard to beat anywhere. This is where the National Geographic film “Birth of a Pride” by Dereck and Beverly Joubert was filmed.
Selinda Camp (3 nights)
Selinda Camp pays homage first and foremost to water, with splashes of blue and crystal-clear swimming pools offering views over the equally immaculate Selinda Spillway – arrival into camp is usually by boat. Beautiful open-air public areas with gorgeous silks the billow in the breeze, provide a haven for guests enjoying the peace and tranquility this area offers.
Activities at Selinda Camp:
Mid-morning transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft transfer to Mombo Camp.
Chiefs Island was once the private hunting ground of the local Chief Moremi, but it was incorporated into the wider Moremi Game Reserve in 1976. Roughly 60km long and 10km wide, the island in only accessible by boat or, more usually light aircraft, to one of the very high-end luxury lodges and mobile camps that operate on the island itself. The island sees very low visitor numbers and is certainly Botswana’s most exclusive wildlife destination.
Mombo Camp (3 nights)
Long known as “the place of Plenty”, Mombo Camp boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators and is considered to be one of the best areas for game viewing in Africa. They are the only camp that has had reintroduced black and white rhino to Botswana after they were hunted into extinction.

The Okavango Delta: An incredible natural phenomenon that turns this part of Botswana into a swamp inland delta. All the water that flows into the delta is ultimately evaporated and does not flow into any sea or ocean. Traditionally about 11 cubic kilometres of water spreads over the 6000 -15,000km2 area. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Moremi Game Reserve, a National Park, is on the Eastern side of the Delta.
Xigera Safari Lodge (3 nights)
Xigera is Red Carnation's love letter to the magic of the African bush. Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile our guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters.
Transformed by Africa's life-enhancing beauty, it is a story of remarkable renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. The same spirit that inspired this remarkable reimagining, perhaps a complete reinvention, of an Okavango Delta safari.
This is Xigera (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. The culmination of a lifelong dream of the Tollman family, drawing on six decades of devotion to unparalleled luxury in service.
Activities at Xigera Safari Lodge:
Mid morning transfer to airstrip for transfer to Jacks Camp.
The Makgadikgadi Pan: This salt pan situated in the middle of the dry savanna of north-eastern Botswana, is one the largest self flats in the world. The pan is all that is left of the Lake Makgadikgadi which once covered an area larger than Switzerland but dried up tens of thousands of years ago.
Jacks Camp (3 nights)
Built as an homage to his father, Ralph, his son and his partner Catherine built Jacks Camp in 2003, in a traditional East African 1940’s safari style. During the wet season, the landscape transforms. Clouds of Falmingos and other migratory birds descend the heavens to decorate the watery grasslands. Herds of zebra and wildebeest materialise, drawn by the lush grass. Of course, one of the main attractions is to be able to walk through the Kalahari with a gang of habituated but, wild meerkats.
