Overview

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 seasonal Selinda Spillway. 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 and game drives.

Activities are focused on game drives. During periods of high water levels, water activities may be possible but not guaranteed.

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 walking trails on request.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
