SmokeSilver Travel...explore the great outdoors

SELINDA CANOE TRAIL

Trip Location: AFRICA

Botswana

SELINDA CANOE TRAIL

For decades no water made it down the Selinda spillway, the waterway that links the Okavango Delta with the Linyanti water system. But in 2009 water finally made it all the way down, connecting the two waterways and allowing the first people in decades to explore this new ecosystem. Canoeing offers a new perspective on game viewing and gets you out on the water where new experiences await you.

Spend 4 days travelling eastwards along the spillway exploring the landscape and setting up impromptu fly camps wherever looks good. Fall asleep lulled by the sounds of water and the Botswanan bush. Look out for the many species of birds that call this area home, along with larger game such as elephant and buffalo. The spillway has relatively few hippos and crocodiles so, depending on how you approach these things, its either more relaxing or less exciting!

Keep your eyes open for anything interesting going on on the banks, because the good thing about canoes is you can pull into the bank, get out and go off on foot exploring, following tracks and generally having a really good look around. The pace of the trip is relaxed so there's plenty of time to head off into the bush.

This is a rarely visited area which adds to the sense of adventure you feel here. Canoeing through one of Africa's most impressive wildernesses, spotting the local wildlife and setting up camp wherever you feel like, all add up to make this the kind of trip you will never forget.

    Mobile Tented Camp | AFRICA

    A mobile tented camp is light enough to be packed up quickly and moved to you next destination.......                                                                             

    What it might lack in decorative touches it more than makes up for by getting you into the outdoors. Mobile camps allow you to move on with ease to find new adventures. They also cut away the distractions of the modern world and cocoon you with nature which makes for a more rounded experience - you don't shut nature out when you go to bed. Imagine sitting round the fire on the river bank of the Zambezi and then being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African bush......

    A mobile tented camp will have have large and sturdy tents, that you can stand up in. The bed are comfortable and made up with linen. Each tent will have a private bush bathroom with bucket showers and long or short drop toilets. The camp will be moved on and reerected by the camp staff while you enjoy the days activities. You will then return to camp for a delicious meal and drinks around the campfire.
