Motswiri Camp is located on the banks of the spectacular Selinda Spillway, an ancient watercourse linking the Okavango and Kwando-Linyanti floodplains. The reserve combines the open floodplains of the Okavango delta to the immediate west and north of camp with the riverine forests lining the Spillway to the east. The camp also has the advantage of operating exclusively in more than 48 sq km.
This is a small and personal camp, stylishly and comfortably rebuilt in 2010 and largely solar powered. The central mess area has a large comfortable sitting area with separate dining. It has wonderful views of the Spillway and the wildlife that is attracted to it to drink. There is a discreet sunbathing area with its own plunge pool. Sited on the raised banks of the Spillway, the five tents are airy, well-spaced apart, and each has its own self-contained shower, lavatory and large decked veranda, and can be configured for double bed or twin accommodation.
Activites include wildlife drives, mokoro rides, walking, fishing and riding (approximately 3-5 hours in the saddle per day). The camp has between 20 and 24 horses, ranging from thoroughbreds to Boerperds, Arabs and Kalahari crosses, large to small. A wide range of riding abilities is catered for, including beginners.
