Ride and Walk Botswana
Rawbotswana’s Motswiri Camp is based in the remote and beautiful Selinda Reserve. A mix of dry savannah, riverine bush and wide, open floodplains makes for a great change of pace and experience on every ride. Our safaris last between 3 and 7 nights and on longer safaris, combines our beautiful Little Motswiri camp which is located 12kms downstream from Motswiri.
Rides are normally for no more than 6 guests, accompanied by a professional guide and back up guide with a choice of English or trails saddles.With over twenty well-schooled Thoroughbreds, Boerperds, Arabs and Kalahari Crosses, large to small, we match the needs of every rider.
The reserve’s diverse vegetation means that there is a good range of mammal species in the area including giraffe, zebra, tssebe, lion, leopard, cheetah, roan and sable antelope and wild dog. Many large herds of elephant and buffalo migrate through the reserve throughout the year making game viewing in Selinda particularly good. The birdlife in the area is also brilliant with a large cross section of water birds, eagles and migrants.
What makes Motswiri a superb choice is that it also has a wide range of other activities including walking, boating, mekoros (traditional dug out canoes) and game drives in the months where the flood is at its lowest (November to April).
Accommodation and dining at Motswiri are first class and tents are all stylishly appointed and en-suite shower and loo. There is also a small pool to cool off in the hotter months as well as a large, open dining and sitting area with spectacular views over the Selinda Spillway.
