City & Safari

Cape Town | Selinda Reserve | Okavango Delta

13 days | 12 nights


Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills and desert plains. The country’s primary tourist drawcard is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world.

These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host a significant pride of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.

Day 1-4. The Silo Hotel, Cape Town

The Silo Hotel is an exclusive five star hotel towering above the V&A Waterfront, surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City. This magical hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture, and design. 

The Silo Hotel has been built in the grain elevator portion of a historic grain silo complex, occupying six floors above the Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa). Zeitz MOCAA houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art.

Day 4-7. Okavango Explorers Camp, Selinda Reserve

Okavango Explorers Camp is a brand-new Explorer Collection Okavango Delta safari camp located in the southwest area of Botswana’s private Selinda Reserve. This area may be new to guests but has been known to Great Plains for many years as one teeming with wildlife. The camp’s location is a unique combination of two iconic ecosystems at the upper Okavango Delta water system and the famed Selinda Spillway.

Day 7-10. Sitatunga Private Island Camp, Okavango Delta

Sitatunga Private Island Camp is very 'Robinson Crusoe, desert island-ish.' It is designed with a 'salvage' inspired reference, complete with giant basket shapes as a nod to the Bayei and other local Okavango fishing ancestries. Thick shaggy thatch cover canvas roofs and walls. There is thick pole woodwork, feeling like masts salvaged from a shipwreck, but the very spacious inner floorspace is actually some of the largest Great Plains have ever build.

Day 10-13. Zarafa Camp, Selinda Reserve

Zarafa Camp and The Dhow Suite at Zarafa, a Great Plains Conservation Réserve-Collection safari camp and Relais & Châteaux member property, is located on the private Selinda Reserve, linking Botswana’s Okavango Delta with the Linyanti waterways. Every area of the camp offers stunning views over the Zibadianja Lagoon. The Selinda Reserve is home to leopard, lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, zebra and giraffe, and some uncommon species such as African wild dogs, roan and sable. And for birders, the nearby African skimmer colony is a highlight.
