The Selinda Concession is in the north eastern regions of the Delta. This area has large areas of open savannah and on your Okavango safari you will see large herds of plains game, including Impala and Lechwe. In spring you will see large herds of Zebra which arrive to feed on the new grass.
The Selinda Reserve is a 1350km square wildlife Reserve that covers most of the region known as the Selinda or Magwegqana Spillway. This is an ancient river that links the Okavango with the Linyanti and Kwando wetlands. This river had been dry for nearly 30 years when it started flowing in 2009. It has flowed for the last 4 years.
As the floodplain is so flat the river can flow in two directions, and in good years will flow in both directions! This occurs when waters from the Okavango spill into the Selinda Spillway and flows from West to East. Then in the East of the reserve water from the Kwando and Linyanti Rivers flows up from East to West, meeting up in the middle.
