The Selinda Canoe Trail is the only canoe safari in Botswana, introduced after the Selinda Spillway flowed for the first time in 30 years in 2009. In 2012, between May and October, Great Plains Conservation operates a 4 day/3 night canoeing and walking safari along a 45km stretch of the Selinda Spillway (a watercourse that runs between the Okavango Delta in the west, to the Linyanti Swamps in the east). This is expeditionary stuff, with all equipment, food, drinks taken downstream by canoe, exploring uncharted side channels from the main spillway, and encountering amazing wildlife at close quarters in 320,000 acres of wilderness. A maximum of 8 guests, with a professional guide and a support team of four. Guests won’t see anyone else. It’s an activity to do now, in the next few years, before the Spillway perhaps dries up for another 30 years.
