A magical experience appealing to travellers, the Selinda Canoe Trail is a canoeing and walking adventure safari, replicating the safari experiences of old as it navigates along the Selinda Spillway in the heart of the Selinda Reserve. The days are spent paddling eastwards along the Spillway, stopping whenever there is something of interest to be seen along the banks, such as the many wildlife and bird species found in the area.
The dome tents are practical and comfortable, and designed for safety. They are furnished with comfortable bedrolls and good linen. You will have bucket showers with hot water in the evening, but lavatories are just a “long drop” with a fixed seat plus a shovel. There are chairs for lunch and for sitting round the campfire at night.
The cook prepares meals on the fire – and you will be astounded by what he produces.
This 45km journey takes place in 18-foot Canadian canoes with each day beginning at the break of dawn. After being dropped at the trails starting point all wildlife viewing is by foot or canoe. Bird watching and swimming are also fun and frequent options.
