Safari Botswana Motswiri

Safari Botswana Motswiri

Welcome to RAW (ride and walk) Botswana! We invite you to journey with us through spectacular landscapes, discover the wealth of flora and fauna, marvel at the intricate ecosystems and experience close up encounters with our resident and migratory wildlife.

Our exclusive, personalized Riding and Walking Safaris are based in the remote and beautiful Selinda Reserve in Northern Botswana.

Safari Botswana Motswiri

Our safaris are camp based (with a seasonal fly camping option) at Motswiri Camp, which was completely renovated in 2010, and incorporates the latest in comfort and environmental standards. Camp is staffed by a team with more than 50 years' experience of hosting low impact safaris in Botswana.

The reserve's diverse vegetation results in superb birding, and it is home to giraffe, zebra, tsessebe, lion, leopard, cheetah and the rare roan antelope, sable and wild dog. Many large herds of elephant and buffalo migrate through the reserve during the year.

The reserve is unusual in its clear definition between floodplains and permanently dry areas, making it uniquely suited to both riding and walking safaris. Whether you wish to spend your whole safari on a horse or on foot, or to mix the two, we look forward to sharing this unique and majestic part of Botswana with you.

Motswiri is located on the banks of the spectacular Selinda Spillway, an ancient watercourse linking the Okavango and Kwando-Linyanti floodplains.

The reserve combines the open floodplains of the Okavango Delta to the immediate west and north of camp with the riverine forests lining the Spillway to the east. We operate exclusively in over 120,000 pristine acres.

Each day's safari starts and finishes in the comfort of the camp. Delicious, wholesome food is a given, and there is an opportunity to relive (and possibly enhance!) the events of the day over a candlelit dinner each evening.

During the dry season, longer safaris can include a ride out to our rustic but comfortable fly camp, facilitating exploration of the more remote and inaccessible parts of the reserve.
