Linyanti Bush Camp

Linyanti Bush Camp

Linyanti Bush Camp is set in a private reserve which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in the Chobe Enclave to the north of Botswana.

The camp offers light, airy rooms under canvas. The tents are spacious and offer a bedroom and living area with comfortable sofas and footstools, an en-suite bathroom with flushing toilet, hot and cold running water, and a raised deck at the front where guests can sit and enjoy the views over the Linyanti Marshes.

The Linyanti Swamps are one of the most attractive areas in the Chobe enclave as they are the only source of water in the dry months meaning a lot of wildlife migrates here. The area is best known for its large populations of elephant and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers especially during the dry season (May to October). They move down to the Linyanti River at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive. Plains game includes giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland, sable, and roan antelope. The rare and elusive sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile can be found in the surrounding marshes, and nocturnal creatures such as aardvark, civet and leopard can be encountered at night. The area has its predators in significant numbers too: lion, hyena, wild dog, and cheetah. The diversity of the environment offers spectacular birding all year round, including a variety of raptors and owls.

Activities on offer consist primarily of game drives in the company of expert. Guests can also explore the Linyanti marshes in a mokoro; a unique and relaxing opportunity to observe nature up close. (subject to water levels)
