Linyanti Tented Camp
Linyanti Tented Camp is situated in the exclusive, Linyanti Wildlife Reserve in Northern Botswana near the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The camp is built in a secluded area of the 125,000 hectare reserve. The region’s key feature is the Linyanti River and marshes, which are complemented by the contrasting dry woodlands inland. Massive lagoons and steadily flowing rivers abound with papyrus and phragmites. The heavily forested riverine fringes blend into dry countryside further inland, away from the river.
This area is best known for its enormous herds of Elephant, which move down to the Linyanti River at the start of our winter months and only retrace their steps inland once the main rains arrive. Sable and Roan Antelope occur, as well as Lion, Leopard and Wild Dog. The marshes are home to Red Lechwe, Sitatunga, Hippo, Crocodiles and wonderful birdlife. Moving along the fringes of the waterways, guests can see Kudu, Zebra, Buffalo, Waterbuck and Impala.
The camp sleeps a maximum of eight guests in five comfortable tents, all with en suite facilities (hot and cold running water, showers and flush toilets). The dining area and pub area are also under canvas. The camp has the rustic charm of an old style safari camp with a great atmosphere and feeling of intimacy.
Daily activities are varied and include game drives, both by day and by night in open 4x4s, game and bird walks, canoeing in stable “Canadian” canoes on the large lagoons and boating on the smaller waterways.
