This was our first time in Africa so we were not sure what to expect. We were greeted on arrival with an African singing welcome which was a lovely personal touch. The luxury tent was fantastic and enormous, excellent bathroom with running water in the shower a really comfortable bed and a nice couch looking over the balcony.
Food was excellent with great variety. You feel almost like family with all meals with your guide as well as the camp manager.
Esse was an excellent guide committed to giving us an excellent experience. We saw lots of animals. On the drive back to the air strip Esse was committed to finding lions for us and then we went via a marsh area which was amazing for the number of animals.
Linyanti was definitely a highlight of our holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Linyanti Bush Camp offers the perfect setting for an authentic and wild safari experience. As the only source of water in the dry months, the Linyanti marshes are one of the most sought after destinations in Northern Botswana, boasting a great diversity of game and a peaceful atmosphere. The area offers spectacular birding all year round and is best known for its large herds of elephants that move down to the Linyanti River at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive. Lion, sable, roan, leopard, and wild dog are also frequent visitors to Linyanti as is the elusive sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile. Bordering the western boundary of Chobe in the Chobe Enclave, the Linyanti Bush Camp is an intimate 12-bedded tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve. Activities from the camp include game drives, walking safaris, game viewing from hides, spot-lighting, bird watching, boating and fishing safaris as well as guided mokoro safaris, when water levels permit. Accommodation at the Linyanti Bush Camp is far from primitive with spacious tents, comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets, fixed showers and hot water. ... more less
