Linyanti Ebony Camp is a small, family friendly, exclusive camp (and part of the Linyanti Bush Camp). My daughter and i spent 4 nights there in April and had a fantastic time. We were picked up from the air strip and went straight on safari in the Chobe National Park. Within 20 minutes we had seen elephants, zebra, giraffe and lions. We were welcomed to the camp by all the staff and were looked after from the time we got up until we went to bed by our wonderful guide (Butler), the camp interim manager (Violet) and periodically by the staff. The room was luxurious, we loved our out door bath and the food and hospitality were spectacular. Our only complaint was that there was too much food (and it was so delicious there was no option but to eat it)! I would recommend this camp and experience to anyone. We had never been on safari and are now completely hooked. We are saving up for a return visit.
- 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
