Linyanti Bush Camp was an amazing place. Our tent was very comfortable, the food was very good, and the staff was wonderful. We tracked lions and had many up close and personal experiences with elephants. We even spent a couple of days watching a lion make a young elephant his meal. We also saw zebra, giraffe, hippos, warthogs, cape buffalo, kudus, impalas, baboons and a wide variety of birds. Since our trip was in September, the dry season, we were able to see the animals quite easily. The sunsets were spectacular. However, the staff at Linyanti made our experience the most memorable. Kirstie and Ollie, the managers, made sure we were well taken care of from being greeted with a drink and a song upon arrival to handing us a cold wet towel every time we came in from a game drive. Lepo gave me a lesson in napkin folding as every night we were greeted with one of her creations. Our guide, Winah, was the best. He was a wonderful, kind, extremely intelligent man who truly loved sharing his world with us. And that he did! We learned everything from how to track a lion to the differences among all the types of animal dung. We really got an education. After three days, it was very difficult to leave since we were felt so at home. We made friends and memories we will have for a lifetime!
- 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
