As there are only 6 tents at Linyanti you really feel at home the minute you arrive. The staff are very happy and jolly, a lovely atmosphere. The tents are the real thing with zipper and petroleum light at night which makes it very romantic. All the mod cons are in the tent including shower and toilet and the beds are very comfortable.
Dinner with Issac, Lynette and Winna was really enjoyable. We also enjoyed the dancing and singing afterwards. The food was great but the only problem with home cooking is that you just can’t refuse a second helping. Absolutely delicious.
Game is scarcer in this area and you have to look for it but it was very adventurous and we had lots of sightings. As it is a private concession you can go off road and after tracking a lioness for nearly 2 hours we finally spotted her but as it was getting dark soon lost her in the bush. The following morning we were back on her trail and found her resting under a tree. Fantastic. We always knew when it was getting serious as Issac would stand on the hood of the jeep and direct Winna with his foot. Also had a flat tyre on a night game drive which added to the excitement. Issac is a true chieftain with an outstanding personality. His activities with board of environment protection, guide training and excellent skills in tracking are something very special.
Thank you for giving us such a wonderful time at your camp.
- 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
