Available solely for exclusive use, Linyanti Bush Camp is a small and intimate tented camp besides the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve bordering the western boundary of Chobe National Park.
The camp consists of five spacious and airy en-suite tents, all of which are stylishly decorated to incorporate traditional explorer style with modern conveniences. The décor is neutral and simple, but with splashes of colour and pattern found throughout to add character. The tents also feature their own private verandas with chairs to sit and enjoy the views from.
The communal area of the camp is built on stilts overlooking the floodplains and marsh below, and is the ideal spot to watch passing game from. After dinner, guests can head down to the boma for drinks around the campfire and a spot of stargazing.
The area is renowned for large populations of elephant and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers, and especially during the dry season. The list of regular spotted game includes lion, sable, roan, leopard, wild dog, the rare and elusive sitatunga antelope and red lechwe. Hippos and crocodiles are abundant in the surrounding marshes.
Activities from the camp include game drives, walking safaris, spotlighting by night or sessions spent in game-viewing hides. In addition, the area's relative remoteness makes for spectacular birding all year round.
The Linyanti Swamp is the area's only source of water in the dry months so attracts a huge diversity of game including enormous herds of elephants which move down to the river at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive.
