Exclusive game viewing in uninhabited wilderness

Linyanti is situated in the extreme northwest section of the Chobe National Park and also includes several private concessions including some of Botswana’s most luxurious safari camps. It’s adjacent to the Linyanti River, which courses east into the Chobe and forms a natural border between Botswana and Namibia.

I so enjoyed the remoteness, beauty and excitement of Linyanti. It has such a spirit-feeding wilderness feel about it, something that many other destinations in Africa have, sadly, lost.

More on Linyanti Concession holidays

The Linyanti River is a permanent water source, attracting huge herds of elephant, buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, especially as the dry season wears on. 

Linyanti is famed for its predators, including rare wild dogs, leopard, lions and hyena. Sightings of hunts are common, and lucky guests might even have a sighting of interactions between predators. Of course, abundant prey is what attracts the predators, such as kudu, impala, waterbuck and majestic roan and sable antelope. It's also possible to see the rare and elusive sitatunga, a shy, swamp-living antelope, as well as the water-loving red lechwe. Visitors will find spectacular riverine forest snaking along the Linyanti River in the North.

Other major habitats include savanna, marsh, floodplains, and mopane woodland. Lodges and tented camps in Linyanti are small and exclusive, contributing to feelings of remoteness and true immersion in uninhabited wilderness. Access is via charter flight or overland safari, and safaris to Linyanti are often combined with other destinations such as Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta, or other areas of Chobe National Park.
