An Authentic Safari Experience in the Chobe Enclave

Spend your time exploring the raw African wilderness on thrilling game drives, learn about the fascinating fauna and flora on walking safaris or float serenely along the waterways in a mokoro (canoe). A life-changing wilderness experience awaits you at Linyanti Bush Camp. With just six luxury tents, Linyanti Bush Camp offers an intimate Chobe safari experience in a private concession on the border of Botswana’s iconic Chobe National Park. The Chobe Enclave teems with wildlife and is best known for its large herds of elephants and buffalo. Our Chobe safari lodge sits on the banks of the Linyanti Wetlands – a significant area that is one of the primary sources of water during the drier months. Look forward to exceptional and diverse wildlife encounters year-round.

Linyanti Bush Camp is a traditional safari camp, with a soulful, eclectic scattering of interesting African artefacts. The elevated communal area offers a cosy lounge, bar and dining area with a well-stocked bookshelf where you may enjoy some quiet respite after a full day of exploring. Relaxing at the sparkling pool is a wonderful place to drink in the beautiful views of the unique Linyanti landscape. Battery charging points are provided in the main lodge area for your convenience.  

Whether you enjoy wildlife viewing from the comfort of the camp, from a safari vehicle, on foot or by scenic helicopter flip, your experiences from our Chobe safari lodge of the marshes, woodlands and savanna plains below you will sharpen the senses and offer an in-depth look at Linyanti’s diverse ecosystem. The freedom of being located on a private reserve means our knowledgeable guides operate exclusive night game drives for a glimpse into Botswana’s mesmeric nocturnal world. All activities are complimentary and are led by our knowledgeable guides who possess a genuine passion for their trade.

  • The staff are incredibly thoughtful and spared no effort in making sure our experience was nothing short of exceptional. Lebo, the host, is super attentive and kind – including arranging a birthday cake for my birthday and a special dinner to celebrate our honeymoon.

  • Everything about Linyanti Bush Camp was exceptional. Staff, food, accommodation, thrills, it was just perfect. It’s a small camp with a big heart. James, also known as 007 went out of his way to find the best game and made each bush drive exciting and informative, Lebo was just the most helpful host you could wish for, always smiling, ready to help with anything…

  • The neat thing about Linyanti was the diversity of environments in close proximity as well as the varied game. James 007 was our guide and did an amazing job tracking and finding the game. We weren’t constrained by roads – James took us everywhere. We loved the experience – you just have to let James take you on the adventure!
