The Perfect Family Safari in the Chobe Enclave

Even amongst the most discerning of travellers, the Linyanti Channel is fast becoming Botswana’s most sought-after wildlife haven. Nestled between the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rich yet diverse ecosystem that is fed by a permanent river flow. At the core of this wildlife haven is Linyanti Ebony, this intimate camp is made up of just four tents making it perfect for a more private and family oriented safari lodge experience. A unique place where you can embrace the “digital detox” and slip into the rhythm of an authentic and game-filled safari experience.

Built on raised decking overlooking the Linyanti Marsh, Linyanti Ebony is an intimate tented camp granting panoramic views of its exquisite natural setting. The camp’s mindful design offers an authentic, eco-conscious base from which to explore this significant wilderness. The main area encompasses an expansive lounge and dining area, sparkling plunge pool, cosy fire circle and boma; the perfect place to strengthen family ties on your Chobe safari. The spacious two-bedroom family tent has a self-contained lounge area and private deck looking out over the wetlands plus, a spacious en-suite bathroom that features a shower and roll-top bath. Larger family groups or parties of friends travelling together can reserve Linyanti Ebony exclusively with a minimum of eight people.  

Linyanti Ebony is home to some fantastic wildlife including a healthy population of predators such as lion, wild dog and several more elusive species delighting our guests year-round. Your memorable Chobe family safariis characterised by serene, sweeping scenes awaits. Evening time, our guests are treated to a concert of honking hippos and chirruping frogs, the perfect backing track to an al-fresco meal served beneath a star-studded night sky.  Explore the pristine riverine ecosystem of a Chobe safari on foot or cruise through the crystal-clear waterways on an expertly guided mokoro trip, marvelling at the bird and aquatic life as you go.

  • We had the privilege of being guided by Maitapiso Mosiiwa (Mighty) and immediately hit it off with him. He was kind, gentle, knowledgeable, open to learning and lots and lots of fun! It was my 60th birthday and he even delivered a spectacular meteor explosion that very evening!  An extra special event that was included in the deal (we didn’t know this) was a 30-minute flight over the Linyanti marsh, which was spectacular.

  • Our family had a fantastic time at the Linyanti Ebony. It was magical and it was all because of the camp staff. We were greeted by James 007 at the airway and my whole family just adored him. He was so much fun, very intelligent and passionate about his field. We saw so many amazing animal sitings ( Lions, giraffes, wild dogs, zebras, monkeys, elephants up close and personal, you name it!)

  • From the welcome with staff singing traditional songs at the tops of their voices, to the surprise breakfast al fresco on the edge of the wetlands on our last morning – Linyanti Ebony made us feel truly at home and as if we were part of the family. The tented accommodation has a colonial feel, the food was outstanding and I must mention Cassie who is outstanding. She will do everything to ensure that your stay is perfect. We were ably guided by Des who was a walking encyclopaedia and loved his photography, passing on tips to help me with mine.

Our local foundation projects

The Vuche Vuche Basket Weaving Project aims to empower women from the local community through basket weaving. This initiative creates employment opportunities whilst displaying Botswana’s heritage and culture through beautiful crafts. Baskets are for sale at ABC trading posts, and guests can visit Vuche Vuche to learn basket weaving and experience traditional dances.

Primary School Disability Unit

Kachikau Primary School Disability unit currently accommodates about 32 students with disabilities from the villages in Chobe, Botswana. The unit provides schooling, accommodation, and daily meals for the learners. The school infrastructure was ill-equipped to support learners with special needs as it lacked basic infrastructures such as wheelchair ramps and paved walkways. This made it increasingly difficult for learners using a wheelchair to move around the school premises.

Female Guides Training

Women from communities in Botswana do not have access to the same career opportunities as safari guides, compared to their male counterparts. This career is still largely a male-dominated one, with little active investment, training, or skills development in female guides that would empower them to pursue their dreams and provide for their families. Linked to this dynamic, there is also a scarcity of job opportunities currently available for female guides in camps in the area.
