An Adventure Under the African Sky

Experience a life-changing Linyanti safari is in store at our seasonal camp located on the southern banks of the Linyanti River in northern Botswana. The true art of safari is waking up with the crisp dawn air to the sound of birds rejoicing. Enjoying a warm cup of coffee, anticipating what the day has to offer. It’s heading out into the wild, open plains on foot in search of new ground and thrilling interactions. In the fast-paced, man-made world we live in, there is a pull towards authentic and honest travel and experiences. We’re going back to our original ‘Bush Camps’ roots and introducing our newest expedition-style camp to Botswana, with Linyanti Expeditions.

 

Linyanti Wilderness Reserve is a private concession boasting splendid scenery of untouched grasslands, riverine forest and meandering lagoons. The sumptuous style belies the simplicity of the camp.  Organic layers with a comfortable lived-in feel are imbued with elegant touches of copper and cut-glass add a dash of old-world charm. Underscored by our ethos of eco-sensitivity, this Linyanti safari lodge touches the earth lightly. With only 6 tents, the camp has an intimate atmosphere, ensuring a personalized service for each guest. The main area has two canvas-covered hubs; a dining area with an exposed kitchen and an open lounge. As with most of our camps, the campfire is at the centre, drawing guests to enjoy the authentic experience of the African bush outside. The tents are firmly rooted on the ground, giving that extra level of connection to nature. Each room has en-suite bathrooms with chemical eco-friendly toilets and al fresco bucket showers. The wow factor in the rooms is the ‘star suite’. Each tent has a gazebo extension, where beds can be moved at night to give the experience of sleeping beneath a blanket of glimmering stars, immersing yourself in the wonders of the wilderness while still staying in the security of a mesh-enclosed area.

The location of our Linyanti safari lodge in the northern region of Botswana enjoys an abundance of wildlife. The area is frequented by vast herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra that attract iconic predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dogs.   The peaceful African night is often punctuated by the lion’s gruff, baritone contact call, wild dogs yipping or hyenas whooping in celebration of meal or morsel. Activities to enjoy on your Linyanti safari include walking safaris, river activities such as mokoro trips, day and night game drives. Linyanti Expeditions offers awe-inspiring birding with Carmine bee-eaters nest on the banks of the Linyanti River. All these are complimentary activities and led by our qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you. Walking and mokoro activities are possible for children over the age of sixteen years, making this Linyanti safari ideal for families with older children.

Let the sounds of the vibrant African night envelope you as you drift off into restful slumber after an adventure-filled day.

Reviews

  • The people at this camp, the tender care we received and the abundant wildlife will always be fixed in our mind. We are serious about returning and we know we will enjoy the experiences even more. And I will have even more jokes for ‘007‘.”

  • We stayed at the new Linyanti Expeditions for our honeymoon and had an incredible visit. The location is beautiful, with incredible sunset views across the Linyanti marshes into Namibia. Wildlife sightings were great, from lions and leopards to huge herds of elephants, buffalo, and antelope.

  • “We booked again in 2019 to stay at Linyanti Expeditions Camp – a temporary walking camp in the same concession. We requested Mighty again and were delighted that he was flown in from his posting at Khwai to guide us. What great customer relations! What makes African Bush Camps stand out from the rest is the management’s support and training of their guides.”
