Linyanti Ebony Camp

Linyanti Ebony Camp

The Linyanti swamps are one of the most attractive areas in the Chobe Enclave, and attract diverse species of The Linyanti marshes are one of the most attractive areas in the Botwana’s Chobe region and are home to an excellent diversity of wildlife year round since they are the only source of water during the drier months. The area’s relative remoteness and abundant wildlife makes it a favored safari destination and one of the most sought after regions in northern Botswana.

Known for the populations of elephant and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers during the dry season (May to October), the area also attracts a variety of plains game including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland, sable, roan, red lechwe , and the rare and elusive Sitatunga antelope. Hippo and crocodile can be found in the marshes, and nocturnal creatures such as aardvark, civet, and leopard are prevalent at night. Major predators in the area include lion, hyena, wild dog, cheetah, and leopard. Birdwatching in this region is particularly excellent.

Linyanti Ebony Camp is an intimate camp in the traditional style of early explorer camps. Overlooking the banks of the Linyanti marshes, it stands side by side with its sister camp, Linyanti Bush Camp. Accommodation is in four tents built on an elevated wooden deck. One of the tents is a luxury family unit. The tents are spacious and have a bedroom, living area, and an elegant en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet and a shower. An outdoor patio at the front provides great views over the surrounding swamps.

The main dining and lounge area is filled with cozy armchairs, and a small pool beckons during the heat of the day. As with other bush camps, the day’s activities determine the time and make-up of the meals. The day usually starts with an early light breakfast, followed by a more substantial brunch and light lunch. Afternoon tea is served before the afternoon/evening drive, and a delicious three-course dinner is standard.

Professionally-guided, 4x4 game drives are the primary activity. Night drives are also allowed. More unique activities include walking safaris, off-road driving, and cruises through the marshes in fiberglass canoes.
