Best Places To Stay On Safari In The Linyanti
For an exclusive experience in Botswana, Linyanti is the reserve to go fro. With all the same perks of the fantastic Chobe wildlife, but with access only for those staying at the three Wilderness Safaris owned lodges, this is a really remarkable place. There is a huge concentration of game and the lodge prides itself with supreme luxury. We believe Linyanti is of an unbeatable overall quality. Aside from the great concentration of mammals, including a high density of the extremely endangered wild dog, Linyanti is fantastic for bird enthusiasts. This is an incredible area to view carmine bee-eaters in the wet season. Thousands of these gregarious, brilliantly coloured birds can be seen nesting along the banks of the river and on the open plains.
What differentiates the Linyanti Reserve from the neighbouring Chobe National Park is the fact that the reserve is private, only open to guests staying in one of the three camps available. The habitat is virtually identical to the majority of the Chobe National Park (the river section excluded), yet exclusivity is guaranteed. Because the reserve is private, unlike in the national parks there are no restrictions on the activities that can be offered and animal sightings will be far more controlled and relaxed. Night drives, walking safaris, fishing, sleep outs in the reserves various hides, fly camping and boating (at Kings Pool and Duma Tau only) are all on offer for those who wish. These opportunities present once-in-a-life-time moments to view wildlife in a truly isolated and immersed experience that the national park cannot offer. Once you step out of the vehicle and embark upon an adventure where it is only you and nature, this is when you will truly understand the true magnificence of the wild.
There are a number of safari camps and lodges in Linyanti Reserve and below we have listed some of our favourites:
