The Linyanti Reserve is owned by Wilderness Safaris, southern Africa's most luxurious safari operator. Located just to the west of the famous Savute marsh area of the Chobe National Park, the reserve is one of the best examples of Botswana's high-end private reserves. The game viewing on offer here is simply superb: all the predators are brilliantly visible and there are high concentrations of elephant and buffalo. When you add in the fact that Linyanti is home to some of the most exclusive lodges in Africa, you have one of the continent's finest safari regions.
What differentiates the Linyanti Reserve from the neighbouring Chobe National Park is the fact that the reserve is private, open only 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. Show me more >
Linyanti: where to stay
The flagship property of the Linyanti reserve is Kings Pool, an ultra luxurious and very famous camp that comes complete with private plunge pools and à la carte dinners. The quality of food and service here is exceptional but the quality of product is reflected in the price, at approximately $2,300pppn in high season! Show me more >
Linyanti: when to go
As with the majority of Botswana’s big game areas, the Linyanti comes into its peak game viewing season from the 1st June with the very best months being late July, August, September, October and the beginning of November. Show me more >
All camps offer day and night drives and walking safaris; boating trips are possible from Duma Tau and Kings Pool, water levels depending. There are also a number of hides in the Linyanti which can be booked for an overnight sleep out in the bush.
