Linyanti Expeditions enjoys perhaps the most secretive region of northern Botswana that sits on the banks of Linyanti wetlands, an area that is one of the main sources of water during the drier months. From amplifying the workings of the smallest creatures, to coming face-to-face with mighty beasts, your sense will be heightened. With only six tents, the camp has an intimate atmosphere, ensuring a personalized service for each guest. The wow factor is that every 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. Each tent includes a king size bed, comfortable furniture and an en-suite bathroom with al fresco bucket showers boasting one of the best views.
The activities at Linyanti Expeditions include game drives (and night drives) and guided walks in the wilderness to experience different perspectives of the beautiful land. Mokoro excursions when the waterways permit savour those moments of peace whilst being able to encounter an incredible variety of wildlife along the way. Full day walking safaris with a private guide can be pre-booked for the more adventurous. Being on a private concession Linyanti Expeditions can also head out at night for a game drive to seek out the nocturnal animals that venture out after dark.
The Linyanti marsh becomes a hive of activity as animals flock to enjoy the only source of water for miles around during the dry season. Some of the amazing sightings Linyanti Expeditions enjoys both on land and by the water are sable antelope, an abundance of hippo and crocodile wallow and elephants roam on the banks of the waterways. African wild dogs make their appearance along with hyenas and lions follow buffalo to the water. Leopards also can be seen in and around the riparian forests along the riverfronts.
