Linyanti Expeditions Introduction
The greatest highlight of the glorious Linyanti Expeditions is the addition of “star beds” in each tented suite. There are just six guest tents, and each a gazebo extension, which is enclosed by a mesh ceiling and walls, maintaining a sense of security and cover, while exposing all the millions of stars at night. Guests’ beds can be rolled out to underneath the gazebo where they can lie and admire the twinkling sky before falling asleep for a truly immersive and blissful night in nature. The camp is all about adventure and expedition, but there is no compromise on comfort.
- Six expedition-style tented rooms, simply furnished, with en suite alfresco bucket showers and star-bed gazebo.
- A main canvas-covered hub includes an open lounge and dining area, opening up, like each of the tents, onto a view of the Linyanti floodplain.
- At the centre of camp is a communal fire pit in the sand, where each evening guests can gather to sit around the dancing fire and enjoy the night sounds of the bush.
- An exposed kitchen at the end of a long, family-style dining table lets guests in on what’s cooking for each meal and invites warm interaction with the friendly camp staff and cooks.
- Paraffin-lamps glow around the camp adding gentle, romantic light and keeping things natural and wild.
Linyanti Expeditions Game Viewing and Activities
The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is an exclusive part of northern Chobe National Park, where the old Caprivi Strip joins the Chobe, which joins the Zambezi. It’s all about the wetland and lagoons on its north-facing side, which draws wild roaming wildlife during the dry winter season each year. There are large numbers of elephant, hippo, crocodile and buffalo, as well as safari favourites like impala, kudu, and zebra, among others. A good lion population in Linyanti dominates the predator landscape, not to be outnumbered by leopard and spotted hyena. The lush vegetation and solid, large trees make the perfect hangouts for leopards and baboons alike. Birdlife is celebrated with both inland and water species to be spotted, so twitchers, come prepared for a feast! The focus is on walking safaris at Linyanti Expeditions, honouring the intricacies of the natural surroundings, but fantastic game drives and mokoro cruises are also part of the experience.
Sable Alley brings spacious comfort and luxury to the prestigious Khwai Private Reserve where some of Botswana’s best wildlife viewing takes place. 12 Suites, vast and inviting, offer simple pleasures and leisurely days overlooking the marshy water.
Hyena Pan is located in the Khwai Private Reserve, bordering Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve, and is a rehabilitated wildlife area now dedicated to conservation. The area is inundated with wildlife and the camp is simple, positioned overlooking an active waterhole.
Sango Safari Camp
Sango Safari Camp is nestled under the cover of trees overlooking the Khwai River, and gets its name from the original inhabitants of the Khwai area. The camp is located on the periphery of the village of Khwai and on the boundary of Moremi Game Reserve.
