Over Linyanti Bush Camp
Sfeervol en luxe ingerichte tent met privé-badkamer, een kingsize bed en een geweldig uitzicht over de rivier; dit is uw overnachtingsplek. Ochtendsafari's, avondsafari's, een tocht per Mokoro (Botswaanse kano) of vissen; dit zijn de activiteiten die u kunt ondernemen. Met een boek op uw veranda of genietend van een glas wijn bij een voortreffelijk diner; zo komt u tot rust! Vanwege de ligging, aan de westkant van het Chobe Game Reserve, ligt ook de Okavango Delta nabij. En dit brengt een enorme variëteit aan dieren, maar ook aan safari-mogelijkheden; zowel op het land als over het water. En doordat het een klein safari camp is in een privé-game reserve zijn de safari's hier authentiek en zonder andere voertuigen om de hoek. Alle activiteiten en maaltijden zijn inbegrepen bij de prijs.

Gelegen in Chobe Enclave.
• Vogels kijken
• Game drives
Chobe National Park is een beschermd natuurgebied van ruim 10.000 km2, op slechts twee uur rijden van de grens met Zimbabwe en Zambia, waardoor u het gemakkelijk kunt combineren met een bezoek aan de Victoria Watervallen. In Chobe leven grote kuddes olifanten, ook tal van antilopensoorten zoals de kudu, eland en tsessebe. De rode lechwe en de zeer zeldzame puku komen alleen in Botswana voor. Ook vogelaars komen hier volop aan hun trekken, met maar liefst zo’n 440 soorten. De Chobe-rivier is de natuurlijke grens met Namibië; vooral in het droge seizoen ziet u hier veel wilde dieren.
Wonderful place. Game is very different to other places I have stayed in. Lots of elephants and water buffalo, very good for birds also. One thing I will mention is that the road from the airstrip to the camp was quite rough - the area was unusually dry due to late & low rainfall last year. That said it was definitely worth it. The staff were great, warm, polite and very nice. Special mention to our guide, Jamieson, who was brilliant at spotting birds and wonderfully considerate. Also special mention to our host, Connell, who on discovering it was my 50th birthday on 27 Sept arranged a small birthday celebration with a cake even though the day had passed. This will always be a special memory. Thanks to you all.
"Warm energetic staff, morning stories, entertaining evenings, very dry September 2016"
This African Bush Camp in the Chobe Enclave was booked through the very helpful Justine at Rhino Africa. We were here the 2nd week of September for 3 nights (I highly recommend a 3 night minimum at any camp). We were given notice about a month prior to travel that there would be no water based activities as the flood waters from Angola had not yet come through to the Linyanti Marsh. It was very very dry. We still managed to see lots of animals and birds and we had a safari walk and a fabulous 30-minute helicopter trip over the beautiful Okavango Delta. We arrived at Linyanti Bush Camp to a lovely enthusiast song & dance greeting by 7-9 staff members! Emmah with the infectious smile and cheerful demeanour gave us the camp and tent orientation as we sipped delicious homemade ginger lemonade. Accommodation: A beautiful large tent with small sofa & footstool, dresser, hanging closet, desk with tea and coffee making items, sink, shower, and toilet in room and a panoramic view over the marsh (no water due to dry season and drought). Very comfortable temporary home! All the African Bush Camps that we stayed in supplied shampoo, conditioner, body wash and insect repellent. We did not have the canvas dropped over the screens at night as we wanted the views and air. Be prepared to hear elephants feasting all around you tent in the wee hours! The staff will do laundry daily, but during our visit they could only wash dark colours due to the possible staining of light colours from the brown bore hole water. There is a large, comfortable common area and a small splash pool. A typical day begins with a 6 am wake up call followed by 6:30 am breakfast (â€˜giraffeâ€™ toast, porridge, cereal, granola, yogurt, fruit, cheese, meat, tea, coffee, etc), 7 am (or sooner) game drive, 9:15 am tea or coffee and snacks on the game drive, 11:15 am back to camp, lunch (meat, quiche, cheese, crackers, salads, bread, fruit, pop, wine, beer, etc) at 11:30 am, down time after lunch until afternoon tea at 3 pm, 2nd game drive at 3:30 pm (or sooner), sundowners (G&Tâ€™s, wine, pop, snacks, etc) out in the concession around 6 pm, a spotlight drive back to camp for 8 or 8:30 pm dinner (meat, vegetable dishes, salad, dessert, wine, hard liquor, beer, etc). Timing would vary depending on animal sightings, for example if you are witnessing some interesting animal activity you would stay with the action and have your tea or meal later. Dinner was sometimes in the boma, sometimes overlooking the dry marsh. We had good animal & bird sightings and Jameson worked especially hard (some fast, bumpy driving) to get us lioness and cub time and wild dog encounters. Animal sightings included: lionesses and cubs, wild dogs, impala, zebra, hippo, warthog, wildebeest, elephant, kudu, giraffe, red lechwe, waterbuck, baboons, vervet monkeys, crocodile, buffalo, mongoose, sable antelope, steenbok, etc as well, we saw the elusive sitatunga from the helicopter. *Always take your safari gear & water bottles, etc to breakfast and afternoon tea so you will not have to go back to your tent prior to going on your safari drive. Linyanti was unique in their boma evening entertainmentâ€”the staff would come out and sing and dance for about 15 minutes, thoroughly entertaining us. This was not a job requirement, but something they did for the pure joy of it. The staff would often participate even if it was their evening off. This was very very special for us! [We think they should do a casual video of their performance and sell it in the tiny camp store and have the proceeds go to the ABC Foundation for the local communities.] Thank you to all the staff members for these lovely evenings! It was wonderful to have 1 or 2 camp staff dine with us at every meal (Emmah, Jameson, Beâ€¦), a great way to learn more about the Botswana people and culture! Special thanks to charming Lebo who took good care of us. And, thank you to Anthony who had us captivated by his bush stories during breakfast (I especially love the orphan squirrel story!). I am happy to answer any questions!
This was our first stop in Botswana and what an amazing experience! Loved the bush camp, our tent was huge and comfortable with lovely toiletries and exceptional attention to detail. To be welcomed with singing and cool towels or a drink is special, not to mention elephants and a lion in the camp our first night! The guides were excellent and I will never forget sundowners watching elephants at the waterhole as the sun set. Great food and service, thank you Marcelle and Paul! Loved it.
"Excellent stay "
Linyanti did not make the best first impression - the river was unusually dry and the roads were very rough and long, but the camp, its amazing staff and the guided safari experience made up for this and much more. Linyanti is secluded, has many hidden corners and sights and our guide (Mr. B) made sure we discovered some of the best with respect for the animals and nature. If you haven't appreciated elephants much so far you will at Linyanti. The scenes of congregating elephants by the river bed in the evening are magical. The camp made me appreciate some of the challenges Botswana faces in conservation and nation building and I came away impressed and determined to go back. Go Emma and team ! You were the best !
Very nice location & nice camp in the bush, with plenty of elephants even at night next to your tent. Unfortunately there was no water in the river, which was a disappointment. Good service, Emma is everywhere & very helpful. Food is good. A few details to be improved : size of the shower, extremely small resulting in overflow in all the tent & maintenance of the toilet system to avoid water droppings all night. Still overall a very nice stay , with many animals to be seen, especially elephants due to the proximity of the Chobe national park
