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.
"Good animal sightings. Landing strip one hour away from the camp."
We visited in November 2016. Good variety of animal sightings. The light aircraft flight from Maun to the Linyanti Bush Camp landing strip was one hour long and then we had another hour drive from the landing strip to get to the camp! After a long flight to South Africa, then to Maun, Botswana and having to travel two hours more to get to the camp, and then the same process for the return to South Africa, we found it very cumbersome and long. Keep in mind that the cost for the light aircraft flight is part of the total charge. Our guide was very good and resourceful. Lots of elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, lions and wild dogs. However, no mokoro excursions, it was very dry. Food was not the best and the camp management, unfortunately left a lot to be desired. During the dry season months in Botswana, we recommend that it is preferable to visit camps in the Okavango Delta.
"Highlight of our trip to Botswana"
I loved this place for lots of reasons. Sorry it has taken me a while to post something. The staff in particular Butler and Onti were the nicest people you could ask to meet. Butler knew where to go look for animals, was extremely knowledgable and a great sense of humour! Onti was lovely to talk to and again a great sense of humour - they were great together and we spent many an hour sat round after eating laughing and having a great time! Onti's story about the lizard should go down in history! on the flip side the droughts and lack of water made this trip probably the saddest one I have seen, the lack of water affected the animals so badly and I did get very upset on several occasions. This is Africa though and not a Disney theme park so you saw the proper Africa and as upsetting as it was as I say earlier I loved this place for what it was. I would definitely go back. Oh and the doorless helicopter ride was just amazing too! goes without saying that the accommodation and food were wonderful. Would love to return one day. Miss you x
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.
