The name Linyanti has instantly become famous amongst conservationists due to the recent uproar of poaching of elephants in the area.
It has the highest concentration of elephant herds in the Chobe National Park, making it a new hit with tourists who want to experience Africa’s largest mammal. In this majestic Chobe National Park lies one of the luxurious safari camps not only in Botswana but in Africa, Camp Linyanti.
Boosting five individual Meru-style tents that sleep two people each, Camp Linyanti which is located in the north-western corner of the park, on the river border between Botswana and Namibia, offers its guests a private location and its own wilderness which is situated away from the seasonal crowds of the magnificent Chobe River.
To access the reaching floodplains of the Linyanti, one is flown to the local airstrip which is two hour drive from Camp Linyanti.
The main area of Camp Linyanti is all about the views with wide, wooden decks built overlooking the lagoons and waterways – all the way to the Caprivi Strip.
As one steps inside the camp is ‘wowed’ by the African set up of the tents which are shaped in round signifying the African concept of community lifestyle.
The tents, which are en suite, are also air-conditioned. Camp Linyanti, aside from the privacy and comfort of guests' individual rooms and viewing decks, offers a bar, lounge, and dining area in prime positioning for unending views all the way to Namibia.
The main lodge has extensive wooden decks that overlook the bulging Linyanti River and the floodplains beyond it. Meals can be served on the deck for a dining experience with the birds and animals moving about easily.
