Even amongst the most discerning of travellers, the Linyanti Channel is fast becoming Botswana’s most sought-after wildlife haven. Nestled between the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rich yet diverse ecosystem that is fed by a permanent river flow. Built on raised decking overlooking the Linyanti Marsh, Linyanti Ebony is an intimate tented camp granting panoramic views of its exquisite natural setting. The camp’s mindful design offers an authentic, eco-conscious base from which to explore this significant wilderness. The main area encompasses an expansive lounge and dining area, sparkling plunge pool, cosy fire circle and boma; the perfect place to strengthen family ties on your Chobe safari. The spacious two-bedroom family tent has a self-contained lounge area and private deck looking out over the wetlands plus, a spacious en-suite bathroom that features a shower and roll-top bath. Linyanti Ebony is home to some fantastic wildlife including a healthy population of predators such as lion, wild dog and several more elusive species delighting our guests year-round.

We stayed at 3 African Bush Camps during our safari and were blown away by each one. Our hostess was Helga, she was great to chat with and always made sure everyone had a comfortable stay. We still talk about how we wish that Chef Yum Yum could cook for us at home. This camp had our favorite food. From the grilled meats to the sides to the desserts it was just delicious. Our guide Esse was great too! He was great to talk to and knew a lot about the area and the animals we encountered. He always knew when an elephant was just showing off and how to respond with the vehicle to keep everyone safe when they decided to intimidate us. The only downside is that the air strip was flooded last year, so it’s about a 1.5 hour drive to the next air strip, but the guides keep it fun like a safari drive.

I was the leader of a group of 19 family and friend who gathered in Botswana to celebrate a milestone birthday two years late due to Covid. Our first three night were at another camp in the Okavango Delta and this camp was great. We then flew to Linyanti Bush Camp for 3 more nights and were simply blown away. We were greeted at the jeeps with a personalize metal water bottle which was a lovely eco touch and when we arrived at the camp we were serenaded by the staff with a welcome song. The level of service and luxury were evident from the start. In our first group meeting the chef asked each guest about any food allergies which was very professional. The chef was a real master and I have to stay that the food was just incredible at every meal. Everyone was wowed. We had to get 19 people on helicopter rides during our stay and the manager KB when above and beyond to make sure that each party of 19 had the thrill of the 30 minutes helicopter safari. The jeep guides Dutch, Essay and Rams were all excellent and everyone enjoyed getting to know each of them. Our day trip to Savuti was amazing. We were stunned when we arrived for lunch where we all expected a box lunch to find the lodge had sent a separate truck with table and chairs and a full buffet. It was just unbelievable. We saw more elephants than we though possible and so many amazing beasts so close up that it seems unreal. The sundowner drinks were also just beautiful as the sunsets last an hour and each night was more stunning that the last. The rooms were all lovely and lux with large balconies. The rooms were all very well thought out and designed. Overall African Bush Camps is a smooth operator and you are are going to be very very happy if you visit Linyanti Bush Camp during your stay in Botswana. Thank you again for making our visit unforgettably one of the best experiences of our lives...

Hi, we stayed at African Bush Camp Linyanti Ebony for 2 nights with our 3 children (ages 8, 11, 12) The Lodge was beautiful und right by the water!!! The interior was colonial style, with a fire place by the river, a little pool and terrace. It is a small but very beautiful camp and the staff is amazing. Also the kitchen by Chef Valentine is really exquisite. In the evening we sat by the fire and everyone tells the stories from what they saw at the game drives. It is authentic, wild and beautiful. At night you can hear the hyaenas and the hippos and see the most wonderful stars. Our guide was called Jerry and he was amazing, great knowledge about nature and animals, patient with the kids, engaged the kids in different activities, found the most beautiful sundowner spots. We also did the helicopter flight - with no doors!!! It was such a fun experience, a bit scary in the beginning, but unforgettable. We would always come back!!!

We were a group of six and stayed 3 nights in Linyanti Bush Camp. The stay was very special, as we had rain and thunderstorms on every day and the bushes were very thick. However our guide Joe did everything to show us interesting things and the animals of course. All of the staff in the camp are very attentive and nice. That is why we enjoyed every moment.

Booked my long awaiting trip to ABC once the Covid restrictions were lifted. Originally going to Zambia and Zimbabwe as well, but the PCR testing was becoming a problem......answer - stay in Botswana. Thankfully ABC have other camps in Botswana so I changed to Migration Expeditions and Linyanti Bush Camp.' Both camps lived up to the high standard of all the other ABC camps I have been to. My arrival at Linyanti was memorable due to my involuntary night drive - arriving in camp at 10.00pm at night......everyone was waiting for me and even held dinner for me. My "tent" was spacious and comfortable, and the views over the marshes in the morning were amazing. The staff were so accommodating - nothing was too much trouble, and the game drives/viewing were amazing (despite it being the wet season). Would definitely recommend this camp......and all the ABC camps in fact. These people know how to make a safari into a memorable experience......I will return!!!

Immediately the Covid restrictions were lifted in France we made our way to beautiful Botswana and were given the warmest welcome we could imagine. Our excellent guide Max and the charming Linyanti manager K.B. went out of their way to make sure we had the most magnificent time. We had already warned them that we were enthusiastic birders and photographers which was exactly what they organised for us. It seemed as if we had Botswana all to ourselves, we certainly did not see another tourist in our three days but we were thoroughly spoilt with excellent birding including seeing my favourite tiny jewel like Malachite Kingfisher which Max found for us. KB and his team treated us to delicious meals and looked after us with the greatest care including in the middle of one night when we were woken by an ear splitting alarm just outside our luxury tent. To our utter humiliation it turned out to be nothing more scary than an amorous giant cricket calling its mate. We were treated to good food, a lovely vista for miles across the reed beds from our comfy tent and such kindness from all the staff. Just what we needed after two years of the Covid pandemic. Thank you so much for a blissful time.

As our first ever safari, we had no idea what the expect but our three night stay with Linyanti went beyond what we could have ever imagined! Comfortable accommodations, delicious food, and unbelievable wildlife. The staff were so welcoming and our guide Ken was amazing. I cannot recommend more and I hope one day we will be able to return to this special place.

Wir haben 3 Nächte in diesem Camp verbracht und würden es wieder besuchen. Ein schöner Empfang des Staffs und speziell von Eveline die uns zugeteilt war wenn wir Fragen hatten für die gesamte Dauer des Aufenthalts. Die Zelte sind schön eingerichtet und haben einen Blick auf den Fluss . Alle haben sich sehr bemüht . Das Essen sehr gut. Ein Helikopterflug war inklusive.

Pros: Joe was our guide... and all guests spend the most time with their guide... with morning and afternoon game drives, mokoro, motor boat, and walking safari... you'll end up spending bw 6-10 hours/day with your designated guide. Joe was excellent... he was knowledgeable, amiable, flexible, professional, and accommodating. My fiancee and I got to know him on a personal level... hard, sincere worker, dedicated husband, loving father... we were thoroughly impressed by him. And, thanks to Joe we saw tons of wild animals up close and personal. Thanks Joe! This was the third of three camps we stayed at and it was awesome. That said, these are some possible areas for improvement (and mind you, these apply to all three camps we stayed at, so certainly no knock on Linyanti Bushcamp): 1. Bugs. Lots of bugs in our room... mostly teeny tiny flying things, but they were still slightly irritating, and they somehow did squeeze through the netting around the beds. Maybe netting around the bed and around the tent with even smaller pores? Maybe a reminder to the cleaning staff to enter and exit quickly so flying insects don't get in? 2. Wifi was only available at the souvenir shop porch/hut, not in the tent cabins and not even in the main dining area. I do understand the purpose and benefit of guests "unplugging from the matrix," but it's 2021 and some guests do need reliable internet connectivity... if the camps can't offer that then they may lose some guests who might o/w come. And I would recommend a wifi range booster so that the wifi extends to the tent cabins... cheap yet effective. Yes I would have used that for limited and important work, but I also would have liked to look up things that I was curious about during my trip... history of the area/country, facts about the animals, weather, etc.  Tip regarding your room:  Closer to the main area is generally better so you don't have so far with an escort at night. Overall Linyanti Bushcamp was superb and we'd highly recommend it!
