The Linyanti Bush Camp offers the perfect setting for an authentic and wild safari experience. As the only source of water in the dry months, the Linyanti marshes are one of the most sought after destinations in Northern Botswana, boasting a great diversity of game and a peaceful atmosphere. The area offers spectacular birding all year round and is best known for its large herds of elephants that move down to the Linyanti River at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive. Lion, sable, roan, leopard, and wild dog are also frequent visitors to Linyanti as is the elusive sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile. Bordering the western boundary of Chobe in the Chobe Enclave, the Linyanti Bush Camp is an intimate 12-bedded tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve. Activities from the camp include game drives, walking safaris, game viewing from hides, spot-lighting, bird watching, boating and fishing safaris as well as guided mokoro safaris, when water levels permit. Accommodation at the Linyanti Bush Camp is far from primitive with spacious tents, comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets, fixed showers and hot water.

For an experience of botswana bush at its best this camp ticks all our boxes. Being able to switch off from day to day stuff and just relax... excellent accommodation, exceptional meals, caring and attentive lodge staff, game drives with Joe all together made us feel so welcome and ready to return again as soon as possible. This is not a fenced area so animal sitings are varied, elephants, Buffalo, hippo daily, a special night of lions roaring in the distance. Remember safaris are not for the faint hearted, be prepared to experience the Botswana heat but a sundowner overlooking the Linyanti plain is priceless!

We spent two nights at the Linyanti Bushcamp. It was meant to be three but we needed to leave at very short notice because of the Corona virus outbreak. I am so glad we had the opportunity to spend time in this wonderful place. We loved every minute. The location and facilities were excellent and the staff were all extremely courteous and friendly. Our guide was 007 James and Cassie was our housekeeper. The food was delicious, and we saw lots of animals close up thanks to James's tracking and driving skills.I really hope we might be able to go back one day to finish our visit

I visited Linyanti Ebony 12-15 March 2020. This was my second stop on the Essence of Botswana and Zambia Safari. I arrived at the camp via helicopter! Thanks Sam! I thought it would be hard to top the first stop but LE was up to the challenge. Esse and Lebo are outstanding! I couldn't ask for a better guide and hostess! Thanks for making my first safari memorable and for helping me to change the narrative on Africa.

Want a nice compromise between roughing it in a tent and a too-luxe experience that would spoil the kids? Want to go “off the grid”? This is the perfect alternative! Does not feel like Kruger “Disneyland” or a curated park - so the guides have to work extra hard to track down the animals. The effort to engage with you over meals is part of the Africa Bushcamps signature - not part of our thorntree experience The worst wifi out of all 3 camps (it doesn’t work well when it rains or when it’s cloudy and its only available at the gift shop 😮) Early March is probably the perfect time for birds although very green and lush - which makes it difficult to track down animals. Hornbills and “roadrunners” greet you at every turn. Glowbugs light yo the nights. Passing showers even in mid March but they blew over very quickly. Amazing camp for elephants which you can find in the evenings. Animals we saw:(many more but can’t recall all now) Giraffes Lions Leopard Ground Hornbills Baboons (esse calls them badboons) Zebra Elephants (my absolute fav and the encounters with them are the highlight of my trip) Leopard Turtle Dung Beetles Hippos Crocodile Request: Please make the accommodation more luxe or provide a luxe option to do this location we more justice 🙏 Pros: The people! Lebo and Esse are both amazing - such hospitality! Esse is hands down the best guide I have encountered on multiple trips to africa that include &beyond and even Singita camps. Esse knowledge and determination to somehow track down all the elusive animals really made the kids first safari trip “perfect” Chef Yum Yum- we loved your food! In the green season - we somehow managed to see every single animal linyanti had to offer Cons: Many insects everywhere! Even in our beds! Water smells odd and shower drainage poor - it did feel completely at odds with prior accommodation thorntree also part of africa bushcamps Tip: Ask for Esse as your guide - you absolutely won’t regret it

Good Day, Thank you for your extensive review on Linyanti Ebony. Being remote, our camps do have limited Wi-Fi and our aim is to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature. We do understand your highlighted points and will take that into consideration. We do sincerely apologize for your experience regarding drainage and pesky bugs. This will be sent through to our team and will be corrected as soon as possible. I will be sure to pass on your positive feedback to Esse and Chef Yum Yum. We do hope to welcome you back soon, till then keep well With Regards, The African Bush Camps Team
