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.

Room tip: This is not a hotel but luxury tents.

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

We visited Linyanti Bush Camp in September 2019 as a group of four and it was a fantastic experience. Lebo was a superb hostess who was extremely kind to my friend who found the safari experience quite difficult. The staff were fun and attentive and we loved listening to their stories. The barbecue around the campfire and the singing by the staff were highlights . Esse’s knowledge was extraordinary and he was extremely patient with our endless questions. We saw all the animals on our wish list and tracked a leopard after a kill. Although this camp was less luxurious than our previous camp ( a ceiling fan in the room would have been appreciated as the days were very hot), it was still very comfortable. This was by far our best experience in Africa. Botswana is an incredible country.
