Linyanti Bush Camp

Chobe & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Linyanti Bush Camp overview

Linyanti Bush Camp is an intimate tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve, which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in the Chobe Enclave. The camp offers an exclusive safari experience away from the main tourist routes of Chobe.

Linyanti Bush Camp offers simple African elegance, providing modern comforts whilst retaining an authentic wilderness atmosphere. The camp has six tastefully furnished rooms under canvas with en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge area is raised on wooden decking with a dining area, small library, bar and lounge, overlooking the Linyanti floodplains and marsh.

Activities from the camp consist of day and night game drives and walking safaris. There are hides for close-up views of animals and birds. The Linyanti area is best known for its large populations of elephant and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers especially during the dry season. In addition lion, sable, roan, leopard, wild dog, and a number of the plains game may be seen and the surrounding swamps and marshes are home to lechwe, hippo, crocodile and sitatunga. Birding is excellent here all year round.


Open: All year round 

Location: Chobe enclave, to the west of Chobe National Park, north Botswana. The nearest airstrip is Saile, a 40 minute drive from the camp.

Ruth Samways

"Fell in love with this camp."

Deborah Daplyn
"2nd best in accommodation. A little more light in the rooms would help, shaving by torchlight is a challenge! Food not quite as good as else where but still very good. Esse was great as he just had us to look after and that must be very difficult. Only place that did a proper night drive"
Ute Brimson
"Our favourite - very remote, very intimate and so close to wildlife. Pride of lions outside tent, elephants and hippos in spitting distance in marshes in front of lodge. Excellent guiding (Isaac)."
Ian Furbank
"Absolutely superb. Good wildlife, great staff, wonderful site, lovely food."
Julie Spence
"The tented accommodation was best we have ever stayed in. Plenty of room with a shower/toilet recess and plenty of hot water. The location is very relaxing and one does get the feeling of being very remote and away from the hustle and bustle of life."
