Destination Details

Linyati, Botswana

 

In the far northern part of Botswana, between the Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta, lie the Linyanti and Selinda Wildlife Reserves. Each of these is a large protected area or 'concession,' a private game reserve with a few small safari camps. The reserves are generally unfenced, so animals move freely, according to season, habit, and available resources.

The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is a large (1,250km2) district immediately west of the Chobe National Park. The northern boundary of the concession is the Linyanti River, with its lagoons and marshes. Cutting through the middle is the Savuti Channel, a usually-dry riverbed, which today is an open, grassy area, home to a variety of wildlife. The varied vegetation of the reserve also provides a welcoming environment for game and birds.

The Selinda concession, a 1,350km2 expanse west of Linyanti and north of the Moremi Game Reserve, includes a large portion of the Magwegqana Spillway, a typically-dry waterway that links the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti swamps. The mouth of the Spillway is mostly made up of open floodplains, and offers a hospitable setting for wildlife.

Safari camps in the concessions are remote and accessible only by air. You will not be game viewing with a crowd of people and vehicles. Generally, you will be able to follow the game off-road, take night drives and enjoy game walks. In addition, some camps also offer water-based game activities.

Safari camps operate to a high standard, with comfortable beds, lighting, private facilities, excellent guides and good food. Your choice of camp will depend on the activities you seek, the season, the size and style of camp you choose and the degree of luxury you prefer. Our staff will be pleased to discuss your requirements.
