With only six luxury tents, Linyanti Bush Camp delivers a very exclusive safari experience in a private reserve bordering Botswana's legendary Chobe National Park. Set on the fringes of the little-visited Linyanti wetlands, the camp is at the heart of a region renowned for its abundant wildlife which includes particularly large populations of elephant and buffalo as well as all the big cats and rare species such as African wild dog.

Guests can enjoy year-round game drives, guided walking safaris, superb bird watching and mokoro (canoe) excursions in season - and given that the lodge lies in a private concession, guides are allowed to take their 4X4s off-road for extra-close sightings and can conduct exciting night drives for a glimpse into Botswana's natural nocturnal world.


  • Set in private reserve close to Chobe National Park
  • Fantastic location overlooking the Linyanti marshes
  • Exclusive and private - only six generously spaced and tastefully furnished tents
  • Helicopter flips to see the herds from the air
  • Excellent game viewing and bird watching


  • Full-day safaris

  • Guided walks

  • Night drives

One of my favourites! Apart from the comfort, space and amazing location, the game drives are just fantastic! We had a picnic overlooking the entire marshland - what a treat!

Standard Tent

Serengeti Tents

There are a select number of Serengeti Tents where the only thing separating you from the wilds of Africa is canvas - a true immersion into the landscape. Each of the Serengeti Tents features an en-suite bathroom, has a private deck, and comes complete with a fan and mosquito nets. Spend your evenings on your deck listening to the sounds of the bush and marvelling at the beauty of this untamed landscape.


Linyanti Bush Camp is designed to elevate the guest's safari experience: the main lodge is a raised, open-sided canvas tent comprising a library, bar and lounge with comfortable sofas and boasts a small plunge pool to cool off in the hot summer months.

The wooden deck, also raised off the ground, leads from the central public area and offers a perfect vantage point to witness the ever-changing view of the Linyanti floodplains with its constant movement of wildlife. There are well-situated hides for bird watching.


Freshly prepared and hearty meals are served in the main dining area or around a camp fire to the accompaniment of game rangers' stories. The menu includes daily baked breads served with generous meat and vegetable dishes, topped off by traditional desserts such as sticky toffee pudding.

Linyanti Bush Camp

Michelle Masone

We had a great time in Botswana. The Linyanti Camp was amazing. The staff, manager and guide were exceptional. The food was delicious, well above our expectations, and the service was exemplary. I really cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed the c amp and how great everyone was there.

The camp is on the river (very nice) but sound carries and I heard the hustle and bustle from the kitchen before I needed to be up. The accommodations were nice with little extras like hot water for tea/coffee at all times. This camp uses mosquito ne tting which was nice, less for the mosquitoes and more for the other bugs. The food was excellent. Linyanti is known for the birds but also has baboons, hippos, elephants and many other game. Our guide was very good and had experience of the 5-star safari camps. The camp is right on the river where animals must go to get water in the dry season. Since we were on the cusp and there were still watering holes probably not as many animals to the water as during the full dry season. We high recommend the river safaris. Seeing the elephants and hippos was fabulous. Tim did some fishing but didn't catch anything (he didn't care - it was a great experience). All the camps offer a night safari. As a whole, our feeling is they are worthless and more a time filler as you can't really see anything and most animals would be spooked by the light.That said, we have heard that's were some people saw their leopards or other cats (but we didn't).

Our next stop was Linyanti Bush Camp. Here too, the highlight for us were the elephants, although we did see the painted dogs twice while here. In comparison to the Sabi Sands area the density of the game from this camp through the rest of our trip was noticeably less. However, at a certain time in the morning the elephants start making their way to the water and we were able to spend long stretches of time just sitting with and being surrounded by elephants which was wonderful. We also very much enjoyed the camp in general. Here too, there is a sense of family and our guide (Wina) was great! He is a delightful person and very knowledgeable and attentive as a guide. The managers, Oliver and Chirstie were also very warm and friendly. The food was very good, the tents quite comfortable and well appointed and we enjoyed several night-time visits from elephants during our stay. We also very much appreciated their commitment to conservation and the local communities.
