At the core of this wildlife haven is Linyanti Ebony, this intimate camp is made up of just four tents with spectacular vistas of the surrounding wilderness. A unique place where you can embrace the “digital detox” and slip into the rhythm of an authentic and game-filled safari experience. The concession is known for its large populations of elephant and buffalo, which along with zebra, giraffe, sable, and the rare sitatunga antelope can be seen wandering along the waterways in front of the lodge.
Hippo and crocodile can often be found in the surrounding marshes and at night, aardvark, leopard and civet come out of hiding. The area is also known for its prolific bird life which also includes a variety of raptors and owls. The game viewing here takes place in a variety of forms; 4×4 safari vehicles, walking safaris and guided mokoro excursions; allowing guests to explore as much of the area as possible. The camp is built on a raised deck, allowing for wonderful views over the marshes and lagoons. There is a main living and dining area and guests can dine outside, around the campfire if they wish.
