Walking safaris are a big focus at Linyanti Expeditions. Guided walking safaris are led by our qualified and passionate guides who share their knowledge and love of the bush.
Encounter wildlife at a different perspective with a Mokoro safari. Unlike the traditional Mokoros which are made from indigenous trees, to conserve the environment we model our Mokoros out of fiberglass. Mokoro Safaris are available when water levels permit.
Our private concessions allow for game drives after the sun has set. Experience the bush when elusive nocturnal wildlife awakens to hunt, forage and live their lives under the cover of darkness.
The true art of safari is waking up with the crisp dawn air to the sound of birds rejoicing. Enjoying a warm cup of coffee, anticipating what the day has to offer. It’s heading out into the wild, open plains on foot in search of new ground and thrilling interactions. In the fast-paced, man-made world we live in, there is a pull towards authentic and honest travel and experiences. We’re going back to our original ‘Bush Camps’ roots and introducing our newest expedition-style camp to Botswana, with Linyanti Expeditions. Our quest is to explore the wildest and most remote parts of Africa, with walking as the focus at Linyanti Expeditions, it’s the perfect way to learn about intricacies of the ecosystem. From amplifying the workings of the smallest creatures, to coming face-to-face with mighty beasts, your senses will be heightened.
Mokoro and Game Drives are also on offer to experience different perspectives of the beautiful land. With only 6 tents, the camp has an intimate atmosphere, ensuring a personalized service for each guest. The main area has two canvas-covered hubs; a dining area with an exposed kitchen and an open lounge. Each room has en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and al fresco bucket showers. The wow factor in the rooms is the ‘star suite’. Each tent has a gazebo extension, where beds can be moved at night to give the experience of sleeping beneath a blanket of glimmering stars, immersing yourself in the wonders of the wilderness while still staying in the security of a mesh-enclosed area.
Each tent is equipped with a mesh-enclosed extension that’s perfect if you enjoy counting stars as you fall asleep. However, the bird chorus at dawn will wake you which might not suit everyone.
The six tents set on platforms are simply but beautifully appointed. They’re undeniably classic in design, with smart updates such as netted gazebo extensions for sleeping beneath the stars. Inside each, the main room has a double bed with luscious bedding. There’s a small dressing area with cupboards to keep you organised. The attached bathroom has a basin, flush toilet and a bucket shower that can be filled with hot water on request.
6 canvas tents each with an ensuite bathroom at the rear of the tent. Each bathroom comes with its own toilet as well as a bucket shower, taking guests back to that bygone era of the original expedition camps.
The camp pivots around two long tents, where eating, relaxing and socialising are warm and hearty occasions. Stretched canvas, anchored by ropes, covers the open-sided lounge, with its sofas lined with colourful pillows, bookshelves and interesting bush artefacts. The dining room’s long wooden table is surrounded by a modern take on camp chairs, and lit by unusual low-hanging light fittings. Outside, the campfire is surrounded by canvas chairs from which to gaze across the landscape to the horizon.
At night, guests are welcomed to the main tented area for a dining extravaganza with an open fire. If guests are looking for a bit of down time, they can relax and enjoy exquisite views overlooking the vast Linyanti wetlands. The main area has two canvas-covered hubs; a dining area with an exposed kitchen and an open lounge. As with most of our camps, the campfire is at the centre, drawing guests to enjoy the authentic experience of the African bush outside.
Action in these parts can be dramatic, especially with such a healthy population of wild dogs, whose frenzied yet organised hunting style makes for riveting game viewing. Watch elephants bathe and play in the river, and cross deeper channels with their trunks held aloft. Day or night game drives and mokoro cruises are magnificent, but we recommend guided walking safaris for some thrilling bush sightings. Game is good year-round; best elephant and zebra sightings occur in the dry season (May–October).
