Linyanti Ebony Camp, along with its neighbour, Linyanti Bush Camp, have similar facilities. We like them both, not only due to the great private game-viewing they offer – especially in the dry season, but also as an extremely good alternative to the better-known and rather expensive options nearby.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Linyanti Ebony Camp nestles in a grove of trees on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in an area known as the Chobe Enclave. It is bordered in the North by the Chobe River and elsewhere by Chobe National Park. This large private reserve is one of the best big game viewing areas in Botswana. Not only is it home to large herds of elephant and buffalo, but plains game such as antelope, giraffe and zebra are also prolific, attracting predators such as lion, leopard and even wild dog.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The camp is small and intimate with only four guest tents – including three twins and one family unit with additional bedroom for children. The spacious tents feature decking with views across the Linyanti floodplain, and are comfortably furnished, have a flush toilet, and shower with hot running water. The main tent includes a pleasant open plan sitting and dining area, bar and library. While the decking leads down to a splash pool and fire pit where guests gather to share tales of their safari.
Game viewing is superb here, with a large choice of options – day and night game drives, walking safaris, boating safaris and mokoro trips.
