Linyanti Bush Camp overview

Linyanti Bush Camp is in a private reserve and offers a wide selection of game viewing options, so no two days here will be the same. The Linyanti marshes are a magnet for wildlife and are the only source of water for many miles so this is a good year-round destination, though the dry season (May to October) is especially good. You will have chances to view elephants (with large herds in the dry season), sable, roan, sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, zebra, giraffe, hippo and predators including lion, leopard and wild dog. Bird life is abundant.

This small camp has just six tents accommodation a maximum of twelve guests at a time giving it an exclusive feel. Accommodation is in very roomy, Meru-style tents with canvas walls and ceiling, comfortably furnished and decorated in warm, earthy tones. There’s a sitting area with a sofa and footstool, a writing desk and ample storage including a wardrobe and chest of drawers. Each tent has its own bathroom with a fixed hot water shower and a flush toilet.

The main area is on a raised deck and set beneath a canvas roof, with open sides for making the most of the views. Inside there are plenty of sofas and easy chairs arranged around coffee tables, the ideal place to unwind in the middle of the day, sheltered from the heat, as you chat to other travellers and enjoy a drink from the bar. You can help yourself to reference books, to brush up your natural history knowledge. There’s a choice of dining locations, with the option of eating in the main area, with guests and guides seated around the long dining table, or outdoors in the boma with lamps providing light after dark. The campfire is the focal point for sundowners and, again, after dinner, for a nightcap.
