Reviews of Linyanti Bush Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
Staff very friendly and a genuine welcome (cold wet face towels very nice to arrive to after each game drive!), food very good, guides very knowledgable. Tents and beds very comfy, lovely duvets for when it got chilly at night.
Amazing setting and wonderful bird sightings. Enjoyed seeing many species (lots of elephants- 60+, zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, buffalo 300+, african wildcat, baboon, warthog) including a rare sighting of an aardvark on a night drive. Tracks are very bumpy so worth knowing if you do suffer from a dodgy back.
All in all a wonderful spot, Mopane woodlands reminded me of beech woods -very beautiful.
Small no. of other guests made it a very personal stay.
It would be a good idea to give prospective guests an idea of how far it is from the nearest airstrip ie about 1.5 hours. If I had been travelling there direct from UK that same day it would have been really tiring as it was a bumpy drive. Just travelling that day from J'burg after 2 planes trips already was quite enough!
Amazing lions at Linyanti Bush Camp
The buffalo were incredible. 600 plus crossing the valley with all the dust that they generate this was an amazing spectacle.Read more about the whole safari
Wind, dust and Ash
I found the staff to be extremely friendly and it was a very intimate place, which made you feel wanted. The guides were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and willing to assist (in particular with good photographic opportunities and always finding the best position to take a shot).
as you will see from the the title it was matters outside of the control of the camp. There had been a large bush fire on the marsh 3 weeks early and the ash/dust was whipped into a three day storm - not pleasant but still and experience in it's own right. I would reccommend this camp to others but if i was personally returning it would be in April - June rather thaN August - October.
The proximity to Chobe NP make it a great location for visitis into the park to see something different - we were fortunate enough to find two male lions on an elephant kill they had made a matter of hours earlier.
