"Linyanti Ebony Review"
The camp itself is lovely: small, very well appointed, and nicely situated on what would have been a river and marsh had it not been so dry. The camp is managed by Evelyn who tended to every detail in a timely, accurate and gracious manner. She had originally trained as a chef but was moved to the “front office” when management saw how good she was with operations, and what a good choice that was.
Our guide, Dutch, was fantastic. He’s a young man who has an interesting combination of traits: playfulness with a great sense of humor along with an expansive knowledge of flora and fauna, including birds, and a deep sense of responsibility for his clients. We had many wonderful sightings including the elusive sable antelope and lots of great interactions with elephants." See all these reviews: 15n in Botswana
"Linyanti Ebony review"
I really appreciated how personable the staff were. They used our names while we were there, which made us feel very welcome.
On our trip from the airstrip to the lodge we saw hippos, a leopard, zebra, giraffe, water buck, baboons, and elephants. It was a magical experience. Action's excitement and passion for the animals was infectious and made the trip wonderful." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Private tents excellent Elephant viewing"
Guide was very good and we saw plenty of game.
Helicopter ride was an added bonus and we really enjoyed it.
The ride from the airstrip is long and a bit rough after the long journey we has from South America." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 1n in Zambia
I was impressed with training that the staff imparted to us. Such bravery to stand in front of complete strangers and attend us with a shy and graceful attitude. We needed to adapt to the unusual hours and the rhythm of the food service helped immensely.
Safety information was imparted to us in a manner that encouraged us to obey at every moment especially at night and in the vehicle.
The setting is delightful and an entire array of wild animals during our stay proved to us that we were really in Africa. It was hard to say good-bye and set off to the next camp. We wish all the staff the best for may seasons to come." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 1n in Zambia
