Linyanti Concession

- Overview Linyanti Safaris

About Linyanti Concession

The four lodges in this private concession are run by the well-established Wilderness Safaris, which means exclusivity, impeccable service and superb guiding. The reserve borders the western boundary of Chobe NP and a big part of the famous Savute Channel is located within the reserve. There are no borders between the reserve and Chobe, and animals migrate freely across. The Linyanti swamp system, created by a big bend in the Linyanti River, attracts large herds of animals, especially elephant.

The Linyanti River and the Savute Channel attract big herds of animals in the Dry season. Elephant are particularly prolific, but so are other herbivores, such as red lechwe, Burchell's zebra, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and buffalo. Lion, wild dog and cheetah are regularly seen. Night drives give an opportunity to spot bushbaby, genet and other nocturnal species.
