Wildlife & Animals – Linyanti
This private reserve is part of a very big ecosystem, and most large safari animals are resident or migrate through. The park lies on an elephant migration route, and in the Dry season, elephant numbers are phenomenal. Lion, cheetah, spotted hyena and the endangered wild dog all occur in good numbers. The water-loving red lechwe is abundant, and less common antelope species include the elusive roan and sable antelope.
During the wet months, from November to April, the area is home to the calving and migration of zebra. Night drives are part of the daily program in Linyanti, and some of the species that might be spotted after dark are the springhare, which favors the Kalahari sands, lesser bushbaby, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet, and maybe even the elusive pangolin.
Best Time for Wildlife Viewing
Linyanti has seasonal wildlife viewing. The dry months, from May to October, are the best time to see large concentrations of animals and the Wet season months, from November to April, are special for the zebra migration.
