THE PERFECT FAMILY SAFARI IN THE CHOBE ENCLAVE

Even amongst the most discerning of travellers, the Linyanti Channel is fast becoming Botswana’s most sought-after wildlife haven. Nestled between the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rich yet diverse ecosystem that is fed by a permanent river flow.

At the core of this wildlife haven is Linyanti Ebony, this intimate camp is made up of just four tents with spectacular vistas of the surrounding wilderness. A unique place where you can embrace the “digital detox” and slip into the rhythm of an authentic and game-filled safari experience.

The camp itself offers three twin-tents that sleep two and one more spacious unit excellent for families. The two-bedroom family tent has a self-contained lounge area looking out over the wetlands and an en suite bathroom with a shower and roll-top bath. For large groups or families travelling together, Linyanti Ebony can be booked exclusively with a minimum of 8 people and is open all year round.

Bask in peaceful silence as you drift through the crystal-clear waterways in a mokoro (from ages 16 years+ at the guides discretion) and watch the birds and aquatic life. Enjoy this unique rivers-cape up close, explore the bush on foot or go on an enthralling day or night game drive. For something a little extraordinary, set out to the skies on a helicopter safari and take in the awe-inspiring waterways below.

GAME DRIVES

With years of experience our African Bush Camps guides are known for being some of the best in the business.

WALKING SAFARIS

Since your safety is our first priority, walking safaris are usually conducted when the bush is not too thick.

ON WATER

Mokoro safari – This is a dugout canoe poled by an experienced poler in the shallower waters of the Okavango. It is a great way to see the waterways and is tranquil and quiet. These excursions take place in the mornings or longer day trips can be arranged. Explore the islands around camp and come back rested and rejuvenated.

GUIDED WALKS

Walking safaris are also conducted generally in the morning with armed guides. The walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking is weather dependent, or dependent on the condition of the terrain.

DRIVING

Game drives – Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp. They usually last about three hours each and are conducted along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering one a chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.

Thank you Little Machaba Camp for such beautiful pictures and your story.

ZAMBIA, THE CLASSIC SAFARI

Zambia over the last couple of years has become recognised as a significant safari destination – this is a result of an abundance of wildlife combined with top of the range safari guides and offering a wide variety of safari options and accommodation competing with its neighbours but not losing the reputation of a remote and traditional safari experience.

Named after the mighty Zambezi River that flows through the western and southern areas of Zambia, this adventurous country is home to a World Heritage Site, the renowned Victoria Falls, 17 waterfalls, a rich heritage, 4 great lakes (1 man-made) and most importantly 19 National Parks covering over 60 000sq km – all in all 32% of Zambia has been set aside for wildlife.  Zambia is a perfect destination for walking safaris, in particular North Luangwa.  The Zambezi River is fed by its Kafue and Luangwa tributaries, and forms the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe before flowing through Mozambique and ending off into the Indian Ocean.   The biggest tourist attractions to Zambia is of course the town of Livingstone and the 4 major parks, that being the South Luangwa National Park, North Luangwa National Park, the Lower Zambezi National Park and Kafue National Park.
The capital of Zambia is Lusaka and is the main hub for all travel.  More and more International Airlines have now started flying directly into Lusaka which is a positive step for increasing tourism to Zambia.  Alternatively many travellers will fly into South Africa and connect through Livingstone Airport or through to Lusaka.

Check out this awesome package we have running for next year. Join a private guided tour with a photographic guide and expert and enjoy the gems of Zambia.  Contact us for a quote : janine@personalcollectionbyta.com
