Overview

Linyanti Ebony is a small, exclusive tented camp within the private Chobe Enclave concession in the Linyanti region of northern Botswana. This area attracts a dense concentration of wildlife, particularly during the May/October dry season, with excellent opportunities for viewing elephant, lion, buffalo, zebra and giraffe, plus occasional sightings of the elusive leopard and wild dog.

An hour’s drive from Saile Airstrip, the camp overlooks the Linyanti River and surrounding marshland, and its waterfront position is ideal for birdwatching and encountering the occasional visiting elephant or hippo. The camp’s location in the private concession means vehicle congestion is considerably reduced compared to nearby Chobe National Park.

Constructed on raised decking overlooking the marsh, the camp’s main area is comfortably furnished in a traditional style. Guest areas include a dining room, lounge, and bar, and communal style meals take place either indoors or around the campfire. There is also a small plunge pool.

Activities include day and night game drives, guided walking safaris, and birdwatching. Boating, fishing (catch and release), and traditional mokoro canoe excursions are offered, subject to seasonal water levels. Between April and November guests can take to the skies in breathtaking helicopter flights.

The camp accommodates 10 people in three canvas Meru-style tents, each sleeping two, with one family unit which sleeps four. The spacious tents are well-appointed with twin beds, a wardrobe, writing desk, and sofa, although electrical charging points are only available in the camp’s main areas. All tents have mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms with flush toilets, showers and basins with hot and cold running water. Outside is a private veranda with seating and lovely views of the wetlands.

Children aged seven and over are welcome at Linyanti Ebony, with discounts for under 12s. The tented family unit has a double bed and two singles in adjoining rooms, and the ensuite bathroom contains a bathtub and shower. This particularly spacious tent can also be hired as a honeymoon suite on request. Linyanti Ebony is available for exclusive group hire, subject to a minimum of eight guests. Note there is a minimum age restriction of 16 years for walking safaris, with nature walks around camp offered as an alternative. The camp is unfenced, and while it’s unlikely for animals to approach humans or tents, adult supervision is essential at all times.

Linyanti Ebony offers a traditional bush camp experience in a waterside setting, and is an excellent choice for travellers wishing to combine comfort and tranquillity with a wide range of activities.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
