Linyanti Bush Camp
A predator-rich wilderness with a touch of tented luxury
Linyanti Bush Camp
Set on the banks of the Linyanti Marsh in a private concession, Linyanti Bush Camp's Meru-style tents have a real African safari atmosphere. Explore the wilderness on day and night game drives, get intimate with its small creatures and vegetation on a walking safari, and float along the waterways on boating and mokoro excursions. Observe the wildlife from a selection of hides or hop aboard a helicopter rides for panoramic views of the swamps, woodlands and mixed savanna. Lion, leopard, African wild dog and hyaena top the bill of predator attractions, and there are great numbers of elephant, hippo, buffalo and crocs. Linyanti is also an Important Bird Area.
At the lodge
The elevated central area, with its lounge, bar, dining and communal meeting areas, has comfortable furniture that just beckons you to settle down with a book from the well-stocked bookshelves, or simply to take in the wide view of the surrounding marshes and Linyanti River. The atmosphere is old-style colonial, with an eclectic collection of artefacts from across Africa decorating the room. After dinner, cross the deck and head downstairs to enjoy chats and drinks around the crackling camp fire.
There are six very large and comfortable Meru-style tents, each sensitively sited so as not to obstruct the views from the others. Reed mats cover the floors, hardwood furniture has been polished to a gleam, large sleigh-style beds make sure you'll sleep well, and the en-suite bathroom offers a shower and hot running water. Outside, you can watch the passing parade from your private seating area.
At Linyanti Bush Camp, day and night game drives take priority, showcasing an impressive diversity of wildlife, including the many predators of the region.
