Linyanti Wetlands, Botswana Plan a trip

Head north of Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta and you’ll discover a region that is perhaps even more beautiful, diverse and rich in wildlife – the magnificent Linyanti Wetlands.

The wetlands forms a bridge between the dense, lush woodlands of the Chobe National Park and the sweeping floodplains of the Okavango Delta. This gives Linyanti a flavour of both, and the wide diversity of available habitats attracts great numbers of incredible animals and birds.

There are many ways to explore this exceptional fly-in safari destination, starting from setting up base at a luxurious yet authentic camp. There are plenty of fabulous safari-under-canvas options to choose from here in the Linyanti Wetlands, where native creatures wander right past the camp and you can hear the soundtrack of the forest at night.

To admire the huge herds of elephants this region is known for, hop into a traditional mokoro canoe and take a cruise down the majestic Linyanti River. And as the sun sets in the evening, watch them disappear from the yellow plains into the forest in an impressive cloud of dust.

Take a game drive during the day or night to see leopards, wild dogs and cheetahs track their prey, or set out on a walking tour with an experienced bushman guide to hear baboons barking in the forest. You’ll also glimpse water birds, huge herds of zebra, antelope, wildebeest and giraffe.

The choice is yours, but it’s guaranteed that you’ll never have a dull moment in the thrilling, pristine wilderness of the Linyanti Wetlands.
