Linyanti Private Reserve, Botswana
Set under magnificent knob thorn acacia trees with a splendid view over the Linyanti waterways, this nostalgic safari camp is replete with the atmosphere of a bygone era of African exploration. One of the area's most famous attractions is a chance to watch scores of elephants refresh themselves in the many water channels that lace the region. Linyanti Tented Camp offers guests a remarkably intimate experience of its wild surroundings and is designed to foster a feeling of openness and connection with nature. This authentic bush camp is divided into two private halves, each with four tents that accommodate a total of eight guests. Tents have a hand basin, full shower and flushing toilet. While the camp’s appointments are simple, in keeping with the classic safari ambience of old, guests don’t lack for comfort. High-quality cotton linens and bush laundry service are among the many amenities provided in this remote setting. And there’s nothing as romantic as enjoying a meal prepared over the campfire as you dine by the glow of paraffin lanterns and starlight. Both day and night game drives are offered in open 4x4 vehicles. Guided wildlife drives can be interspersed with nature walks (weather dependent).
