Boasting two-thirds of the Savute Channel within its 125,000-hectare boundaries and the unique terrains of the Linyanti River and extensive woodland, the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve offers a vastly different experience in comparison to its southern neighbour, the Okavango Delta. This is what makes it an ideal add-on to an itinerary venturing in that area.
Renowned for its high concentration of herbivores and predators, visitors will be treated to large herds of elephants, giraffe, and buffalo traversing across the terrain while various antelope and zebra bound nervously away from the stalking big cats that are never too far behind. The unpredictable Savute Channel has been flowing since 2008, attracting the reserve’s inhabitants to its banks.
With a select few camps and its remote location (only accessible by light aircraft), Linyanti Reserve offers a truly intimate getaway that affords up close and personal interactions with the animals. Off-roading, night-drives, safaris by land and water along with walking tours, fishing, and sleep-outs in hides – visitors are promised the African getaway of a lifetime. The window period for prime game-viewing opportunities runs from the beginning of June until early November.
