Linyanti Ebony is one of the African Bush Camps family-focused camps situated in a private wilderness concession in the Chobe Enclave. The Chobe Enclave is home to large herds of elephants - giving you the perfect opportunity to encounter these giants up close.
Linyanti Ebony exudes a sense of charm and is built on raised wooden decks which overlook the Linyanti Marshlands. Being in a remote area, the camp is designed to blend in with its natural surroundings with 4 traditional Meru-styled tents. The family tent consists of 2 interleading rooms, making the camp ideal for both families and groups seeking an authentic safari experience. The main area encompasses an expansive lounge and dining area, sparkling plunge pool, cosy fire circle and boma; the perfect place to strengthen family ties on your Chobe safari.
There are a variety of ways to explore the area, including morning and afternoon game drives and walking safaris, or nature walks for children under 16 years. When water levels allow exploring the Linyanti wetlands on a mokoro. And, if staying 3 nights or more, take to the skies and take in the beauty of the area and its wildlife with a complimentary helicopter safari.
When you visit the Chobe National Park, you will never forget the first glimpse of the dazzling, deep blue Chobe River, as it winds its way through sandy terrain, small towns, lush floodplains, dense forests of cathedral mopane trees, and endless broadleaf woodlands. The park is named after this majestic river that protects 10.700 km² of the northern Kalahari desert, providing ensuing wilderness and a game density that is steadily remarkable.
Famed for its massive elephant populations, big herds of buffalo (matched only by some large lion prides) and incredible birdlife, Chobe National Park will leave an everlasting memory. Where else can you find such an amazing riverfront, with bustling wildlife, undisturbed predators, heavenly landscapes and tranquil lodges? The most accessible area of the park is the Chobe Riverfront, this is also where you will find the largest concentration of wildlife. For a more predator-rich area: head off to Linyanti Marshes. Or nourish your soul in the remote Savuti area. Wherever you go in this park, wildlife encounters are plentiful and all of Chobe feels like true wilderness. It is a place that can be enjoyed by everyone: couples, families and seasoned Africa travellers.
We will explain more about the different areas below. But first, a little bit about the history of this special place.
The original inhabitants of Chobe were the Bushmen, followed by the – impressively named – Hambukushu, Bayei and Basubiya. In the 1850s, locals saw explorer David Livingstone passing through the area on his way to the Victoria Falls (a little over an hour away from Chobe National Park), and some big-game hunters seeking trophies and ivory. Luckily, for all the flora and fauna of this unique land, the area was first protected as a game reserve in 1961 and proclaimed as a national park in 1968.
Up to this day, the game density remains exceptional. You will be forced to halt frequently because a parade of wildlife wants to pass by. Much better than stopping for a red light in traffic, right? Moderating the number of visitors to the park keeps it from feeling ‘too busy’, adding to the remote and exclusive Chobe safari experience.
