Day 4: Bordering Western boundary of Chobe National Park

After breakfast at Khwai Tented Camp, you will depart to Chobe National Park.


Light Aircraft flight from Moremi Game Reserve to Chobe National Park.


On the edge of the Linyanti Marshes, Linyanti Bush Camp stands in a private reserve known as the Chobe Enclave, bordering the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The Linyanti Marshes were largely dry when Linyanti Bush Camp was built. Then, in 2008, heavy rains in the Kwando and Linyanti river catchments, combined with the suspected shifting of fault lines, caused the Linyanti River to flood onto the marshes. As a result, the Chobe Enclave is now a mix of wet and dry terrain. Reed- and grass-filled swamps stretch out in front of Linyanti Bush Camp, creating an open, though not particularly idyllic, outlook.


From the comfort of your own outdoor seating area, within a spacious tent, you can enjoy the vast look over Linyanti landscape. Accommodation comes with all the comfortable amenities you would expect, while the elevated communal area offers a lounge, bar and dining area with a well-stocked bookshelf – a welcome retreat after a day of activities.
