Botswana Linyanti Wetlands



Botswana Linyanti Wetlands

Linyanti Wetlands is one of the remotest and most inaccessible parts of Africa. It offers more private safari opportunities than most national parks allow, with walking and night drives, as well as off-road driving. Shared by a very small number of private camps, the enormous Linyanti Wetlands is one of the least visited in Botswana, and ensures a very private and exclusive experience. The tour includes Chobe National Park, Linyanti Wetlands, Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Kalahari Desert. 

This comprehensive, private safari adventure through Botswana, visits a wide variety of landscapes and wildlife. Highlights during the dry season include big herds of buffalo and close encounters of unique wildlife species such as aardvark. Large herds of elephants can be viewed at the rivers and waterholes, and thousands of zebras concentrate in the winter before heading south. This is a private tour with stays at renowned camps in each area.

And, experience Botswana’s Okavango Delta & Makgadikgadi Pans.
