Linyanti Ebony Camp is at the core of the Chobe Enclave which is fast becoming Botswana’s most sought-after wildlife haven. With just four tents it is perfect for a more private and family oriented safari lodge experience.
Linyanti Ebony Camp is a wonderfully small exclusive and intimate bush camp set in the Chobe Enclave region where the Linyanti reserve and greater Chobe area meet, away from the main traffic areas. The camp sits along the Linyanti waterfront with beautiful views out across the floodplain.
The small size of the camps affords exceptionally high levels of service across the board whilst in camp and on safari with all members of staff excelling at their respective roles. The camp is owned by Africa Bush camps, one of the most authentic, pioneering style of safari company in Southern Africa.
The main mess area is lovely without being overly pretentious about décor design, raised on a large wood deck and decent size swimming pool. The guest tents in contrast are surprisingly luxurious yet keeping the tradition of safari going with bucket showers. However there is a flush toilet in the large en-suite bathroom.
One part of this camp we really lovely is that it is unplugged. No wifi, cell phone signal or internet facilities of any kind. The mantra, “disconnect to reconnect", is strong here and we are big proponents of this ideal.
Linyanti ebony Camp is ideal for families as there is unusually no age limit on children. As such a larger family of 6 or 8 persons could take over the whole camp for themselves and there is no better way of arranging a family safari than that.
African Bushcamps who own and run a selection of camps including Linyanti Ebony are among our favourite operators. This set of camps is owned by Becks Ndlovu who is known personally to one of our directors and is a Zimbabwean Professional guide of the highest quality taking all of his camps back to as authentic and pioneering as safaris were of a bygone era. Something that is becoming much more rare than we’d like.
Built on raised decking overlooking the Linyanti Marsh, Linyanti Ebony is an intimate tented camp granting panoramic views of its exquisite natural setting. The camp’s mindful design offers an authentic, eco-conscious base from which to explore this significant wilderness.
The tents have comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets, fixed showers and hot water.
The spacious two-bedroom family tent has a self-contained lounge area and private deck looking out over the wetlands plus, a spacious en-suite bathroom that features a shower and roll-top bath. Larger family groups or parties of friends travelling together can reserve Linyanti Ebony exclusively with a minimum of eight people.
