With the sweeping savannah of the northern Kalahari as its stage, Chobe National Park is classic big-game country where buffalo, elephant, and exceptionally large prides of lion have the leading roles. Fringing the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park is a force to be reckoned with, as it is home to one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. The emerald floodplains and sweeping grasslands offer a profusion of migrating herbivores, such as tsessebe, waterbuck and wildebeest, which are followed closely by the abundant predator species of leopard, lion, wild dog, cheetah and many more - a gloriously never-ending list! The area is also famous for its elephant populations, with the largest herds in the world, so let your guide pick the best sun-downer spot and wait as thousands of these gentle giants quietly walk past you on their way to the watering holes and river banks.
Marooned in the north by its neighbour Chobe and the Namibian border, Linyanti Reserve is a private concession open only to guests staying in one of three camps – making it ideal for those in search of a quiet yet high-end corner in Botswana’s northern wilderness. A medley of ancient floodplains, thick woodlands and carving waterways, this region is just as lively in the day as it is at night, offering superb chances of spotting leopards on game drives, inquisitive honey badgers in the forested areas and packs of wild dog hunting in the grassy plains.
