Wildlife Viewing & Activities

The Linyanti is joined by the Selinda Spillway to the Okavango Delta, a dramatic expanse of big game country filled with large herds of buffalo, elephant and zebra. Remote and unspoiled, the Linyanti concession comprises diverse habitats, from riverine forest to open plains laced with waterways and dotted with palm islands. While wildlife numbers are excellent year-round, the Linyanti’s perennial water attracts great herds that walk well-worn game paths to slake their thirst during the dry season. Predators follow in their footsteps, making for exciting game viewing. Birdlife is also exceptional here. Both day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles are offered in the private northern sector of the concession. Guided game and bird walks can be interspersed with boat excursions. One of the region's most unique attractions is watching scores of elephants refresh themselves in the area's multitude of waterways.

The below chart helps to illustrate major wildlife sightings often experienced in the Linyanti Reserve adjacent to the Chobe National Park. This area is well known for elephant herds, which are at their peak in the drier months of July to October, and it's a great location to track wild dogs and see lion. A variety of other mammals, birds and reptiles may be seen as well. Exact sightings will depend on weather trends and wildlife movements.
