Trip Overview

The Linyanti Concession and the Okavango Delta are among the best wildlife viewing areas in Botswana. The combination of these two camps offers you a diverse perspective on the country with the parched wilderness of Savuti followed by the wetlands and rivers surrounding Vumbura Plains. 

Points of Interest

Okavango

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square km.  There are an estimated 200 000 large mammals in and around the Okavango Delta, and over 400 bird species, allowing visitors some of the best game viewing in the world.

Linyanti

On the southern banks of the Linyanti River, is the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve.  Linyanti is an absolutely superb safari area, whose dry gameviewing is on a par with that of the Okavango.  The area is renowned for its predators and game which migrate to the Linyanti River during dry winter months and disperse into the vast wilderness after the first rains.

Traveler Reviews

Itinerary

  1. Private road transfer from Victoria Falls Town to Kasane Airport.  We will then fly from Kasane to Savuti Camp.

    Savuti Camp is involved in elephant research and the possible impact that large herds have on the vegetation and other animal species.

  2. Other than the ancient watercourse - the cyclically-flowing Savute Channel - the concession is made up of mopane woodland and riparian forest and floodplain around the Linyanti River. Once offering an abundance of water giving animals the opportunity to spread out through the concession, the now mostly dry area of Savute channel offers guests exquisite game viewing as animals are forced to congregate around waterholes making for exciting and dramatic interactions between species.

    The activities on offer include day and night game drives, guided walks (on request) and seasonal boating and canoeing.  Nearby platforms and hides also present excellent wildlife opportunities.

  3. Elephant and plains game are in abundance. Other species seen are roan, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog.

    Savuti Camp is a birder's paradise. The area has been internationally recognized as an IBA (Important Bird Area).

  4. Depart from Savuti Camp and arrive later at Vumbura Plains Camp.

    Vumbura Plains Camp is part of a ground-breaking partnership that brings the benefits of ecotourism to five rural villages. 

  5. The concession is hugely diverse with floodplains, wooded islands, mopane woodland and Okavango waterways. Game drives turn into aquatic adventures when making your way through flooded plains. 

  6. You can explore the varied habitats by open 4x4 vehicle (day and night), boat, mokoro, or on foot. Excursions on the mokoro offer a completely different perspective as guests can view game at eye level by the water's edge, however, the true value of the mokoro experience is to appreciate the natural beauty and ecological diversity that the water offers.

  7. Woodland-loving antelope like sable and kudu roam side by side with water-loving red lechwe and reedbuck.  The diversity of prey species results in a wide variety of predators: from lion and spotted hyena, to leopard, and occasionally cheetah and wild dog.

  8. The diversity is a boon for keen birders with Rosy-throated Longclaw, Black Coucal and Wattled Crane.

  9. Depart from Vumbura Camp, and arrive later and Maun Airport.
