Linyanti Expeditions
Linyanti and Selinda

Linyanti Expeditions is the smaller sister camp of African Bush Camp flagship, Linyanti Bush Camp. Perfect for the traveller who wants a little more adventure in their safari experience, this is glamping at its finest. Made up of 6 tents, and so a maximum of 12 guests, this is an intimate adult-only resort (for ages 16 and over).

This is a mobile camp, that moves between Linyanti on Botswana’s northern border with Namibia and Nxaipan in the east. For 6 months of the year the camp is in Linyanti (May – Nov), and 4 months in Nxaipan (Jan – April) to follow the migration of the Zebra who travel this 300km journey twice a year to find water. There is no doubt that this camp is all about the wildlife and activities, and a stay here includes morning and evening safari drives, mokoro boat tours when the water levels allow, walking safari through the bush, and sundowners at scenic spots amongst the wildlife. The camp itself is simple, with one communal area with lounge and bar, firepit, and communal dinning room, staff quarters, and the accommodations are spread out in an open site, no enclosure to keep the wildlife out – it is not unusual to see animals walk into the camp itself. A rule of camp - one must be accompanied back to their rooms after dark by a guide, in case a stray elephant should wander across their path! As the camps is moved twice yearly, they make no permanent impact on their surroundings and leave no trace after moving to the next site. Perfect for the environmentally-conscious traveller.

The tents are simple yet comfortable dwellings on wooden stilts elevated off the ground, and all looking out to the Namibian border which is just 4km away. The tents are made up of one main bedroom with king or twin beds, bathroom with porter loo and outside shower, and a separate awning made only of netting where beds can be made up if you wish to sleep under the stars, a unique experience offered at very few camps. Although there is no running water in the tents, there are bucket showers with warm running water, and if you want to have a shower you need only ask your attentive camp host to arrange it. There is no WiFi here, and few electricity charging points, so we recommend embracing the digital detox during your stay and bringing portable battery packs for cameras.

The wildlife is astonishing in this untouched corner of Botswana; lions, leopards, buffalo, warthogs, ostrich and a huge population of elephants who wander over from neighbouring Chobe National Park in their hundreds. Linyanti concession is rented by the African Bush Camps group meaning that the experiences here are well-managed, respectful, exclusive, and flexible in what you can see and do. The guides are impressive and have a wealth of knowledge to impart about the behaviours of the animals. The Linyanti team are wonderful and you’ll be welcomed into camp with song and dance and never be without drinks or snacks whenever you desire.

Guests dine communally making this a sociable and friendly camp where everyone comes together to tell about their wildlife encounters from the day. Sit around the firepit with a glass of wine, listening to crackle of wood burning, and the wildlife around you in the dark; the hippos grunting from the marsh, the cicadas chirping in the bushes, and the elephants moving through the bush. If you are looking for a truly back-to-nature wilderness experience, Linyanti Expeditions is for you.

All activities, food and local soft and alcoholic beverages are included in your stay.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
