Linyanti and Selinda

Seclusion, wilderness and exclusivity make these areas very special indeed. Both Linyanti and Selinda regions lie sandwiched between the Chobe National Park to the east and the Okavango to the south. The beautiful Kwando River flows south from Angola into Botswana filling the Linyanti Swamps before weaving its way seamlessly into the ancient watercourse of the Selinda Spillway, which is miraculously fed from the South East by the Okavango Delta.  This is real African big game country and is home to a breath-taking and unrivalled list of animals including elephant, lion, cheetah, buffalo, waterbuck, reedbuck, giraffe, impala, kudu, hyena, jackal, serval and caracal. It is also home to one of the largest populations of wild dog left in the world.   

We believe that the greatest attraction of this part of Botswana is the feeling that it evokes of extreme isolation and of being removed from the world as we know it and being part of something much greater.

It is not the length of life, but the depth of life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
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!
- Leslie Siben, 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.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
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
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
