The Linyanti river defines the border between Namibia's Caprivi Strip and Botswana and is part of the vast Zambezi system, its seasonal waters flowing east to merge with the Chobe river. Remote and wild, the area is also at the extremity of the Great Rift system. It is less visited than the famous reserves to its west and east in the Okavango and Chobe National Park.
With five luxurious venues to choose from, Wilderness Safaris has the best selection of walking safari bases in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. Kings Pool and DumaTau (and nearby Little DumaTau) are lodge-style camps adjacent to the Linyanti while Savuti and Linyanti Tented Camp are both in the classic safari tent style and located in the watershed area between the Okavango and Linyanti.
All of the Wilderness Safari lodges and camps offer walking safaris, or combinations of driving, boating and walking amidst the mixed landscape of woodlands, swamp and grasslands.
As it's an area with big game, walks are restricted to 13 years and older, and the normal maximum group is six guests.
Dawn walks are available as the main activity of the morning, or can be combined with vehicle and boat exploration. A game viewing vehicle is used to drive from camp to the starting point, and the duration and pace is determined by conditions and guest preferences.
Activities start early to make the most of the best wildlife viewing opportunities and rich light, and guests can either return to camp for breakfast or avail of a bush breakfast in the wilds.
