Chobe National Park - Linyanti Marsh
This is an area on the North Western boundary of Chobe with most of the actual marsh actually outside of the Chobe National Park and straddles the Botswana and Namibian border. The Linyanti Marsh is formed by the Kwando River that flows from the North and then hits the Western extension of the Rift Valley on the Botswana border and then floods out to form the Linyanti Marsh . The Linyanti Marsh then overflows to form the Linyanti River which then becomes the Chobe River further on and eventually flows into the Zambezi River.
I have had some of my most memorable game viewing experiences here but it is the time in between these sightings that I feel makes Linyanti wildlife area a place that can be excellent but slow at times. It’s big strength is that it is remote, has few safari camps which gives it a good Wilderness quality. You will always expect to see here elephants, buffalo, waterbuck, impala, hippos and red lechwe and it’s predators include lion, African wild dog, leopard spotted and brown hyenas.
