The shore area of the Linyanti is considered a jewel in the Chobe National Park. The tropical swampland is a stark contrast to the Savuti portion of the park and could pass for a 900 square kilometer miniature version of the Okavango Delta. Concession areas and private nature reserves, such as the Selinda Reserve, lie on either side of the narrow national park strip, which is the smallest of the four sections in the Chobe National Park. With only a few, very high-quality lodges and safari camps, you have exclusive access to an almost untouched wilderness with magnificent wildlife.
Dense papyrus swamps border the clear waterways, and large, shady trees border the banks. A particularly large number of animals stay in the Linyanti region between June and August. Zebras regularly migrate in their thousands between the Mababe Depression and the Linyanti Swamps. Elephants, kudus, impalas, lions, hyenas and hippos are also very common here. The Linyanti Swamps are also home to the rare Sitatungas. The swampy landscape is also an absolute paradise for birds.
