Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Maun – Linyanti Reserve.

A&K welcome to Botswana where you are met and assisted to your light aircraft flight to Savuti Camp, positioned along the Savute Channel in the private Linyanti Concession. This wild, unfenced wildlife sanctuary is well known for its large number of predators including lion and African wild dog, plains game as well as huge elephant herds. Before your first game viewing activity this afternoon, settle into your accommodation, featuring seven classic spacious, canvas tents raised on wooden decks with a large private veranda for your own private slice of Africa.

Days 2–3: Linyanti Reserve.

Setting out at dawn, when predators are active, guides are as keen as guests to discover the riches of each day. Once the sun is high and strong, retreat with the herds to camp. Then, as the sun begins to wane, head out late afternoon in search of nocturnal wildlife and the action that comes with sunset. Short guided walks from camp are offered as well.
