Linyanti Kwando Concession
, also known as NG14
, is the most westerly of the four private safari areas that make up the Linyanti Waterfront
area of northern Botswana
The concession covers an enormous 2330 square kilometres and is restricted to just 36 guests in two small camps, a humongous 64 square kilometres per person, which is an exceptionally low guest density.
The vast majority of this area is dry mopane woodland, of generally low wildlife density. The more interesting sections all lie to the eastern side, with substantial stands of hardwood forest and large open floodplains dotted with palm-tree islands running down to the Kwando River.
The area has an intensely rich and varied range of wildlife, especially during the May/Oct dry season, when the predator action is second to none, notably lions, hyenas, leopards and wild-dogs.
The northern sector tends to attract large herds of elephants and buffaloes, as well as being the most reliable location in Africa for wild-dog denning in May/Jun.
What we like most about this area is the very serious approach that the owners have towards their safari guiding. You can expect to be worked much harder here than in most other camps, with some very serious vehicle safari and night vehicle safari.
Motorboat safari is also possible, but rather secondary, whilst walking safari is rarely offered due to the intense focus on predators.
By the very high standards of this part of the world, this concession does offer a slightly lower standard of camps and hosting, although this really is a minor point if wildlife is your primary focus.SeasonsAccommodationTrips
