Hello J Rose,

I agree with Gaurang -- if you only have seven days, the Savuti/Chitabe/Kwetsani combination is a good one. Kwetsani offers water activities year-round so you will be able to do mokoro and boat trips from thee.

Cheers,
Julian

I have no idea what they look like, but the just opened Linyanti Bushcamp also features hides and I am happy to say includes walking safaris, as well as morning and night game drives.

(www.africanbushcamps.com)

Although the photos of Linyanti Bushcamp are not yet up on the website, by checking out their Somalisa Camp in Hwange, it is similar.

Here is the Fact Sheet for Linyanti Bushcamp (Some may like that children under 12 are not allowed).

Fact Sheet Linyanti Bush Camp

Linyanti Bush Camp is a small, intimate 12 bedded tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve, which borders the western boundary of Chobe in the Chobe Enclave. The camp is limited to small exclusive groups who seek a personalized experience in a private concession away from the main tourist’s routes. Activities from the camp consist of game drives, walking, spot lighting and hides. This safari camps provides the perfect atmosphere for an authentic and wild safari experience.
The area is best known for its large populations of Elephant and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers especially during the dry season. Lion, sable, roan, leopard, wild dog, and a number of the plains game can be enjoyed at Linyanti. The rare and elusive sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile can be found in the surrounding marshes. The Linyanti Swamps are one of the most attractive areas in the park as it is the only source of water in the dry months where a lot of the wildlife moves to, boasting a great diversity of game and a restful atmosphere. The area's relative remoteness makes it a favored wild safari destination and one of the best sought after areas in Northern Botswana. The area also offers spectacular birding all year round and is best known for its enormous herds of elephants which move down to the Linyanti River at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive.

Thanks, Julian.

Rocco,

Sounds like a good trip.....looks like you have a shot to see 3 different packs of dogs (Lagoon, Selinda or Kwara packs). With luck on your side, u will go, 3/3 in your sightings.....However, your best shot right now stands at Lagoon.

Hari
