The Linyanti Wildlife Management area is a hidden gem tucked away in the north-eastern corner of Chobe National Park. A long channel known as the Selinda Spillway links the Linyanti to the Okavango Delta and provides an opportunity for exceptional canoeing safaris.
Due to its remoteness, the Linyanti is a beautiful, unspoiled region of waterways and lagoons, riverine forests, huge trees and palm tree islands. It is renowned as one of the best game viewing areas in the region, supporting a great diversity of wildlife, with large herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra.
The Selinda Reserve is one of Africa’s great wildlife reserves. Part of the Great Plains Conservation project, spearheaded by National Geographic photographers and filmmakers Derek and Beverley Joubert.
Selinda borders Linyanti to the East and the Kwando reserve to the North.
The Selinda Spillway is a usually dry channel that connects the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. On the rare occasion that these channels connect, Selinda springs to life with a game density that is hard to beat anywhere.
