For one of the best local experiences, head to the bountiful Linyanti region. Tucked away in an extensive corner of Chobe National Park, the Linyanti is renowned for its rich biodiversity of sprawling grasslands, muddy lagoons and staggering forest, providing shade and sustenance to large grazing herds.
To jump off the grid and totally unplug, venture to the luxury solar-panelled King's Pool Camp, found in the heart of Linyanti's lush surroundings. A resplendent tented sanctuary overlooking a lagoon of wallowing hippos and grazing elephants crossing the Linyanti River, nine thatched-roof rooms complete with lofty verandas offer never-ending vistas of Chobe.
Days are marked here by the captivating sounds of bellowing hippos, and drawn to a close with panoramic sunsets across Namibia's Caprivi Strip. Reached solely by a fly-in experience with Wilderness Safaris, here you'll feel like you've uncovered the true heart of the African bush.
