The Linyanti Concession covers 120,000 hectares of pristine wilderness.
It encompasses the winding Linyanti River, iridescent green papyrus swamps, shady forests and open grasslands. With such diverse habitats, the game is varied and prolific.
Wildlife of the Linyanti Concession
The concession area is superb for elephant, at their most spectacular along the Linyanti River, where breeding herds in their hundreds can frequently be seen crossing. They emerge, black and glistening, before trundling into the forests, trumpeting, cracking branches and leaving a cloud of dust in their wake.
There are some particularly pretty drives along the floodplains where red lechwe, impala, zebra, waterbuck and giraffe can be found, among a myriad of colorful birdlife including little bee-eaters, glossy ibis and wattled cranes.
Away from the river, forests of jackal berry and bird-plum trees are alive with large troops of baboon. Roan, sable, kudu, impala and buffalo can be seen shading under apple-leaf trees, and warthogs forage in the grass.
Finally, predators are ever-present with large resident prides of lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah and several packs of roaming wild dog.
