The camp is situated north of Savuti campgrounds under big shady trees. There are 5 campsites in Linyanti each with its own water stand pipe and braai area. It is very secluded with a small ablution facility (flush toilets), hot and cold water showers. It is unfenced allowing animals entry into the campgrounds, so be alert.
Reservations must be made in advance and paid at the Maun Office of the S.K.L. Group of Camps (Mapula lodge). Once the camping fee has been paid, a confirmation voucher will be received where upon Park Entry fees and vehicle fees must be paid through the Department of Wildlife at central pay points or at the gates. For more information on pay points contact the DWNP at +267(0)686 1265 or +267(0)397 1405. The entry fee for the park is a P120 per person, and P50 per vehicle, per day. (March 2012).

COMMUNICATION IN THE PARK:
No telephone or internet is available in the park. (May-12).
No fuel is on sale in the park. (May-12).
You have to drive through very deep sand in order to reach this camp. (Jul-12).
The road from Savuti camp to Linyanti (running NNW) is the main route to Linyanti through the park and no permit or anything is needed for this road. (August 2015).
In the rainy season the road running SE from Linyanti gets very, very nasty. After a couple of heavy showers it has many depressions that fill to the extent that one can’t tell which is the latest detour of the detour of the detour – all you can see is water all around, even shrubs get submerged. Underfoot you can expect deep rutting and silt.
The direct track between Linyanti and Savuti runs across coarser sand and doesn’t get as badly affected. (August 2015).
It is against the law to collect fire wood in national parks and make sure you bring enough fire wood with you when visiting the camp.
“There are only three sites at Linyanti and the middle one seems to be permanently occupied by Wilderness Safaris. All three however are on the bank of the swamp and overlook it. The ablution block leaves something to be desired. There is a water point if you can find it in the middle of the tour operators kitchen and the trees offer plenty of shade.” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
