The land is situated just by the Linyanti river, which is a tributary of the Zambezy river. 50 kilometers down stream to the East the river becomes the Chobe river for 80 Km and then flows in the Zambezi river at Kasane. The Victoria falls are situated a further 70Km away. Towards the North you enter the Caprivi strip which is part of Namibia. In the direction of the West at approximatly 80Km you arrive in the famous Savuti marsh. The land is located in a past flood plain and above the Linyanti fault system. We are surrounded by the Chobe national park, the chobe forest reserve, the Okavango Delta and the Moremi game park and the Caprivi game park. We are exactly in the center point of the future "Kavango Zambezi Trans Frontier Conservation Area" which will cover 270'000 square kilometers in five countries.

The land is centered in a mopane forest, and has a rectangular shape, with its north side boarding a river and overlooking the Linyanti swamps. It is oriented NW SE. We are in presence of a clay soil forming a flat landscape. In some areas the land gently undulates, producing an alternating of depressions and mounds. A slight elevation occurs from north to south. Five specific areas(see map) have a higher density of big trees, like the Rain tree, Acacias, Ledwood, Purple pod terminalia and Bird plum tree offering nice shaded areas.

Going from the NE corner towards the SE corner, on a distance of 190m the area has predominantly been colonized by Sickle Bush and a few other types of plants and trees like the Fever Berry, the candle pod acacia, camel thorne, the Kalahari apple leaf, the Shepard tree etc... Further on the mopane woodlands dominates, there is a few holes dug by elephants and also anteater borrows. Many termites mounds with wolly caper bushes are scattered on this part of the land. The mopane woodland entirely covers the center part of the land on a length of 200m. Arriving at the SE corner, the area clears up, and the woodland is gradually replaced by an open savanna type of land with water holes. Two large pans borders the southern corners of the plot.

Coming back from the SW corner to the NW corner one encounters a dirt road, access through the land, which meanders through many various types of short and high grasses like the Hyperrinia thatching grass. Then this sandy way reaches the middle of the plot and continues beneath the mopane trees through Bristle grass, love grass and finger grass. Approching the riverbank, the road disappears leaving ground for camps sites and fire places surrounded by massive dead trees. A nice slope descents 1.8m on a distance of 25m before reaching a large lagoon. All over the land there are elephants paths and many animal tracks.

The first 100m from the water do not make part of the land, they are non constructible, but fall under our management, meaning we can build some non permanent facilities on it.
