It runs a distance of 100 kilometres from the Chobe River, through a gap in the sand ridge, to the Mababe Depression.

Linyanti River follows a line representing the extreme southwestern extension of East Africa's Great Rift Valley. Linyanti River is in a way similar to the Okavango Delta with its papyrus-lined waterways, extensive reed banks, and towering riverine forest. The river forms a swamp area, reminiscent of the one found in the Okavango. It boasts large concentrations of elephants, lions, sables, roans, hippos, and wild dogs, building to a peak in the dry winter months. The area also offers spectacular birding year-round and is best known for its enormous herds of elephant which move down to Linyanti River at the start of the winter months and only move back inland once the main rains arrive.
