Camp Savuti epitomises the Botswana safari experience. From the abundant game viewing to the authentic, tented accommodation; this is the traditional way to spend time in one of Africa's most superb wildlife regions.
The Savuti is a region within the heart of the Chobe National Park, secretly located away from the peak season crowds at the Chobe riverfront. This remote homeground of Camp Savuti is located on the banks of the Savuti Channel and close to the famous Savuti Marsh.
The Savuti Channel is one of the best regions in Africa to see the rare and endangered African wild dog. These canines live and hunt in packs, and collectively, they are some of the most well-coordinated hunters in the wild.
The abundance of Lions in the Savuti Channel has inspired many filmmakers to observe and follow the adventures of the renowned big cats for over twenty years. It is said that the big cats of the Savuti channel would form large prides, and worked together to take down elephants as prey. While this behaviour is not seen often any more, there is no telling what could happen in the wild.
TRAVELLING TO SAVUTI
Travelling to the camp includes a light air transfer from Maun (or Kasane) to the Savuti airstrip in the Chobe National Park. The approximately 40 minute flight offers a view of the beautiful Chobe river which marks the beginning of our safari experience.
Upon arrival at Savuti airstrip, guests will be met by a representative from Camp Savuti and then enjoy a 40 minute drive to the camp. This ride takes guests through the Chobe National Park and can be an exciting experience when they spot a number of animals before arriving at the camp.
Enjoy our elevated luxury tents each with a private deck where you can watch animals browse the area from the comfort of your lodging. Enjoy the pleasure and memorable outdoor showers where you will be right under the brightly glistening stars. Each tent is equipped with air-conditioners to make your stay with us comfortable.
