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 that is secretly located away from the peak season crowds at the Chobe riverfront. It is the remote homeground of Camp Savuti, positioned 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 renown big cats in this area for over twenty years. Years ago, the big cats of the Savuti channel formed 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 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.
