Savuti Camp

Savuti Camp

For almost 30 years, Savuti Camp overlooked the fertile grassland of the dry Savute Channel. However, since the channel started flowing again in 2008, the camp has been rebirthed. Nestled in a remote part of northern Botswana’s Linyanti Concession, the Savuti Camp is 10 miles “downstream” from the Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the Savute waterway.

Seven en-suite resident tents surround the camp’s thatch-roofed dining area, plunge pool, fire pit, and expansive viewing deck. All the camp’s facilities are built on raised wooden platforms, providing a superior perspective on the surrounding landscape. While the Linyanti harbors the usual grazing herds, the more sought after predators include hyaena, jackal, wild dog, lion, cheetah, and leopard. Day and night game drives yield close encounters with these animals. Unique to the Savuti Camp is the opportunity to observe the Savute Channel and its wildlife. Hippos are the main attraction, but a diversity of wildlife converge on the Savute in the drier winter months.

The Savute Channel is a study in the ever-changing geography and habitats of our earth. All at the same time, the now-flowing channel serves as a life-line, an obstacle, a home, a food source, and a playground for the region’s diverse wildlife.
