Savute Explorer Camp

Savute Reserve, Botswana

The landscape changes in Savute, with its intermittently flowing channel. A corner of the Chobe National Park, Savute is particularly well known for its high concentration of lion, which vie for dominance with the spotted hyena. The African wild dog also thrives in the area. Like the remainder of Chobe, Savute has large numbers of elephant. The region is also rich in antelope, with common species such as impala and kudu encountered alongside giants such as the eland. Waterbuck may be spotted in areas with thicker vegetation and visitors may catch sight of the aristocratic roan and sable. Renowned for lion and other predator viewing, the landscape around Savute is starkly beautiful. Mopane forest gives way to acacia savanna with rocky outcrops. The mysterious Savute Channel, which dries up periodically, has recently begun to flow for the first time in more than two decades and has proved an irresistible attraction for a high concentration of wildlife.

Providing exceptional game viewing, this camping adventure allows guests to experience the best of the region by vehicle, on foot, by traditional canoe and by boat, exploring both national parks and private wildlife concessions. You will reside in rustic yet comfortable and spacious safari tents with crisp linen-adorned beds and en suite bathrooms with flush WC and refreshing bucket shower. Fall asleep to the sounds of the bush, breathing in the fresh air, and enjoying a truly authentic bush experience in the middle of an untouched wilderness.
