Camp Savuti

With only five tents on offer, Camp Savuti is a small and intimate camp in one of Botswana’s legendary wildlife hotspots.

With only five tents on offer, Camp Savuti is a small and intimate camp in one of Botswana’s legendary wildlife hotspots. The Savuti area of the Chobe National Park has long been the destination of choice for safari connoisseurs and documentary film-makers: its open woodlands and savannah teem with big game and big cats, and its waterholes are famous for their unedited drama.

Camp Savuti lies on the banks of the Savuti Channel, its waters now flowing after a 30-year absence. Morning and late afternoon game drives go in search of the area’s animals – docile bull elephants as well as battling lions and hyenas are Savuti’s ‘signature sightings’ but leopards, wild dogs and cheetahs are often seen and a summer zebra migration adds even more excitement.

The camp’s tented suites are raised off the ground and offer everything you need for a comfortable and intimate stay. Savuti’s setting at the heart of the Chobe National Park puts it equidistant between the Okavango Delta and the Chobe River, making Camp Savuti ideal for overlanders and travellers on a mobile camping safari.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Affordable luxury in prime position
  • Legendary game viewing destination
  • Morning & afternoon game drives
  • Ideal for overland itineraries

One of the first public campsites to be privatised, Camp Savuti offers its guests the friendly atmosphere of its lounge and bar when not out on game drives.

The camp welcomes children, and a babysitting service is available.

Activities at Camp Savuti

  • Morning Game Drives
  • Afternoon Game Drives
  • Photographic Hides
  • Bird Watching

A setting on the now-flowing Savuti Channel gives Camp Savuti prime position in an area already famous for its game viewing. Guests can simply sit at camp or on their private viewing deck and watch elephants amble down to drink in front of them. But it is during the early morning and late afternoon game drives that guests will appreciate the singularity of Savuti.

Expert guides reveal its secrets, not least during the summer months when a zebra migration passes through and impala give birth en masse. Well known for its predators, Savuti also has a reputation for more unusual game sightings – desert species, rare predators, migrant birds … anything can happen on a Savuti game drive!
