Savuti Camp is located on the Savute Channel, which for many years was a dry, wide-open ribbon of grassland snaking through the adjoining woodland. In 2008, the waters returned, and Savuti Camp now has front-row seats to view the abundant game that has congregated and adapted in its wake. The site of the camp is about 17 kilometres “downstream” from the Zibadianja Lagoon – the source of the Channel.
Accommodation comprises seven large en-suite canvas-and-thatch rooms that are raised off the ground and face onto the Savute Channel. From the thatched dining area, a pool and large viewing area with fire pit extend outwards on raised wooden decks towards the new waters that flow past the camp. Activities on offer are day and night game drives, nature walks with a guide (depending on qualified guide availability) and boating (water levels permitting).
Savuti Camp – Standard Tents
There are six twin bedded tents. The twin beds can be pulled together to make a double bed. There is one guide/pilot tent which is smaller than a standard tent.
Savuti Camp – Family Tent
There is one family tent with two inter-leading bedrooms each with its own bathroom and entrance.
Savuti Camp – Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area where predators and elephant are often the highlight. Plains game and the diverse birdlife also offer fantastic sightings. The open 4×4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people, allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.
Savuti Camp – Night Drives
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. These often include the lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and, if you are extremely lucky, the elusive pangolin!
Savuti Camp – Nature Walks
On request and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller details you miss when travelling by vehicle.
Savuti Camp – Hide and Star Bed
The Savuti hide is an elevated platform from which to view and photograph animals and birds. Sleep-outs are also possible here, as it is equipped with bed rolls, mosquito nets and a long-drop toilet to become a star bed.
Savuti Camp – Birding
With the Linyanti Concession being an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), birding is understandably outstanding at Savuti Camp, from slaty egret in the water to kori bustard in the dry areas.
