Camp Savuti, Chobe National Park
The Savuti Marsh, fed by the Savuti Channel, has developed a reputation over the years as one of the world’s premier predator viewing areas, boasting one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent. A number of award-winning documentary films shot in Savuti have cemented its reputation.
The Channel, dry since 1982, started flowing again in 2010 and is now once again flooding the Marsh, an area of sweet grasses that attracts herbivores of every description and, this being Africa, their attendant predators.
Camp Savuti is a 20-40 minute game drive from the Savuti airstrip in Chobe National Park.
Camp Savuti is a small, intimate camp of 5 Meru tents (pictured below) accommodating a maximum of 10 guests in comfort and style. The tents have been positioned to ensure privacy and a modest level of exclusivity throughout the camp. Each tent sits on a platform, with views over the Savuti Channel. The tents are large and spacious with ensuite facilities and views from your deck.
In the guest areas, there is a comfortable and intimate lounge, bar and dining area, all overlooking the Savuti Channel.
The activities on offer are morning and afternoon game drives through the park and along the fringes of the Channel and Marsh. The game-viewing vehicles are open to facilitate gamewatching and photography, and your guide will delight in showing you the beauty and diversity of Savuti’s natural wonders. This area offers superb gameviewing and birding in the open areas of Savuti within Chobe National Park.
