Accommodation at Camp Savuti Botswana:

Guests at Camp Savuti will be accommodated in private and peaceful Meru-style tents.

There are 5 individual tents built on elevated wooden platforms offering some height for overlooking the channel.

Each unit has a private wooden veranda, complete with chairs for two; carpeted floors inside; twin or king-size beds with headboards and pure cotton linen; shelving space; a safe; and an ensuite bathroom with an outdoor, open-air shower.

The bathroom is separated from the main bedroom interior by a dividing canvas curtain that can be fastened back or pulled closed for privacy.

There is a flush toilet and indoor bath.

The accommodation is wonderfully comfortable and cosy for cooler weather, yet it can be open and airy for those ultra-hot months from September to December.

Guests can choose to rest and relax in the privacy of their rooms while watching games gathering at the channel. 

About Camp Savuti Botswana:

Camp Savuti is an intimate, tented safari camp in the Savuti Marsh area of the Chobe National Park. This traditional, understated camp is beautifully decorated with African-inspired woodwork, cattle skin rugs, and arts and crafts that give the camp an authentic feel.

5 Meru-style tents are raised on wooden decks with private verandas facing the landscape beyond.

The tents are set apart from each other and the main lodge, offering privacy and peace for guests in their rooms. The emphasis of this camp is its natural appeal, and eco-friendly ethos while maintaining a serene level of luxury.

The Savuti area is explored via game drive in 4×4 safari vehicles, which take guests up close to the exciting number of game species and predators that dwell in the Savuti region.

Bird watching and pure relaxation can be enjoyed from the deck, bar, or lounge.

Safari Experience at Camp Savuti Botswana:

Camp Savuti is all about its prime positioning on the Savuti Channel. It is an unfenced camp that receives regular wildlife visitors and offers a diverse landscape ideal for game viewing.

If you’re lucky you’ll notice elephants browsing the trees in camp, and birds flitting between branches, creating a game-viewing paradise right in front of camp.

The experience at Camp Savuti can be described as camping in style.

The tented suites are luxuriously adorned with carpeted floors, ample space, ensuite bathrooms, and private verandas, but the wood, canvas, and natural colours keep them in tune with the surroundings. Guests will feel relaxed and at ease with nothing but comfort and exclusivity in their Meru safari tents.

The Savuti landscape and ecology support a wide array of plant, bird, and animal life.

During the rainy summer months, the game flocks to the Savuti region.  

Daily Schedule at Camp Savuti Botswana:

Mornings at Camp Savuti begin with an early wakeup call and optional tea and coffee before heading out on a game drive.

During the winter months, the Savuti is very dry, and the game species tend to stick to the remaining water sources, making it easier to spot them.

After the first game drive, guests will be served breakfast at the lodge and spend midday relaxing on the deck, in the lounge, at the bar, or in their rooms.

Guests eat lunch at the lodge overlooking the Savuti Channel and then embark on their second game drive in the late afternoon.

There will be a drinks stop during the evening game drive when guests can enjoy a refreshment (pre-ordered and packed by the guide) and spend a quiet moment in the Savuti Marshland watching the sun go down.

After the game drive, dinner is served and then guests have to freedom to go to bed or head to the bar.

Getting to Camp Savuti Botswana:

Travelling to Camp Savuti involves a light air transfer from Maun or Kasane (depending on guests’ itinerary) to the Savuti airstrip in Chobe National Park.

It is an approximate 40-minute flight from either of the towns and the view from the aircraft over the beautiful Chobe becomes a part of the experience.

Upon arrival at the Savuti airstrip, guests will be met by a representative from Camp Savuti and driven on the last 20–40-minute journey to the camp.

This road transfer could be considered more of a game drive, as it traverses through the Chobe National Park and there is a likely chance of spotting any number of animals before even arriving at camp. 

Location of Camp Savuti Botswana:

The Savuti is a 5000 sq km region in the heart of the Chobe National Park that is secretly located away from the peak season crowds.

It is the remote home ground of Camp Savuti, positioned on the banks of the Savuti Channel overlooking the famous Savuti Marsh.

The Savuti has a unique geography and a notorious history of flooding and drying up independently. The marsh and the channels are currently dry. 

Botswana is a highly sought-after location for safari lovers, and its diverse and beautiful ecology appeals to veterans and newbies alike.

The seasons change the appearance of certain landscapes and bring different animals into view.

The Savuti Channel used to flow as a hippo-filled river until 1982 when the water dried up and the riverbed remained dry and dormant for 30 years.

We cannot predict when the next flood will be, but we do know that the region has a fascinating geography.
