Savute Under Canvas

The perfect luxury Savuti safari holiday

Famous as the stage upon which lion prides compete with hyena clans for food and territory

Savuti has long been the destination of choice for safari aficionados. A remote area of Chobe National Park, it has earned its international reputation for raw, dramatic game viewing thanks to its open landscapes, abundant wildlife and full cast of predators.

Usually accessed by air, Savuti - also spelled Savute - nicely complements Botswana's other iconic destinations, namely the Chobe River and sprawling Okavango Delta wetlands. The open woodlands of Savuti provide habitat for large antelope and buffalo herds, preyed on by big cats and wild dogs, while permanent waterholes ensure elephants remain in here all year round.

But it's the clear waters of the Savuti Channel, now flowing again after nearly 30 years, that makes a tailor made Savuti safari holiday so rewarding. Its banks crowded with animals and birds, the river winds its way south from the Linyanti Swamps to flood the famous Savuti Marsh, a landscape of ghostly dead trees now teeming with wildlife.

Game viewing is excellent throughout the year but the dry winter season is the best time to visit Savuti for the most comfortable experience: the climate is dry and mild though bitterly cold at night from May to August. September and October see Savuti at its hottest and driest but game drives during this time often result in spectacular sightings.
