Camp Savuti

Chobe National Park

Days 1 - 2: Chobe National Park

Camp Savuti Location Map

Camp Savuti is located in the heart of the Chobe National Park, on the Savuti Channel. The emphasis of this camp is its natural appeal, and eco-friendly ethos, while maintaining a serene level of luxury. 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.

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.

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 game-watching and photography, and your guide will delight in showing you the beauty and diversity of Savuti’s natural wonders.

Camp Savuti is a small, intimate camp of 5 en-suite Meru-style tents accommodating a maximum of 10 guests in comfort and style. The tents have been positioned to ensure privacy and peace for guests when in their rooms. Each tent sits on a raised wooden deckand has a private veranda facing the landscape beyond.

Other facilities at Camp Savuti include the dining and bar area, as well as small deck located next to the channel, a perfect venue to unwind. There is a library, which guests can make use of if they like. The bar and boma facilities are available for convivial drinks around a fire.
