Savuti Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

Savuti Camp is a Classic Camp

Experience “the Vanishing River” that reappeared!

Savuti Camp is situated in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel, famous for the fact that between 1980 and 2008 it stopped flowing altogether, creating an unusual ribbon of grassland. Surprisingly, the Channel began to flow once more, becoming a deep, clear waterway harbouring hippo and aquatic life while wildlife had to adapt to a new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it brought with it.

This intimate camp's en-suite accommodation is in seven large walk-in tents that are raised off the ground and face onto the Channel. From the camp's thatched dining area, a small pool and large viewing area with fire pit extend outwards on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful view of the water and its wildlife.

Highlights

  • Savuti Camp has front row seats to watch all the drama that unfolds on the Channel
  • The Savute area harbours one of the densest dry-season concentrations of elephant in Africa
  • With two-thirds of the Savute Channel located in the concession, guests have exclusive access to abundant game and geological marvels

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ The design is truly like a bush camp. The rooms are still nicely decorated, clean and spacious. They have a small patio with a gorgeous view on the water where a hippo family is at home. ”
