Savuti Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

Savuti Camp is a Classic Camp

Experience “the Vanishing River” that reappeared!

Savuti Camp is situated in a remote part of the 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 plunge 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 is played out on the water
  • 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, Wilderness guests have exclusive access to the abundant game and the natural and geological marvels
