Savuti Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

Savuti Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Savuti Camp

Due to our location on the Savute Channel and in the Linyanti Concession, Savuti has spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities. Game viewing tops the agenda here.


Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area where predators and elephant are often the highlight. Plains game and the diverse birdlife also offer fantastic sightings. The open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people, allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.


Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. These often include the lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and, if you are extremely lucky, the elusive pangolin!


Nature Walks

On request and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller details you miss when travelling by vehicle.


Hide and Star Bed

The Savuti hide is an elevated platform from which to view and photograph animals and birds. Sleep-outs are also possible here, as it is equipped with bed rolls, mosquito nets and a long-drop toilet to become a star bed.


Boat Excursions

Exploring the waters by boat can be undertaken in the morning, during midday, or as an afternoon activity. Note that boating is a seasonal activity, dependent on water levels.


Fishing

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.


Birding

With the Linyanti Concession being an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), birding is understandably outstanding at Savuti Camp, from slaty egret in the water to kori bustard in the dry areas.
