4Cs Projects at Savuti Camp

Savuti Camp lives up to the Wilderness 4Cs concept – the four dimensions of Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture, providing support to numerous projects and initiatives in the Linyanti.


The Elephant Challenge

Perhaps the most topical issue for Botswana is its very large elephant population and the possible impact on vegetation and other animal species. As a result, Wilderness and the Wilderness Trust supported two MSc studies researching this challenge both logistically and financially.

Conservation Projects

Savuti works closely with local government bodies to ensure the conservation of wildlife in the area. It carries out dedicated conservation and research focused on species on the IUCN Red List such as the African wild dog, elephant, lion and roan antelope.

Reducing our Footprint

Savuti is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel-powered generator which charges a bank of batteries which in turn supplies the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this hybrid system, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. Waste water (sewage and grey water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment.
