Savuti Camp is set in remote part of the private Linyanti Concession, which lies along the Savute Channel. As two-thirds of the Savute Channel is located in the concession, you have exclusive access to the abundant game and natural wonders of this area.
Savuti Camp is small and intimate, and accommodation is in 7 large walk-in, en suite tents that are raised off the ground and face the Savute Channel itself. From the camp's thatched dining area, a plunge pool and large viewing area with fire pit extend outwards on raised wooden decks, which provide wonderful views of the Savute Channel and allow for some excellent wildlife sightings.
Whilst at Savuti Camp, you get to explore the Channel and its environs on extensive day and night game drives, nature
walks with a guide (on request). In addition there are a number of well-positioned hides for safe, up-close animal viewing.
Game concentrations here are high, particularly in the winter dry season, and apart from abundant plains game, species such as roan and sable antelope, southern giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyaena, black-backed jackal and wild dog may also be encountered. In winter, this area can also be excellent for the sought-after aardvark and aardwolf, which are big ticks on anyone's mammal lists!
This area is also known for its great number of elephants, indeed at times the Linyanti must have several thousand
elephants roaming around. This phenomenon is one of the main attractions for travellers to northern Botswana, but the area is also important in holding good numbers of predators, such as the endangered wild dog, as well as lion, cheetah and spotted hyaena. The roan antelope found in the area can provide an equal thrill however, as can the high concentration of birds of prey, seasonal zebra congregations and the cathedral-like woodland of mature mopane trees.
In addition to roan antelope other plains game includes red lechwe, Burchell's zebra, blue wildebeest, impala, common
waterbuck, sable, eland, southern giraffe, chacma baboon, vervet monkey, warthog, hippo and Cape buffalo. Nocturnal
species often seen are lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and if you are extremely lucky the elusive pangolin!
