Savuti Camp Botswana

Set deep in the wilderness on the prosperous Savute Channel, Savuti Camp was surrounded by flowing water for the previous 7 years; however due to changing climatic conditions, the Savute Channel is reverting to a dry river bed. High concentrations of wildlife, especially during the dry months are congregating around the available waterholes.  Wilderness Safaris Savuti CampFacing a waterhole and raised off the ground, the camps seven large en-suite canvas-and-thatched rooms offer views that extend out over the flowing channel. Camp facilities include a thatched dining area, plunge pool and large viewing deck with fire pit. Wildlife viewing is particularly good for elephant and leopard. Savuti Camp is about 1hr 30 minutes drive from Duma Tau.
Activities include day and night game drives and walking safaris on request. Sit and wait hides are productive activities to get you close to the wildlife, especially elephants.
