Savuti Camp is situated in the private 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. The Linyanti has diverse and prolific wildlife, but is most noted for its very large elephant population which can reach enormous densities during the dry winter months
Savuti Camp has front row seats to watch all the drama that unfolds on the Channel
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, guests have exclusive access to abundant game and geological marvels

Itinerary in Brief
Tailor made itineraries can be made to suit weather conditions and
your preferences. If you have any questions on any activities or
programs, just ask one of our consultants.
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. Outdoor activities for guests include:
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 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!
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.
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 with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
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.
Departs - Daily
Savuti Camp is situated in the private 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.
camp's thatched dining area, a small pool and large viewing area with
fire pit extend outwards on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful
view of the water and its wildlife.
