Nestled in a remote section of Chobe National Park, Savuti provides a dynamic game viewing experience
Savuti is the huge area sprawling across the western side of Chobe National Park. It’s comprised of grassland and savanna habitats that attract astounding concentrations of wildlife. It is renowned for its annual zebra migration and the associated predators that give chase, such as lions, hyena and cheetah. Savuti is also known for its elephant-hunting lions, a rather rare phenomenon and one that might be attributed to the notoriously large size of prides there. Elephants congregate in amazing numbers in the dry season.

More on Savuti holidays
Although there is a public national park campsite and several luxury lodges in Savuti, Botswana’s commitment to low impact tourism means that visitor numbers are kept low. Guests can, therefore, expect an exclusive experience and will be able to enjoy Savuti’s remoteness.
Access to Savuti is through charter flight or by driving through the park from the eastern Sedudu Gate near Kasane or the southern entrance, Mababe Gate.The Savuti area of Chobe National Park is home to the Savute Marsh, a huge floodplain atop an ancient lakebed fed by the erratic Savuti Channel. After being dry for nearly three decades, the channel unexpectedly began flowing again, filling the Savute Marsh. Tectonic activity is blamed for the unpredictable water dynamics. Fortunately, the new water source has drawn abundant wildlife to the area. Skeletons of drowned trees dot the landscapes, relics of an era when the marsh was dry.
