Savute lies in a remote and grassy area of the famous Chobe National Park. The Savute Channel is the main feature of the area, flowing and drying up seemingly unrelated to rainfall. After drying up for almost 30 years, it recently started flowing again, transforming the area from dry and desert-like, into its natural lush and marshy state.
