Uniquely situated on the banks of northern Botswana’s lush Savuti Channel, the Savuti Bush Camp (also called Savute) is an exceptional location for an African safari, boasting superb opportunities for game viewing. Once a stretch of dry grassland, water returned here in 2008 and currently plays host to a rich and vast abundance of wildlife. A raised walkway links a comfortable thatched lounge and pub with seven spacious en suite bedrooms. Visitors in need of a truly African experience will not be disappointed, with thatched roofing and wooden walkways being part and parcel of the earthy experience here – which reflects the natural surroundings effortlessly.
In front of the seven large walk-in tents, a shaded wooden deck forms an excellent vantage point from where game can be spotted drinking water or wandering about the camp. It also serves as a great platform for bird watching.
Travellers to this premium safari destination can choose from activities ranging from game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, night drives, as well as occasional nature walks lead by skilled and informed guides. Guided canoe excursions also create unique game and bird watching opportunities.
Wildlife to be seen near the Savuti Bush Camp includes a thriving elephant population as well as antelope, zebra, giraffe, warthog, and hippo. Rarely seen mammals such as the aardvark and aardwolf have also been spotted in the vicinity of this camp.
Another memorable element of Savuti Bush Camp is the carefully situated hides for up-close yet safe game viewing and on a hot day, guests can unwind and cool off in the plunge pool on the spacious deck overlooking the channel. Spectacular sunsets and bright starlit skies are inherent to this beautiful part of Africa and in the evenings, a crackling fire on the deck and intimate meals provide the perfect ending to a day spent in nature.
Renowned for its friendly staff, comfort and superior game viewing opportunities – as well as its unique front-row location on the Savuti Channel – Savuti Bush Camp is the perfect destination for an unforgettable safari.
