Wilderness Safaris Savuti Camp

Savuti Channel, Linyanti Reserve, Botswana
Standing on the raised wooden deck of Savuti, one is able to marvel at the phenomenon of nature at work. Just beneath this remote safari camp flows the enigmatic Savute Channel, until recently a dry grassland. In 2008, the waters returned and as a result game concentrations are particularly high in the dry winter season. A thatched main area and viewing deck take in the scene, while exploring the length of the Savute and its associated woodlands by boat or vehicle is a highlight here. • 7 tents (1 family) • day and night game drives • guided walks • boating • hides

Loved the 2 nights that I spent at Savuti Camp during an 8 day safari in Botswana with colleagues. It was the place that I felt most at one with nature and the elephant viewing from our deck was just incredible. It was also our favourite view of the trip to wake up to every morn

Dear amanda, Savuti Camp is situated in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel, famous as a sporadic and unusual watercourse. For many years the channel was dry, before the waters returned in 2008, attracting abundant game and transforming the area. As part of a natural cycle, the channel is dry once more, resulting in a rich feeding ground and savannah corridor between the surrounding mopane woodlands for both plains game and predators. We are delighted to read your kind words and hope you will all visit us again soon. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

We (4 adults) stayed 2 nights at the Savuti Camp next to the Savuti Channel. The main building with dining and several lounge areas is an open wooden structure with reed grass cover and a spacious porch deck right on top of the water. The location at the outer side of a wide elbo

My husband and I spent three nights at this wonderful camp. Not knowing that October is the hottest month in Botswana, we ended up being the only guests the first two nights we were there and felt like we were being treated like a king and queen. That's when one of the managers

Our stay with Savuti was full of many special moments but it can all be summed up in a recap of our first four hours at the camp.

We landed at Savuti (coming from Kwetsani) at around 4:30pm—right around the time one sets out for the “evening drive”. Assuming we had missed the P

Dear James K, We are thrilled to read about your amazing sightings, and all that just as you arrived - we hope the rest of your stay was just as action packed. 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. Other game concentrations are also high, and apart from abundant plains game, species such as roan and sable antelope, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyaena, black-backed jackal and wild dog may also be encountered. This area can also be excellent for the rarely-seen aardvark and aardwolf. Birding is spectacular. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

Came here for three days after Seba. I feel that mid to late June is the perfect time to go to this area as the weather is very good and the game viewing is excellent. Another unbelievable experience.
Just little bit more upscale than Seba but similar. Classic Camp with a defini

Hello, Thank you for your enquiry, unfortunately you have been directed to the wrong page. Wilderness Safaris Savuti Camp is a game lodge whereas the one i believe you are looking for Camp Savuti, is the camping site. Sorry about the confusion, Wilderness Safaris

Are ther hair dryers?
Hello Leslie, Due to our environmental and sustainability efforts our camps are powered by Solar panels or generators and we are unfortunately unable to supply or allow hair dryers to be used as this would drain too much electricity. There are a couple of camps that are able to do so but you would need to contact your Travel Agent for a full list of these. Thank you for the question and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful Africa soon.

Does Savuti camp permits children under the age of 12 ? If yes, which of the wilderness-camps does not ?
Thank you Gloria for contacting us. Savuti Camp and all Wilderness Safaris Camps in Botswana accommodate children with the age restriction being 6 years and older. Several of our camps (Savuti included) even have family rooms available; Family accommodation is generally designed to sleep 2 adults and 2 children of 16 years and younger. This accommodation may have one shared bathroom and a smaller second bedroom or two separate rooms linked by a boardwalk or deck. To find out more detailed breakdown of which camps have family rooms we would advise you to contact your Travel Agent as they will have all this information as well as a full break down regarding our Child Policies. Including; Bookings with children 12 years and younger can only be confirmed if a private vehicle/guide are available and have been booked for activities. And there are no formal child care services in our camps and thus children must be under the care of their parent/s and/or guardian/s at all times. It is very important that you confirm all this with your agent before booking your trip. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you and your family in camp.
