Can not get Trip Advisor to allow reviews of the campsite so its always mixed in with Camp Savuti which has fixed tents. They looked very nice. We however were self driving.
The campsite and the whole surrounding Savute area has very deep sand. The deepest we experienced and we had even been to Central Khalari camping at Deception Valley. Our campsite overlooked part of the beautiful Savute Channel which is flowing with crystal clear water. There are birds everywhere and some are quite tame and come up to you while you are camping.
There is a campsite called Paradise which is away on its own and people who had got it said it was wonderful. Request it if you can as its very private.
The ablution blocks are fairly clean and there was hot water. Water on the pitch was helpful and the staff were very friendly. The little shop for a cold beer was very welcome. There were some big groups while we were there but everyone was there to enjoy the peace and quiet so there were not problems with noise.
Game drives were out towards the marsh and over the bridge allong the Savute Channel. We were lucky enough to see a large pride of lions on that side and groups of up to 10 giraffe. Elephants were everywhere and enjoyed crossing the channel, coming into our campsite and standing near our vehicle eating the trees. We had to wait an hour on one ocassion before we could leave to have a shower.
The last few kms into camp is very difficult as the sand is so deep there. Prior to that the road from North Gate was much better than we expected and after we left for Kasane the driving was fine and we arrived in Kasane much earlier in the day than we thought we would.
