Savute Under Canvas is a luxury tented camp that moves between different private campsites near the watering holes of the Savuti Area within Choe National Park.

Savute Under Canvas is a luxury tented camp set up in secluded campsites near the watering holes of the Savute Area. The camp moves to a different site every five or six days, in keeping with the park regulations, whilst maintaining the high levels of comfort and service experienced at most Botswana camps.

The camp has six spacious ensuite safari tents which are furnished with double or twin beds, crisp bed linens, bedside tables, lamps and a canvas wardrobe. The ensuite bathroom sits behind a canvas doorway which is set up with a flush toilet, tin basin, water jug and bucket shower. At the front of each tent is a small shaded veranda with directors chairs where you can look out over the river.

The main area is an open-sided marque with a long table for dining, a small bar area, reference library and a campfire area. The food and service is always very good which is a credit to the very friendly team of guides and camp staff.

Activities at the camp are focused around twice daily game drives where you explore the lush banks of the Chobe River and beyond in an open safari vehicle accompanied by an armed guide and tracker. Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon/evening to avoid the heat of the day. The tracker will constantly search for any sign of animals, while the guide will share his vast knowledge of Botswana’s landscape and wildlife.

During the rainy season, Savute is home to the annual zebra migration, which peaks in January and February when the zebra and wildebeest congregate in vast numbers to graze on the sweeter grasses brought on by the rains. It is not uncommon to also catch sight of leopard, cheetah and African wild dog.

Savute also supports the greatest concentration of lion. Savute is also a famous battleground for lion and spotted hyena whose ongoing fight for dominance has been captured in the brilliant National Geographic documentary film Eternal Enemies filmed by Deryck and Beverly Joubert.
