Savuti Camp


Savuti views

Savuti Camp’s home is the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, including 47 private kilometres of the renowned Savuti Channel. An unpredictable overflow from the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, its waters and forests attract an incredible density of wildlife.

It has six large, raised en-suite tents, all with front-row views of the channel, along with an expansive thatched dining and common area largely open to the bush. It's all about immersion into nature, with a small pool for refreshment, a firepit for evening stories and wildlife hide for elephant encounters.

Exploration awaits at every turn. Sleep out on a star bed near a romantic lagoon, enjoy seasonal boating, guided walks and day and night game drives to see the area’s famous diversity of species.

    Game drives

    Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area. Both plains game and predators thrive along the Savuti Channel with enormous seasonal concentrations of elephants. A whole new safari experience begins after dark. Look out for nocturnal animals including lesser bushbabies, spring hares, aardwolf, servals, large spotted genets, and if you are extremely lucky, perhaps even pangolin...

    Wildlife hide

    This hide is the perfect place to spend your afternoon siesta hours. Elephants are often the star attraction here – either big elephant feet will obstruct your view, or watch out for the sprays of water propelled from their trunks!


The camp works closely with local authorities to ensure the conservation of wildlife in the area. It supports dedicated conservation and research focused on species on the IUCN Red List such as the African wild dog, elephant, lion and roan antelope.


Waste water (sewage and grey water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment. In order to reduce use of bottled water, reverse osmosis filtration is done on site to provide guests with high-quality drinking water. Like all Wilderness camps, this camp is managed and monitored against very strict in-house environmental standards, so only approved eco-friendly detergents and chemicals are used.
