Truly at the interior of Botswana’s Chobe National Park, Savuti boasts most of the Chobe species, except for water-loving antelope. It is best known for its predators, particularly lion, cheetah and hyena, of which there are large resident populations. When the Savuti Channel is flowing, huge herds of buffalo and plains antelope gather and the region has been called the ‘Serengeti of Southern Africa’.
Savuti’s large public campsite is extremely popular and makes an excellent base from which to explore the nearby channel and surrounding plains. There are also more upmarket options if you prefer to take a break from your vehicle.
Lodge and campsite bookings can be difficult during high season (June to October) and to avoid disappointment it’s best to make your reservation as much as a year in advance. To access the area you’ll need a sturdy 4×4 as all the region’s twisting tracks are either thick sand or (during the summer rains) mud.
