Savute Elephant Camp
the heart of the Chobe National Park, sometimes referred to as the elephant
capital of the world, is the Savute - an area that personifies the eternal
contrast of Africa.
Where two camps celebrate water and lush vegetation, Savute is an objective
lesson in aridity. Rain is rare and water is precious. You will find yourself
in harmony with a unique timeless place, removed from city life.
Savute, you realize that previous little has changed on these dry plains since
time began. And the realization dawns that you are fortunate and privileged to
be in one of the last corners of the planet governed by nature.
Perched on the former banks of
the now dry Savute Channel, the camp offers a spectacular bird’s eye view of
elephant in their natural habitat, with adjacent water hole just meters away
from the camps main building, the impressions created at Savute will last
Savute is a dramatic area to see high concentrations of elephant and lions.
Prides up to 40 strong are not uncommon as are sighting of all the other major
predators; the endangered wild dog, leopard, cheetah and the hyena. Savute is
also renowned for its excellent birding during the summer months (December
through March), as well as being home to some very rate rock paintings drawn by
the early San Bushmen, who once inhabited the region.
As this camp is situated in the
Chobe National Park, park regulations prohibit night drives and walking, however
game viewing activities are offered in the morning and late afternoons in our
open safari game viewing vehicles. All the tents, public areas and swimming
pool overlook the adjacent water hole so it is not uncommon to see a wide
variety of birds and animals from the privacy of your own tent. Savute also
offers a "Boma" or "place of eating" where guests can enjoy a traditional
alfresco dining experience while being entertained by our members of staff.
12 twin-bedded luxury canvas tents, recently placed under thatch, that are
perfectly suited to the desert air feature lavishly appointed ensuite bathrooms
and dressing areas.
