Overview

The Savute and Linyanti area is situated to the north of the Okavango Delta and also borders on the Chobe National Park. This remote area is also the site of the annual zebra migration and consists of swamp and grasslands reminiscent of the Serengeti and vast tracts of sandy plains. There are excellent lodge options to choose from in the Savute and Linyanti and some of these also include mobile camps. 

During the dry winter months the Linyanti area is highly populated with animals, in particular elephants. You should experience excellent game viewing during this time as it is also the time where larger herds of zebra spend their time. The Linyanti and Savute area is also known for its high population of Lion so keep an eye out for this unique predator!

Savuti Camp

Savute & Linyanti, Botswana
  • TypeSafari Lodge

Savuti Camp is situated in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel, famous as a sporadic and unusual watercourse. Between 1980 and 2008 it stopped flowing altogether, creating a ribbon of grassland. Surprisingly, the Channel began to flow once more, becoming a deep, clear waterway harbouring hippo and aquatic life while wildlife had to adapt to a new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it brought with it.
