Savuti Safari

Savuti lodges

Browse our recommended Camps

There are only a handful of Savuti lodges, scattered discreetly throughout the area. Most are small and intimate camps – ideal for honeymoons and romantic travel – while others offer a more rustic, under-canvas experience. Several are extremely luxurious.

Location is important: some Savuti lodges lie on the now-flowing Savuti Channel, attracting wildlife throughout the day and especially in the dry season. Some Savuti lodges are set near the fabled Savuti Marsh; others lie some distance away. All lodges specialise in morning and afternoon game drives with expert guides. There are also rock paintings to see as well as chances to enjoy amazing bird watching.

What To Do

Activities to Look Forward to

1. Track Big Cats

Welcome to Predator Country: Savuti’s lions, made famous by their eternal battles with spotted hyenas, take centre stage but this region is famous for leopard & cheetah too.

2. Sit with Old Tuskers

Most often encountered near water, the giant bull elephants of Savuti are generally calm & tolerant of our presence, making for amazing up-close photography.

3. Watch the Migration

Travel in early or late summer & you’ll witness Botswana’s zebra migration. The stripy herds pass through on their way to remote grazing lands – Savuti’s big cats, hyenas & wild dogs are waiting for them.

4. View Rock Art

San Bushmen hunters left enigmatic paintings on the isolated Ghoha Hills that stand out on the flat Savuti savannah; local guides lead you to the best sites.

5. Go Bird Watching

An amazing birding destination in general & always great for raptors, it’s during the summer months that Savuti explodes with colour & noise as migrant species such as carmine bee-eaters arrive.

6. Expect the Unexpected

Home to some of Botswana’s most rewarding game viewing, Savuti is an ecological crossover zone with savannah & desert animals, many predators & a reputation for unusual & rare sightings.
