(6 raised tents)
Savuti Camp (GPS: SAVUTI) stands beside the Savuti Channel, about 42km due west of the Savuti Marsh – the area that's always been commonly known as 'Savuti' within the Chobe National Park. It's about 13km as the eagle flies, from Zibadianja Lagoon and the rickety wooden bridge which spans the start of the Savuti Channel (GPS: SAVBRI).
The camp has five Meru-style tents raised up on individual wooden decks. All have en-suite showers, toilets and wash basins with hot and cold water. Three of the rooms have inside bathrooms, whilst the other two are open to the skies with views beyond.
Each has a small veranda, with everything under the cool shade of a large canvas roof. The camp has a separate dining room and bar/lounge area under a thatched roof, and a small plunge pool.
Activities here concentrate on 4WD game drives, by day and night, although walks are also possible. There are several elevated hides to visit, and the waterhole in front of the camp is the only source of water in the dry season for miles around. Hence the camp has a justified reputation for lion and elephant. What's less well known is the channel's apparently high concentration of serval, which appear with surprising regularity on the night drives here.
Note that the camp is highly seasonal, with the channel flushing a verdant green with the first rains, but subsequently becoming quite arid and harsh towards the end of the dry season in October/November.
