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 our other two camps celebrate
water and lush vegetation, Savute is an objective lesson in aridity.
Rain is rare and water is precious. You find yourself in harmony with
a unique timeless place, removed from city life. In Savute, you realise
that precious little has changed on these dry plains since time began.
And the realisation 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, Savute Elephant Camp offers a spectacular base to explore
the area. With a bird's eye view of the adjacent water hole, just
metres away from the camp's main building, the impressions created
atSavute will last forever.
The 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 rare rock paintings drawn by the early
San Bushmen, who once inhabited the region.

and walking, however game viewing activities are offered in the morning

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 dining experience
in the "Boma" or "place of eating" where guests
can enjoy a traditional alfresco dining experience while being enter
tained by our members of staff.
