Savuti Camp

Accommodation in Linyanti Wildlife Reserve

Enjoy an exclusive front-row seat to the wild wonders of the Savute Channel.

Situated in the pristine and remote Linyanti Concession, Savuti Camp is an intimate, luxurious boutique safari camp with just seven sumptuous thatched safari tents.

The family unit is raised off the ground and connects to the central thatched dining area, plunge pool and large viewing platform via wooden decks. A fire deck extending from the viewing area also provides exceptional views of the Channel and its abundant wildlife. Between game-viewing safari drives, relax at camp and gaze out at the innumerable elephant and other wildlife strolling past each day.

With its elevated position on the Savute Channel (a watercourse that flows sporadically, influenced by regional tectonic plate movements), the camp is brilliantly located for outstanding safari game viewing. In years when the channel is dry, the area becomes a corridor through the surrounding mopane woodlands and a rich feeding ground for both plains games and predators. When the waters return, the abundant game adapts to changing conditions and congregates around the wetlands.

The Linyanti has diverse and prolific wildlife, but is most noted for its very large elephant population, which can reach enormous densities during the dry winter months. Other game concentrations are also high; as well as abundant plains game, species such as roan and sable antelope, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena, black-backed jackal and wild dog may also be encountered during morning and afternoon game drives. Elephant and predator sightings are often a highlight, with expert guides revealing the area’s rich wildlife during game-viewing safaris in open 4×4 LandRovers. The Linyanti Concession is an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), and birding is understandably spectacular at Savuti Camp.

The sunken Ntshe Hide at Manchwe Pan, just 45 minutes’ from camp, offers thrilling game viewing that gets you so close you may find your view obstructed by thick elephant ankles. There is also a log-pile hide close to camp that allows you to get extraordinarily close to these African giants. Other special experiences at Savuti Camp are the star beds, elevated platforms offering an exciting way to sleep out in the wild under the crystal-clear African skies. Nature walks with a qualified, armed guide are a must-do for insight into the details that may escape you in a safari vehicle, while night drives with spotlights give you the chance to spot elusive nocturnal animals such as the lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet or even the rare pangolin. Depending on seasonal water levels, boat excursions offer rewarding wildlife and birding viewing.
