The Savute region in the Chobe National Park is home to some of the greatest wildlife displays in Africa. The Savute is known for its mysterious vanishing river, the Savuti Channel. It is also famous for its predators, especially Lions and Hyenas.
In 2008, the Savuti river flowed after a 20 year dry spell. This has profound effects on wildlife behaviour. These changes are due to shifts in the Earth’s surface in the region.
Our Savute Safari Packages allow visitors to experience one of Africa’s most dynamic wilderness areas where you will stay in comfortable lodges. From a classic safari to a family break or a romantic weekend away you’re sure to find a Suvute Safari Package to suit you.
Our packages include exciting safari activities such as game drives led by guides who know the area intimately.
Savute Wildlife interaction is the main highlight of this area with large amounts of game passing through on annual migrations. On your Savute Safari you may see Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Buffalo, Elephant and of course the predators.
Savute is famous for its prides of Lion and clans of Spotted Hyena. Leopards are always plentiful around the granite hills. Now that the Savuti Channel is flowing once again the game densities are expected to be much higher.
There are many amazing Savute highlights with the 5 main features being the Magwikhwe Sand Ridge (where the Gubatsa Hills are found) an ancient shoreline of a super-lake that covered much of northern Botswana, the Mababe Depression - a flat, desolate plain, the Savute Marsh with its dead trees, the Rocky Outcrops and the enigmatic Savuti Channel.
