Depart Victoria Falls and head to the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. Savuti Camp has seven rooms and is situated in an isolated part of the Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel in northern Botswana. In 2008, the formerly dry Savute Channel once more became a deep, clear waterway harboring hippo and aquatic life with myriad varieties of water birds. Wildlife, from plains game to a plethora of predators, has had to adapt to this new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it has brought with it.
With two-thirds of the Savute Channel located in the concession, you’ll have private and exclusive access to the abundant game through day and night game drives, nature walks, and several well-positioned hides for safe, up-close animal viewing.
Game concentrations here are high, particularly in the winter dry season (June - October), and apart from abundant plains game, species such as roan and sable antelope, southern giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena, black-backed jackal and packs of wild dog may also be encountered. In May through September, this area can also be excellent for the sought-after aardvark and aardwolf, which are big ticks on anyone's mammal list! Overnight three nights at Savuti Camp or Duma Tau.
