Tented safari camp
Savuti Camp lies by the Savuti Channel in the Linyanti Reserve in northern Botswana. The seasonal ebb and flow of the Savuti Channel is one of Botswana’s mysteries. The channel was dry for some 30 years and began to flow again in 2008 and now flows on a seasonal basis but it’s impossible to predict how long or how far the water will flow – only nature knows. This area is renowned for its abundant elephants, which live alongside giraffe, roan and sable antelope. Lion, leopard and cheetah can all be seen here, plus spotted hyena and wild dog.
The camp’s central building is set at the edge of the water, on stilts to give a grand view of the surrounding landscape. To the front at one side is the firepit and deck, an enchanting place to sit before and after dinner, as the light changes, sharing stories with other travellers. Under the shelter of the thatched roof are the lounge and dining area, both adorned with local artwork and artefacts. There’s a great deal of space and the long dining table, which can comfortably seat all guests and camp managers, fits easily on the teak deck.
In the middle of day, when you’re resting after your early morning game drive, you’re free to make use of all the camp’s facilities. These include a deliciously cool plunge pool on a shaded deck where there are loungers, ideal for dozing.
Tents are arranged amongst the trees which afford shade and privacy. Inside they are roomy and light, with large mesh windows, mosquito netted beds, colourful local fabrics and matting on the wooden floors. There’s plenty of space for storing clothes and luggage without the room feeling at all cluttered. The en-suite bathroom includes a hand basin, a large shower and flush toilet. The veranda faces the Savuti Channel, and you can often see animals and birds from your own room.
Savuti Camp is an excellent, intimate camp in an excellent, private gameviewing region.
