Savuti Camp

Feefo logo


Situated on what was for almost 30 years a dry grassy plain in the southern part of the Linyanti Concession, Savuti Camp now finds itself on the banks of the now-flowing Savuti Channel. Always an area of great wildlife sightings, the presence of permanent water has tranformed the area of Savuti, also spelt Savute, into possibly one of the best game-viewing destinations in Southern Africa. Expect large numbers of elephant plus many species of antelope and classic African animals such as giraffe, buffalo and warthog.

The summer zebra migration passes through the area and the bird watching is fantastic but the ace up Savuti Bush Camp's sleeve is the abundance of predators: lion, spotted hyena, cheetah, leopard, wild dog and jackal are all commonly sighted. Activities at include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, close-up game viewing from hides, night drives and walks with an armed guide.

The Bush Buddy programme has been specially designed to appeal to guests from six to 17, with unique activities, gifts and even menus.

Standard Twin Tent

Each of the seven luxury en suite chalets at Savuti Bush Camp has been built on a raised wooden deck and features canvas walls and a high thatch roof. All rooms face the river and open onto a spacious wooden deck from which to watch both the river and wildlife pass by.

Family Tent

The Family Tent is a large double tent with a master bedroom and an adjoining bedroom with two single beds. Both open onto the large wooden deck overlooking the Savuti Channel. Enquire about spending a night out in the wilderness: a bed can be made up and dinner served in one of the hides for a spellbinding experience.


The camp’s main area is raised high on wooden stilts overlooking the channel and passing animals. The thatched dining area, bar and comfortable lounge area spills out onto a large, shady wooden deck with a small swimming pool.

There is also a safari shop for gifts for friends and family at home. Congregate around the campfire at night for a couple of drinks and the chance to swap stories of the day's best wildlife sightings.

As part of the Bush Buddy programme, a specially trained staff mentor can be assigned to guide guests aged from six to 17 through many educational and entertaining activities, like traditional basket weaving, sculpture from natural materials, tracking lessons and safe-and-secure bush walks.


Start the day with a selection of cereals, fruit and muffins before your morning safari activity and return mid-morning to a generous brunch buffet served in the dining area.

Enjoy a sweet and savoury afternoon tea before your late afternoon game drive and return after sunset for a delicious 3-course dinner enjoyed with the other guests in the raised dining area or on the wooden deck at the water’s edge.

Traveller Reviews

Savuti Camp

Beth Fleming

We spent 3 nights at Savuti camp. We had wonderful food, a great guide , We were lucky, and saw a leopard within 5 minutes of arriving. Kang, Kelly and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. Our front porch looked out over water and grassy fields where we could watch elephants graze. We even had two occasions where peaceful elephants grazed through the camp!

Gisele & Kim Bijok & Dredge

It was unbelievable.. The itinerary was great.. we got to see such variations. Kim and I would both agree that Savuti was our favourite camp. We did a full day safari there and the morning was quiet.. well quiet in terms of cats but after lunch we saw a leopard waiting at a warthog hole patiently, then we were on our way back to camp and stopped for a break and heard a lion call so we rushed over and it was a female with her two two month old cubs.

"Savuti is a nice camp and has good accommodation. The camp has great wildlife and the staff were all very nice."

Deborah Heystek

"The room at Savuti was easily the most spectacular of the three. There was no outdoor shower but a nice, large indoor one. The main areas of camp, the dining and lounge areas were also the most beautiful of the three camps."
