Savute is particularly well known for its high concentration of lion, as well as for its dramatic predator interactions. The Savute lions are famed for having adapted to hunting elephant, not generally considered common prey for these cats. A power struggle for the position of dominant predator has also been documented between the lions and the area’s large clans of hyena. The African wild dog, one of the continent’s most endangered carnivores, also thrives in the area.

Like the remainder of the Chobe National Park, Savute has large numbers of elephant, which are attracted to the many artificial water sources. During the drier season, elephant bulls dominate the water holes, while breeding herds may move to areas where water is more readily found.

Such herds rely upon their matriarch to lead them to the best feeding and water sites, with individuals seldom straying from each other and ready to come to the aid of a family member who is in trouble.

The region is also rich in antelope, with common species such as impala and kudu encountered alongside giants such as the eland. Waterbuck may be spotted in areas with thicker vegetation, and guests may be lucky enough to catch sight of the aristocratic line of the roan and the sable.

Secluded camp-sites in the wildlife haven of Savute provide a base for up close and personal adventure and discovery.
Carefully positioned as close as possible to the resident game, enjoy the simplicity of camping in one of the top wildlife areas in the world.

Camps move to a different site every five or six days. This is a true African experience, with camp-sites in remote areas where guests can expect to see few other people or vehicles.
