Savute Under Canvas
Akin to its counterpart in Chobe, Savute Under Canvas offers an authentic mobile-camping experience, without forgoing many of the comforts of a semi-permanent tented camp. Situated in the Savuti area of Chobe National Park, the camp moves every five days between private campsites in the region (as per national park mobile-camping regulations).
Our view of Savute Under Canvas
Savute Under Canvas suits those seeking an adventurous, yet very comfortable, mobile-camping experience. The service, food and guiding is typically excellent, run by an experienced and hospitable team. It’s a more economical option to many of Botswana’s permanent safari camps, particularly during the peak season from June to October. You can expect good game viewing, with the highest concentration of wildlife between April and November. The potential drawbacks are the national park restrictions (no night drives, guided walks or off-roading) and crowding of vehicles at noteworthy sightings, more so during the busy season. If you’re visiting Savuti in combination with private reserves elsewhere in Botswana, then we recommend that you start with the national park if possible, before moving on to the more remote wildlife areas where you will encounter fewer visitors.
