Savute was phenomenal

Everything was great here! Our chef (Thebe) really bent over backwards to prepare gluten-free meals for us. They were delicious. I forgot one item in our tent and it magically appeared at the airstrip just before our flight came as well. Just shows how well organized and well run &Beyond is!

The game drives were great too. Saw several leopards, a large pride of lions and tons of other game all around. We were at Savute in June so it was quite cold, particularly the few days we were there. They provided blankets but those weren't windproof but the warm water bottles helped a lot! Bring layers!

Tons of animals

This camp was my favorite of the 3 that I stayed in during this trip. The accommodations were excellent for a tent and the staff was very attentive.

After every afternoon game drive, there was a hot bucket shower waiting for me without having to request one. The food was very good too. Although there was only one activity option in this camp (game drive) and limitations restricting viewings to the main roads (park rules) I offered the best game viewing of the 3 camps. I saw about 70% of my animals here.

Our guide (Sam) was fantastic and extremely knowledgable. I would highly recommend this camp.

Savute Under Canvas review

Savute under Canvas is a wonderful camp of &Beyond, which is moved every 6 days. It thus has a great bush feeling, even though it does not lack comfort and exquisite cuisine! The meals prepared by BK were amazing every day!

Samuel our guide created a very relaxed safari experience. Wildlife was very good, we even saw a klipspringer and a pack of wilddogs! It should be considered, however, that the camp is situated in the national park and therefore offroading and night drives are not allowed and (compared to the private concessions) quite a number of other cars is driving in the area.

Visiting the ancient rock paintings at sunrise while listening to the call of the giant eagle owl was stunning...

We'll definitely try one of the other &Beyond "Under Canvas"-camps on our next safari holiday.

Savute Under Canvas review

I really enjoyed staying with &Beyond again. They are really good in trying to make you feel like a princess, which they always manage to do.

The camp staff was wonderful (and lots of fun too), the guide KD very knowledgable and eager to share his knowledge patiently. And the food - considering the circumstances - was very good. Together with Kwando Lagoon I liked the people and atmosphere here most. The camp was very intimate, with only 4 tents. As the camp has to move every 6 days the tents and the camp as a whole is a bit more simple than the one I know in the Serengeti, but that is alright. I think camping in the bush in a tent gives an additional trill.

The area is really beautiful and pretty now the water has returned to the channel and the marsh. Lots of animals are staying around now or returning (pelicans!). It absolutely made up for the fact that this is a NP and not a concession (and therefore no off road driving allowed). I am very glad I decided to go here. And I am still a big fan of &Beyond.....
