Savute Under Canvas offers an authentic mobile-camping experience, without forgoing many of the comforts of a semi-permanent tented camp. Located in the interesting Savuti area, with it’s wide open marsh, rocky hills, and woodlands, you can expect good game viewing here with large numbers or elephant and good predator sightings in particular.

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 are typically excellent, run by an experienced and hospitable team. It's more economical than many of Botswana's permanent safari camps, particularly during the peak season from June to October. You can expect good game viewing, with a high concentration of wildlife at that time in particular. Conversely, national park restrictions preclude night drives, guided walks and off-roading, and you can get a little crowding of vehicles at noteworthy sightings. However we think Savute Under Canvas is a terrific option for those wanting something a bit different from Botswana's luxury and permanent accommodation – we loved it!
