Savute Under Canvas offers an authentic mobile-camping experience, without forgoing many of the comforts of a semi-permanent tented camp. The camp utilises a number of different private campsites in the Savuti area of Botswana’s Chobe National Park, moving every five days in accordance with national-park 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 are typically excellent, run by an experienced and hospitable team, and you can expect good game viewing, with the highest concentration of wildlife. It’s more economical than many of Botswana’s permanent safari camps, too, particularly during the peak season from June to October. Although national-park restrictions preclude night drives, guided walks and off-roading, and you can get crowding of vehicles at noteworthy sightings, 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!
