Activities at Savuti Camp
Wilderness Savuti – Birding
With the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve being an internationally recognised Important Bird Area (IBA), birding is understandably outstanding at Wilderness Savuti, from slaty egret in the water to kori bustard in the dry areas.
Wilderness Savuti – Boating *
Exploring the waters by boat can be undertaken in the morning, during midday, or as an afternoon activity. Boating is a wonderful way of seeing large numbers of waterbirds, and wildlife, attracted to the river and seasonal pans.
* Water levels permitting.
Wilderness Savuti – Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area. Both plains game and predators thrive, and exploring the length of the Savuti Channel, and its associated woodlands is thus a highlight here. With its enormous seasonal concentrations of elephant, Wilderness Savuti provides essential support to research projects and conservation initiatives relating to this species, as well as others.
Wilderness Savuti – Guided Nature Walks *
Explore on foot, and observe the many signs of the wild from tracks on the ground, to the sounds of the wilderness around you.
* Weather permitting and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide.
Wilderness Savuti – Night Drives
A whole new safari experience begins after dark. Look out for nocturnal animals including lesser bushbabies, spring hares, aardwolf, servals, large spotted genets, and if you are extremely lucky, perhaps even pangolin!
Wilderness Savuti – Savuti Star Bed
The Savuti Star Bed, overlooking the Savuti Channel and facing the Zibadianja Lagoon, to the west, is the perfect place from which to view and photograph animals, and birds. An authentic and unique way to sleep-out under a crystal-clear African sky, experiencing a thrilling perspective of the African bush at night, surrounded by nature from this elevated platform.
