Savuti Game Reserve is a region within the heart and southern part of Chobe National Park, a place of enchantment, beauty and one of the greatest concentrations of animals in Southern Africa. Savuti offers a memorable wild adventure. If you are a keen photographer this is the best area for cats including lions, cheetah, leopard, wild dogs and hyena. Discover this area on morning and afternoon game drives.

Head northwards to the Chobe River where your game drives will meander along the banks of the river, followed by the call of the majestic African fish eagle. The Chobe River floodplain is an amazing game viewing area where water attracts large herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra and other herbivores. Due to the proliferation of prey, predators are likely to be close at hand. Sunsets in this region are always spectacular and allow for amazing photographic opportunities.

Distance: Savuti – Chobe River: 170km, 5 hrs

Overnight: Camping in private designated campsite in tents with en-suite bush ablutions (B, L, D)

Your professional guide will help to track and sport animal for your photography. This area is highly dominated by  lions, leopard, wild dogs, elephant, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, impalas, buffalo and different bird species. Have siesta time at camp before an afternoon game drive which concludes the activities of the day.
