Savuti Under Canvas
Chobe National Park
Savuti Under canvas offers an adventurous mobile camping experience combined with luxury Meru styled safari tents in semi-permanent camps. The concept makes use of a number of different private campsites in the Savuti area of Chobe National Park.
Game viewing in this part of Chobe reaches it’s best during the months of June to October when the bush is dry and open. Wild Dogs, massive Lions, Giraffe, Tsessebe and Leopard are just a few of the species we saw during our stay.
Savuti Under Canvas comprises just five Meru style tents accommodating no more than ten guests. The tents are made of green canvas with mesh windows for a cool breeze and protects you from the mosquitoes at night. A small deck in front is shaded with two chairs and a small table.
Inside each tent is either a double bed or two singles with bedside tables and lamps. Other amenities like a luggage rack, shelving and dressing gowns adorn the tents. A canvas partition leads to the en suite bathroom with gravity fed toilets and a bucket shower to wash the dust off yourself.
Morning and afternoon game drives explore the many sandy tracks in this part of the Savuti area and Chobe National Park. Other mobile camp and lodge vehicles may be encountered on game drives during the peak seasons of June through to October.
During our game drives we saw a large pack of Wild Dogs, Lion, plenty of Elephant, Giraffe and many Impala. From December to march there is a mini migration of Zebra and Wildebeest. Birding in this marshy area is also very good.
