For an authentic safari experience, Savute Under Canvas is a semi-mobile tented camp positioned in exclusive campsites in the Savute corner of Chobe National Park.
For a truly Bedouin experience, the camp consists of five canvas safari tents booked on a daily basis that move every five days or so tracking the herds or exploring the various habitats. Each tent has a double bed that can convert to twin as well as an en-suite bathroom with a separate toilet and steaming hot bucket shower. In front of the tent, a shaded overhang and comfortable chairs are the perfect spot to sit and watch the abundant wildlife.
The camp takes advantage of the wild and beautiful Savute Channel of Chobe National Park. The mysterious channel once dried up only to flow again thirty years later. Now with the Channel flowing again in recent years, the region has undergone a startling transformation, reverting to its natural lush and marshy state. Sizable numbers of elephants are invariably present. The large lion prides have split up into smaller family groups, thus allowing a greater variety of predators to flourish in the area. The expansive grasslands supported by the channel sustain ever-growing herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, tsessebe, kudu, and other antelope species.
