Savuti was very gorgeous! Beautiful nature, but we didn't saw so many animals. Our guide told us that it's not allowed to leave the roads, but then we saw the jeeps of a camera crew from National Geografpic.

The game drives in Savute are amazing when the animals are concentrated for water. We were able to watch the Marsh lion pride hunting -- highlight of our entire trip.

The Savuti is a very special place. In the dry season the temperature can go up to 46C. But you will be amazed how the wildlife can survive overthere. Elephants, warthog, wild dogs, wildebeest,..... But the top is the Savuti lion pride! Enjoy !

One of our favorite stops on our 5 month trip. Bit rustic but absolutely nice place with a fantastic waterhole, u can't get closer... The bar staff could be more enthusiastic at work... but beer - if u get one- is still good ;-)

Unless you fly in it is a hard drive from either Maun or Kasane with a 4x4 but it is worth it. The Savuti channel is not flowing, but there are a couple of pumped water holes but the park is still full of everything. We have camped there a few times and you have elephants and hyenas wandering through... More
