We pre-booked and stayed at Savuti campsite 2 nights late October. We were in campsite #1. What we liked:
right on the river
spacious-good levels of privacy
close to ablutions
tremendous game viewing in the area including lion, leopard, wild dog
What we didn't like:
ablutions were not all that clean
water difficult to get to, inside a concrete box. Had to get on hands and knees to turn on/off
trash bins were easily raided by animals. They have learned to pull back the top to get inside
The most expensive of all the Chobe/Moremi Campsites. Worked out to $100 a day. Botswana is expensive on self-drives but other campsites in the areas were closer to $58-$64 a day for a site.
Added bonus: they have a tuck shop that sells limited supplies, limited hours. Note: try to purchase earlier in the day. They ran out of ice and beer when we were there.
