Savute Under Canvas is a mobile tented camp that moves around the wildlife-rich plains of Botswana’s Savuti Region. Simple yet comfortable, this 5-tent camp delivers an authentic safari experience with days spent on action-packed game drives and nights swapping safari stories around a crackling fire.
Mornings start early with a dawn wakeup call of coffee or tea and home-baked biscuits delivered to your tent. Then it’s off on your first game drive, the excitement building as your guide seeks out fresh tracks of lion, leopard, hyena or the endangered wild dog. This region is well known for its frequent predator sightings and, like the rest of Chobe, its large herds of elephant too.
Returning to camp you’re served a hearty breakfast cooked over the open fire. The food at Savute Under Canvas is of a very high standard, and you’ll be amazed at the meals that are produced in these wild and remote surroundings. It’s plentiful too with snacks, breakfasts, lunches, afternoon tea, cocktails around the fire and dinners under the stars.
In the early afternoon relax with a good book or chilled glass of wine on your tent’s shaded verandah or make up for that early start with an afternoon nap, the soothing sound of birdsong filtering through the trees. As the heat starts to fade you set off on your second game drive of the day, a chance for more thrilling sightings and close-up big game encounters.
