Savute Under Canvas
Chobe National Park, Botswana - Adventure 3
Savute is a remote and wild corner of the Chobe National Park in Botswana. This is an area of open savanna grassland through which a seasonal river used to spill out into a marsh. Today the channel and marsh are usually dry except after heavy rains, but several artificial waterholes offer breathtaking wildlife viewing. Sizeable numbers of elephant bulls are invariably present at Savute and close encounters with these great pachyderms are commonplace. In the wet season, large herds of zebra and tsessebe feed on the Savute plains. It is not uncommon to catch sight of leopard, cheetah and African wild dog, and Savute also supports the greatest concentration of the king of all beasts - the lion.
