Wilderness Savuti

Wilderness Savuti is an intimate tented lodge built overlooking the Savuti Channel in the exclusive Linyanti Concession in the Greater Linyanti Region.

Wilderness Savuti is located in a great area for game viewing, with the Savuti Channel and Linyanti Swamps (to the north) attracting large herds of buffalo and elephant, as well as general game. The Greater Linyanti Region in general has long been known for its leopard, lion and wild dog populations and Wilderness Savuti is well placed to offer excellent predator viewing (cheetahs are harder to find these days due to higher water levels in the channel). The camp itself is very comfortable but maintains an authentic bush vibe, and for this reason we like the camp a great deal. The camp has always been well run and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Savuti is a quietly upmarket camp without trying to be too luxurious or overly sophisticated. The waterhole hide in front of camp is a great addition, and can produce excellent elephant sightings.
