Experience the contrasts of Botswana's wilderness on this fascinating safari into the famous Savuti region of the Chobe National Park. Enjoy exciting game drives and bush walks led by knowledgeable guides, who will help you track down the wildlife of the region such as the Savuti Lions, and lone bull Elephants.
The Savute is famous for its river that suddenly stops flowing due to shifts in the Earth's crust. From 2008 the river has flowed which has made the desert landscape lush once more. You should see several prides of Lion, Black-backed Jackal, Bat-eared Foxes, Tsessebe, Kudu, Impala, Giraffe and Ostriches on your game drives. During the summer months thousands of Zebra and other antelope species migrate to the area offering a feast for the local predators.
You can also set off on an expedition to the Gubatsa Hills which are the site of ancient San rock paintings. This rock art is thousands of years old and depicts the San's cultural beliefs and interaction with the local animals. This is also a good place to try and see Leopard and small Klipspringer antelope.
On the first morning of your 3 day Classic Fly-in Savute Safari you will take a flight from Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport to Maun. Your Botswana tour starts with a light aircraft flight from Maun to the Savute airstrip. After your arrival you will be welcomed, enjoy refreshments and have some time to relax, before heading out on your afternoon game drive to explore the area and see what game you come across.
You'll return to the safari lodge for refreshing sundowners before savouring a delicious bush dinner out on the deck. Tonight you'll sleep in luxurious tented suites that overlook the Savute Channel.
