The opportunities to view game and the astonishing birdlife is unsurpassed. Savute Elephant Camp's rangers are almost telepathic in their ability to find game. They will point to what appears to be an empty horizon and from the emptiness, magnificent creatures will appear, as if conjured by some unearthly magic.
As this camp is situated in the Chobe National Park, regulations prohibit night drives and walking. However in the early mornings and afternoons, your professional ranger will guide your 4x4 drive safari vehicle within close viewing range of grazing African herds of Impala, Tsessebe, Giraffe and Zebra as well as the powerful predators: Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. You are also likely to see plenty of Savute Wildebeest, Warthog, Kudu, Black-Backed Jackals, Steenbok, Bat-eared Foxes, Vultures, Hornbills and Eagles.

In their trail are the opportunistic predators such as Lions and Hyenas. It is truly a spectacle to behold. More than anywhere else, here at Savute you sense the essence of Africa.
