Classic Chobe and Savute Safari Tour
Classic Fly-in Chobe & Savute Safari Experience
Our 5-day Classic Fly-in Chobe and Savute Safari package allow you to explore the famous Savute region. The Savuti River floods and dries up seemingly on a whim. However, it is actually due to movements in the Earth's surface. For most of the last century, this area was dry as the river did not flow, now that the river is flowing it is lush once more. Come and experience the magnificent wildlife of the Savute region.
As part of this Botswana tour you can explore the area while on exciting game drives, walking safaris and on trips in a traditional boat called a mokoro. The region is renowned for its incredible game viewing, and you will see large herds of plains game. The region is known for groups of lonesome Bull Elephants and a pride of Lions that used to hunt Elephants.
You'll then move on to the renowned Chobe region. Here you'll explore the floodplains along the Chobe River and see the biggest herds of Elephants in the world, as well as Giraffe and rarer animals such as Sable and Puku. This area is also excellent for birding enthusiasts, and in the winter months, you can see Carmine beaters, Spoonbills and many species of waterfowl. This safari is a great extension of a tour to Victoria Falls.
