Some of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa are found in the Savute (sometimes spelled Savuti) area. Situated in the famous Chobe National Park on the border of the Okavango Delta, Savute is best known for its channel, which mysteriously fills up and dries up periodically, seemingly unrelated to the rainfall. Savute supports the greatest concentration of the king of all beasts – the lion. The landscape of Savute is strikingly different from the lush Chobe riverfront, with an almost desert-like feeling. Spend two nights at &Beyond Savute Under Canvas. Accommodation is in a spacious tent, with attached bathroom that features a separate w.c. and an al fresco bucket shower (hot water delivered on request).
