Savute Elephant Camp is a luxury safari camp located in the heart of the Chobe National Park, sometimes referred to as the elephant capital of the world, in an area called Savuti - an area that personifies the eternal contrast of Africa.

Perched on the former banks of the now dry Savuti Channel, Savute Elephant Camp offers a spectacular birds eye view of elephant in their natural habitat, with an adjacent water hole just metres away from the camps main building, the impressions created at Savute will last forever.

Savute Elephant Camp offers an oasis type setting in complete luxury. All luxury tents are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.

The tent interiors are luxuriously appointed with such comforts as an en-suite bathroom, private fully stocked mini bar, four poster bed complete with mosquito netting, as well as a discreet air conditioning. The large private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock, ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy.

The 12 twin-bedded luxury canvas tents at Savute Elephant Camp are perfectly suited to the desert air feature lavishly appointed ensuite bathrooms and dressing areas.

A dining experience second to none in a traditional Boma, best translated as a traditional meeting place, where senior tribe/community members would get together for the 'Kgotla' or meeting. Typically traditional food dishes would be served during or after these get-togethers in the Boma. The Boma offers spectacular vistas of the African night skies, through the silhouettes of Camel Thorn trees and Acacia nigrescens. Dining in the Savute Boma will, without a doubt, bring you closer to nature within the heart of a true bush environment.

Savute Elephant Camp promises outstanding game viewing without having to leave the confines of the camp itself, so prevalent is the wildlife around the water hole. When you do venture out, in open 4x4 vehicles, the there are excellent opportunities to see wildlife on the now dry Savute Marsh, which is also home to the Zebra migration during the months of February and October.

In addition to the game drives, excursions can be arranged to see the historic San rock paintings in the hills or the ancient Gametrackers Baobabs.

Savute Elephant Camp offers game viewing activities in the morning and late afternoons. These activities take place on safari viewing vehicles, designed for your comfort and safety. Activities are restricted to set regulations as the camp is within the Chobe National Park.
