Welcome to Savute Under Canvas
Savute, a remote and wild corner of Chobe National Park, stretches from the park’s northern boundaries to the Linyanti River. It’s named after the enigmatic Savute Channel, which flows and dries up intermittently, seemingly unrelated to rainfall: it flowed in 2009, again in 2013 and no-one can say when it will flow again.
Savute Under Canvas is a mobile camp carefully positioned close to this channel which feeds into the Savute Marsh, home to exceptional numbers of elephant-hunting lion.
Situated within the unique and haunting Savute landscape, our exclusive mobile campsites are perfectly situated to explore this remote region. The common guest area comprises open-sided tents for dining, pre-dinner drinks, or simply whiling away the time between game viewing adventures with a good book and a frosted beer or glass of wine. Delicious meals cooked over the coals are shared around a blazing fire.
You’ll love the spaciousness of our mobile tents. Each of the five canvas tents boasts a comfortable double or twin bed, as well as an ensuite bathroom, separate flush WC and an outdoor bucket shower – steaming hot water is available on request. A private butler is on hand to assist with any requirements.
Live this real-life adventure, immersed in the wild world of Savute.
*Please note: Botswana is currently experiencing a drought. Water levels change yearly and weather patterns are unpredictable.

What would you like to see? &Beyond’s professionally trained guides will tailor your interpretive game drive around your preference – whether it’s tracking a particular species or spending extra time at each sighting – as you explore the game-rich landscapes of Savute.
ANCIENT ICONS OF SAVUTE
Take a walk. Explore the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills, a small hilly outcrop overlooking the landscape. Marvel at the avenue of ancient baobab trees a short distance away at the edge of the wide open plains of Savute. Sunset colours provide a superb photographic opportunity.
DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT
Drop off the radar. With no Wi-Fi or electricity, you have the rare opportunity to disconnect from the everyday world and reconnect with yourself and each adventure-filled moment. Priceless time with those people special to you, new friendships, and memories to last a lifetime.
Stargaze to your hearts content as you dine beneath a blanket of stars: all meals are freshly prepared over an open fire. Meal times turn into story time as you swap details of your day’s adventures and wildlife sightings. Tune in to the day-night soundscape of Savute’s wild spaces.
