Overview

On our travel days we have an early start. Following breakfast we game-drive towards our next camp stopping for tea/coffee and cookies and later for a relaxing lunch under a shady grove of trees. The best game viewing is the early morning and so each day begins at the first hint of dawn with a coffee and light breakfast around the fire. From here we go straight into game-drive, walking safari or mokoro trip. After several hours of wildlife viewing we stop for a comfort break and have tea, coffee and cookies. Around 11 am we return to camp where there is time to freshen up with warm water in your standing basins before enjoying a sumptuous brunch. After brunch there is time to relax, siesta, read a book, shower etc. Before heading out in the late afternoon for our game-drive or mokoro with sundowners we will enjoy freshly baked cakes with our afternoon tea. In areas outside of the National Parks we may also return to camp after dark with the use of a spotlight to look for nocturnal game.

Unlike the vast majority of the country, Central Chobe is not a totally flat landscape. Large outcrops of volcanic rock reach up out of the Kalahari sands, towering over the endless savannah. Undoubtedly it is the interaction between lion and elephant that is the most interesting aspect of Savuti.
