Savute Safari Lodge Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Peak season game viewing concentrates on Savuti’s famous resident bull Elephants, antelope and Lion prides around half-empty pans and permanent waterholes. Black-backed Jackal, Bat-eared Fox, Tsessebe, Kudu, Impala, Giraffe and Ostrich abound. The summer rains bring a feast for Lion, Hyena and Cheetah as thousands of migrating Zebra and Wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the Savuti Marsh. Buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell Savuti’s resident population of over 300 species. Carmine Bee-eaters perch on the backs of Kori Bustards and Redcrested Korhaans plummet from the sky in daring acrobatic mating displays.
Professional safari guides will reveal the secrets of the African bush while on game activities. Daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles are offered in the Savute area of the Chobe National Park, including the Savute Marsh and a visit to Gubatsa Hills and ancient San rock paintings.
