There are relatively few safari camps and lodges in this vast, pristine wilderness. Most are accessible only by air, especially when the water levels are high. Privately owned and run, they are not subject to the restrictions of national parks, so game viewing opportunities are many and varied: day and night game drives, off-road driving, bush walks, horse-back safaris, canoe and mokoro safaris and trails.
The safari camps are mostly tented in style and offer a luxurious, personal and private safari experience. The traversing areas are vast and the perennial waterways ensure plentiful game all year round. The area is particularly known for its healthy wild dog population.
We have personally visited most of the camps and are familiar with the various settings and unique characters of each lodge. We'll gladly advise you on which lodge would best suit your preferences and expectations.

Savuti Camp is a luxurious tented camp, raised up on stilts to overlook the scenic Savuti channel which itself is a bit of an enigma. It flows strongly for many decades only to disappear and then reappear many years later, bringing an abundance of wildlife in its wake. The channel has been flowing since 2008, creating an established, game-rich area in one of Botswana's remote and unspoiled wildlife sanctuaries, Kwando/Linyanti Reserve.
