Set under a canopy of ancient shady trees, Savuti Camp overlooks the eponymous channel in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve in northern Botswana. While the Savute Channel has recently dried up after a number of years of flowing, a prolific amount of wildlife is now drawn to the waterholes and is grazing on the floodplain.

The seven canvas and thatch rooms at Savuti Camp are built on raised decks connected by wooden walkways, all in the shade of large trees. Each tent is luxuriously appointed with an en-suite bathroom, and a spacious viewing deck perched on the edge of the channel at the front. There is a spacious dining area, bar and lounge under a thatched roof, and a plunge pool, all of which look out over the water. There are also hides where guests can experience wildlife viewing up close.
