Amazing Animals

Watching the animals was incredible. A leopard walked right along side our jeep. Up close and personal with the animal water hole.

Above expectations

Got a private tour in a large safari vehicle. Eye in eye with all the wildlife, except for the leopard. Even witnessed a pack of wild dogs hunting and killing a small impala. Fabulous park.

Beautiful landscape, rich wildlife and lions paradise
Jan 2020
Savuti was one of the highlights of my trip to Botswana. Not easy to get to the reserve, as the drive can be challenging, but I am so happy I spent 2 full days and 2 nights exploring this amazing area. I saw many animals, including a lion eating his kill first thing in the morning and 2 lionesses with 9 cubs - just amazing views, photography and experience.

Boring & being riped off
Dec 2019 • Couples
If you have been to Kenya or other national parks, you will find this boring in terms of the minimal types & numbers of animal to be seen here.

And the drivers of the park's game drive use dirty trick to ripe off tourists. The drivers said, "we are not supposed to drive off the track but we know that the lions are sleeping under the bushes. If each party pays USD10 and we will keep this secret and drive you off track to see the lions". We said NO but the driver still drove us off track to see the lion. And then force us to pay afterwards.

Bumpy road
Sep 2019
Savute Reserve is one of the greener area's in the Okavango Delta during dry season due the precense of the Chobe river with a lot of wildlife in the area. The road from the Savuti Campsite to Ngoma gate is bumpy as a washboard with here and there deep sand during dry season, even with lowered tire pressure it is a very uncomfortable drive.

wonderful reserve
Jul 2019
Take a guide through the reserves. Self drive is available but you see so much more wildlife when guided. This is a wonderful part of the chobe national park. Great wildlife viewing though very dry 2019. Dawn drives are a must.

Incredible Savuti
Sep 2019
Incredible wild wilderness area where the absolute feeling of isolation is just magical. Viewed Lion, Elephant and Buffalo every day and Leopard twice in only 4 days.
