Did you know?

The Savuti Channel remains a biodiversity mystery, drying up sporadically over the past 100 years – a natural event confusing the ‘dead’ trees growing in the channel that germinate during dry times but drown again during wet times.


  • See not only the Big 5 but also cheetahs, wild dog packs, bat-eared foxes, wildebeest, tsessebe, kudus, buffalos, eland, and hyenas.
  • Feel completely alone in a 900 square km paradise setting of true swamps, lagoons, and grassland habitats at Linyanti and the Savuti Channel.
  • Float on a boat beside grunting hippos, crocs, and fish eagles – silent, tranquil, alive.
  • The best time to visit is all the time! The rainy season is bird season (November to April); the dry season is animal season (May to October).

The exceptional ecosystems of Savuti and Linyanti

Two life-giving rivers feed all ecosystems between their linked channels. The Linyanti River rises in the Angolan Highlands, joining the Chobe River as it meanders towards the Savuti Channel. It ultimately forms a delta wetland on the border of Namibia and Botswana, making a dramatic 90-degree turn. From here, the Savuti Channel flows for 75 km until it peters out in the Kalahari’s parched wasteland. Towards the start of summer, impressive herds of zebras and elephants migrate towards the Savute channel to breed and forage. Everything is linked.

Accommodation is available in this isolated region but it remains secluded and minimal. Intrepid explorers stay in luxury safari tented camps and exquisite eco-lodges with upmarket mod cons for global tourism requirements. Efficient game rangers show guests their world by boat, mokoro, 4×4 game drive vehicle, or on foot. Special package deals include flights, transfers and all meals, for safari memories in Africa.
