Savuti Camp

Pros

  • Opportunity to sleep under the stars

Cons

  • Very dry and hot in the summer

Updated 12/03/2014

Fodor's Review

This intimate camp has only seven walk-in tents, which are raised on stilts above the broad Savuti Channel. Several bridges allow you to traverse both sides of the river in search of the many resident predators—lions, leopards, cheetahs, and wild dogs can all be spotted here—during day and night game-drives. Although the flowing channel has provided more elephant drinking points compared to a few years ago when this was a single waterhole in a dry riverbed, you should

still see plenty of pachyderms especially in the dry season. The elevated thatched main area (including a bar, pool and viewing decks) has wicker furniture with plush, crimson cushions matching the stunning sunsets reflected in the water below. Spacious, comfortable en-suite rooms with snug armchairs and writing desks continue the burgundy color theme. For something a bit more adventurous, you can spend the night on one of two sleep-out decks located a short boat ride away from camp, with just a mosquito net separating you from a giant dome of sparkling stars.
