Savute Elephant Camp Review

In the semiarid Savuti region, splendid, spacious, air-conditioned, twin-bedded tents are elegantly furnished with cane and dark wood furniture, an impressive bed canopy with mosquito net, and a roomy bathroom with his-and-her sinks. For cold winter mornings and evenings, there's even a built-in heater. Your private viewing deck overlooking one of the busiest elephant water holes in the world has comfortable chairs and an inviting hammock. As the camp is in Chobe National Park, night drives and walking are against regulations, but you'll still see plenty of game and birds during the day. If you can manage to be here at full moon, the sight of hundreds of great, gray shapes gleaming in the moonlight is truly unforgettable.
