The game viewing offered by Savute is an experience not to be missed, especially if you are visiting in the summer months, after November’s first rains when thousands of animals are drawn to the area. Savute Safari Lodge’s highlights are its concentrations of Lion and Hyena, as well as its Leopard, Cheetah, Black-Backed Jackal and the many lone Elephant bulls, usually seen frequenting their favourite watering holes
Game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles are conducted in the Savute area, including the Savute Marsh, and a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills.

In the evening, the sun sets behind flocks of Marabou Storks roosting in the bare trees and the Woodland Kingfishers sing you to sleep on moonlit nights.

The Okavango Delta, and more specifically the permanent Okavango Delta form a unique ecosystem which is fascinating and rewarding to visit for the avid safari-goer. This area, with its combination of permanent water courses, massive floodplains and network of intriguing island networks is a safe haven to many animal and bird species. The summer season in Botswana welcomes a large variety of migrant birds from the northern hemisphere which use Botswana, and more specifically the Okavango Delta, as preferred areas for breeding and feeding.

Guided nature walks on the various islands allow for opportunity to track some of the larger species that inhabit this water wilderness.
