Day 1 : Savute

Guests are met at any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria and transferred to O R Tambo International for a flight to Maun and from there an onward connection to Savute. The Savute safari area forms part of the Chobe National Park. During the rainy season vast herds of plains game and the predators that prey on them are attracted to the area. The late afternoon is devoted to your first open 4x4 safari in Savute.

Day 2 : Savute

The day is devoted to early morning and late afternoon open 4x4 safaris. The Savute Channel runs for almost 100km from the Linyanti Swamp and feeds the Savute Marsh in the nearby Mababe Depression. Having been dry for nearly 20 years, the channel recently began flowing again. A strange feature of the channel is that it sometimes flows during dry seasons, yet during exceptionally wet seasons can remain bone dry.

Day 3 : Savute

The day is devoted to early morning and late afternoon open 4x4 safaris. In addition to the great numbers of plains game like zebra and wildebeest, the area is blessed with prolific bird life, which can be seen around the Savute Marsh throughout the year. These include secretary birds, Kori bustards and red-billed francolins, with the summer migrants including Abdim's storks and Carmine bee-eaters. Bird watchers may be lucky enough to spot the gathering of Quelea finches - a single flock might contain tens of thousands of these small birds.
