Savuti – Chobe National Park

Savuti (also spelled Savute) is a region of Botswana’s Chobe National Park – it’s not a game reserve or game park. The Savuti region is the best place to see mighty predators such as its famous lions along with masses of wildebeest, impala, and warthogs. Savuti is also a great place to see the spotted hyena due to its large populations.

Savuti is located deeper into the park, bordering the Delta to the west. It’s the perfect place for seeing wild game and the Big Five in a safari vehicle – as it boasts the highest concentration of animals in Southern Africa.
