Savute, a remote and wild corner of Chobe National Park, stretches from the park’s northern boundaries to the Linyanti River.
The area’s main feature is the mysterious Savute Channel, which flows and dries up seemingly unrelated to the rainfall. Dry and arid for almost 30 years, animals in the area were sustained by artificial waterholes
Sizable numbers of elephant bulls are invariably present. During the dry years, when prey was hard to nd, many of Savute’s lion became notorious for hunting elephant.
With the recent transformation of the region, prey has become more abundant and the large lion prides have split up into smaller family groups, allowing a greater variety of predators to flourish in the area.
Savute is also a famous battleground for lion and spotted hyena. With grazing now plentiful, the area is also popular with zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, girafe, tsessebe and kudu.
