Savuti Camp overlooks the flowing Savute Channel in a private area of the Linyanti concession. The comfortable camp provides accommodation in seven tented rooms with en suite facilities. Each room is raised off the ground on wooden decks. The camp has a thatched dining area, bar and plunge pool, all on raised wooden decks. There is also a curio shop and a boma area. A waterhole is close to camp and attracts large numbers of animals that you can view from the camp.
Regarding game viewing, we can now say that Mary and I have seen 4 out of the Big Five (I guess we have to come back some day to add the Rhino to our list). Although you can't get as close to the animals, we really liked the walking safaris at Camp Okavango; there is something special about walking where the animals walk and you get to experience some of the subtle things that you may not get to see on a game drive. Also, got some great pictures of Hippos yawning. Our guide at Camp Okavango was Obed and he was super. The game drives were fantastic at Camp Moremi and Camp Savuti. At Moremi our guide Banda showed us lots of lions and African buffalo as well as other game. Banda was great at tracking the gam e and was a really nice man. At Savuti, we got some good pictures of leopards and elephants. With regards to the mechanics of the trip, everything went perfect; all transfers and flights went very smooth. We just might have a few pictures to enter int o your photo contest and, once we go through them, we'll share some of them with you!Read More

It was our first visit to Africa, but we certainly hope it will not be our last. We were well taken care of from the minute we landed in Jo'burg. The transfer guide was waiting for us and was very helpful with information about the airport and directions for the next day. The Southern Sun Airport Hotel w as excellent --both the rooms and the restaurant. When we arrived in Victoria Falls, Esther was waiting for us. She had arranged for us to have the honeymoon suite in the Victoria Falls Hotel, and it was beautiful with a breathtaking view of the Falls.
We really enjoyed staying at the lovely Victoria Falls Hotel, and are pleased that you chose that for our accommodation in Victoria Falls.
Our transfer guide to Kasane, Big Boy, was very helpful. The plane was delayed because of engine trouble, and so he took us to the Chobe Safari Lodge for lunch. We truly appreciated that gesture of hospitality.
Needless to say, the facilities at Savuti, Kwetsani, and Mombo are absolutely wonderful. We loved every single camp. Each one is unique and has its own charming features. Wilderness Safaris is flawless in their performance. Their hospitality was amazing at each camp. We were made to feel so welcome by everyone, both managers and staff. The camps are decorated beautifully and are immaculate. The food is gourmet quality and is ever flowing. We certainly were not allowed to get hungry.Read More
