Savuti

Savuti is much known for its predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and even African wild dogs. The Savuti channel started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years. The emergence of water charged the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti. This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephants as well as buffalo to visit the area.

You can enjoy a scenic flight in Maun at an additional cost.
