Tourism in Botswana is seen as unaffordable to most citizens due to the high value low volume policy which has out priced Batswana from most of the luxurious camps, especially in the Delta and Chobe National Park.
Camp Savuti, a citizen-owned tented safari camp company, seems to have heeded the cry of Batswana who want to enjoy the flora and fauna of the country yet constrained by their shallow pockets which only allows them to tour the park and return to more affordable lodges out the park.
Though luxurious and offering privacy and peace, the camp is affordable especially to those who want the tranquility of nature. Situated in the Savuti Marsh in the heart of Chobe National Park, Camp Savuti can be explored by 4x4 safari vehicles, making the trip to the camp exciting and adrenalin pumping experience as one can see the predators that dwell in the marshland.
Arriving at the camp, one is welcomed by the beautifully decorated camp with African inspired woodwork; cattle skin rugs and crafts, giving one an authentic African Safari feel.
The tents are raised on wooden decks with private verandas facing the Savuti channel, a perfect opportunity for one to enjoy his/her privacy with the melodious songs from the birds – a testimony to enjoying nature in its purest form.
For the book worms that can’t stay for a few days without reading, Camp Savuti is an ideal place as it has a library which mostly has books on wildlife.
In the evening if it is a honeymoon outing, there are bar and boma facilities for convivial drinks which the couple can use to reminisce about their many lovely days before they tied the knot or during their nuptials.
