About Savute

Situated towards the south of Botswana's renowned Chobe National Park, Savuti is at once a wildlife hotspot and a geological mystery. The fabled Savute Channel has a history of drying up for absolutely no reason and then raging back into flood just as inexplicably. In fact, it's this mystery that gave the region its name - 'Savute' means ‘something that cannot be explained’. Today geologists postulate that its emergence and disappearance may have something to do with complicated tectonic movements beneath the Kalahari Desert, but even so, the channel and its fickle ways remains a source of great intrigue.
