Perched on the former banks of the now dry Savute Channel, your camp is a spectacular base to explore the area which is home to high concentrations of elephant and lions. Prides up to 40 strong are not uncommon, as are sightings of all the other major predators; the endangered wild dog, leopard, cheetah, and the hyena. Savute is also renowned for its excellent birding during the summer (December to March), as well as being home to some rare rock paintings drawn by the early Bushmen who once inhabited the region.

This morning you will be transferred by shared light aircraft to your next camp (time to be advised locally). Situated on the island of Xaxaba, the camp overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. The area offers high quality wildlife viewing with prolific birdlife and mammal sightings. It is also the site of one of the most romantic bars in the world, the Fish Eagle Bar, as voted by the New York Times. Between April and October the camp offers a choice of game viewing by mokoro canoe and motorised boat sundowner cruises in the surrounding lagoons. When water levels are low (December to March) morning, afternoon and evening gamedrives are offered and safari walks are offered all year round.
