The name Savuti comes from Savuti Game Reserve which is part of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. It covers an area of over 5,000km² in the western section of Chobe National Park with rich savannah plains and grasslands. It is a prime game spotting destination and is often known as one of the best wildlife viewing destinations in Africa. It boasts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife where all major species can be found including giraffe, elephant, zebra, impala, roan, sable, wildebeest, kudu, buffalo, waterbuck, warthog, eland and more.
Chobe National Park is famously known for its elephant population in particular the Kalahari elephant, which is the largest of all known elephants. Savuti is widely known for its annual migration of thousands of zebra which is the second largest zebra migration in Africa, and predators that follow the zebra. It is also known for its wide population of predators, including lion, spotted hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox, the endangered wild dog and cheetah.
The bird life at Savuti is extremely diverse especially during wet seasons with a total of 450 bird species in particular large secretary birds, kori bustards one of the world’s largest flying birds, small red-billed francolins, abdim’s storks, carmine bee-eaters, fish eagles and little queleas. Savuti is therefore a great destination for bird enthusiasts.
Savuti is home to the Savuti Marsh area. This marsh was once part of a large inland lake which dried up due to tectonic movements a long time back. David Livingstone commented that it was a “Dismall Swamp” because it could fill up or dry up despite local rain patterns. The Savuti Marsh was fed by the Savuti Channel which featured Camelthorn acacia trees inside and along its banks. Since then the marsh’s water levels have been very erratic. Unexpected floods drowned the acacia trees and when the marsh dried up, it left its banks littered with dead trees which are now quite a sight and a memorable feature in the Savuti landscape. This is what inspired the thorns and branch in our Savuti development logo. The occasional water in the channel and marsh exposes the Savuti Marsh area to an abundance of wildlife. North of the Savuti Marsh area is another marsh called the Linyanti Marsh which lies along the Linyanti River. Between these two marshes is hot and dry grass woodland which is well known for the Eland.
Also home to Savuti are the Seven Hills of Savuti also known as the Gubatsa Hills. They are approximately 980 million years old and were formed from volcanic movements creating dolomite rock outcrops standing 90 metres high forming these hills. Against Savuti’s flat landscape, these hills are simply mesmerising.
