Best time to travel:
Savuté is almost unmatched when it comes to year round game viewing. Like Chobe the best time are the dry winter months from May to October. The greener, rainy season from November to April are best for the Zebra migration and bird watching.
The Savuté channel flows from the Linyanti River for about 100 kilometres, carrying water away from the river and releasing it into a vast swampland of the Savuté Marsh and further south into the Mababe Depression, which is also fed by the Ngwezumba River from the northeast. The Mababe an immense, flat area fringed by thickets of trees, was once part of the Makgadikgadi super-lake. When covered by water, it becomes the venue for thousands of migratory birds and animals, particularly large herds of zebra. Truly at the interior of the park, Savuté boasts most of the Chobe species, except for water-loving antelope. It is best known for its particularly lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena, of which there are large resident populations.
Geographically, Savuté is an area of many mysteries. One of it is the Savuté channel which in the past century inexplicably dried up and recommenced its flow several times for no apparent reason. This irregular water flow explains the numerous dead trees that line the channel. They somehow revived and started to grow when the channel was dry and drowned when the channel was flooded.
