The Savuti Marsh, fed by the Savuti Channel, has developed a reputation over the years as one of the world’s premier predator viewing areas, boasting one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent. A number of award-winning documentary films shot in Savuti have solidified its stature and its mysterious reputation continues to draw intrigue. The Channel, once a hippo-filled river, dried up in 1982 and remained a bone-dry bed littered with elephant skeletons for decades until it began to flow once again in 2010. For a few years, the marsh was flooded by the channel as water was fed from up north, until it once again it dried its banks. The ever-enigmatic Savuti Channel and the famous marsh remain dry, yet its sweet grasses attract herbivores of every description and, of course, their attendant predators.
The Chobe National Park covers about 11,700km² of the northern Kalahari, much of it impenetrable thorn bush growing on deep sand, but also constructed of vast floodplains, swamps and woodland. It's famous for huge herds of elephant and buffalo, and large prides of lion; and for the mysterious, disappearing (and reappearing) Savuti Channel. The key to this safari area is Chobe's animal migrations. Chobe's animals move in complex, ancient patterns determined by the rain and available food. All the predators occur in the Savuti region- Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog. Key to this area is the unpredictable Savuti Channel, which sometimes flows from the Linyanti's waterways and into the heart of Chobe National Park, flooding the Savuti Marsh. Even when dry, the marsh is a real attraction; vast, open grassland dotted with the skeletons of drowned trees.
