The concession

Savanna camp is located in Namibia’s Caprivi region and overlooks the vast plains of Chobe’s Puku Flats.

The seasons

  • Birding is always excellent.
  • The dry season, June to October, is best for elephants and general game along the river
  • Out of season (during the rains) the skies, clouds and sunsets are spectacular, and newborn animals and migrant birds offer great sightings.
  • Elephants and general game can be dispersed and harder to find during the wetter seasons.

Costs and logistics

  • $300 – 700 per person per night
  • Reached by boat from Kasane via Namibia immigration

Photographers need to know

The camp offers boat-based activities. These are extremely comfortable motorised, pontoon-type boats, which offer an extremely comfortable and stable game viewing experience. Game drives into Chobe require a crossing back into Botswana.
