The Savuti and Linyanti safari areas are situated between the Okavango Delta and the Chobe National Park. The area is made up of vast open grassland, swamps, and sandy plains. The region is well known for its superb lion-viewing and will not disappoint. Along with a remarkably high density of elephants, the area also hosts one of Africa's largest annual zebra migrations, where the herds move from the Linyanti to the Savute and back in search of better grazing. There are a number of small intimate camps in the area, and due to it being pleasantly remote, a superb wilderness safari experience can be expected.
