Savute Channel

By July 9, 2016 No Comments

The Savute Channel ( also spelt Savute) has a uniqe feature whereby it sometimes flows from Linyanti’s waterways into the Chobe National Park, flooding the Savute Marsh. The Marsh, even when dry , this area attracts scores of wildlife which are attracted by the nutritious grasses of the area.  The area become awash with large Zebra herds which pass through on their annual migration. Impala, wildebeest, giraffe, buffalo and elephant herds all tend to frequent this area

We have had some very most exciting lion sightings here, with large prides that defend their territories. There are also very frequent  sightings of leopard, which live in amoungst the rocky kopjes. Birding is equally rewarding with large secretary birs and Kori bustards which are often around the marsh. Interesting summer migrants include  Abdims storks, carmine bee eaters and even fish eagles.
