This famous western part of Chobe is one of Botswana’s best-renowned wildlife areas. Savuti covers about 5000 square kilometers, this includes the Mababe depression, Savuti channel, Savuti Marsh, and the Magwikana Sand Ridge, each feature fashioned by the Tectonic instability of the region.
it is hard to imagine the area was once under the button of an inland sea, the Giant Lake Makgakgadi. The drying up of the Giant lake Makgadikagdi left the Okavango Delta, the Mababe Depression, Nxai Pan, Makgadkgadi Pans, and Lake Ngami. The Magwikana Sand represents the ancient shoreline which is easily detailed on satellite images of savuti, when driving on the road from savuti to Mababe follow the edge of the Mababe depression of which the deepest part is the savuti Marsh. The dead trees on the Savuti Marsh are evidence of the last flooding, which has dried up over the past 23 years. Savuti Channel, historical keeps on flowing and drying up. The dead trees tell a story of the nonflowing period when the Camelthorn trees have enough time to reach full height. A phenomenon of flooding occurred and trees drowned, the only explanation for this flowing could be the tectonic movements which as the area is an extension of the Rift valley, which makes a lot of sense.
The zebra and Wildebeest migration are breathtaking to experience in savuti, predators like lions, and hyenas have been witnessed following this migration, with lush sweet grasses turning to an excellent diversity of other predators and plains game species with artificial waterholes and natural pans in the dry season sustain, a large number of elephants. The area forms a sharp contrast to the Chobe riverfront giving outstanding wildlife experiences in sharp contrast to one another and providing a good combine both areas when one visits Botswana.
