SAVUTI

The Savuti area is a prime game viewing destination, which offers great game viewing and remarkable history. The Savuti Channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up independently of good rainy seasons and flood levels elsewhere – a mystery that has intrigued geologists and other researchers for many years. The channel dried up in 1885 and started flowing again in 1967 until the end of 1982. Since 1982, the channel has been dry but in late 2009 it started to flow again. It is slowly filling up the marsh and has transformed the area from having 3 small water points artificial pumped to a wetland. This has also changed the cycle of animals that used to migrate out of the area in the dry season, they are now staying. It is very exciting and it will be fascinating to see how the area develops. Savuti is most famous for its predators.
