The Gubatsa Hills shelter leopard and klipspringer and rock paintings of early man’s wildlife sightings. During the arid winter months game viewing concentrates on Savute’s resident bull elephants, antelope and lion prides, and black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, tsessebe, and kudu, abound. The summer rains bring a feast for lion, hyena and cheetah as thousands of migrating zebra and wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the marsh. Cape buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell Savute’s 300 resident species, thrilling bird-watchers with their spectacular antics.
Savuti is best visited during the dry months (May-October) for wildlife viewing, especially the elephants. But if you want to see the zebra migration the wet season is better, Zebra give birth to their fowls in Savuti around November and can be seen near Linyanti from February-April.
Many antelope can be found in Savuti, as well as roan and sable antelope, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyaena, black-backed jackal and wild dog. Sometimes the elusive aardvark and aardwolf are spotted. Birding is spectacular.
Botswana has one of the highest desities of African cats. The endangered Wild dogs can be spotted in several areas aswell.
