Mystifying scientists with its unpredictable water channel that floods and dries up regardless of rainfall, Savute Reserve offers desert and delta safaris. The reserve covers nearly almost 5,000 sq km (1,930 sq mi) of desert plains, rich grasslands, and dolomite rock outcrops created by volcanic activity 980 million years ago. The most intriguing features of this versatile landscape are the dead trees that line the channel. Watch elephants coming to waterholes and herds of zebras migrating slowly across the plains. Observe the animosity between the “king of the animals” and scavenger hyenas. The reserve is also home to the endangered species of wild dogs.
