The site of the camp is about 17 kilometres 'downstream' from the Zibadianja Lagoon - the source of the Channel. The Channel stopped flowing between 1980 and 2008; during this time it was an unusual and productive ribbon of grassland that served as a corridor and feeding ground in the surrounding woodland for a wide variety of herbivores. Savuti Camp is a small and intimate camp in an isolated area, far from any other people. Accommodation at Savuti is in seven large comfortable walk in tents with en-suite facilities. Each tent is raised off the ground on platforms and has its own bathroom with a shower, hand basin and flush toilet.

One of the seven tents is a family room, configured using two tents side-by-side, each with its own separate en-suite facilities. There is a separate dining room and pub under reed and thatch, also on raised platforms, as well as a plunge pool.
