Wilderness Safaris Savuti Camp Receives Extensive Makeover

The renowned and newly-refurbished Savuti Camp, located in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel in Botswana, has received an extensive softs upgrade including stylish new interiors, improved lighting, expanded decks and new walkways. 

In line with Wilderness Safaris’ commitment to create life-changing journeys for its guests, Savuti Camp’s eight large en-suite tents, including a family room, have undergone a complete makeover, with new wardrobes, lighting and a new desk and chair in the sitting areas. The main area comprises new sofas, desks, lamps and décor, while the dining area is set with new tables, chairs and lighting. The pool and fire decks have been extended, the bar rebuilt and large feature umbrellas added to the pool area.

Light-coloured interiors were chosen to complement the geometric design of the throws and other décor elements such as locally-sourced African artefacts found throughout the camp. According to interior designer, Michele Throssell, “The existing colours were very dark and old fashioned, so our aim was to breathe new life into the space with a refreshed look and feel, using lighter colours as slip covers on sofas, and accents on the colours of the environment, such as rust greens and taupes. We also added detail to the cushions and throws to bring in some colour and texture to the lighter canvas”.
