Savute Under Canvas is situated in the Savute region of the Chobe National Park which encompasses 11 700 km2 of wilderness, bordered in the north by the beautiful Chobe River, and buffered on all sides by wildlife management areas and forest reserves allowing for the free movement of game. A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, Chobe National Park is one of the top wilderness reserves in the world and is home to the largest single concentration of elephant.
On the 5th April 2012 during the morning game drive towards the Marabou Pan area in Savute, we saw a very interesting starling and African harrier hawk. The African harrier hawk was moving from tree to tree, branch after branch and most of the other birds seemed annoyed at the presence of this huge giant. The hornbills & starlings started mocking the giant and the big bird flew away after being pester and irritated.It just goes to show you that no matter how big you are, with persistent mocking you can win your turf back.
