Savu is a very arid place and is believed to be the driest place in all of Indonesia. Few travellers make it out to this rocky outcrop of an island but those who do are met by very rich history and culture. The island is a rugged paradise located between Timor and Sumba and has the lowest amount of rainfall in Indonesia. If you are in search of 12 hours of daily sunshine, then you have come to the right place. The Savunese are a very proud people and for many years repelled the Portuguese and Dutch from landing on their paradise.

It is reported that Captain Cook did land here in 1770 and left a carved plaque in the village of Namata. There is also a stone plaque carving of a four mast tall ship. Though the writing beneath has faded, villagers say the Portuguese made it in 1684. Misara, in the far south of the island, is worthy of a visit. The small village has three sets of Megaliths and numerous ritual structures. Be aware that taking photographs freely can be considered an insult to the villagers, so ask politely if you may photograph something, and leave a gift as payment.

There are two ways of getting here; those being by ferry from Kupang in Timor or Waingapu in Sumba. The ferries usually arrive once a week on Wednesdays and Sundays respectively. You will most definitely arrive on Savu through the small port of Seba, which lies on the west coast of the island. It is a pretty little town with a scattering of fisherman's huts lining the pebbly beach. The closest village is Namata where you will see traditional Suvanese houses shaped like upturned boats. If the peak of the roof reaches the ground it is said that the house is sacred and a place for storing ritual objects.
