Savu Island (also known as Sawu, Sawoe or Sabu) is part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. When your ship calls here, take the time to discover the secrets of ikat, a special weaving technique known throughout Indonesia. The island’s inhabitants are particularly skilled at it. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the Indonesian culture during your visits to Bodo and Namata, two traditional villages. In Namata, admire the local homes shaped like upside-down boats and follow in the footsteps of the famous English explorer James Cook, who landed on the island in 1770.
