Savute Safari Lodge
Chobe and Savute
Savute Safari Lodge overlooks the mysterious and magical Savute Channel, whose waters began flowing again in 2011 after 30 years. Consequently, the wildlife is simply superb. The Lodge is located in the Savute region of the iconic Chobe National Park, home to a reputed 120,000 elephant. The Savute Safari Lodge is small and charming but with all the luxuries you would expect from a 5 star ‘bush’ establishment. It accommodates only 24 guests in 11 cool, thatched timber and glass suites and 1 family suite, all with en-suite shower room. The area is renowned for its population of bull elephant and for the unique interaction of the resident predator species. The close proximity of wildlife translates itself into the recently refurbished, modern African décor. Delicious dinners are served al fresco on a ‘deck with a jaw-dropping view, or for our honeymooners, private dinners can be arranged.
Activities are centred around game drives throughout the Savute area in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Many trips will incorporate a visit to the famous Savute Marsh for your chance to see the historic presence of the Savute Channel at the marsh against a teeming backdrop of wildlife. Guests will also enjoy a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills, a small hilly outcrop which forms a remarkable landmark in the otherwise flat landscape. Savute lays claim to a spectacularly large summer zebra migration, which is determined by the rains but usually occurs between November and December and again between February and April when the zebras move from the rivers in the north in search of the lush grasslands and full waterholes in the southeast of the park. They are always accompanied by a myriad of predators.
