Botswana

Savute Elephant Lodge

PLAN MY TRIP

Situated in the very heart of Chobe National Park and perched on the edge of the Savute Channel, Savute Elephant Lodge provides an authentic, luxury safari camp experience.

Accommodations at the lodges consist of twelve luxurious thatched tents, built on raised timber platforms that afford excellent views. The spacious tents have polished timber floors, a writing desk, and comfortable chairs. The rooms feature two three-quarter beds with a generous mosquito net. Two air-conditioning units and an overhead fan keeps the rooms cool and refreshing. The en-suite bathrooms have twin basins, flush toilets, and both an indoor and outdoor shower. For added privacy, each tents includes an outdoor lounge shaded by a traditional thatched roof and are furnished with comfortable easy chairs and a day bed.

The lodge is ideally set in Chobe National Park which is particularly known for its great herds of elephant with some estimates putting it as high as 50,000 individuals. But the park also enjoys an abundant population of large lion prides, leopards, cheetahs, and scores of beautiful birds. The surrounding landscape is quintessential Africa with its sweeping savanna, rocky outcrops, ancient marshlands, and the mysterious Savute Channel which only recently began flowing again after laying dry for thirty years.

There are plenty of activities available at the lodge. Daily game drives are led by trained guides. Early mornings drives are very productive as it is still cool and many predators are still on the prowl. Of course, there are the elephant, but leopard and lion are out too. The birds are plentiful too with over 250 species, including the carmine bee-eaters who flap and fuss on the riverbanks and the male red-crested Korhaan who soars skywards and then plummets down in his astonishing mating display. Guided walking safaris lead guests to discover the ancient baobabs and San rock paintings.

The camp’s main area is under a huge canvas roof but has open sides with panoramic views of the many elephants that wander around the camp. The main area houses the bar, lounge, and dining area. But meals can also be enjoyed at the wonderful boma which also features local performances. There is also a library and a curio shop. A generous veranda overlooks the refreshing swimming pool and then on to the waterhole.
