Situated next to the fickle and unpredictable Savute Channel in Chobe National Park, Savute Safari Lodge offers a relaxing, luxury experience.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of eleven thatched chalets raised on expansive private decks for a maximum of twenty-four guests. Each chalet comes with twin beds, but there is one family chalet with two double bedrooms. Elegantly furnished in neutral tones that complement its surroundings, each chalet features an en suite bathroom with a shower, hand basin, and toilet. Other amenities include fans, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer, bathrobes, flashlight, umbrella, in-room safe, and 220V plug points. The rooms also have a battery-operated reading light, desk light, and bathroom light to illuminate the dark nights.
The lodge is located in the western section of Chobe National Park where the Savute Channel flows, known for generations as the “Stolen River,” for its unpredictable decades-long cycle of drought and flooding. Since its discovery by David Livingstone in 1851, the river has experienced seemingly random periods of drought, unconnected to the region’s amount of rainfall. For now, the river flows and provides a breathtaking panorama for the guests at Savute Safari Lodge. Chobe is known for its high density of elephants as well as the second-largest summer zebra migration in Africa. Of course, the migration is followed by large numbers of predators including lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and the rarer African wild dogs.
