Savute Safari Lodge
Savute Safari Lodge is located on the banks of the Savute Channel in the Chobe National Park.
The Savute Channel in the western reaches of the Chobe National Park has been notorious for drying up and flooding sporadically for unknown periods of time. The Channel stretches from the Linyanti to the Savute Marsh and nourishes life along the way. Chobe National Park teems with diverse wildlife. Savute is more remote but experiences similar varied game. Savute is home to a famed pride of lions which was known to take down elephants in the past due to a lack of availability of smaller prey during the drought. Strong prides still roam the savanna.
Savute Safari Lodge is a smaller lodge that provides guests with a remote, peaceful and private safari experience. The lodge overlooks the Savute Channel - when it is flowing - and a nearby watering hole. Wildlife is never far away and Savute Safari Lodge’s main lodge, viewing deck and elevated swimming pool all make for prime viewing spots. Guests can dine al fresco on the deck and watch the action around the watering hole. The lodge’s 12 suites have full or partial views of the channel and surrounding plains. The lodge offers land based activities with the game drives to the Savute Marsh offering opportunities to experience the famed Savute lion prides.
“Savute Safari Lodge is not too big which makes for an intimate, personal camp experience. It’s a modern, luxurious lodge and is special in that it is right near the channel and watering hole; the animals are not shy in coming up close. The food was great and there was more than enough choice for guests. The 12 suites face the channel but some of the rooms have restricted views
There is a brilliant team that runs the lodge and the staff and guides were excellent. The game drives were phenomenal and the pride of lions at the Savuti Marsh was a highlight. Early morning game drives meant witnessing the sunrise from the vehicle while spotting wildlife. Following afternoon game drives, guides serve sundowners under a huge baobab tree which is a special wilderness experience. Savute Safari Lodge created a calm and relaxed atmosphere.”
