It is on the banks of Botswana’s fabled Stolen River, that you will find Savute Safari Lodge in a setting of singular beauty. Savute Safari Lodge is located deep in the heart of Chobe National Park in a region renowned for its massive herds of Elephant.
Savute’s signature expansive glass sliding doors and viewing decks were inspired by the striking panorama, whether seen in the dry season when it can appear desert-like and barren beyond belief or after the rain on one of those crystal clear days across the vivid green of new grass, the impression is always the same.
Savute Safari Lodge accommodates only 24 guests in 12 local timber and glass chalets with cool thatching, beautifully furnished in fresh colors. All chalets have private decks, a combined bedroom / lounge area and en-suite facilities, which sets the lodge apart from typical safari accommodation. The lounge, library and cocktail bar are situated in the exquisite thatch and timber main building, while overlooking the channel, Savute boasts a viewing deck, al fresco dining area & swimming pool - ideal for watching game at the water hole.
Activities center around game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles in the Savute area, including the Savute Marsh, and a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills. Savute lays claim to the second biggest summer zebra migration in Africa, which is determined by the rains, but usually occurs between November - December and again between February - April when the zebras are in search of the rain-ripe grasslands.
