Savute Elephant Lodge

The magical world of Savute awaits. Whether you’re in camp viewing wildlife at the waterhole, or out on the high-spec game drive vehicles Savute seldom disappoints.

A stay at Savute Elephant Lodge starts with a warm welcome from the staff choir. Then after a brief orientation you’ll be shown to your room. The tented rooms are elegant, stylish and sophisticated with an almost ‘seaside’ feel with the pale canvas walls accented with fabrics in blue and turquoise hues. Back in the main area the spacious deck houses the pool and overlooks the busy permanent waterhole. In the dry season it’s the only water for miles around and it’s quite therapeutic and often exciting to sit and watch the comings and goings.

Food is an important part of any safari, and there’s always plenty of it. Twice a week guests can enjoy dinner under the starts in the boma accompanied by traditional singing and storytelling. Start the day with a piping hot cup of coffee before setting off on a game drive, with a maximum of six guests per vehicle. After returning to the camp, brunch is served. It’s always an amazing spread of salads, charcuterie and cheese along with an a la carte menu.

The lodge exudes a feeling of calm and relaxation. It’s a haven to return to after a day out exploring the magical Savute area of the Chobe National Park.
