Savute Safari Lodge

To ensure a private and relaxing environment, Savute Safari Lodge accommodates just twenty four guests in twelve thatched chalets built of local timber and one family room which consists of two double bedrooms. The chalets, which have been elegantly furnished in calm neutral tones to blend with the natural environment, feature expansive private decks, a combined bedroom and lounge area and en suite facilities.

Savute Safari Lodge offers a shaded viewing deck, and al fresco dining area and swimming pool with spectacular pool loungers, ideal for watching the varied wildlife – including the resident Elephants, as they make their way to the Channel to drink, bathe and play.

Facilities & Activities

The main lodges has a comfortable lounge, library and bar area, which looks out onto a small waterhole which is fed by one of the channels from the Savute Marsh. You can spend your day either relaxing around the pool area while game watching or reading a book, or get out amongst the game with morning and afternoon 4×4 game drives.

Game drives will incorporate a visit to the famous Savute Marsh for your chance to see the historic presence of the Savute Channel at the marsh against a teeming backdrop of wildlife as well as a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills, a small hilly outcrop which forms a remarkable landmark in the otherwise flat landscape.

Savute lays claim to a spectacularly large summer zebra migration, which is determined by the rains but usually occurs between November and December and again between February and April when the zebras move from the rivers in the north in search of the lush grasslands and full waterholes in the southeast of the park. They are always accompanied by a myriad of predators.
