Savute Safari Lodge
Stretching from the Linyanti River all the way to Savute Marsh, the winding waterways of the Savute Channel have pumped life into the western section of Chobe National Park for thousands of generations. However, this fickle and unpredictable channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up, independently of good rainy seasons and flood levels elsewhere.
To ensure a private and relaxing environment, Savute Safari Lodge accommodates just twenty-four guests in eleven 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.
Game Drives from the lodge explore the Savute region in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Many excursions will incorporate a visit to the Savute Marsh to give you a chance to see the historic presence of the Savute Channel at the marsh against a backdrop of teeming wildlife.
Guests can also enjoy a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills– a small hilly outcrop which forms a prominent landmark in the otherwise flat landscape.
