Savute Safari Lodge

Savute Safari Lodge is a very comfortable chalet style lodge overlooking the Savute Channel in the Savute Marsh region of Chobe National Park.

Savute Safari Lodge is slightly larger than many camps and lodges we recommend in Botswana, but it is very well run, has a great atmosphere with friendly service, and the location for general game viewing is superb. If you want to explore the Savute Channel and Marsh area, there are few places to stay beyond the mobile camp sites, and Savute Safari Lodge is the obvious choice for a 4 star experience (if you are looking for 5 star experience or greater exclusivity then other parts of Botswana will be better suited). The elephant viewing in front of camp is incredible as from June to October the natural channel and two pumped waterholes attract herds of elephant all day long.


Savute Safari Lodge accommodates up to 24 guests in 12 very comfortable chalets constructed from glass and timber and covered in thatch. All have en suite plumbed facilities, ceiling fan and private decks. The bedrooms are spacious enough…


The Chobe National Park covers an area of 11,000 sq. kms and its habitats range from the floodplains and riverine woodland around the Chobe River in the north through extensive tracts of mopane woodland and sand ridges…
