What really makes this lodge stand out is its location, with the now flowing Savuti Channel filling the Savuti Marsh, the area is back to where it once was, as one of the best places to see game in Africa.
Located on the banks of the Savuti Channel itself, the camp takes full advantage of the area with great views from your accommodation or the main area, which seemingly at any time of the day always has something of interest outside.
Most activities here are land based on game drives, it should be noted though that as it is within the National Park, there are no night drives nor off road driving allowed. However, the scenery and the chances of seeing good game populations more than make this up for.
Savuti is famed for its predators, from the Leopards who trace down the dolomite rock formations of the Gubatsa Hills whilst klipspringers watch nervously, to the large lion prides known for having developed the skill of hunting elephants, behaviour not generally witnessed in the rest of Africa, the Savuti region is back to its prime as being known as one of the greatest game viewing areas on the continent.
Situated on the banks of Botswana’s fabled Stolen River, Savute Safari Lodge is a traditional thatched safari lodge in a setting of singular beauty. But just as awe-inspiring is the decades old story of how the river was stolen… and in an unexpected twist, how it was given back.
The area is renowned for its population of bull elephant and for the unique interaction of the resident predator species. The close proximity of wildlife translates itself into the recently refurbished, modern African décor.
Savite Safari Lodge’s main living area is constructed of a timber and thatched roof structure, which is unusually built on two levels. The layout and style is akin to a private residence.
Downstairs the lounge and bar area has plenty of seating arrangements with armchairs and settees of wood and soft furnishings. In the same area there is also a library and an open fire to help keep you warm during Savute’s winter nights. Unusually for a safari lodge the flooring downstairs is mainly tiling with grass matting. A separate dinning area is positioned with great views to the outside.
Upstairs is more seating and a viewing deck which gives you a better perspective over the Channel below and any wildlife that may be passing.
Back downstairs and outside there is an open veranda which leads onto a decked seating area with a fire pit and onward to a swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers and a great view of elephants at the water.
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.
