Recommended for:
All-inclusive | Eco-tourism | Family | Lodges | Natural world | Photography | Safari | Small group | Wildlife


Set on the banks of the homonymous Savute Channel, this luxury lodge enjoys a privileged position. This is the lifeblood of Chobe National Park’s western section, a papyrus waterway that breathes life into the surrounding grasslands and provides a focal point for the region’s wildlife. As such, expect roaming predators and herds of elephants, buffaloes and antelopes, as the likes of red hornbills keeps birders entertained. And, thanks to this remote setting, you can expect limited mobile phone reception, so why not switch off and immerse yourself in these stunning surrounds?


The lodge’s suites are constructed entirely from natural woods and hatch, blending perfectly into their surrounds. In turn, interiors are realised in muted colour schemes, with contemporary furnishings that hint at African chic. Each also comes with its own expansive deck for some private wildlife viewing; our Krishna Ghosh has fond memories of watching herds of elephants wander past on her visit. Back inside, you’ll also have a lounge area – complete with comfy chairs – to relax in after your day’s safari.


With all the wildlife activity on offer, you’ll want to take your meals al fresco, with the dining area overlooking the lodge’s very own waterhole. Included meals often come in buffet form, featuring a range of international and local delicacies. Expect plenty of the gamey flavours that Southern Africa has become famous for, alongside hearty vegetarian options. You’ll also be treated to afternoon tea as well as a superb selection of drinks. Whether it’s a bottle of bold South African red with dinner, a gin and tonic by the pool or a cocktail at the bar, you’ll be well looked after.


Days at Savute Safari Lodge centre around morning and afternoon game drives, avoiding the heat of the day when the wildlife is at its least active. You’ll head out in open 4WD vehicles, with expert guides bringing you to the Big Five; this region of the national park is particularly known for its predator population. There’s also the second-largest zebra migration in Africa, the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills and the Savute Marsh’s resident wildlife to explore. After, return to some relaxation at the lodge’s library, lounge and pool or continue your spotting with the waterhole.
