To ensure a private and relaxing environment, Savute Safari Lodge accommodates just 24 guests in 12 local timber and thatched chalets. The chalets have been elegantly furnished in calm neutral tones to compliment the natural environment and feature expansive private decks, a combined bedroom and lounge area plus en-suite facilities.
The signature expansive glass sliding doors and viewing decks at Savute Safari Lodge were inspired by the striking panorama, and have been further complemented by the Savute Channel which now flows just 50 metres from the lodge.
Sink into one of the numerous comfortable leather, wood or wicker sofas in the lounge – and library – or sip a cocktail in the stylish bar, all of which are situated in a beautiful two-storey thatch and timber main building.
Savute Safari Lodge boasts a shaded viewing deck, alfresco dining area and swimming pool with spectacular pool loungers – ideal for watching the varied wildlife – and the resident elephants – as they make their way to the Savute Channel to drink, bathe and play.
Open 16 Mar – 01 Feb
Activities are centred around game drives throughout the Savute area in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles.
Many trips will incorporate a visit to the Savute Marsh for your chance to see the now present Savute Channel at the marsh against a teeming backdrop of wildlife.
Guests will also enjoy 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 the second biggest summer zebra migration in Africa, which is determined by the rains, but usually occurs between November and December and again between February and April.
This is when the zebras move from the rivers in the north in search of the rain-ripe grasslands and full waterholes in the southeast of the park.
Often followed by a myriad of predators, the zebra migration is a must for visitors.
All suites have private decks, combined bedroom and sitting areas and en-suite facilities.
