Located a short plane hop from either Maun or Kasane, Savute Safari Lodge is located in the heart of Botswana in the Greater Chobe National Park. The now dry Savute Channel made this region a haven for wildlife and Savute lays claim to the second largest summer zebra migration in Africa. The area is also famous for its elephant and lion populations and is one of our top recommendations for a safari holiday in Botswana. As the game viewing activities are all vehicle based, we recommend a stay in Savute is combined with a water based safari in the Okavango Delta where guests will see different kinds of animals.
Rooms at Savute Safari Lodge
All chalets have private decks, a combined bedroom/ lounge area and en suite facilities. There is 24 hour electricity and rooms are equipped with hair dryers, tea and coffee making facilities etc. Outside each room there is a large private deck where you can watch the animals as they pass in front of the rooms.
The main lounge, library and cocktail bar are situated in the exquisite thatch and timber main building, with views across to the watering hole. There is a large viewing deck, al fresco dining area and swimming pool – also overlooking the waterhole. Meals and drinks are all included in a stay at Salute Safari Lodge.
All game viewing is conducted in open 4×4 vehichles, there are no water based activities at this lodge. The best time to catch the zebra migration is between November and December and again in February but it is determined by the rains and therefore not an exact science!
No children under 12 are permitted.
The camp is a sister property to Chobe Game Lodge and Camp Okavango, and is offered as part of a multi-centra Botswana safari itinerary. This gives guests a chance to experience different types of safari experiences in different terrains.
Your stay at Savute Safari Lodge is inclusive of accommodation, all meals, all local brand drinks, scheduled game-viewing activities, park entrance fees and laundry service.
