      Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge

      Gentle Giants and Big Cats

      Situated at the very heart of a wildlife reserve, Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is authentic and truly wild—the perfect place to feel the pulse of Botswana. Botswana's Chobe National Park is a dynamic wilderness. The sweeping expanse of savannah is dotted by rocky outcrops surrounding a marsh and the Savute Channel. Unpredictable wet and dry cycles shape the landscape and wildlife. The Savute Channel began to flow after nearly 30 years of lying dormant, but has since dried up again. The channel can change without warning, becoming one of Northern Botswana’s greatest mysteries. The Gubatsa Hills shelter leopard and klipspringer, with rock paintings depicting early man's animal encounters. Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge hosts a cluster of twelve rooms raised on wooden platforms. Each has an outdoor lounge and is shaded by a traditional thatch roof. The large, private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock. These are ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy. Luxurious room interiors include a four-poster bed complete with mosquito netting, lavishly appointed bathroom and dressing room, a fully-stocked minibar and discreet air conditioning. Enjoy one of Botswana’s most unique dining experiences with a dinner in the atmospheric Boma at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge. Traditionally a meeting place for senior tribesmen, local dishes would be served during their warm-hearted get-togethers. Recreate the experience with your fellow guests while marveling at the inspiring vistas of the African night sky. Game drives often start early. You will be woken and presented with coffee, enjoying a light breakfast in the restaurant before setting off. After dinner, enjoy the bar and lounge areas. Seated around the campfire you can share stories with fellow travelers or simply curl up and relax while the wildlife does the same. Throughout the day you will be able to relax in the quiet atmosphere of the lounge, sampling exotic treats or simply sitting back with a cup of tea taking in the remote landscape. Savute Elephant Lodge is pleased to offer guests a range of facilities including: a spectacular observation deck area, just 30 feet from the adjacent water hole, and an elevated swimming pool area, overlooking the riverbed.
