SAVUTE SAFARI LODGE - SAVUTE
MARSH, CHOBE NATIONAL PARK, BOTSWANA
In the heart of Botswana’s Chobe National
Park lies a dynamic wilderness, a sweeping expanse of savannah brooded
over by seven rocky outcrops that guard a relic marsh, only now once again filling with the waters of the flowing Savute channel. Mysterious wet and dry cycles mould this landscape
and dictate the nature of its wild inhabitants. This is Savute and for
the moment the channel is dry.
Savute Safari Lodge peers out from ancient camel thorn trees on the shore
of the channel. The lounge, library and cocktail bar are situated in the
exquisite thatch and timber main building, where an upstairs viewing deck
allows Savute’s enchanting sunsets to mesmerize guests. A large
fireplace downstairs is equally inviting on winter nights, while the delicious
aroma of dinner and the prospect of candlelit dining beckons guests to
the elegant dining-room. Savute Safari Lodge is owned and operated by
Desert & Delta Safaris.

Savute Safari Lodge accommodates
just 24 people in twelve contemporary, tastefully furnished, twin-bedded
luxury wood, thatch and glass safari suites, ideal for the hot and dry
conditions. Double volume suites with their spacious interior and large,
glass sliding doors sets the lodge apart from typical safari accommodation.
Large private viewing decks and en-suite facilities, with walk in showers
combine to make Savute Safari Lodge an unforgettable experience.
The lodge also boasts a swimming pool and shaded viewing deck, both of
which overlook the channel, and where afternoon tea is served and guests
can sit around the campfire after dinner.

The world-acclaimed game
viewing of Savute is an experience not to be missed. Professional safari
guides will unveil the secrets of the African bush on game drives in
open 4x4 vehicles. Here the dynamic nature of the region can be experienced as the now flowing channel again is filling the marsh and with it soon will follow crocodiles and other aquatic life to this long since dry land. The Gubatsa Hills shelter Leopard and Klipspringer
and contain rock paintings of early man's wildlife encounters.
Savute Safari Lodge offers daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles in the
Savute area of the Chobe National Park, including the Savute Marsh and a visit
to Gubatsa Hills and ancient San rock paintings.
Dry season game viewing concentrates on Savute's
famous resident bull Elephants, antelope and Lion prides around half-empty
pans and permanent waterhole's. Black-backed Jackal, Bat-eared Fox, Tsessebe,
Kudu, Impala, Giraffe and Ostrich abound. The summer rains bring a feast
for Lion, Hyena and Cheetah as thousands of migrating Zebra and Wildebeest
assemble in a chaotic pattern on the Savute Marsh. Buffalo herds arrive
and migrant birds swell Savute's resident population of over 300 species.
Carmine Bee-eaters perch on the backs of Kori Bustards and Redcrested
Korhaans plummet from the sky in daring acrobatic mating displays.
In the evening, the sun sets behind flocks of Marabou Storks roosting in the
bare trees and the Woodland Kingfishers sing you to sleep on moonlit nights.
