CHOBE SAVANNA LODGE - EAST CAPRIVI, NAMIBIA
Situated in the Eastern Caprivi of Namibia, on a peninsula on the northern bank of the Chobe River, Chobe Savanna Lodge overlooks the vast floodplains of the Chobe National Park's Puku Flats. The lodge offers guests a hideaway for those looking for an exclusive Chobe River experience. The area is renowned for its diverse and prolific wildlife including the rare puku antelope. It is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo and hippo, as well as concentrations of other wildlife which come down to the rivers edge to drink, graze and hunt. Chobe Savanna Lodge is owned and operated by Desert & Delta Safaris.

Chobe Savanna Lodge is relaxed and informal, set in a classic African Savanna environment with sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the lodge is a thatched open sided main building which features a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park. Facilities include a swimming pool and an open boma area on the banks of the Chobe River.

Chobe Savanna is relaxed and informal, set in a classic African savanna environment with sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the lodge is a thatched open-sided main building which commands a 270-degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park. Located in the main building are the lounge, dining room and bar, all furnished with African-style décor in dark teak wood, perfectly blending with the environment.

The lodge accommodates just 24 guests in stylish thatched chalets, each with private deck, a combined bedroom / lounge area and en-suite bathrooms. All rooms are furnished in subtle earth tones and dark woods in a contemporary African theme, are air conditioned, and have complimentary mini bars and overhead ceiling fans.

The charm of Chobe Savanna Lodge, with its sweeping views and wide vistas, lies in its beauty, tranquility and peaceful atmosphere, far from the crowds of large cruise boats and game drive vehicles. The emphasis here is on complete relaxation and solace. Unlike other properties, wherein regimented game activities are prioritized, Chobe Savanna Lodge offers guests the choice of just taking 'time out' or joining in on one of the many safari activities offered at the lodge.  Depending upon the time of year, guests are also able to take a canoe excursion along the river.

Facilities include an open-air swimming pool with a beautiful sun deck and an open boma area on the banks of the Chobe River where guests are treated to panoramic views and traditional dancing performed by local villagers.

Your stay at Chobe Savanna Lodge is inclusive of accommodation, all meals, local branded drinks, complimentary mini bar in room, scheduled activities and laundry service.

Children
The lodge accepts children of all ages. No childcare/baby-sitters are provided for at any of our properties. Children must be under the care of their parents at all times. No children to share in the Chobe Game Lodge or Camp Okavango suites. Children aged 16 yrs (inclusive) & younger to share with a parent at all times. PRIVATE ACTIVITIES have to be booked for families with children younger than 6 years old at an additional rate, subject to availability.

Chobe Savanna Lodge can only be accessed by boat transfer from Kasane, which is accessed by a two-hour road transfer from Victoria Falls or Livingstone, or via Maun by charter aircraft. Please note that the Namibian Border closes at 16:00 and all guests arriving off scheduled flights into Livingstone or Victoria Falls and transferring to Chobe Savanna Lodge should therefore arrive no later than 13:00.

Activities
Guests have a choice of boat excursions in small maneuverable boats, which are ideal for close up encounters with wildlife along the rivers edge, fishing (catch & release) for bream or tigerfish, and cultural village visits to one of the surrounding local communities, where guests can observe the deep-rooted traditional life styles of the local people.

Wildlife
Chobe's Puku Flats are renowned for its diverse and prolific wildlife, including the rare Puku antelope. It is also home to large herds of Elephant and Buffalo, large numbers of Hippo, as well as concentrations of Giraffe, Sable, Wild Dog, Lion and the other predators which come down to the river to drink, graze and hunt. This area is an untouched water wilderness sanctuary, ideal for quiet discovery, where game and bird life flourish undisturbed under the protection of the Chobe National Park.

Conservation and Community
Desert & Delta Safaris are proudly assisting in preparing the community for their future roles as custodians of the conservancy project, initiated by the local community, in terms of enabling community based natural resource legislation. Our ongoing education and introduction to the immediate benefits of eco-tourism, rather than unsustainable depletion of the natural resources, have led to a new generation of environmentally conscious citizens. The Savanna Conservancy will be part of the proposed Trans-frontier Conservation Area.
