Situated on the banks of the Savute Channel, Savute Safari Lodge’s expansive glass sliding doors and upstairs viewing decks provide excellent views of the Channel and surrounds. Since it began flowing again in 2009, the Channel has once again pumped life into the Western Chobe National Park.
Accommodation consists of 12 timber and glass chalets, each with cool thatch, en suite bathroom facilities and private viewing deck. In the main area, the lounge and cocktail bar boasts an inviting fireplace while the dining room caters for atmospheric candelabra lit dinners. The camp’s plunge pool and sun deck provides cool relief during the hot midday hours as well as a great vantage point from which to observe animals at the nearby waterhole.
Game highlights include large concentrations of Lion and Hyena, as well as Leopard, Cheetah, Blackbacked Jackal and many lone Elephant. Activities include game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles in the Savute area, including the Savute Marsh, and a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills.
Savute lays claim to the second biggest summer zebra migration in Africa, which general occurs between November and December and again between February and April when they 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.
