Breathlessly captivating, this corner of Botswana has long been associated with the world’s greatest explorers, including David Livingstone. Follow in their footsteps at Savute Elephant Lodge. Head out to our unique viewing hide at dusk or dawn, overlooking the watering hole, and see elephants, hyenas and cheetahs in their element. Then find a serene welcome back at the lodge. The contemporary interiors reflects the earthy tones of the wilderness, while eco-friendly design features keep you in harmony with the stunning landscape.
Raised on wooden platforms, each tented room affords breath taking vistas across the shifting ecosystem. An outdoor lounge offers post-safari relaxation as giant bullfrogs croak within earshot. Or recline deck-side on your lounger; big game frequently mingles in full view at the adjacent watering hole. Inside, luxurious interiors feature a netted four-poster bed and lavish bathroom. A fully-stocked minibar and discreet air conditioning refresh and revive.
When David Livingstone explored the area in 1851 he described the Savute as a marsh. Since then, the Channel alternates between flowing free and drying up. This part of the National Park has been prohibited for humans for decades—save for the area around our lodge. The position is unrivalled; nature’s drama played out on your own private stage.
