The Camp

Guest accommodation

The Savute Safari Lodge can accommodate a maximum of 24 guests in 11 chalets (including a larger family chalet with two bedrooms). The luxurious accommodations are elevated and all have their own en-suite bathrooms. Each chalet also has a small private veranda with breathtaking views of the Savuti Channel and passing wildlife. The spacious chalets also have mosquito nets, sockets for charging small electrical devices, lighting and plenty of storage space.


Central facilities

The two-storey main area comprises an entrance area with a lounge, bar and library as well as an elevated viewing platform with views over the dreamlike, rugged landscape. A communal swimming pool provides cooling. The dining room is on the ground floor, where guests can eat together every day.


As a lodge guest you can go on exciting game drives in open jeeps during the day to experience the wildlife up close. If you want to immerse yourself a little deeper into the history of the region, don't miss an excursion to the ancient rock paintings of the San, the indigenous people of Botswana, near the Gubatsa Hills.



The lodge is located in the legendary Savuti region, consisting of a swamp plain and characterized by a harsh, ruggedly romantic wilderness. The region attracts a large number of wild animals, which can be admired on the offered game drives into the Savuti march or even from the own veranda. It is not uncommon to see a herd of elephants crossing the Savuti Channel directly outside the gates of the camp. And also lion sightings are not unlikely in this area due to the large population. A highlight is undoubtedly the season of herd migration, especially the zebra migration. Savute is the area with the second largest zebra herd migration in Africa. With its proximity to the Gubatsa Hills, the lodge also offers culture enthusiasts the opportunity to admire thousands of years old rock paintings by Botswana's indigenous people.



The Savute region is famous for its rich lion population as well as for the huge herd migrations, especially of zebras, which take place each year – a spectacular experience. Furthermore, on game drives into the surrounding area animals such as elephants, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, hippos, giraffes, various antelope species and in rare cases wild dogs can be observed. Elephant sightings in particular can often be made directly from the tent's own veranda, as a small herd has its habitat in the camp's region and passes by there again and again.
