Savute Elephant Lodge, A Belmond Safari, Botswana


A boutique luxury safari lodge, set on the banks of the beautiful Savute Channel.

In the heart of the world-famous Chobe National Park, this intimate Belmond property sits perched on the banks of the Savute Channel. Following a complete rebuild in 2018, this stylish safari lodge now features new additions that include a luxury spa, stunning firepit, and an elevated viewing hide that overlooks the watering hole adjacent to the lodge. Make the most of this wildlife-rich haven and explore the Chobe area on morning and afternoon game drives with the lodge’s expert guides and trackers. When not out and about on safari, unwind beside the deck pool, explore a nearby baobab grove, or visit the ancient Bushmen paintings that are more than 1500 years old. 

You’ll feel closer to nature than ever when relaxing in the lodge’s outdoor Boma, an enchanting open-air setting with a nightly campfire. Enjoy a unique African dining experience, savouring the finest local flavours and signature dishes while you watch traditional songs and dance performed by the staff. For a more intimate dining experience, the lodge can also arrange a meal on your own private deck, complete with a sumptuous wine list and the services of a private butler.

Built on raised wooden platforms, each of the tented rooms overlook breathtaking vistas of the surrounding plains. Offering luxurious comfort combined with a contemporary, Botswanan flair, inside stylish interiors include a netted four-poster bed and generous en-suite bathroom, while outside private showers and open-air sitting rooms offer uninterrupted views of the wild surrounds.
