Honestly this is an oasis in the middle of Chobe. The tents here are unlike any tents I have seen before - and actually more like a full on house! Gorgeous outdoor shower, the comfiest bed I’ve ever slept on ANYWHERE, and a lovely and sprawling balcony to take in the waterhole full of elephants just below. Fantastic staff and fantastic food - and a relaxing setting to take it all in. But the highlight has to be our incredible guide Robert - this guy knows everything there is to know about the area. He is kind and thoughtful and will go out of his way to ensure you have the best trip. I can’t thank you guys enough for an unforgettable experience !
We stayed at all 3 Belmond camps and this was by far the best. Everyone here was so welcoming, the camp itself is first class and this created a fantastic experience. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by numerous animals at the watering hole - were shown to a fantastic room, offered welcoming drinks all of which set the tone for our stay - Our driver, JR was fantastic and fun, making each drive an adventure....the scenery here is just beautiful and vast, we learnt a lot and saw everything you could want including two stunning prides....we loved this camp and really did have the time of our lives...highly recommended.....
Not what I expected
Cool that they have an elephant waterhole right in front of their property where guests could enjoy viewing them while sipping their drinks. However, besides that we weren't too impressed of the how the lodge was run. You have the staff (from kitchen etc) hanging at the bar area having a conversation and having drinks too made it a little awkward for the rest of us around the lounge area. Food too could really use a lot of improvement. Hard after coming from Mombo Camp to this.
Amazing Honeymoon with the team at Savute Elephant Lodge!
My husband and I had the opportunity to visit this lodge at start of our 2-week African honeymoon. We stayed 4 nights and had the most amazing experience. The staff were warm, friendly and incredibly attentive. We felt at home. Our guide, DK, was a joy to spend time with every day and even drove us on a huge adventure to another lodge so we could see some hippos. She was incredible! The rooms were beautiful and well appointed, clean and felt luxurious. The dining spaces and bar were luxurious. The only reason for the 4 and not a 5 is the food. The food was fine, but not great. Plus - get some yummy coffee!!
What an amazing time!
I couldnt believe it - we overlooked a watering hole with elephants just in front of our lodge! The first time in Botswana and not the last! An air conditioned tent with all facilities; wonderful staff; an amazing guide - thank you JR - and a really great and fun atsmosphere there. We had an amazing time and saw lots of animals and learned a lot!
