3 Nights at Savute
Savute Elephant Lodge is as lovely as the come in the bush. Chic decor of the common areas, an elephant blind and viewing deck overlooking the watering hole and luxury tents with large decks and outdoor showers. Food was great. The Bar man Zaza made sure you where never without a drink. The famous lions of Savute are on full display with huge prides and lots of sightings. The watering hole brings the elephants and more right up to the hotel. A wonderful 3 nights.
Wild and Remote!
Our last stay of the three Belmond Lodges with our 3 children was at Savute Lodge. We immediately felt like we had arrived on another planet; the camp is much more remote and wild then the others. The solitude, along with the true bush camp decor, give you the feeling that you are truly camping in the wilderness, albeit in much added luxury. The staff made us feel as if we were being welcomed home each time we arrived back at camp; Baker and Mapps run an amazing team here! The game drives are longer, as the reserve in quite large, but the wildlife is aplenty. Thanks to Sam for his relentless tracking on our last day to follow the call of a male lion and we came across him relaxing after having just feasted on a young elephant. The food was fabulous, the outdoor showers amazing and the watering hole just in front of the lodge affords you additional opportunities for wildlife viewing all day and night long! Absolutely stunning resort and amazing experience!
What can I say, Belmond Savute leaves one speechless! All the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and goes the extra mile. We had the most wonderful game drives, high tea, cocktails at sunset in the bush, to just name a few of our never to be forgotten experiences. We stayed for 2 nights, but will definitely come back for more. Everything is 5-star quality and I will definitely recommend to anyone travelling to or through Chobe National Park!! And the animals come to your front door, as the property looks out over the waterhole, which is absolutely stunning.
We had the greatest experience at this Lodge, the staff -Christian, Chief, Chef Laps, Mighty, just to name a few, treated us as if we were celebrities. And the view from your room, wow wow wow!!! Would not recommend any other Lodge in Savuti. Thanks guys, can't wait to visit your lodge again. Belmont and Staff, we wish you all the best as you deserve the best.
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 !
