Savute Safari lodge is situated on the banks of the ephemeral Savute Channel which stretches from the Linyanti River to the Savute Marsh, and is perfectly positioned for wildlife viewing. The area has plenty of big game, particularly during the zebra migration between November and December and again between February and April.
Comfortable accommodation is provided for a maximum of 24 guests in just 11 thatched chalets and one two-bedroom family unit. All are constructed from local timber and feature rustic “safari chic” decor. A double-storey main building houses a lounge and library with plenty of comfortable seating, whilst outside, there is an al fresco dining area, shaded viewing deck and a swimming pool surrounded by sun lounges. Enjoy ice-cold refreshments here in the afternoon and watch the resident wildlife – including many elephant – come down to the waterway for a drink.
Game drives in open 4WD vehicles are the primary activity available at Savute Safari Lodge, with many trips visiting the teeming Savute Marsh. In summer, the Savute hosts the second-largest zebra migration in Africa, with an impressive array of predators following in the herds’ wake. It’s also possible to visit San rock paintings in the Gubatsa Hills, the only raised landmark in a predominantly flat landscape.
