Botswana's Chobe National Park is a dynamic wilderness. A sweeping expanse of savannah is dotted by rocky outcrops surrounding a marsh and the Savute Channel. Unpredictable wet and dry cycles shape the landscape and wildlife. The Savute Channel flows again after nearly 30 years of lying dormant, but will still dry up from time to time without warning. It has become one of Northern Botswana’s greatest mysteries where Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is set. The Gubatsa Hills shelter leopard and klipspringer, with rock paintings depicting early man's animal encounters.


Set among towering acacia trees on the banks of the meandering, intermittent Savute Channel in the southern swath of world-renowned Chobe National Park in Botswana, best known for fantastic year-round game viewing, large herds of elephant that roam the plains and unstinting luxury.


12 rooms raised on wooden platforms has an outdoor lounge and is shaded by a traditional thatch roof, serviced with both Wi-Fi and air conditioning. The large, private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock. These are ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy. Luxurious room interior include a four-poster bed complete with mosquito netting, lavishly appointed bathroom and dressing room, a fully-stocked minibar and discreet air conditioning. The Lodge also has its own 20 meters long swimming pool and tailor-made spa for which guests are offered alfresco treatments here or on their own private decks, using products derived from local plants.
