Why stay here?
Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is located in the Savute area of the Chobe National Park.
A history of exploration has shaped our lodge. The Savute region has long been associated with David Livingstone, who arrived in the area in 1851 to observe and document every detail of this unrivalled wildlife spot.
What makes our corner of Chobe National Park so special? Partly for the large herds of elephant that give the lodge its name, but also for one of Northern Botswana’s greatest mysteries. Ebbing and flowing seemingly at whim, the Savute Channel lay dormant and dry for nearly 30 years. When it sprang back to life in 2011, it turned the parched environment into a wetland paradise, attracting a huge array of wildlife. Whether wet or dry, there’s always a rich drama of animal antics to enjoy from the exclusive vantage point of our Lodge.
We invite you to join us on a wealth of safari adventures, from early morning and afternoon game drives to forays into the bush to see ancient San Bushmen paintings and a cathedral-like baobab groveInformation
