One of the most luxurious lodges in northern Botswana, Savute Elephant Camp is situated within the Chobe National Park, on the banks of the Savuti Channel. The camp, sometimes referred to as the elephant capital of the world, is positioned to take advantage of great views across the channel as elephants come down to drink in the late afternoon at an adjacent waterhole just meters away from the camp’s main building.

Savute Elephant Camp is the best place to stay if you want to see elephants, as well as a huge diversity of other wildlife and some of the most unusual lions in the world! With a friendly and helpful team, and substantial, luxurious rooms featuring air conditioning, satellite TV, and WiFi, Savute Elephant Camp can make a great choice for those who like their creature comforts.

The 12 luxury tented rooms of Savute Elephant Lodge feature four-poster canopy beds with mosquito netting, wooden writing desks, and en-suite bathrooms with shower, double sink and a dressing area, all contained in classic, light-colored canvas walls beneath a thatched roof. Glass doors open to a large private veranda furnished with lounge chairs for your midday siesta or watching animals wandering past the lodge as you relax in between activities. Every tent also features air conditioning, mosquito netting, and a fully stocked mini-bar.

The lodge enjoys the sounds and smells of the wild while also providing a comfortable, elegant interior with climate control, room-to-room telephones, and Wi-Fi for your convenience. The lodge has a beautifully decorated central lounge and open-air dining area, an outdoor traditional boma for al fresco dining, 20-meter swimming pool, small curio shop, reference library, and excellent cuisine.

Program

In this safari, you will experience enchanting twice-daily wildlife drives in Botswana's Chobe National Park, which is a dynamic mix of savanna dotted by rocky outcrops and marshes. You will be taken on early morning and late afternoon game drives in open game-viewing vehicles where each and every guest has a great view.

At Savute Elephant Camp you have an excellent chance of multiple sightings of four of the big five (most of the rhinos in Chobe have fallen victim to poachers), large packs of spotted hyenas and even the highly endangered wild dogs. There are thousands of zebras, who regularly migrate through the region, wildebeests, giraffes, warthogs, kudus, impalas, and cheetahs.

In addition to game drives in search of the big five, guests can enjoy lectures on the wilderness by the resident expert environmentalists, while birders could also be in for a treat: the annual migration of carmine bee-eaters passes over, with these colourful birds sometimes hitching a ride on the back of larger kori bustards. With over 450 recorded species of birds, the area is just wonderful for twitchers. You can see and hear many of them from your patio - a perfect way to start and end the day!

Included excursions

During this safari, you'll be able to visit the nearby Gubatsa Hills that shelter leopards and klipspringers, as well as a collection of incredible bushman paintings, thought to be over 1,500 years old. Unusually, these paintings are not hidden away in a cave, but are out in the open where the paint used has endured the elements all this time. Nearby is a grove of 13 giant baobab trees that are even older than the paintings! A sunset drive to see these treasures is an activity you should not miss.

Location

This safari will take place in the Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana - a dynamic mix of savanna dotted by rocky outcrops and marshes that has the highest population of elephants in Africa, numbering over 130,000. The Savute Channel is one of northern Botswana's greatest mysteries, lying dormant for more than 30 years before flowing again with the uncertainty of long-term permanence. More than 250 bird species are on view in the area, while lions, wild dogs, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and rare species such as roans and sable antelopes are also visible.
