Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge, Savuti Area, Botswana

Our rating: Deluxe

Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is located in the Savute area of the Chobe National Park.

Perched on the banks of the Savute Channel, the camp offers a spectacular view of elephants in their natural habitat from the main building. This is a luxurious lodge with 12 huge chalets dotted along the channel and around the bush. Each chalet is huge and raised on large decks. Inside there are large beds, armchairs, writing desks, air-conditioning, a dressing room and en suite bathroom with double shower. The rooms are decorated with beautiful dark wood furniture and white linen and all have spacious outdoor showers. The enormous decks at each chalet have a hammock, a sun lounger and a table with chairs, where afternoons can be spent relaxing out of the sun with a cool drink from the minibar.

In the center of lodge, the bar, lounge and dining room stand under a huge canvas roof with open sides. Around this is a veranda overlooking the large 20-metre swimming pool. Most meals are held in this main area or in the boma and it is delightful having the many staff singing between your courses. The lodge also offers Internet access for guests, as well as high-powered telescopes for star gazing.
