Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge in Botswana – Good Morning!

This 1 minute video really captures the feel of a morning at Belmond’s Savute Elephant Camp…


This property has recently undergone a total rebuild and I love the new look and feel… the 12 new rooms are really stylish… having said that with 12 rooms this property is right on the edge of being too big… we find camps and lodges with 10 or fewer rooms lend themselves to guests introducing themselves to others and interacting more freely. Above 10 rooms guests start to keep more to themselves – which for some people is actually preferred! Do keep in mind activities are shared with up to 6 guests in a safari vehicle so introductions will occur sooner than later!


This is a great wildlife location however being within Chobe National Park guests are limited to day time drives (no off roading). Walking and night drives are not allowed due to park regulations. For guests who want to be able to drive off road, partake in night drives, walk, and canoe other camps such as Linyanti Bush Camp, Linyanti Ebony, Linyanti Expeditions, Selinda Explorers, Selinda, Zarafa, Kings Pool, Duma Tau, or Savute would likely be a better fit.


Also note this property is surrounded by electric fencing which keeps the animals away from the rooms…


Belmond has 3 camps / lodges in Botswana. Khwai River Lodge, Eagle Island, and Savute Elephant Camp… booked together we can get some great pricing! There are often specials as well.
