Safari

There are many ways to see the area's wondrous wildlife from Savute Elephant Lodge. In front of the lodge, there is an active waterhole where elephants and antelope, and even the occasional lion may be seen, particularly in the drier months. The viewing hide, meanwhile, will bring you to eye-level with the surrounding animal activity. Each morning and afternoon, guided game drives go in search of the large herds of elephant that the area is famous for, as well as other glorious wildlife - including the rarer species of roan and the rock-climbing klipspringer. During the rainy season months of January and February, the second largest migration of zebra in Africa passes through the Savute.

Hotel Experiences

Dating back over 1,500 years and thought to be created using snake venom, blood and plant juice, the ancient rock paintings of the San Bushmen can be visited from Savute Elephant Lodge. This fascinating excursion also visits a grove of baobab trees which are believed to be as old as the rock paintings. The remote, wide open expanses of the Savute also make it an ideal place for observing the night sky. The lodge has powerful telescopes for exploring the southern hemisphere's constellations.
