Belmond Savute Elephant Camp

Chobe National Park

Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge lies on the banks of the river in the heart of the Chobe National Park in Botswana. As well as the finest accommodation, this luxury boutique safari camp has a delightful swimming pool and a traditional Boma.

The lodge provides twelve elegant and spacious thatched roof tents built on raised wooden platforms. Each room features safari-chic décor, a four-poster bed, an outdoor shower and an expansive private deck with uninterrupted views of the savannah.

Sample signature African dishes prepared by the talented chefs pair with fine wines and champagnes. During the cooler season or in wet weather, meals are enjoyed under cover but still in full view of the reserve’s abundant wildlife.

Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is a magnet for wildlife and the highlight is the game drives, where you get the chance to spot the Big 5. After a packed day, cool off in the pool, enjoy a drink under the stars around the campfire, or relax in the privacy of your room.

Why we recommend Belmond Savute Elephant Camp

Belmond Savute Elephant Camp, Chobe National Park, Botswana

One of the most luxurious lodges in Chobe National Park, Botswana, Belmond Savute Elephant Camp blends beautifully into the surrounding bush with canvas walls, light wood and eco-friendly bamboo decking. Both the camp and the Savuti area shine during the winter months from June to October when the dry landscapes attract large herds of elephant and buffalo, and there’s a particular reputation for lions, leopards and wild dogs. The famed Savuti Marshes were a focus in the National Geographic documentary Savage Kingdom.
