To ensure a private and relaxing environment, Savute Safari Lodge accommodates just twenty-four guests in twelve thatched chalets built of local timber. The chalets, which have been elegantly furnished in calm neutral tones to blend with the natural environment, feature expansive private decks, a combined bedroom and lounge area and en suite facilities.
Relax in the comfortable leather couches of the lounge as you read a book from the library or sip a cocktail from the stylish bar. Cool off with a dip in the lodge’s plunge pool or sip a cocktail on the viewing deck before moving to your own private deck to watch the sunset.
