View the elephants of Chobe

In the heart of the Chobe, sometimes referred to as the elephant capital of the world, Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge can be found perched on the former banks of the ephemeral Savute Channel. This camp offers a spectacular bird's-eye view of elephants in their natural habitat, with an adjacent waterhole just metres away from the camp’s main building. 

The Savute Channel’s landscape and wildlife are forever influenced by the changing of seasons, with each approaching season breathing new life into the surrounding wilderness. The nearby Gubatsa Hills are known for being a refuge to leopard and klipspringer, as well as the home to some truly remarkable rock paintings.

12 Luxury Tents are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and are shaded by a traditional African thatched roof. Each comes with an en-suite bathroom and a large private deck, furnished with easy chairs and a hammock – ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a romantic dinner. Every Tent also features air-conditioning, mosquito netting and a fully stocked mini-bar. Indulge in a complimentary breakfast at the on-site restaurant or enjoy a drink at the bar.
