Chobe Savanna Lodge sits on the northern bank of the Chobe River, deep in the Caprivi Strip, overlooking the floodplains of the Chobe National Park’s Puku Flats. This is big-game country, where large herds of elephant and buffalo make their way to the river to drink. Hippo pods claim the waters, while the rare puku antelope tentatively wander closer to graze the banks.
Hop onto one of the small, manoeuvrable boats for close-up wildlife encounters along the river’s edge. Follow your seasoned guide on a walking safari, weaving through the wilderness in search of smaller game. Canoe excursions lead down to the nearby traditional village, where guests can witness tribal African life. Birders will ruffle their tail-feathers in delight at the array of bird species inhabiting the area.
The lodge accommodates a maximum of 24 guests in Thatched Chalets, each complete with its own private viewing deck and en-suite bathroom. Furnished in a contemporary African theme, the chalets ensure privacy and comfort. The main building commands a 270-degree view over the river and park beyond and houses a lounge, library, dining room, and game-viewing bar.
