Belmond Savute Elephant Camp, Botswana

Discerning adventurers seeking an immersive, authentic safari experience and the highest levels of luxury will find that Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge, recently benefiting from an extensive remodelling programme, now sets the standard for tented luxury and safari chic.

Harmonious setting

Twelve luxurious tented rooms, each raised on a wooden platform from which you can delight in watching elephants in their natural habitat, offer contemporary interiors in subtle earthy tones which showcase how beautifully eco-friendly design features can provide you with lavish amenities whilst being in harmony with the stunning landscape.

Indulgent pampering

With an impossibly romantic four-poster bed as its centrepiece, and in-room luxuries such as bathrobes, slippers and turn down service, not to mention a shaded outdoor lounge and a sun-soaked deck, indulgent pampering is a given here.

The dining areas are stylish and convivial spaces where you can sample the delights of delicious African dishes paired with fine wines and champagnes, and the bar area and pool invite you to unwind in restorative comfort. Savour traditional local cuisine around the Boma's dramatic fire pit whilst enjoying African music; a true celebration of African culture. For the last word in exclusivity, enjoy an intimate dinner in your suite served by your private butler.

Mesmerising wildlife

Marvelling at the wonders of nature is at the heart of your stay at Belmond. Tucked in the unique viewing hide overlooking the watering hole, you can watch hyena, elephants and cheetahs in their element.

You’ll also have the chance to spot leopards, lions, wild dogs, cheetahs and hyenas and relish glimpses of roan and rock-climbing klipspringers on exciting game drives. Chobe offers incredible stargazing; be mesmerised as you use powerful telescopes to see constellations in all their glory. Bird watching here is a revelation too and stunning wildlife is all around you.
