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.
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.
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.
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.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
