Botswana’s Savute region has long been associated with some of the world’s greatest explorers, most famously David Livingstone. A spectacular new design at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge immerses you in the untamed natural surroundings of the Savute region. The lodge has been reimagined with respect for the environment, with sustainable features ranging from a state-of-the-art solar grid system and low-energy heat pumps to bamboo decking. It is here that the mysterious Savute Channel ebbs and flows seemingly at whim. Whether wet or dry, there is always a rich drama of animal antics to enjoy from the vantage point of the Lodge.
