Everything from our welcome on arrival, accommodation and game drives was a really special experience. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The staff were friendly and efficient, food was good and game drives superb - the setting of the camp also added to a wonderful experience.

This was our second camp whilst on Honeymoon in Botswana. The staff meet us with a friendly welcome and were always on hand to answer questions and chat to us. The rooms were great and we could see elephants coming to the water all day and night from the viewing deck and from our bedroom balcony. The food was delicious and the game drives were amazing. We saw the most game of our time in Botswana in Savute and around the Marsh. Our ranger was knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommended!

Wow again. Another great place from the Desert & Delta Safaris. This was our third place with them and as the other two (see my reviews about Chobe Game Lodge and Moremi Camp) it was wonderful. The food, the rooms, game drives and more than anything the people that helps and gives you a wonderful services. We will never forget them.
We will don't think in another company the next time we'll travel to Botswana.
And the game drives were great. Leopards, wild dogs, lions and the elephants always in front of your room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in front of the wáter hole.

I have just returned from an African safari which included 3 nights at Savute Safari lodge. I travelled with four others and this was our second lodge. We could not believe the number and variety of animals we saw here. Starting on the ride from the airstrip we saw elephants, giraffes and more! The food was wonderful, the staff were warm and fun and kind, each and every day!
It was such a thrill to see a lioness begin to hunt a warthog. Although she stopped it was simply amazing to watch her begin the hunt. Also, I could not have been happier when we saw a pack of wild dogs. As they are endangered it was all the more wonderful to be 10 feet from this amazing animal. Many thanks to our guide Metal. His knowledge of the area and animals is immense. We shall never forget the people or the adventures at this wonderful lodge.
Thanks to all at Savute!

What a welcome! We arrived in a small aircraft with an ostrich racing the plane down the runway. Before we made it to the lodge we had already seen elephants, antelope and giraffe. We were then greeted by the best guide ever, Baba. He was amazing! His ability to track animals was unbelievable. He truly wanted your experience to be the best ever and totally succeeded in doing so. The rooms were large, very well appointed and have perfect positioning for all day game viewing. There were always animals around. The elephants would come down to the river each evening and play in the water. Amazing! The food and service were an added plus. I would highly recommend this lodge. What an experience!

Room Tip: Rooms 7 and 8 have a water hole out in front of their deck where the animals pass by each day. I wo...

Our first ever safari and our second camp. Our first camp set the bar so high so it was hard to live up to that. But, once we got settled in, we loved our time here. "Tent" was specutular! Spacious and so comfortable. Food excellent. We had our BEST bouma experience here. The staff was great too. Game drives took much more time to find the animals than in our first camp, but we had been used to seeing something within 5 minutes. But our great guide Willie, did a great job to find us the wild dogs and we were the only group to find the black Rhino in the "wild". We especially loved the meals with the staff and the stories. Loved the hot water bottles with the panchos when we left in the cool AM off on game drive. What a nice suprise that was. Great staff, great room. Also one day we wanted to stay out longer in the AM game drive and not do a PM game drive and then met us out in the bush with a fabulous lunch just for our group. We would definatley recommend staying here.
