Full accommodation information

This luxury lodge is perched on the Savute Channel in the heart of Chobe National Park, known as the ‘elephant capital of the world’, making this the perfect location for wildlife-spotting in Botswana
 
The lodge has 12 luxury tented rooms all on raised wooden platforms, each with an en suite bathroom, four-poster bed with mosquito netting and discreet air-conditioning. Each room boasts its own deck and day bed, perfect for watching the wildlife from the privacy of your own tent. 
 
Activities here are mainly land-based and in 4x4 vehicles; in season you are taken out to see the Zebra migration or enjoy a full-day safari. There are also san bushman communities and rock paintings in the area to visit. In the evenings enjoy a traditional dining experience under the stars back at the lodge.
