      The History

      When David Livingstone explored the area in 1851 he described the Savute as a marsh. Since then, the Channel alternates between flowing free and drying up. This part of the National Park has been prohibited for humans for decades—save for the area around our lodge. The position is unrivalled; nature’s drama played out on your own private stage.
