Let's Safari Together

A timeless explorer’s lodge that beats with the pulse of wild Africa

Beside the mysterious Savute Channel, this tented oasis is the perfect base to discover the wonders of Chobe National Park

Let's Africa Together

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.
