After a warm and welcoming greeting, we were escorted to our cabin ( # 1) at Savute Safari Lodge. It really knocked our socks off! What superlative accommodation! A huge deck with views in two direction allowed us to watch the constant gathering of animals coming to drink such as elephants, zebra and cape buffalo. We spent three glorious nights at this fabulous lodge well taken care of by Ollie, Natasha, Bujos, Taz and the rest of the marvelous Savute team. Gee, our incredible guide was most knowledgeable and used his many skills to seek out our requests. We saw everything on our wish list including leopard sightings three days in a row. Some of the rare animals we sighted were side striped jackal, hyena, wild dogs, secretary birds, tsessebe and water bucks. I could go on and on.
The meals were excellently prepared with a huge variety of dishes to keep every one happy. The warm and friendly staff went out of their way to assure that any one with special food requirements were met. The staff even sang and danced for us and again I was blown away by their musical talent.
I rated the sleep quality low only because of the constant animal noises outside our room every night..... but that is the charm of Africa. It was simply a wonderful experience and one I will not forget soon. Another fabulous Desert/Delta success.
