I am constantly amazed at the level of luxury and service that these camps are able to provide in such remote locations. Savute Safari Lodge was no exception. Strategically placed overlooking waterholes, the camp has comfortable, luxurious common areas (lounge, bar, dining areas). The main dining facility is open air, looking out over the water holes as well, providing a constant source of wildlife viewing. We really enjoyed sitting and watching the animals come and go, and interact with one another. The boma area with open fire was cozy and friendly for after dinner drinks.
Our room was spacious, well equipped, spotless and very comfortable. We spent quite a bit of time on our deck overlooking a water hole, watching elephants come and go. The bathroom had a nice, spacious shower with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Laundry was taken and returned promptly, always neatly folded.
The staff at the camp are amazing. Friendly, helpful, happy, informative, they went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. We were met on arrival with hot towels and beautiful singing. We were treated to singing and dancing each evening and enjoyed it very much. Check in was quick and easy, as was check out.
Our guide, Baba, was very informative. We saw a huge variety of game and had excellent morning tea and sundowner stops.
I like these camps being all inclusive so you don't have to worry about bills and carrying too much money around. So convenient.
The food was excellent, a wide variety offered at every meal, and accompanied by nice wines in the evening.
I would recommend Savute Safari Camp very highly.
