Savute River Lodge
Savute River Lodge is on the banks of Botswana’s fabled Stolen River. This 4 star African safari lodge in Botswana is in a setting of singular beauty. The now dry Savute channel is part of the dynamic Savute eco system. The eco system is renowned for its large concentration of elephant and lions. It is also famed for troubled relationship these two species.
Savute River Lodge has a signature expansive glass sliding doors and viewing decks. They were inspired by the striking panorama. When seen in the dry season, it can appear desert-like and barren beyond belief. After the rains on one of those crystal clear days across the vivid green of new grass, the impression is always the same.
