Chobe Savanna Lodge Situated in the Eastern Caprivi of Namibia, on a peninsula on the northern bank of the Chobe River, Chobe Savanna Lodge overlooks the vast floodplains of the Chobe National Park’s Puku Flats. The lodge offers guests a hideaway for those looking for an exclusive Chobe River experience. The area is renowned for its diverse and prolific wildlife including the rare puku antelope.
It is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo and hippo, as well as concentrations of other wildlife which come down to the river’s edge to drink, graze and hunt. Chobe Savanna Lodge is relaxed and informal, set in a classic African Savanna environment with sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the lodge is a thatched open sided main building which features a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park.
Facilities include a swimming pool and an open boma area on the banks of the Chobe River. Chobe Savanna Lodge accommodates only 24 guests in elegantly furnished thatched chalets, all with private decks, a combined bedroom / lounge area and en-suite facilities.
All chalets are air-conditioned and have complimentary mini bars. Unlike other properties, where scheduled game activities are prioritized, we offer guests the choice of just taking “time out” or joining in on one of the many activities offered at the lodge.
Guests have a choice of boat excursions in small maneuverable boats, which are ideal for close up encounters with wildlife along the river’s edge, fishing (catch and release) for bream or tigerfish, and cultural village visits to one of the surrounding local communities, where guests can observe the deep-rooted traditional lifestyles of the local people.
Desert and Delta Safaris are proudly assisting in preparing the community for their future roles as custodians of the conservancy project, initiated by the local community, in terms of enabling community-based natural resource litigation. Our ongoing education and introduction to the immediate benefits of eco-tourism, rather than sustainable depletion of the natural resources, have led to a new generation of environmentally-conscious citizens. The Savanna Conservancy will be part of the proposed Trans-frontier Conservation Area.
Chobe Savanna Lodge forms part of the Desert & Delta Safaris’ portfolio of lodges, which include Chobe Game Lodge, Savute Safari Lodge, Xugana Island Lodge, Camp Okavango and Camp Moremi. Desert & Delta Safaris believes in sustainable, environmentally and socially conscious tourism and offers unique wildlife, nature and cultural experiences.
