Situated in the Eastern Caprivi of Namibia, 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 Namibian hideaway for those looking for an exclusive Chobe River experience in an area renowned for its diverse and prolific wildlife.
The Chobe River is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo and hippo, as well as dense concentrations of other wildlife – including the rare puku antelope – which come down to the river’s edge to drink, graze and hunt. Chobe Savanna Lodge is set in a classic African Savanna environment with stunning, sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the relaxed and informal 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 Facilities include a swimming pool and an open boma area on the banks of the Chobe River. A private and secluded safari experience is guaranteed as Chobe Savanna Lodge accommodates only 24 guests in beautifully furnished thatched chalets, all with private decks, an integrated bedroom and lounge area plus en-suite facilities.
All chalets are air-conditioned and have complimentary in-room mini bars. Although guests are welcome to join in the scheduled game activities, Chobe Savanna Lodge is also a wonderful venue where guests can simply take time out to watch the world go by in one of the most spectacular settings imaginable.
ACTIVITIES As a water-based lodge, guests have a choice of aquatic activities. River excursions in small, easily manoeuvrable boats are ideal for close encounters with the abundant wildlife which visits the river’s edge. Angling is also a popular pastime, with our catch-and-release fishing trips for bream or tiger fish proving to be a firm favourite with guests of all ages and nationalities. Guests hoping to experience some of the local Namibian traditions will enjoy a cultural village visit to one of the surrounding communities, where guests can observe the deep-rooted heritage of the local population.
Chobe Savanna Lodge is deeply committed to provide ongoing education to the local community, proudly assisting in preparing the younger members for their future roles as custodians of the Savanna Conservancy. This project was initiated by the local society to enable community-based natural resource legislation. By educating these young people about the immediate benefits of eco-tourism, and how to avoid the unsustainable depletion of the natural resources, Desert & Delta Safaris has helped to create a new generation of environmentally conscious citizens. The Savanna Conservancy will be part of the proposed Trans-frontier Conservation Area.
