Located to the east of the Savuti Channel in the hills overlooking a great expanse of golden savannah and nearby waterhole, Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge is ideally located to explore this famously game-rich corner of the Chobe National Park. Rustically designed to echo the landscape and nearly become a treehouse for grown-ups, the lodge runs almost entirely on solar power and thus has a very low carbon footprint.
Set at the heart of Botswana’s ‘predator capital’, the lodge offers guests the chance to sit in comfort and watch animals as they come to the camp’s waterhole to drink – photographers may want to visit the hide for a closer view! Savuti is known for its large elephant population, especially in the dry season, and it forms an important migratory corridor for thousands of zebra during the summer green season. No wonder, then, that Savuti has a reputation for high-impact drama: the big cats are all present, as are large packs of spotted hyena, and wild dog are often seen. Twice daily game drives with expert guides reveal the wildlife wonders of Savuti and full day trips to explore areas further afield can be arranged.
Perfect as part of an itinerary exploring Chobe and the Okavango Delta, Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge offers intimate accommodation, excellent guides, fantastic food and friendly service.
