Overview of Saguni Safari Lodge

Located in Botswana’s Okavango Delta with its diverse wildlife and stunning landscapes, Saguni Safari Lodge gives guests the opportunity to have the ultimate Southern Africa safari experience.

Meaning “area with abundance of game and spectacular sights” in the Bushman language, Saguni is aptly named. The lodge is nestled on an island overlooking the Mbudi Lagoon in the game-rich area of Khwai. Game drives and walks have the potential to lead you to Africa’s Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) as well as hippo, giraffe and rare African wild dog. While mokoro trips allow you to explore the waterways of the delta in these traditional dugout canoes.

Saguni guarantees an authentic African safari experience. This under-canvas lodge will have you feeling absolutely tranquil and in touch with nature from the moment you arrive.

      Forest Tent

      Sleeping under canvas in one of Saguni’s eight luxury en suite tents will have you feeling exceptionally close to nature. Set under the shade of mature trees and designed to blend into this serene setting, you will feel completely immersed in this unique landscape. Open mesh sides give you the opportunity see the many animals that call this biologically diverse area home – from the comfort of your bed. The viewing deck, surrounded by riparian trees, is an excellent place for bird-watching. The spacious en suite bathroom has double vanities and an indoor shower perfect for rinsing off after a day in bush.

      General Facilities

      With a central deck overlooking the Sable River, Saguni’s elevated viewing deck is the ideal vantage point for spotting wildlife in this game-rich area. Grab a pair of binoculars and do some bird-watching, or simply sit back and listen to the sounds of the African bush. Enjoy a picturesque delta sunset with your favourite sundowner after days of game drives, cultural visits, bush walks and mokoro excursions, taking in the blush hues before the star-filled evening sky arrives. Sunset doesn’t mean bedtime though, and the fire pit is the focal point of evening activities. Grab a chair and share stories about the day’s adventures with fellow safari-goers.
