Enjoy water-based game viewing in a pristine wilderness that overlooks the prolific Chobe River.
Chobe Savanna Lodge sits on the northern banks of the Chobe River in Namibia, yet it is surrounded by Botswana on three sides. Chobe Savanna Lodge is nestled amidst a pristine wilderness. The only way that guests can reach the lodge is by boat, and thus there are no roads or vehicles in sight. The only sounds are those of the wild animals and birds surrounding the lodge - and there is plenty of wildlife. The area is known to be frequented by large herds of elephant, buffalo and hippopotamus. The lodge offers a 270-degree view across the part of the Chobe River known as the Puku Flats. Pukus are a rare species of antelope, which are regularly seen in this area.
Special attention is afforded to all guests of Chobe Savanna Lodge, as the lodge only has twelve luxurious chalets. Each chalet has air-conditioning, an overhead fan, a complimentary mini bar and an en suite bathroom - total comfort within the wilderness. The spacious chalets are tastefully furnished and have private decks looking out across the Chobe River.
The bar offers a wide range of beverages and is a great spot for a sundowner, offering views that you are not likely to forget. Dining is enjoyed outdoors in the open-air boma area and, adding an element of festivity, the local villagers perform traditional dances to kick off your meal. Game viewing is conducted from a boat, providing yet another experience that will stay with you for a lifetime. The lodge also offers the option of guided walks along the river with expert guides. This activity will bring you within a few paces of wild animals, but nevertheless within safe perimeters.
Chobe Savanna Lodge offers fine fishing expeditions on a catch-and-release basis. The experienced guides know exactly where to take you to battle the notorious tiger fish or catch bream. While fishing, you are immersed in this wild environment and are more than likely to be spoiled with epic sightings while waiting for that big one to take the bait. For some local insight, there are also cultural village tours that bring guests into contact with the local communities, allowing you to observe the traditional lifestyle of the Namibian people.
