We stayed at Savute for 3 nights whch the last place we stayed. We were greeted warmly by Michelle one of the managers.
The room we had was fantastic very spacious, clean and luxurious. Our room over looked the water hole and it was great to watch the elephants every day come to drink as well as other animals.
The food was excellent and plentiful. All the staff were helpful and friendly.
Our guide Baba was great, always smiling and had a good sense of humour.
The team at savute managed by Michelle and MC were a great team. Would recommend this place without a doubt.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was the last stop in our 15 day-trip to Africa. We simply loved this place! The room was big and the view of the waterhole was amazing! we had elephants drinking water all day long. The service, the food and the staff were fantastic!

We stayed in Botswana for 10 days and during that time spent 2 nights at each of the Orient Express Lodges. This was our third camp and and just fantastic. After more than 25 years water was flowing in the Savute channel. Elephants were always roaming around and cooling off in the water and one afternoon one walked practically up to the tent deck whilst I was laying in the hammock. When we arrived there was a huge hippo in the water hole and the whole day there was always some animal activity taking place. The viewing was fantastic, large herds of elephants, huge kudu, leopards, also with cub, cheetah, wild dogs, just incredible!!!
The accommodation comprises of luxury tents which are on raised wooden platforms with decks for private viewing but they still manage to keep up the charm and atmosphere of a bush camp. As the tents have the same set up as the other camps we felt straight away at home.The tents are well planned with ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. They are kept very clean and the staff are efficient and very friendly. The food was delicious and a good variety was offered.
Chantelle, Steve & Phet, our hosts at Savute, gave us lots of infromation and made our stay one which will be long remember and talked about. Also Sello, our guide and tracker who was very experienced and knowledgeable made it possible for us to have such fantastic sightings. He really had the Hunters instincts which are a necessity in this game.
Thanks for a super time.

This was the last stop on our safari to Botswana, and the highlight of the trip. We just loved the room which had a waterhole meters from the front deck. Elephant would spend the whole day and into the night drinking outside. We really didn't need to leave our room to see wildlife it was literally on our doorstep.
The service was once again fantastic, all members of staff were friendly and made you feel special.
Our guide was Metal, who kept us entertained on our game drives, with stories about the history of land, the animals, the plants and even the weather. Metal was extremely considerate of everyone and was a wealth of knowledge.
A very BIG thank you to the staff at Savute, especially, Setch, John and Metal. You will always have a special place in our hearts and we hope that one day we will be able to return.
We booked our trip through Safari Online and would definitely use them again, we would not hesitate to recommend them. Our transfers went without any problems and all our lodges were first class.

This was our first trip so we were amazed when it went way beyond our expectations. SSL is a magical place where you go on exciting game drives with top notch guides and come back to the enchantment of watching elephants at play in the channel outside the dining room deck. We watched from the deck our own room as all kinds of animals came to drink day and night. Kim, Shane and the staff tend to your every need and create a place where you feel welcomed and cared for. They share the culture and history with you and are dedicated to preserving the animals and this marvelous opportunity .
