the last time I was in the Savute area, the Savute Channel was a dry river bed. Since 2008 due to tectonic movement, the river is flowing again and it flows right past Savute Safari Lodge. From a location point of view it just does not get any better. At any one time there could be upwards of twenty elephants cavorting around in the river or at the watering hole which is a few meters in front of the lodge. The rooms are beautifully done. They are massive and they are private. MK and Michelle are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Great rangers overall. While sitting around the fire in camp one evening we had a leopard in the tree not even 10 meters away from us. She was trying to get at the sleeping guineafowl. She then decided to go and lie on the deck of room number 7. Awesome sight! Then a porcupine decided to saunter down onto the deck where we were sitting :)
The food was exceptional and the game viewing was great. Saw a gazillion elephants, leopard, lions, plenty general game. Also good to see a different eco system and the site where Seretse Khama decided that conservation was the way for a sustainable future for Botswana
