Savute is a great location. Water from the Okavango Delta rarely fills the Savute channel and the challenging environment produces prides of lions that attack and kill elephants and leopards that attack and eat fish. We saw lots of game, including lions but no leopards and no rhinos.
The staff, guides and food at the lodge were very good. Unfortunately for us, it was still hot in early April. While the suites have a ceiling fan over the bed and another floor stand fan, the power is shut off between 10:30 pm and 5 am. Going to sleep in the heat with no fan is not fun. It usually cooled off by the morning but we were getting up at 5:30 am for the early game drive. Perhaps we've gotten wimpy in our old age, but the heat really detracted from our enjoyment of this experience.More
