CAMP SAVUTI

Mornings at Camp Savuti begin with an early wake up call and optional tea and coffee before heading out on game drive. During the winter months, the Savuti is very dry and and the game species tend to stick to the remaining water sources, making it easier to spot them.

After the first game drive, guests will be served breakfast at the lodge and spend midday relaxing on the deck, in the lounge, at the bar or in their rooms. Guests eat lunch at the lodge overlooking the Savuti Channel and then embark on their second game drive in the late afternoon.

This secluded lodge has a total of 7 en-suite chalets all of which are designed and built using local materials, with stones from the gorge and reeds from the river.  Each chalet is named after a bird of prey that can be seen soaring the skies. Décor is simple, yet stylish, with hints of handmade crafts and natural features, keeping in tune with its wilderness surrounds.

The lodge itself was designed to showcase the dramatic views that surround it. With its vast viewing platform, open-air bar and lounge perched over the sheer cliffs, it’s the perfect place to sit and take in Zambia’s scenic vistas. Winding stone lined pathways lead the way through the grounds from the main lodge, bar, pool and boma area around to the secluded chalets.
