Safari Experience At Chobe Savanna Lodge
Chobe’s wildlife roams in abundance and diversity and is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. During the dry season these large herds, as well as vast herds of buffalo, congregate along the fertile flood plains of the Chobe River where they come to drink, bathe and play. Sightings of lion, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope are frequent reported in the area. The lodge offers guests a Namibian hideaway for those looking for an exclusive Chobe River experience in an area renowned for its diverse and prolific wildlife. The Chobe River is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo and hippo, as well as dense concentrations of other wildlife – including the rare puku antelope – which come down to the river’s edge to drink, graze and hunt. Chobe Savanna Lodge is set in a classic African Savanna environment with stunning, sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the relaxed and informal lodge is a thatched open-sided main building which features a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park.
Activities At Chobe Savanna Lodge
As a water-based lodge, guests have a choice of aquatic Botswana Safaris activities. River excursions in small, easily maneuverable boats are ideal for close encounters with the abundant wildlife which visits the river’s edge. Angling is also a popular pastime, with our catch-and-release fishing trips for bream or tiger fish proving to be a firm favorite with guests of all ages and nationalities. Guests hoping to experience some of the local Namibian traditions will enjoy a cultural village visit to one of the surrounding communities, where guests can observe the deep-rooted heritage of the local population. The lodge is also deeply committed to provide ongoing education to the local community, proudly assisting in preparing the younger members for their future roles as custodians of the Savanna Conservancy. This project was initiated by the local society to enable community-based natural resource legislation. By educating these young people about the immediate benefits of eco-tourism, and how to avoid the unsustainable depletion of the natural resources, the lodge has helped to create a new generation of environmentally conscious citizens. The Savanna Conservancy will be part of the proposed Trans-frontier Conservation Area.
