    We weren't even guests of this resort (we stayed at SLK) but needed some help. When we dropped by Lindsey was very warm and welcoming. Very much appreciate the help out in the deep, deep bush when there are a lot of options!

    Our family of four stayed at this lodge as well as Belmond Eagle Island. This is definitely the poor relation in that it has not been refurbished in some time I would say. Nevertheless, it's got a lovely feel, the rooms are big and the...More

    Dear PerthKerry, Thank you for your review and we agree that the game viewing at Savute is excellent, so much so that Nat Geo Wild filmed a documentary "Savage Kingdom' about the predators in the area, and has been nominated for a few awards too!...More
