Our Take on Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge
Great for at least a two-to-three-night stay. The hospitality is superb, the guiding terrific and the food is exceptional (the carrot cake is the best ever!). While the game can be scarce around the lodge itself, the Savuti Marsh is very rewarding with plenty of wildlife to be seen. Highly recommended.

Chobe National Park
The Chobe National Park is one of the most popular game reserves in Botswana. Situated in the far north of Botswana, Chobe includes the Savute and Linyanti regions which are known for high concentrations of lion and elephant. However, Chobe is best known for the Chobe River floodplain, where herds upon herds of animals gather in the dry season between June and October. The game reserve is most easily accessed from Kasane, a town just to the east of the park on the banks of the Chobe River, close to the border with Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls.
