Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge – a tranquil tented oasis in the heart of the Savuti area of Botswana’s iconic Chobe National Park – is the perfect base for an African safari experience of a lifetime. Its hillside location offers spectacular views across the untouched African wilderness surrounding the lodge, which is perfectly located for safari trips and game drives to the world-famous Savuti channel and marsh, Harvey’s Pan, the Savuti Sand Ridge, Kudu Hills and Quarry Hill with ancient San rock art. It is fitting that this luxe little gem honours its pristine natural environment by being entirely ecofriendly: this ‘green’ safari lodge is solar-powered and self-sustaining, with just 11 luxury tented suites dotted along the hillside, each with uninterrupted views of the waterhole below, which attracts prolific game and birdlife year round.
The tented suites evoke colonial-era safari experiences with their cool canvas walls, whirling ceiling fans, romantic mosquito nets draping the king-sized beds, and private viewing balcony with breathtaking views. Attention to every detail is evident in the superbly appointed suites: expect the finest white percale cotton bed linen, down duvets, oversized pillows and showers with a magnificent bush view in the en-suite bathrooms. As well as the nine Luxury Tented Rooms, the lodge has two Luxury Family Tents that also accommodate two children in adjoining rooms furnished with twin beds.
Every minute at Ghoha Hills is one to remember: the day starts with your professional guide taking you on a morning safari or a full-day game drive with a picnic lunch in the African bush. Cool off in the heat of the day with a dip in the beautiful pool or spoil yourself with a wellness treatment. After an indulgent high tea, enjoy a guided sunset game drive, ending with sundowners at the scenic baobab site. If you prefer to relax on the thatched viewing deck overlooking the pan below, you may well spot elephant, giraffe, hippo, roan antelope, kudu, impala, buffalo or even the Ghoha pride of lions as well as spotted or brown hyena. Meals served overlooking the bush in the tranquil thatched dining area are a culinary event, with delicious fresh, locally sourced ingredients. This luxurious tented camp offers an unforgettable, truly intimate safari experience.
