We went on a very special, once in a lifetime safari trip, with a some special guests. This was the first camp in which we stayed. I can`t say enough about the friendliness of the people, or their amazing knowledge of the area. To see the elephants wandering casually across the river as you relax on the front porch of...

What a fabulous place to stay for a photographic trip. The e staff were friendly, unbelievably accomodating and yet very respectful. They went to great lengths to make our stay suit our photographic needs by organizing (very) early breakfasts, late brunches and an amazing boma dinner which is one of the best we have ever experienced. We stayed four nights...

The Savuti Elephant Lodge was wonderful. The food, especially the brunches, were as good as anywhere in the world. The staff was very friendly and helpful but not overdone. Our safari rides were so great and our guide, Robert, could not have been any better. He was always able to find a new animal or a new experience on each...

Our trip to the Okavango Delta with Belmond was superb in every way. The guides were all superb in the their depth of knowledge and ability to make us feel welcome. The accommodation and food was well beyond what we had expected. And even though Belmond can't control the wildlife, it was amazing to see all that we saw. Belmont...

This lodge is in a beautiful position overlooking the waterway. It maintains the extremely high standard of other lodges in the group and has the same layout except for an additional outdoor shower from which it is wonderful to view the birds. It is a bit of a drive to the game viewing areas. However, from our balcony we saw...

This is a lovely lodge and was the last place we visited on our recent trip to Botswana. The view from our room / tent was fantastic. We could sit and watch the elephants take a bath in the river right in front of us. We were lucky enough to see two prides of lions, one pride had young ones...

I wish we could stay longer at this beautiful lodge, perched high above the Savute channel that brings so much wildlife right to your doorstep. Kudu, impala, elephant and giraffe are regular sightings right in front of the lodge and if you look down to the river, huge catfish lazily swim around. We were lucky enough to see a pride...

Staff and guides were exceptional. The food was delicious, varied and plentiful. We stayed three nights in Late June and had a thoroughly great time. Our guide, Watch, made the trip for us.
