Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge
Savute is a remote section of Chobe National Park renowned for its wildlife and high drama, with a number of famous films made in the area including Eternal Enemies: Lions and Hyenas. Lions are plentiful and are in constant competition with huge spotted hyena clans. African wild dog and cheetah often move through the area as well. In 2010 for the first time in 28 years the channel once again flows through Savuti to the Savute Marsh creating a particularly rich oasis for wildlife in this otherwise dry area.
Ghoha Hills is located about 45 minutes game drive out of the main Savute area making use of access to its own private concession giving it a more remote Savute experience than any other camp but still within easy reach of the famed Savuti Channel and Savute marsh.
The lodge is situated high up on the Ghoha Hills with spectacular views of the surrounding bush. The views are unique and awe inspiring, particularly considering that Botswana is such a flat country. The stars feel closer and more pronounced, stretching from horizon to horizon. The main area in the lodge has a thatched roof helping it blend into the surrounding hillside. The main area of the Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge includes a dining area, bar, plunge pool and curio shop.
The lodge comprises of 9 twin bedded and 2 family luxury canvas suites housed on raised wooden decks. These decks are set on ledges of Ghoha Hills offering great views of the surrounding landscape. Luxury appointed en suite bathrooms and dressing areas are a feature of each tent.
Bushman paintings are found at the eastern face of Bushman Hill, also known as Gobabis. Here, rock art that is dated to 3,000 to 4,000 years old depicts the animals found in the area: eland, elephant, sable, giraffe, puffadder, and hippo. Visits to the site are convenient from the lodge.
