Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge

Perched high on the eastern side of the Ghoha Hills, our hilltop retreat boasts unparalleled 180 degree views across the savannah. The natural waterhole attracts wildlife year round and there's even a small waterhole in front of the lodge attracting plenty of plains game and occassional big cat activity.

Our lodge is special and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is inventive and gourmet; and high tea is always served. Much pride and care is taken in the finer details at the lodge. We preserve the surrounding area by having little impact on the environment - we run on solar power. 

Our Ghoha is luxurious, relaxed and offers year-round game viewing opportunities in the Chobe National Park.
