Fodor's Review

As your small plane flies over this attractive lodge, you can see the wide meanders of the Savuti Channel before it melts into the Savuti marsh. The exterior of the main building and the safari suites are traditional thatch and timber; inside the recently refurbished rooms, the neutral tones of the soft furnishings complement the view outside your windows. A wall of glass patio doors leads to your oversize veranda, from which you can watch game drinking from the river in front of camp. Scrumptious late-morning brunches and candle-lit buffet dinners are served on a raised open-sided deck almost within touching distance of the gray, ghostly shapes of elephants who saunter past on their nocturnal wanderings. In winter, you will appreciate the cozy bar's open fireplace as you sip your apéritif and swap stories of the day's events.
