Desert & Delta Safaris – Annual Maintenance

Savute-Safari-Lodge-Wildlife-Viewing sml

Each year Desert & Delta Safaris closes its camps in February for an annual maintenance and general up keep. This year we have extended the closure dates of Camp Xakanaxa & Savute Safari Lodge for some exciting refurbishments at both lodges.

Camp Xakanaxa
Camp Xakanaxa has commenced refurbishment to all 11 luxury tents during the existing extended closure and will be reopening on the 1st March 2019.

The refurbishment will include a fresh canvas wrap, some new furnishings and a retouch of existing decor. While the room refurbishment will create significantly more space to the interiors, it will still be aligned with the authentic intimate camp style that Camp Xakanaxa has successfully maintained for so many years.

We will also be including a family tent, which has two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable lounge and a private deck area. There is also an additional sleeper couch in the second bedroom to cater for families with three children.

Savute Safari Lodge
Extensive refurbishments to the main public areas overlooking the channel & waterholes are taking place during the extended closure period this January – March 2019.

The concept of the new areas is to make best use of the space in-front of the Savute channel and active waterhole. The new facilities will include a relocation of the swimming pool to a more private space facing the channel, new walkways, multiple dining locations and new deck areas with a live cooking area for brunches and dinner.

Multiple levelled viewing decks will all be connected by walkways providing different vantage points over the waterhole where guests will have the opportunity to find their own space to admire the remarkable animal encounters that take place around the channel and waterhole.

Savute Safari Lodge is renowned for some of Africa’s most intense “in-lodge” wildlife experiences and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to make the most of this location in the upcoming refurbishment.
