Saguni Safari Lodge
Lodge style Tented lagoon haven
Mid-range Khwai experience
Saguni Safari Lodge is situated in Moremi East (Khwai) in Botswana. It is nestled in an island of mature trees, typical of the eastern Greater Okavango Delta. Saguni overlooks a lagoon, in an exceptionally wildlife-rich area. The name ‘Saguni’ is a bushman name for Khwai, meaning "an area with abundance of game and spectacular sights". Yes, we can assure you that your stay at Saguni will be spectacular in every aspect. The lodge bar is well positioned and allows uninterrupted views of the lagoon. Here you can experience an unforgettable Moremi sunset, whilst enjoying your favourite sundowner (we suggest a crisp G&T, of course), watching the colours intensify long after the sun has set.
Saguni Safari Lodge consists of nine (standard) forest tents and eight luxury river tents. Each tent is spacious and furnished in a classic safari style ensuring that time between activities is spent in absolute comfort. All tents feature a luxurious en-suite bathroom and are located close to the riverfront.

Tripadvisor comments Saguni Lodge
Wow. Saguni Lodge sits on an idyllic curve in a small hippo-filled river on the Moremi reserve in Botswana. Guests sleep in very comfortable canvas chalets, raised up and with a wooden veranda at the front, with mosquito netting where you might expect glass. You are comfortable but part of the environment, which is thrilling at night as the hippos snort and belly-laugh, the hyenas yelp, elephants feed on mopani trees and in the distance, lionesses announce a successful kill. It is magical. Food and drink are good and plentiful, the camp staff most hospitable, and it was special to tell stories around the fire on the boma, drink in hand, at the end of a day’s game-watching.stuartc549
The Saguni Lodge overlooks the ‘Mbudi Lagoon’, where you experience an abundance of wild life. On the game drives we encountered impala, tsessebe, giraffe and wildebeest to elephant and buffalo herds. Red lechwe, reedbuck and waterbuck where seen closer to the water. Predators we seen include lion, spotted hyaena and African wild dog. Our driver 'Kustard' was excellent, as we did many safari drives in our countries, we realised that Kustrad is the best, not only with many years of expereince, but has developed relationships with all our safari drivers in the delta, thus communicating the area of interests thought out the drives.wiley-nt from Darwin, Australia
