Our stay here was one of the highlights of the whole Belize trip. The bus from Dangriga dropped us off outside Belize Zoo and we didn't know what to expect. Richard picked us up and took us back to Savanna and we loved it right from the get-go. This place was built by the Fosters with living in the tropics... More

Run by Richard & Carol, both wildlife film makers, it is a lovely guest house with cooking facilites etc. Rooms are large and clean, with hammocks and places to hang out.

Great night's stay at the Savanna Guest House, on our way from Belize airport to rainforest. We happily learned about Richard and Carol Foster's contribution to nature and wildlife photography/videography. Accommodations are really lovely - very comfortable, rustic and authentic. Richard drove us to and picked us up from Cheers for a wonderful dinner. Loved the pond with on-site crocodiles... More

We were greeted by the owner Richard upon arrival. It is a lovely place! The rooms are clean and tidy, very unique. You have a feeling of sleeping as close to nature without actually camping. There is a full kitchen below where we were greeted with fresh coffee, delicious homemade banana cake, freshly slice fruit and fresh eggs. We already... More

If you love nature, you will love Savanna Guest House. Conveniently located one half mile from the incredible Belize Zoo, the guesthouse is a true find. The accommodations are not fancy, but the rooms are spacious, attractive and clean. Their is a large communal kitchen where breakfast is offered daily. Guests are welcome to fresh lime juice, tea and coffee... More

We can not find much about our extended trip to Belize to fault, it was an amazingly wonderful trip! The short two days we spent at the Savanna Guest House with Richard and Carol Foster, was purely marvelous, they are both wonderful hosts, and exceedingly kind and generous with their time and knowledge of Belize, the animals and the Zoo....

When booking our first night of 6 weeks in Central America I looked for something quiet as I felt it was best to get some peace before embarking on our journey. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The accommodations were pretty and comfortable and Richard and his wife Carol were lovely. Richard not only shuttled us to... More

The Guest House is located on the Savanna approx 40 min from the Airport. We had six in our party and we had the run of the house. We stayed the night before we had scheduled a VIP tour at the Zoo and it was very convenient. Richard and Carol are wonderful hosts and spent time with us and providing... More

What a great find - small and charming guest house run by natural history film makers Carol and Richard Foster. Felt privileged to stay there and to hear their stories (and to watch a couple of their acclaimed films in the well-stocked communal lounge/kitchen area). Stayed there with family after day out zip lining and cave tubing fairly close by.... More
