Close enough to walk to the Zoo, but far enough for a great peaceful sleep. Rooms are generously sized with ensuite bathrooms and a guest kitchen on the main floor. The breakfast is advertised as basic, but between the fruit, banana bread, toast and cook-your-own eggs, we were happily fed til midday. Richard showed us around their filming studio, let... More

Richard and Carol Foster provided the most interesting and enjoyable stay that I had in Belize. They are successful British wildlife videographers and are willing to share fun and interesting stories with you about their work. Additionally, Richard showed us some of his wildlife setups that he keeps on the grounds. The breakfast was great (eggs, lime juice, banana bread,... More

We stayed several nights at Savanna..near the beginning and again near the end of our 5wks in Belize. The wonderful warmth and charm of the place was only upstaged by hosts Richard and Carol. Their genuine love of nature, their humor, talent and experiences call us back to Savanna and Belize. We will return.

But if we would have knew about this place before we definetely would have stayed longer. The Rooms are wonderful, spacious, large and beautifully furnished for a very... More

Richard knows his stuff about nature in Belize! The place was a bit primitive, as expected, but comfortable and clean. Perfect location for doing the night tour at the zoo and then cave tubing the next day. Breakfast was good too. We would definitely choose to stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the guest house for one night at the beginning of our Belize trip, and we were both really sad to leave this place. We had the pleasure and privilege to meet and chat with Richard, who with his wife Carol is a wildlife film maker team. Along with all the fascinating tales of travels,... More

This is a truly unusual B and B. Physical conditions are good, spacious, clean and comfortable although not luxurious. But the real charm of the place is in the generous hospitality of the hosts, Richard and Carol Foster. They go out of their way to ensure their guests have a wonderful stay. They shared with us their fascinating life as... More

I can reiterate many of the previous reviews. This was probably our favourite place we stayed in Belize. Richard the owner regailed us with tales of filming in the jungle whilst letting us come with him to feed the crocs and the 'cats'. The rooms were beautiful. This is a wildlife lovers paradise. Only about a mile or so from... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two teenage daughters, and our room was very comfortable with a double bed and two singles. we enjoyed our... More

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
