Just returned from 4 day trip at Savanna Private Game Reserve. Cannot speak highly enough about our stay. Thank you Neil Whyte​ for far exceeding our expectations on our game drives. We saw the big 5 and much, much more! We would also like to make mention of the hospitality afforded to us by Natasha and Lindley. The accommodations and... More

This was a wonderful experience. The safari rides in the bush were spectacular, surreal and exciting. The guide (Neil) and the tracker (Abraham) were professional as well as friendly. The close contact with magnificent wild animals in an open truck was breathtaking. The lodge accomadations were truly five star. Food and service were perfect.

Unforgetable experience at an amazing lodge facility. The game reserve experience is always special, but Savanna takes it to another level. You can easily spot the big 5 in two rides (or one), walking safari's also available. Best service possible, amazing meals experience, wine. Can't go wrong here.

Everyone needs to put an African safari near the top of their bucket list and you can save a lot of time pouring over all of the options and just book Savannah Game Reserve. Accommodations are top quality. Our lodge had its own pool, outdoor showers, a massive bathroom with a tub that was filled while on the evening drive,... More

Every aspect of Savanna is stunning. Our room #8 was beyond incredible with the large bedroom, bathroom, and patio area with a private plunge pool overlooking a watering hole that was visited by a herd of elephants and two rhinos. The room is stocked with everything you could possibly need including travel adapters, bug spray, and the most fully stocked... More

There is nothing negative I can say about this place. Absolutely nothing was a problem for the staff. From the chef, butler, driver and tracker and everyone else, this was a trip of a life time. It is too hard to put into words this experience, you have to do it yourself. To see the big five game animals and... More

We visited Savanna for five days and loved every minute. Every staff member treated us like family, being there for anything we needed. Food- awesome! Services-amazing! Love this place!! The game drives were amazing, we saw the big five in less than 2 hours of our first game drive.

This amazingly place has a special place in my heart. The memories and experience are out of this world. The catering, the accommodation and the staff are just everything that you could hope for. The game sightings are just absolutely amazing thanks to really knowledgable and professional guides. The photography opportunities cannot be beat.
