This is not our first trip to Savanna Lodge and I hope it will not be our last. The facilities are first rate, the kitchen is ready to cater for any special diet requirements (we are vegetarian). Nature being what it is you cannot expect the wildlife to appear to order, but Paddy and the team go out of their... More

This was our second safari during our October 2014 trip, and while it was overall a wonderful experience, it didn't quite measure up to our first experience at Serondella (on the Thornybush game reserve), mainly in terms of hospitality and warmth. We were there on a belated honeymoon, having gotten married last year. The amenities were fantastic, including a fully... More

My first trip to savanna and hopefully not my last . Staff and accommodation second to none . Game drives were informative and exciting . Food was presented beautifully and great choice . Nice touch having the bath run following the afternoon game drive . Would strongly recommend .

This was the third time we've stayed at Savanna Lodge. And each time I had tears in my eyes when we left. The team at Savanna Lodge do an outstanding job creating a 'home from home' at the lodge whilst bringing you close to the outstanding wildlife. A perfect combination of high-standard accommodation and wildlife experience and education. The team... More

We spent three fantastic days in the company of Neil, Paddy, Julius and Rinske who made us amazingly welcome. All the staff are a delight and nothing is too much trouble. The game we saw was amazing and the proximity was astonishing. The communal dining was great with superb food and wines, perfect if you like meeting new people Stay... More

This was our third visit to Savanna Lodge, although our first time in the Savanna Suite. As with our previous visits, this trip was absolutely fantastic. The animals in the Sabie Sands are stunning and the rangers and trackers at Savanna are tremendous at locating and showing the animals to their best advantage but Savanna is much more than that....

We spent 3 wonderful days at Savanna. We have had many safari experiences and Savanna is exceptional. We enjoyed the size of the lodge, 9 rooms which means that it is small and intimate enough for everyone to mingle and get to know the other guests and rangers without being so small as to feel isolated or larger which would...

We have been to South Africa so many times we have lost count. We wouldn't think of going anywhere in Africa without stopping at Savanna. Everything is 5 star, from the game viewing to the food to the staff. There is such a family atmosphere amongst all the staff. We have never been disappointed in the game viewing; last May... More

Very nice place to stay. Rooms were beautiful. Staff was kind. Compared to other hotels/ lodges we stayed at on this trip, this lodge felt the least genuine. Our guide was knowledgeable. He was good, but you could tell it was his job and he wasn't actively tracking any animals, just waiting for the next call that an animal was... More
