Our stay at Savannah Lodge was incredible. We felt like part of the family and everyone and everything was just so inclusive. Staff and Game Drive experts just so obliging and knowledgable. Accommodation spot on - "taxi" returns to tent from the main lodge at night excellent. Food overwhelming in its quality AND quantity - I guess you did not... More

The Sabi Sands is near Kruger National Park, South Africa. It is a private reserve which is most important for an African Safari, for the Range Rovers can get off the trails thus enabling wild game close-ups that might not even be discovered on the trails. That was the case for us with leopards, lions and rhinos. We had seen... More

We recently have had the privilege of staying at Savanna again. It’s like going back to your own African home away from home and visiting good friends. Everything as we appreciated from the last trip remains the same excellent quality. What really sets Savanna apart from anything other establishments is the lovely staff. New & young game ranger Daniel is... More

My wife and I have just returned from our 13th visit to Savanna. As usual we were not disappointed by anything. We had a warm welcome from all the staff, excellent food, great game viewing etc. Since its our 13th visit, they are obviously doing everything right. Just a general comment about game viewing - lions, leopards and cheetah can... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Savanna Private Game Reserve for our honeymoon and it was truly the trip of a lifetime. The best way to describe it is simply paradise. When we first arrived, every single staff member came up to us to personally introduce themselves to us. The staff was attentive to detail - our... More

Accommodation and staff first class always with a smile and very attentive to our needs.Having stayed in more than one lodge in the Sabi Sands this stay made a difference. Wonderful sightings and our... More

Sabi Sands is right place to go for the animals- small # people viewing, great animal populations- from there it's all a bit of the luck of the day*. Savanna is the right place for EVERTHING else. The rooms are fantastic- lovely, tasteful, understated, a bit trendy and in perfect order. The food is fantastic- interesting salads and lunch dishes,... More

My friend and I made an impulsive trip to SA in July and spent a week at Savanna, Most people stay 3 nights and move on to another lodge. I don't see the point if staying in Sabi Sands area covering the same concessions. We saw the big five in the first three game drives and from then on was... More
