This was our first safari experience and we truly got spoiled with Savanna. The grounds are beautiful, our room was stunning, the staff is so warm and friendly that you very quickly feel like you're part of the family. That is what makes Savanna so special. There are many different private lodges in Sabi Sands, all with different highlights, but... More

We stayed at Savanna for four nights in early Sept. 2014. Our experience was nothing but excellent. Our ranger was David Wilson and our tracker was Life and they worked together very well. We saw every mammal on the check list up close and personal and most of them multiple times. David went out of his way to take an... More

My wife and I stayed here in August as part of our honeymoon. The staff, the lodging, the animals and the experience were all wonderful. We had booked the executive suite for the first night of our 3 night stay as the regular suites were booked that first night. The management at Savanna kept us in the executive suite for... More

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

We were with the Savanna family for 4 unforgettable days Mid-August. We left with many new friendships that will transcend distance and time, as well as knowing we will return. On the long journey home, my head was spinning with how to capture the experience and do it justice. After reading the most recent reviews, including rmcareer, also from Dallas,... 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

Truly a memorable stay. Tent was perfect nothing missing small attention to detail in the most natural of ways. Loved the quail eggs for soak time. 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
