The experience is 5 star from the moment you are met at your vehicle, to the wonderful meals, to the exciting game drives. The trackers and guides were anxious for you to see the real safari...and you did, up close and personal. The service in your room is like the days of 5 star cruising when all your needs were...

I stayed at Sabi Sands in a family suite with my wife and son. we had a beautiful room with an unusually deep, private plunge pool . Our view from the room was of open plains with the occasional herd of elephants drifting by. The bedroom was beautiful and the bathroom was as big as the bedroom. It had a... More

We had a fantastic stay at Savanna. The staff was fantastic! They had surprises for us each day. We are definitely going back. Extraordinary! Our ranger Daniel was terrific. Very knowledgeable and obviously loves what he does.

we were looked after very well by the Savanna family. The personal service we received, was outstanding. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Food was great, and as for the Safari , we saw all the big 5 and more. Our guide Derek and tracker Lybon were first rate.

Our experience at this lodge, Savanna has left us in a dilemma, We wonder how any other place we visit is going to measure up to it. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's and we witnessed others having exactly the same treatment so it appears to be the norm here. Nothing was too much trouble and... More

We have just returned from a Savanna family trip after historically loving three previous stays there as a couple. Our African adventures have taken us to many varied wonderful game parks but none have compared to Savanna thus far. The expertise of the trackers and rangers ensure the best possible sightings. The rooms/suites are luxurious, the pampering unbelievable and the... More

Unfortunately we only had two days to stay at Savannah. But what a two days. The staff was wonderful and our guide Derrick. This was our first trip to So. Africa and it was great from the moment we checked in. I can't recommend Savannah highly enough. The location, food, staff were all wonderful. I had a reaction to my... More

Savanna has set the new standard when in comes to hospitality. This intimate camp knows how to make their guests feel like royalty. From having our room serviced each time we left it, returning from game drives with a drawn bubble bath, a surprise dinner on our patio, to magical sunset wine tastings....we loved our time at Savanna. They followed... More

Savanna is gorgeous. For an out of the world experience, book the savanna suite. The price is worth every penny. Excellent food, superb staff and great service. Truly 5 star+ place. The vehicles are luxurious and the rangers/trackers very knowledgeable.
