The rooms and suites are very clean and spacious and laundry and drinks are all complimentary. The game drives are excellent with the big five in... More

Having been aware of Savanna for the past 8 years through work, it was finally our turn - and boy, was it worth the wait!! Paddy is a gem, his knowledge and sense of humour just added to the brilliant game viewing (Big 5 every day on 6 drives) - food was divine, the accommodation superb and the overall atmosphere,...

Everything was perfect at Savannah. We got upgraded into on of the nicest chalets which was spacious and had a private pool. Our ranger (Cedric) was outstanding and showed us all the big 5 across 4 amazing game drives. Food was great and attention to details was excellent! They were super attentive and respectful of our peace and quiet! It... More

We knew it was going to be good, but that good!!!!!!!!!!!! This was a big birthday celebration and it was outstanding. There was nothing that didn't exceed our expectations by a huge margin. The drives were spectacular ( we saw almost every animal in the park with the exception of the cheetah), our guide was outstanding, the accommodation, food and... More

Our first visit to this splendid game reserve proved to be as exciting and invigorating as we anticipated.. 5.00a.m is an unearthly hour to receive an alarm call but it was worth it ! Each game drive was a new experience with fabulous sightings of all the 'Big Five' as well as numerous other animals and birds. What wonderful photo... More

Flawless and decadent holiday destination with a relaxed and very comfortable atmosphere. Attention to detail coupled with awesome staff makes for the most memorable holiday. Savanna delivers everything you could wish for and more. I cannot find words that will come near to adequately describe or recommend Savanna as a holiday destination

It all feels like family from the welcome at the landing strip to a sad farewell. Game drives were magical with sightings of all the animals we had travelled so far to see.... More
