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

Having stayed at more than one lodge while in Sabi Sands, it was interesting to experience the differences. This review will be a little long in order to help those who might be looking for detail about the overall atmosphere as well as the general food, room, value info before making a decision on where to stay in Sabi Sands....

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

We spent two nights of our honeymoon at the Savanna and it was absolutely amazing! The rooms, the service and the food (including the choir) were fabulous and the safari tours with Neil were both very entertaining and informative. We went to Sabi Sands to see big cats and got to see five different leopards, male and female lions and... More

It seems that most of the Sabi-Sands lodges get fantastic reviews, … but Savanna worked out perfectly for us. Here’s why: Safari - The wildlife was my top priority. Up front I told our guide, Neil, exactly what I was hoping to see (my “top 5” if you will): (1) Cheetah, chasing something; (2) a Leopard in a tree with... More

What a treat Savanna Lodge was! Beautiful, spacious rooms, incredible food, and very talented guides were the highlights of our stay. On safari you can see Rhinos, Elephants, Cheetah, Leopards, and Lion prides, among others. We saw the entire "Big Five" on our first day. Really a treat. Wifi really was weak dont count on having good internet access at... More

From the moment we arrived late at night with the perfect greeting, to a few tears from all involved as we drove away at the end of our stay, Savanna provided the perfect end to our African safari experience and exceeded all expectations.
