While our entire trip was unbelievable, Savanna was the highlight of the trip. We stayed three days at Savanna, and saw amazing wildlife. We saw... More

We spent 4 nights at Savanna in February and I can honestly say that our stay was nothing short of sensational.

We spent two nights in December at Savanna and we were absolutely blown away. My 10 yr old son is asking if there is anything more than an excellent rating.

Our first experience of South Africa, loved Cape Town and Franschhoek, but Savanna exceeded those destinations. The minute we arrived we were made very welcome, our room was lovely, every detail had been considered. Two drives per day, the morning drive starting at 5am was a little daunting, (not being an early riser generally) I would not have missed out,... More
