This was our third visit to Savanna Lodge, although our first time in the Savanna Suite. As with our previous visits, this trip was absolutely fantastic. The animals in the Sabie Sands are stunning and the rangers and trackers at Savanna are tremendous at locating and showing the animals to their best advantage but Savanna is much more than that....

We spent 3 wonderful days at Savanna. We have had many safari experiences and Savanna is exceptional. We enjoyed the size of the lodge, 9 rooms which means that it is small and intimate enough for everyone to mingle and get to know the other guests and rangers without being so small as to feel isolated or larger which would...

We have been to South Africa so many times we have lost count. We wouldn't think of going anywhere in Africa without stopping at Savanna. Everything is 5 star, from the game viewing to the food to the staff. There is such a family atmosphere amongst all the staff. We have never been disappointed in the game viewing; last May... More

Very nice place to stay. Rooms were beautiful. Staff was kind. Compared to other hotels/ lodges we stayed at on this trip, this lodge felt the least genuine. Our guide was knowledgeable. He was good, but you could tell it was his job and he wasn't actively tracking any animals, just waiting for the next call that an animal was... More

We have stayed at sixteen camps and lodges in seven countries in Africa and Savanna is our favorite. We have debated whether the small size (only 9 rooms) or the staff was the best feature. Both are great. We have stayed in the smallest room and the largest room and liked them both. Neil, Tasha and the rest of the... More

We stayed at Savannah for 4 nights with another couple and had a great time. We stayed in Rooms 1 and 4 which are the most basic accommodation so not up to the level we had stayed in before elsewhere. Having said that, both rooms were fine and had a nice view over a water hole so we sat and... More

Dear Jan O Thank you for your review and the feedback. The burning procedures are not specific to Savanna but take place throughout the Kruger National Park, private reserves, and the Sabi Sand Reserve. Burning only takes place once a year and is a very necessary part of the ecological reserve management practices as it allows for veld and grazing... More

Our group had Savanna Private Game Reserve to ourselves for four nights. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff, attention to detail, special evening meals at different venues, and wonderful wildlife sightings. The evening meal on the train and special entertainment by the singers and dancers at the Boma and our farewell dinner had us all dancing under the... More

Savanna is simply something special - the place, the animals, the weather but most of all the people. This was our 12th visit and they still find something new to surprise us with. The ultimate safari experience with every attention to detail taken care of. Such an amazing place, such amazing people - so lucky to have found it.
