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

I would highly recommend this lodge for families. We traveled with our 2 daughters (ages 16 & 18) and they had the BEST time and are ready... 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. I was a little worried on the 2hr drive from the airport that we never really seemed... More

Everything about our experience at Savanna surpassed our expectations. The staff was absolutely lovely and they went out of their way to make sure our honeymoon was amazing (from the surprise private dinner on our deck to the petal bath with champagne). The food was delicious and there was a lot of variety of dishes at every meal (the chefs... More

I've been home over a week and posted reviews of our other visits but this one I've struggled with. This place gets off the charts ratings.
