We visited Savanna for five days and loved every minute. Every staff member treated us like family, being there for anything we needed. Food- awesome! Services-amazing! Love this place!! The game drives were amazing, we saw the big five in less than 2 hours of our first game drive.

This amazingly place has a special place in my heart. The memories and experience are out of this world. The catering, the accommodation and the staff are just everything that you could hope for. The game sightings are just absolutely amazing thanks to really knowledgable and professional guides. The photography opportunities cannot be beat.

Savanna is a fantastic option when picking where to stay in Sabi Sands. The luxury is just fantastic and the guiding and food was exceptional. Paddy was out guide and he was great. He has so much experience and knowledge of the area as he has been in the bush for 32 years. The food also was fantastic. The best... More

Savanna is the one hotel that I have had on my bucket list since I started traveling when I was 24. This is not my first time to South Africa, however it was my first time to Sabi Sands & I wanted to do it with the best of the best, so I picked Savanna. I decided that I couldn’t... More

We returned a few weeks ago from Savanna, but have been busy showing off all our pictures of the big five and more! From the moment we arrived Savanna far exceeded all our expectations. The staff can't do enough for you! The suites are spacious, clean, beautiful, and stocked with everything and anything you want or need. The rangers and... More

We couldn't have asked for anything better! Part of our honeymoon was a 4 day stay at Savanna. What a great experience! The animal viewing was incredible. We viewed a fresh Giraffe kill and saw the big 5 multiple times. The staff treated us royally with a little surprise for us to celebrate our marriage. Highly recommend....a 5 star experience!

The accommodation was in a thatched luxury tent overlooking a water hole and surrounded by beautiful gardens. The accommodation itself was home away from home... More

The experience is 5 star from the moment you are met at your vehicle, to the wonderful meals, to the exciting game drives. The trackers and guides were anxious for you to see the real safari...and you did, up close and personal. The service in your room is like the days of 5 star cruising when all your needs were...

I stayed at Sabi Sands in a family suite with my wife and son. we had a beautiful room with an unusually deep, private plunge pool . Our view from the room was of open plains with the occasional herd of elephants drifting by. The bedroom was beautiful and the bathroom was as big as the bedroom. It had a... More
