Flawless and decadent holiday destination with a relaxed and very comfortable atmosphere. Attention to detail coupled with awesome staff makes for the most memorable holiday. Savanna delivers everything you could wish for and more. I cannot find words that will come near to adequately describe or recommend Savanna as a holiday destination

This was a return visit to Savannah - a beautiful thatched lodge sits at ithe centre of the camp where delicious meals and great wines are served. It all feels like family from the welcome at the landing strip to a sad farewell. Game drives were magical with sightings of all the animals we had travelled so far to see.... More

My husband, adult daughter and I have just been lucky enough to spend 3 fantastic days and nights at Savanna. This was the most unforgettable experience. We arrived mid afternoon and had just enough time for a late lunch and then it was off on our first game drive with David our Ranger and Edward our tracker. We were lucky... More

The best game drives I have ever been on. Our tracker, Life, and ranger, Dan, were extraordinary in finding and tracking game. We saw lions, leopards, rhinos, giraffes, vervet monkeys, hippos, elephants, kudu, impalas, zebras, Cape buffalo, hyenas, and more repeatedly over the three days we stayed there and we saw everything up close. The grounds and lodging are beautiful.... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Savanna in October last year and I did a review on this forum and to be honest I found your reply very aggressive. I did not see the need to complaint at the lodge about the incident becuase the person I complained about is in fact, management himself. My husband wanted to... More

We just completed three days and nights at Savanna and are so sorry to leave. We flew in on Federal Air (organized for us by Savanna) to an airstrip about a 45-minute drive from the lodge. Our tracker, Life, picked us up, and he’d pointed out four of the “big five” by the time we got to the lodge. We... More

In December 2014 we spent four nights at Savanna. Our experience there was everything we expected and more. The staff was exceptional, engaging and very interested that our stay was memorable. Rangers and trackers always came through with great animal viewings on every game drive...saw all of the 'big five' several times plus giraffes, zebras, hyaenas ...plus, plus. It was... More

This is not our first trip to Savanna Lodge and I hope it will not be our last. The facilities are first rate, the kitchen is ready to cater for any special diet requirements (we are vegetarian). Nature being what it is you cannot expect the wildlife to appear to order, but Paddy and the team go out of their... More

This was our second safari during our October 2014 trip, and while it was overall a wonderful experience, it didn't quite measure up to our first experience at Serondella (on the Thornybush game reserve), mainly in terms of hospitality and warmth. We were there on a belated honeymoon, having gotten married last year. The amenities were fantastic, including a fully... More

My first trip to savanna and hopefully not my last . Staff and accommodation second to none . Game drives were informative and exciting . Food was presented beautifully and great choice . Nice touch having the bath run following the afternoon game drive . Would strongly recommend .
