We recently stayed at Savanna Lodge and can't speak highly enough of the whole experience. Appropriate words to describe it are magical, exceptional, perfect! Nothing could be improved upon. The staff were highly professional and so friendly they felt like family. We loved the accommodation, the food, the service and hospitality, and, last and most, the game drives. We were... More

Just returned from a 3 night safari extravaganza at Savanna Private Game Reserve. Everything we encountered from the knowledgable staff to the guest amenities was fantastic. I did not expect that quality of food on a safari, it far exceeded my expectations. The safari itself did not disappoint either. We saw the "Big 5" many times over along with a... More

Well, where do I begin. Savanna Lodge was absolutely perfect. It totally exceeded our expectations. If I could rate it higher than "excellent" in all the categories - I definitely would. The lodge, the staff and the animals (of Sabi Sands – especially, the elephants, my favourites) all combined to make our holiday (to celebrate my 50th birthday/our 25th wedding... More

If you ever want to have a magnificent "safari" in the Sabi Sands game reserve and treat yourself to truly awesome African Big 5 experience, you need look no further. The staff, rangers and trackers take care of your every need and on day four, our final one, we experienced a herd of 80+ elephants. After numerous lion, leopard, rhino... More

Spent four days here with our family in august 2012; it was our first camp of two (the other, chiawa in zambia, was radically different, see seperate review) and a great place to start. Charter flight from J-burg to remote landing strip, short drive to camp. The managers, Neil and Natalie were simply spectacular, just perfect in every way (as... More

We were a group of 8, ranging in age from 10 to 70. I must say that Savanna came through for every one of us. The intensity of the involvement with the animals was startling -- watched lions mating, and saw them sleeping off a huge meal of a fresh-killed buffalo. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided background and... More
