We stayed at Savanna Lodge for 3 nights at the end of September and as recommended by our travel advisor this would be a fitting culmination of our 3 week trip around Southern Africa.
The lodge was lovely, the staff exceptionally welcoming and friendly and our guide and tracker were fantastic!! Of course, the game drives were the main attraction and getting up at 5.00am well worth it! Seeing leopard, elephant, lion, etc, etc in their natural environment was exceptional as were our guide David's great 4WD skills taking us where no self respecting safari vehicle would be destined to go - an adrenaline rush as well as a safari experience!!.
The food was naturally terrific as well and it was also very heartening to see the Savanna philosophy of giving back to the community in the form of supporting the local orphanage and nearby village.
All in all an experience not to be missed - a jewel in the crown of safari experiences in Southern Africa. Thanks to everyone who made this such a memorable stay.
