My family and I stayed at Savanna Guest House for 2 nights and had an excellent time. Carol and Richard are excellent hosts and full of wonderful stories. Richard gave us a tour of the property and we got to feed the crocodiles and margay. Breakfast was simple with homemade banana bread, fruit and bread. Perfect way to start the... More

What a fabulous place to stay. Richard Foster is a delight and I only wish we had stayed a few more nights. His stories are delightful to hear and his hospitality wonderful. We had a large room with plenty of reading lights, and a lovely continental breakfast before we headed to the airport. I would recommend you stay with the... More

Richard was a terrific host, taking great measures to assure our peaceful stay and comfort. Quiet and tucked away (but right down the street from the Belize Zoo) one instantly is tuned in to the wildlife, especially in the morning when the birds come alive. The Fosters have lived in Belize since the 70s and can give you much insight... More

I can't say enough about our one night stay at the Foster's! Richard was nice enough to fetch us from the Zoo (also worth a visit in case you were wondering) and immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable in the guest house. There was an intense rain storm about one hour after after our arrival that was such a... More

All the five star reviews are correct. It is peaceful, quiet, and comfortable in every way. We started our trip there and it was the perfect choice. After a looong travel day, it was a short drive there and ideal for decompressing and relaxing. Richard is a terrific host, the rooms are beautiful hardwoods, and the grounds are a natural... More

What an incredible place...we booked it because it was close to the zoo and was so well rated. We weren't crazy about staying in Belize City on our last night, so this house was perfect for our needs. Little did we know what a gem this place is, and how wonderful and interesting our host Richard would be. He picked... More

What a great place to stay in Belize. We spent 2 night there. Richard picked us up from the airport, drove us to the local Cheers restaurant down the road and back to the airport when we had to leave. We enjoyed their filming lab, the nature trail and seeing and feeding the crocodiles. We did the nighttime tour of... More

Staying at Savanna Guest House feels like taking up residence in a very commodious jungle research lodge, and that's not far from the truth. The owners are nature documentarians who built it back when Belize was still a British Colony. The polished-hardwood rooms open to screened porches with a couch and hammock where you can kick back and enjoy the... More

We are in the Pine Savanna with very nice rustic facilities, with nature walks and close to the zoo. There is a river nearby to go swimming and tubing. Birds are abundant in the morning.
