This place and the people who operate it and work within it are absolutely amazing. The location, the lodges and most of all, the wildlife are all stunning and if you want first class, this is for you. I had the most wonderful time and travelling solo, I did not feel alone at any time. Everyone was very inclusive. Communal... More

After spending 8 days touring South Africa, it was time to see what we came to see....big game! I had no idea what to expect so when we were dropped off at Savanna I was pleasantly surprised. The Staff were welcoming and both the public areas and the rooms were very well appointed although not luxurious. Savanna is set within... More

WOW! I fell in love with the place. I hate to give away all the surprises, as I want you, who choose to spend time at this camp, to be as delighted as I was. Lovely place, with a partially open-air communal dining area with fireplaces and comfortable, attractive furnishings. Food was plentiful and delicious. I had no idea I... More

While part of me kind of wants to keep Savanna a secret for myself, have to review so others are able to have a similar wonderful experience! I don't want to give too much away so it is a surprise for you but I am still glowing from the experience and will return! Thank you in particular to Kevin, Libon,... More

Goodie bag on arrival, pad kos on departure. Game viewing and experience with Paddy our ranger and tracker Edward truly memorable. Service brilliant. Food excellent... More

This was our last stay in a six week journey through west & east Africa. All of our lodgings were in the luxury class but Savanna took it up a notch or three. I don't want to say too much as Savanna is so unique it'd spoil the many wonderful surprises you get here each day. From the food, the... More

My wife and I just completed a terrific stay at Savanna Private Game Reserve. Derrick was our guide and Abraham was our tracker. They were a great team and really worked to find the game action each drive! The game drive vehicles look brand new. There is seating only for a maximum of 6 people in 3 rows with a... More
