We had five nights at Savanna and it was our first visit. We had a wonderful time and even though the lodge had a large demanding Australian party staying there at the time of our visit we were made to feel valued and special by the management and never once felt that we were intruding on a private party.
The game viewing was spectacular. On the first day we saw the big five plus a pack of wild dogs. Day 2 we saw all of the big 7. Day 3 the big five again in less than 2 hours together with a pair of leopards procreating. Day 4 leopard killing eland. Day 5 two more leopards. I think we saw on average 2 - 3 leopards a day which was incredible. We were priveledged in our ranger and his tracker could find these wonderful creatures, often entering the bush on foot to find them for us. Not only that but every time our vehicle was stopped for viewing it was positioned to allow us to get the very best photographs.
Our room was comfortable and spacious and the food throughout was excellent. I particularly liked the idea of late breakfast and lunch at 3pm which allowed longer morning game drives.
We were so impressed with our visit that we have booked another visit and can't wait to get back to Savanna.
