What a truly spectacular experience. From the Lodge itself, our beautiful room with its own pool, the amazing food and staff, to the wonderful game drives. EVERYTHING here is perfect. We were visiting SA for the first time on our honeymoon, and 3 days at Savanna was our last stop. WHAT an end to the trip. It was just perfect...

I can't compare to other game reserves in the area. However I'm well travelled across the world and I've never come across a place that even half compares to Savanna. The staff are phenomenal, they are so friendly and helpful, our guide was Derek and our tracker was Abraham, who were both lovely, knowledgeable, fun and had a great sense...

We stayed at Savanna in July, on our first family trip to Africa. I think we have been spoiled for any other safari experience. This place deserves all its wonderful reviews and more. We had the most memorable stay here, and none of us wanted to leave. From the very first minute of our stay we were made to feel...

You would have made the best choice for your safari experience if you chose to stay at Savanna :) I could write pages and pages about our 4d/3n experience, but this was the most incredible stay, right from the cozy and spacious African-tent styled structure, to the group sit down meals with other guests. Loved the little things - the...

This was the most spectacular trip I have ever taken. From the moment we were collected from the small airport within Kruger Park and taken out of Kruger and into Sabi Sands and delivered to the game reserve to the moment we left - nothing was too much trouble - nothing was left to chance - our every wish was...

The property was fabulous! The accommodations were beautiful, staff extraordinary and the food was delicious. Our ranger (Neil) was terrific and wonderfully knowledgeable about all types of wildlife. We saw the Big 5, a elegant bush breakfast and multiple sundowners.

Previous reports have said it all and I just wish to add my endorsement. First time safari, three nights and what a memorable experience. Excellent food, company, staff and the wild animals were very cooperative. Knowledgeable rangers whose expertise led us to the animals we sought. OK a 5am wake up call but well worth it. Please go if you...

Our second visit to Savanna & surprisingly was actually better than our first. The quality of the insight from the rangers is amazing- Paddy Hagelthorn is an absolute legend. What he doesn't know isn't worth knowing. The game viewing is superb & their focus on customer experience is outstanding. Will definitely be back again
