We spent an amazing 4 nights at savanna definitely the highlight of our South African holiday. We were so fortunate to have Neil as our ranger and julius as our tracker.

We just returned over a week ago and we had such a great experience. What a beautiful area. The food is terrific, the dining staff is very flexible, and we had 3 fantastic meals each day (and snacks/drinks in between just to make sure we were not hungry at any point in the day). The safari rides were completely captivating...

Our first thought was Savanna was too Hollywood because there was a spotter with a large gun out front on the LandRover like you see in the movies and in magazines.
