My wife and I spent two nights here and now that we are back stateside, we still can't get over how amazing this lodge is. The staff were terrific and helpful - and our ranger (Greg) and tracker (Nordik) were excellent - knowledgeable and friendly - not to mention practically psychic in their ability to track and spot game. We ticked off big five in 3 game rides - and saw much more, including some thrilling landrover chases tracking some rare wild dogs.

The food was great - nice wine cellar selection - and the setting magnificent. Really enjoyed the local choir and breakfast in the bush. We would stay at least a day longer, maybe two next time simply to have more time to soak up the setting a bit more. So I guess we'll have to go back...

Stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The lodge is luxurious, the staff welcoming and can't do enough for you and the food was well presented, delicious and plentiful - everything homemade from the biscuits with your morning cuppa to the potato crisps served before dinner. Loved the service including having a hot bubble bath ready for you at the end of an afternoon/evening game drive. Neil was a brilliant ranger, not only extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife but also with a wicked sense of humour. Have been home over a week and when i go to sleep at night I'm still dreaming of the beautiful animals we saw on the game drives. Thank you Savanna.

How can you put into words what heaven would be if it was on earth. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for something special. It was as if we were being welcomed into our friends own home. The luxurious villas had evey thing you could possibly require and we are sure that if there was something missing it would magically appear.

But lets remember why we are really here - that is to see the Big 5 plus more. Early morning starts are easy when you have the expectation and excitement of seeing up close and personal the diverse range of animals that Africa has to offer. We are sure that the our ranger David and his tracker Lawrence had GPS units planted on the animals because how they found them we don't know. We were lucky to be able to stay 5 nights and never once did we think of missing a drive as we were too scared we would miss something even more exhilarating. Although my husband was not well for a couple of days and the staff made sure he was well looked after whilst I was away.

In the words of Lt. Gen. Douglas MacArthur -We shall return and if you have the opportunity to go to this piece of paradise make sure you stay at least 4 night.

This is an amazing, all-inclusive luxury resort. It's like luxury summer camp. The staff consists of some of the friendliest, most knowledgable folks in the bush - they made us feel right at home. The food was PLENTIFUL and DELICIOUS. The game drives were phenomenal - great rangers who know their reserve and the animals like the back of their hand. They knew the progress and habits of every creature we approached (and we saw so many!), including the development and growth of the family/generations of each animal we were observing. They pamper you at the very safe, very clean, very well-preserved lodge. We stayed for our honeymoon and they went out of their way to make it a romantic experience for us. We thought about changing our flights so that we could stay one more day!

I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone looking for an excellent safari and top-notch accommodations.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, however, we had the Savanna Suite, #9, which has a thatched roof (as opposed to...
