We spent a wonderful 24 hours here after our trip to Belize Zoo with our two kids. Beautiful lodgings in exquisite gardens. Fascinating seeing the work of Richard & Carol Foster first hand. It was such an education for us all on wildlife documentary making.

Richard really made us feel at home. He does everything to make you have a pleasant stay. He drives you to the zoo and the restaurant etc. But best of all are the stories he told. What an interesting couple! The rooms are great and breakfast is all you could wish for. Feeding crocs and margays was lovely. This place...

We had the place to ourselves. It was totally charming. Cozy - yet spacious - a thoroughly pleasant place to stay. Our hosts were generous with their time and knowledge. They shared videos of films they have made for National Geographic and showed us sets they created to film wildlife. Very interesting. The location was great. The price is good...

Thank you Richard and Carol !! We happened upon this place due to a last minute decision to stop at the Belize Zoo and it was by far our favorite part of the trip. The Fosters couldn't be any nicer and the house itself is a beautiful place to stay. We could go on forever about how much we loved...

We had a great time at the Savannah Guest House. Richard and Carol are very nice, friendly and helpful and serve a delicious breakfast with tea, fresh fruits, eggs, coffee, banana bread, toast and marmelade.

My family and I stayed at Savanna Guest House for 2 nights and had an excellent time. Carol and Richard are excellent hosts and full of wonderful stories.

Richard was a terrific host, taking great measures to assure our peaceful stay and comfort. Quiet and tucked away (but right down the street from the Belize Zoo) one instantly is tuned in to the wildlife, especially in the morning when the birds come alive. The Fosters have lived in Belize since the 70s and can give you much insight...
