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

Dee and David were gracious hosts and the property is well run. The food is excellent and the little surprises each night for dinner...

Just a magnificent few days and beyond our expectations. This was the first part of a three stage holiday arranged as a surprise for Joanna who wanted to go on a game reserve and had it as her number one on her bucket list. The actual game reserve tours are almost impossible to describe and better than anyone clan imagine....

This place is all around amazing. The guides and the rest of the staff were all wonderful and very knowledgable. The wildlife is top class: we saw the big five during multiple game drives!

A small exceptional lodge that will amaze you in every which way. The staff, the personal touch, the food, the rooms and the game drives. All are outstanding.

We enjoyed our stay at Savanna and loved seeing all of the leopards. You will definitely see leopards here and hearing about each one and their lineage was really interesting.

Loved every minute of our stay. The rooms are large and beautiful. The game drives are also great. Loved the large table we ate at each night, felt like a family. There's nothing more someone could ask for. Our stay was perfect.
