From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Our room was lovely- well equipped and kept beautifully clean. The main lodge is comfortable and there is a pool and viewing deck for relaxing, as well as the lovely Eva available for a great massage, as well as manicures and pedicures. Meals are taken at a big communal...

This camp is one of two we visited. It is charming and straight out of "Out of Africa" so you expect to run into Meryl Streep! The rooms are large, well docorated and beyond belief, each with small private swimming pool. When we arrived a long line of adult and baby elephants were walking past the watering hole in front...

Savanna Private Game reserve was definitely the highlight of our trip to South Africa.

We stayed at three lodges on safari in South Africa. This by far was the best of the three. We really enjoyed our stay here. The property is lovely. The rooms were the best, and we stayed in the "basic" rooms. They were beautiful, modern and well maintained. Lots of snacks & beverages in the room. Not that you will...

Right from arrival we knew we were in for something special. The staff are so friendly and interested while with a professionalism that is always there. Our room was stunning, a practical luxury rather than formal, with all the details met and more. Looking out our window on arrival we watched 3 of the big five just for starters. The...

What a way to start our first safari! Our family had three suites, each of which were as nice as any we have stayed in anywhere. Each afternoon before our drive, we were treated to animals (warthogs, kudu, and elephants) passing by as we relaxed by the plunge pool outside our suites. The food was terrific and varied. Now on...

There are no words to describe how AMAZING this place is. Our room looking at the waterhole was stunning. We saw animals constantly coming in and out, including elephants and hippos... from our window! Our guide, David Wilson was out of this world, funny, warm and so knowledgeable.

My husband and I fell in love with Savanna Private Game Reserve. Everything was so perfect that I am afraid that any future stays in any other hotels or inns will be such a disappointment. Nothing was too difficult for the staff to arrange. Everyone was always gracious and very pleasant. Every amenity was provided from a fully stocked mini...

Words cannot describe the magic of Savanna - EVERYTHING is superb. The accommodation, game viewing, food, safari vehicles, grounds & service will all please even the toughest critic; but it's the staff that makes this my favorite safari lodge or camp (and I've stayed at dozens).
