We cannot thank Savanna enough for an incredible stay this past August. My husband and I were on our honeymoon, and we could not have felt more special or better taken care of. I have traveled extensively around the world and can tell you that this is by far the best vacation experience I have ever had. There were so...

We're biased - we're repeaters at Savanna, and cannot imagine why anyone goes to another lodge in Sabi Sands. The personalised and discreet hospitality is perfectly balanced, the suites are delightful, the team at Savanna are super-passionate and professional. Their interest in and support for the local communities is just heart-wrenchingly wonderful. The food and bev side is faultless -...

We stayed at the Savanna Reserve for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. Every part of the trip was pure perfection. We had Eddie as our tracker and Kevin as our ranger. Each drive was over the top exciting and it's seriously amazing how close they can get to the animals. The meals were great and the staff was...

From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. The Lodge is beautiful and very accommodating. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The hot bath and cognac that was left for us each night upon our return from a game drive added to the luxury. But it was Neil, Tash and the staff that made our stay so wonderful....

Savanna Private Game Reserve is always full of surprises. Excellent game viewing, expert rangers who can describe the life-cycle of all the animals you will come across, and lovely accommodations. We have traveled many times in Africa and I must say Savanna is extraordinary.
