Sabi Sands Game Reserve

“Simply amazing!”

An exclusive 5-star lodge, Savanna is situated in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve within the greater Kruger National Park conservancy. We had a fantastic experience at Savanna in the short 3 days we were there. The room and lodge were fabulous, the staff, ranger and tracker all get tops ratings, and the safari experience was truly beyond words. The game drives were brilliant and greatly exceeding our expectations. We were so close to the animals in a safe environment! We loved the dinner in the train car, which was very unique. I highly recommend Savanna for a perfect safari experience!

“Our very first Safari experience”

We have just returned home to Sydney, Australia after spending 4 weeks in Africa. It was our first visit there and our first ever Safari. We are still reliving the memories of the amazing time we had at Savannah, looking at the many photos we took. Everything was perfect, our accommodation was excellent, the surroundings, meals and service. It was like being in paradise. Our guide was Derrick and tracker Abraham and they were both wonderful. Derrick was very knowledgable about all the animals and birds and also a lot of fun. It was so hard to leave this beautiful place but we were lucky enough to have 4 nights there and hope to return for another visit.
Thank you so much to all the staff for making our time at Savannah so memorable.

“The most amazing place to stay”

If I could give 6 stars to this lodge I would! Everything was perfect, the guides and trackers excellent, so full of knowledge and could not be faulted. All the staff goes out of their way to make your stay as perfect as possible and you end up leaving feeling that you have become part of the ‘Savanna family’. The extra touches they provide are delightful and the accommodation is luxurious. The fact there is a different dining experience every evening is nice. They clearly care about the animals and conservation and I was impressed by their involvement in the local community and in particular the orphanage. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

“"Highlight of our trip"”

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Natasha we knew we were in a special place. The hospitality and level of service were above anything else we have ever experienced and the family suite that we stayed in was just amazing. Our driver, Paddy and tracker, Julius went out of their way to make sure that our kids saw plenty of leopards and lions, as well as so much more. After spending 4 days at Savanna, we left there feeling like we have made friends for life and can’t wait until we can return.
