About

Imagine waking up everyday to the roar of a lion instead of the ringing of an alarm clock. In fact, you won’t find much in the way of clocks here, because time stands still and days are governed by the sunrise and sunset that passes over the African bushveld. Welcome to Savanna, a private game reserve where getting back in touch with nature is encouraged.

Situated on the famous Sabi Sand Reserve in the Kruger National Park, Savanna offers its guests fantastic Big Five viewing. Enjoy the spectacular sights of the lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard on a private game drive or game walk with your friends and family – a really unique experience that is definitely at the top of South African tourism.

The rangers at Savanna have many years of experience guiding in the Sabi Sand reserve and share some great insight into the flora and fauna of the area and take you on their favourite routes along the pathways of this 10 000 hectare expanse of land. Watch as wild life drink from the many dams and watering holes in the area and keep an ear out for the over 400 bird species that nest in its trees.

Accommodation

The accommodation at Savanna has been described as colonial with modern touches. Transporting you back to a time of leisurely safaris and gin and tonics at sunset with no sound except the cicada beetles in the grass. Guests can choose between the Luxury Suites, Executive Suites or the Savanna Suite.

The Savanna suite really is your own slice of oversized luxury surrounded by secluded bushveld. Perfect for families or groups of friends, those staying in this beautifully appointed suite can enjoy a private butler and private game viewing vehicle with ranger to match.

Those in the executive suites will delight in the Bedouin-tent style accommodation with all the comforts of home. A wooden deck with plunge pool awaits hot adventurers as well as gorgeous lounge areas.

The luxury suite is, as the name implies, incredibly luxurious and sits between indigenous trees that offer fantastic shade and privacy. Definitely for those romantic adventurers!

Facilities  

As if there isn’t plenty to do outside of the main lodge, Savanna has made sure guests every whim is taken care of. Besides a lounge and library, there is also a main swimming pool and spacious patio for guests to enjoy. The viewing loft is particularly spectacular to relax in after a session at the gym.

Child policy

The Savanna Suite caters for children of all ages and children over the age of 8 are welcome in the rest of the lodge. Savanna offers a host of children’s activities from star gazing safaris at night to traditional hair braiding by one of the Tsonga girls.
