This lodge is the perfect pairing of excitement and relaxation. Warm genuine smiles greet you as you are lead into this beautiful oasis. The common area/dining area/bar is opened allowing the sunlight to shine in. This is all decorated in dark rich wood. Above is a loft library with computer facing the stone pool. Cozy chairs are scattered throughout. You...

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.

From the moment you enter the gate into Savanna Lodge you are made to feel an important member of the 'Savanna family' As and when you meet each member of the staff they introduce themselves and make you feel so welcome. Nothing is to much trouble for them. With just seven rooms at the lodge the ambiance is that of...

Savanna was the perfect way to end our first trip to Southern Africa. Every accommodation is private and the service is outstanding. Although a resident hippo, velvet monkeys and wandering Kudu might greet you, an escort is always available to take you safely to and from your accommodation. The Rangers make you feel like family, hosting all meals and monitoring...

We were blessed with some good rain in the morning and this just continued throughout our stay. The accommodation was private and of a high standard. The welcome and attention to detail by the staff was a welcome start to what...

The Wild Source arranged our itinerary in South Africa and all the details were perfect. We saw the Big Five plus and had a great overview of Capetown. Both Savanah Reserve and Kensington Place were great. I would recommend The Wild Source for people planning a trip to africa. We made our own dinner reservations in Capetown and used Uber...

Amazing trip, everyone from the manager, porters, waitresses, guides, trackers, house keeping, was so so nice. They could not do enough for us. The food was delicious and any requests were met with a smile. Our guide Derrick & tracker Julius ensured we saw the big 5 most days. Highly recommend this lodge and can't wait to return.
