From our arrival to our departure, everything was outstanding. We were welcomed with a glass of real lemonade and shown to our spacious and well appointed accommodations. Complimentary items included snacks, drinks, a water cooler and an electric kettle. Slippers and robes of course. Just outside our "tent" was an elephant! Then cape buffalo! The food was generous, plentiful, well...

Everything we have done since visiting Savanna at Sabi Sands pales into insignificance. We now compare any hotel, lodge, game trip with our experience at Savanna We have recently visited Namibia and nothing comes close to the experience they provide. Food, service, trips, accommodation. The lot. We have been ruined for the rest of our lives (in the best possible...

We had a pretty much perfect time at Savanna this week. 8 game drives and each trip was fantastic in it's own right. Last morning drive topped it all though. Watched a female leopard stall and sprint through the bush to kill a grey duiker (out of sight). She then carried right past us and up a small tree as...

We visited Savanna for our honeymoon in December 2015. We booked nine months in advance and struggled to make a decision. There are so many wonderful properties in the Mala Mala / Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve next to Kruger. We were encouraged to pick that area because unlike Kruger, the vehicles have more freedom on where they can go....

Honestly, from the moment we stepped onto the property we were treated more like family than visitors. The game drives were amazing, but the service is what really sets this place apart. I have a background in customer service as I worked for Walt Disney World for many years, and taught their service values to new employees as well -...

My wife and I were recently in the Kapama Private Game Reserve (KPGR) for 3 nights 2 days. Delightful. So rather than going to Victoria Falls as many do after or before their game drive experiences, we decided to add another game reserve to our itinerary for comparison and to see more animals. Let's face it, that's really why you...

A wonderful lodge in a magnificent location in the Sabi Sand Reserve. Paddy Hagelthorn is by far the most knowledgable guide I have met and I cannot commend him highly enough in terms of his knowledge, hospitality, good company and humour. He is also an ace photographer and his book entitled "Never a dull moment" is certainly worth a read....
