Savanna has an enviable corner of land in the western part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in Mpumalanga. Since there are no boundaries between the reserve and Kruger National Park next door, animals have a vast expanse of wilderness in which to roam.
Live Amoung the Wild
A waterhole just beyond Savanna Lodge attracts lots of game.
With no fences around the suites, it is not uncommon for guests to find an elephant wandering past their rooms.
Land of the Leopard
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is known as the 'Land of the Leopard' and a visit here without sighting a leopard is an unlikely occurrence.
Savanna's rangers and trackers make sure of that and are pretty confident that most guests will go home with photographs of the reserve's resident female leopards, Mkwela and Shangwa, as well as images of its lion population.
Game drives are thus a highlight in this part of the lowveld, and with a maximum of only six guests per vehicle, the service is intimate and personal.
Revitalise the Soul
Guests often congregate in the main entertainment area and boma or at the swimming pool - except those people in the two thatched Savanna Suites and three of the seven tented suites, who have their own private bijou splash pool.
In the tented suites, Savanna has cleverly mixed two safari styles to create a unique architectural genre, defined by solid walls, glass doors that open up the entire front of the suite and a ceiling covered with drapes under a canvas roof.
Neither solid lodge nor canvas tent, the suites represent an atmospheric combination of the best in safari accommodation.Stay at Savanna Private Game Reserve
