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.
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.
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.
