Updated: Nov 23
10 Reasons Why We are Wildly in Love - and you will be too!
Nestled within the world-renowned Sabi Sand Reserve in the greater Kruger National Park Conservancy, Savanna Lodge is an adventure waiting to be explored. As a family, we've had the privilege of experiencing the magic of this internationally acclaimed lodge, offering a safari experience that's both exclusive and intimate. Here's why we love this piece of heaven on earth:
1. Exclusivity and Luxury: Savanna Private Game Reserve is one of our favorite get-aways for its exclusive 5-star setting without being overdone and fussy. It offers an intimate safari experience that effortlessly blends the charm of colonial-era tented accommodation with all modern luxury conveniences. To quote their tagline, "Just a little different."
2. Frequent Big 5 Sightings: There's no place like Savanna for spotting the "Big 5" in a single game drive. Lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino sightings are so common here that it's almost expected. The magic of these encounters is something we hold dear.
3. Luxurious Accommodations: The opulence of their nine exquisite suites is something we are crushing on. They epitomize understated luxury with private patios, plunge pools, outdoor showers, air-conditioned interiors, and elegant decor.
4. A Sanctuary for Nature Lovers: We're enchanted by the picturesque surroundings. The main pool, public lounge with a spacious patio, and the bird's eye view of the waterhole from the loft create a serene ambience for bird and game watching. The lush gardens and floodlit waterhole are a constant source of delight.
5. Digital Memories and Connectivity: Savanna's library with wireless broadband internet access ensures we can instantly transfer our digital safari memories. Nothing like bragging on the insta with "wish you were here" pics!
6. Wine and Dining: Savanna's impressive, fully-stocked wine cellar and bar keep us refreshed, and the traditional Shangaan boma offers an authentic dining experience. The food is wholesome and fresh, with just enough fancy to really get the tastebuds going. And, of course, the well-stocked curio shop is a treasure trove of souvenirs.
7. Wellness and Relaxation: The fully-equipped gym amidst the bush provides a unique way to stay active while on safari. The option for exquisite massage treatments in the privacy of your suite is a must-indulgence.
8. A Safari of Rare Encounters: The diverse 10,000 hectares of prime bushveld that Savanna traverses means we can look forward to not only the "Big 5" but also cheetah, wild dog, hippo, crocodile, and an abundance of bird species. The safari experience at Savanna goes beyond expectations.
9. Game Drives and Walks: The knowledge and dedication of the game rangers and trackers are something we hold close to our hearts. From dawn till sunset, they will take you on an unforgettable journey into the world of the wild, ensuring you capture incredible photographs and everlasting memories.
10. More than anything… it is the people of Savanna. From management through to wait staff, incredible rangers and trackers, dedicated housekeepers and – well, everyone – You feel at home here. You are part of a family, and your experiences are shared with the whole staff and fellow adventurers in a small, relaxed and intimate feeling camp.
