Savanna Lodge, Sabi Sand, Greater Kruger

Authentic Luxury African Safari Experience
Savanna 5* Lodge, Sabi Sand Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park

South African Special Valid until 31 March 2021

An exclusive 5-star lodge, Savanna Lodge is situated in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve within the greater Kruger National Park Conservancy. Our internationally acclaimed lodge offers an exclusive, personalised and intimate safari experience to our guests, with a unique style of tented accommodation.

Savanna lodge lies in an area where ‘Big 5’ sightings are so frequent, it is not unusual to see lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino in a single game drive. Our specially designed game viewing vehicles and highly trained guides with a vast knowledge of the African bushveld, take guests on close and intimate encounters with a large variety of wildlife. Numerous nearby dams and a series of waterholes in front of the lodge attract many species, especially in the dry winter months when elephants are daily visitors.

Savanna Safari Lodge is a five-star luxury lodge offering nine exquisite suites. Seven of our suites have tented roofs, blending the elegance of a by-gone colonial era with all the convenience of modern facilities. Each suite offers guests private patios, plunge pools and outdoor showers, as well as air-conditioned interiors, minibars stocked with inviting treats, a coffee machine and décor that epitomises the elegance of understated luxury.

Relaxing in the comfort of the public lounge with its spacious patio, or at the main pool looking out over lush gardens and floodlit waterhole, our guests are frequently treated to fantastic views of birds and game drinking and bathing. The loft above the lounge makes a pleasant nook for a quiet game of chess as well as a bird’s eye view of the waterhole, while an adjoining library provides wireless broadband internet access and offers guests the means to transfer digital photographs, freshly captured on their safari, onto CD or DVD.

Our fully-stocked wine cellar and bar ensure your thirst is always quenched. Enjoy a meal whilst sitting around our traditional Shangaan boma, and purchase a precious memento of your experience at our well-stocked curio shop.

Superb South African cuisine combined with varied dining venues, is an essential component of the Savanna safari experience. Dining at Savanna is more than just a meal, it’s a way for us to come together and celebrate life. Menus are hearty, decadent and deliciously different.

Enjoy an experience that is just a little different…

Our beautifully appointed suites nestle amongst indigenous bush and trees that provide privacy, quiet and a haven for birds. The epitome of elegance and comfort, the décor is a blend of colonial and classic with hand-crafted furniture, fine linen, and beautiful artwork. Three Executive and four Luxury Suites offer a unique ‘Out of Africa’ experience with canvas roofs above draped ceilings set on permanent structures. All have magnificent bathrooms and decks looking onto waterholes in the bush. All suites have private, heated plunge pools.

The thatched Savanna Suite is tailor-made for families, with two en-suite bedrooms on either side of a spacious, elegant lounge and large covered patio. The bedroom suites with their individual bathrooms, can also be booked separately, in which case they would not include the lounge, private vehicle, and guides which are part of the Savanna Suite package.

Game Drives in Sabi Sand

In an area studded with dams that attract large herds of game, and traversing more than 10 000 hectares of prime bushveld, a Savanna safari provides exceptional opportunities to see the ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino – as well as cheetah, wild dog, hippo, crocodile, an abundance of general game and over 400 bird species. The emphasis at Savanna is, first and foremost, on the safari experience, on the activities of the many rare and beautiful creatures encountered.

Experienced and dedicated game rangers and trackers impart their amazing knowledge of the natural world, allowing guests to unobtrusively enter the lives of the largest and smallest creatures. From the mist shrouding the bush at dawn till the blazing sun sets behind distant mountains, the magic of a Savanna safari will provide incredible photographs and unforgettable memories.
