An exclusive 5 star lodge, Savanna is situated in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve within the greater Kruger National Park conservancy. Located in the Western sector and traverse around 10500 hectares. Savanna 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. Specially designed game viewing vehicles and highly trained guides with 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.

A close-knit team of friendly staff provides personalised service with each guest regarded as a valued friend. From the moment they arrive guests feel part of the Savanna 'family'.

Nine magnificent suites offer spacious and luxurious accommodation. Seven of the suites have tented roofs, blending the elegance of a by-gone colonial era with all the convenience of modern facilities.

Savanna is the only lodge in the Sabi Sands with Tented style accommodation. 7 of our 9 Suites perfectly combine canvas roof tops with inner ceiling draping, set atop a solid room foundation with sandstone tiles and all the privacy and amenities expected of a 5* lodge. The result is a romantic “Out of Africa” suite.

4 x Luxury Tented Suites are approximately 96m2 including the outdoor shower and front patio.
3 x Executive Tented Suites are approximately 180m2 including the outdoor shower, deck and pool area.
1 x Thatched Suite or 2 x Thatched Executive Suites - The entire Savanna Suite is approximately 480m2 including all 3 decks, both pools and 2 outdoor showers.


Savanna Private Game Lodge is situated in the Western sector of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, within the southern quarter of the greater Kruger National Park conservation area. It traverses around 10500 hectares.

This reserve shares 50km of unfenced boundary with Kruger National Park and animals are at liberty to go wherever they wish - but they tend to stay right where they are! This is because the Sand River and Sabi River supply much needed water in the dry season and create an eco-system with one of the highest and most bio-diverse wildlife populations in Southern Africa. This is the reason why it is quite possible to see the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, buffalo and elephant) as well as numerous other animals and birds in a couple of days, or even a couple of hours in Sabi Sand.
