When To Visit Sabi Sand Reserves:

"Looking to feel close to home? Look no further, because Savanna sure gives you that homely relaxed feeling – from the minute you arrive at the lodge, you are part of the 'Savanna Family'. One of the unique lodges that focuses on giving back to the community and working very closely with local people. Why not stay here, and visit one village?"


Yellow Zebra really like Savanna, but the lodge’s proximity to the fence of Sabi Sand Reserve is a bit of a negative in our view. Availability can also be tricky at times, so if you do have your heart set on Savanna then try booking it well in advance.


Savanna is located in the western section of Sabi Sand Reserve and comprises an area of 10,000 hectares of land.


There are four luxury suites and three executive suites. All are built under canvas and have solid walls. The bathrooms contain a freestanding bath, in addition to indoor and outdoor showers. They open up onto a private deck area with great views of waterholes and the bush. The executive suites benefit from a comfortable sitting area and private plunge pools on the decks. These rooms are a bit secluded, to give guests more privacy.

The Savanna Suite is a beautiful two-bedroom house. It is connected by a large lounge area, which leads out onto private decking with plunge pools that overlook the watering hole. The suite is built under a thatch roof and has solid walls. It is perfect for families travelling together or couples that are looking for some seclusion.

Children under the age of 8 years are not permitted in the main lodge, but families can take the Savanna Suite and have the whole area to themselves. There is a bushbabies programme, which will keep the children busy and learning lots of exciting things about the bush.


  • Morning and afternoon game drives are available from the lodge, as are walking safaris on request.
  • The walking safaris are well worth it, as you get to focus on all the smaller things you tend to miss on the game drives. 
  • The manicured lawns in front of the lodge lead to the main pool area, which has spectacular views over the floodlit waterhole.
  • There is a viewing deck above the lounge area, where guests like to spend their time in between game drives.

*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
