About Savanna Lodge
An exclusive 5 star lodge, Savanna is situated in the internationally renowned Sabi Sand Reserve within the greater Kruger National Park conservancy. 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 of arrival 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 Private Game Lodge is situated in the Western sector of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The park's name comes from the Sabie River on its southern boundary and the Sand River flowing through it. The area of the reserve is 65,000 hectare and it shares a non-fenced boundary of 50 km with the Kruger National Park to its east.

When to go
The best wildlife viewing time in Sabi Sands is during the winter while the dry season lasts from May to September. Animals are easy to spot during the dry months as foliage becomes less abundant and animals gather around rivers and waterholes. Since wildlife viewing improves as time goes on, September is the most attractive time to visit. It is also the least cold of all the winter months.
Guests may arrive any time from noon, and the rooms are to be vacated by 11AM. Please note that the game drive departs at 4PM in summer and 3.30PM in winter.
Triple rooms are available on a request basis and subject to availability and lodge numbers.
Please consult your doctor about various anti-malaria precautions to take when visiting Savanna Lodge.
