  • rooms

    There are 3 Executive and 4 Luxury Suites nestled amid indigenous trees offering a unique 'Out of Africa' experience with canvas roofs above draped ceilings set on permanent structures. All boast magnificent bathrooms and decks looking onto waterholes in the bush. In addition, the larger Executive Suites have plunge pools for cooling off after an exhilarating game drive.

  • facilities & activities

    Whilst 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, guests are frequently treated to fantastic views of birds and game drinking and bathing.

    A viewing loft above the lounge, with adjoining library, makes a pleasant nook for a quiet game of chess as well as a bird's eye view of the waterhole.

  • dining

    Gourmet dining is an essential component of the Savanna safari experience. Their delicious Breakfast & Lunch buffets are of the highest standard, with emphasis on quality & presentation.

    Candle-lit dinners, with traditional local dishes adding spice to the best international fare, are served on the deck of the main lodge. On balmy nights, sumptuous barbecues are enjoyed under the stars round a blazing fire in an open-air 'boma' or in a candle-lit clearing in the bush. Dinner is complimented by award winning wines, imported and local, from Savanna's well-stocked wine cellar.

  • family

    Children of all ages are welcome with their families when booking the Savanna Suite, however no children under the age of 8 years will be permitted at the main lodge.

    Each day there are two game drives, early morning and late afternoon. These game drives are broken up with a drink and snack break. Spoor identification, plant uses, Bird watching, butterfly and bug catching and picnics in the bush are just some of the exciting activities in the bush. At night children enjoy Star drives & ‘Frogging’ (catching & identifying frogs!).

    During the middle of the day, there are various activities for the children, this includes Arts & Crafts, baking, face painting and more.

    The Executive Suite can accommodate 2 extra beds for children under the age of 12 years, which will be placed in the same room as the parents. 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. Families adore the Savanna Suite for its ‘home-away-from-home’ feel and is ideal for 2 Adults & 2 Children.
