is located in Sabi Sand West
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated close to the main road entrance into the reserve, Savanna Lodge is has pleasant open-sided public areas, a decent swimming pool, outside dining boma and gym. Guest accommodation is in four luxury, three executive and two suite rooms. The hosting is very good.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari, with wildlife in this Sabi Sand West area being excellent year round. The camp has a reputation for excellent guiding.
The main potential downsides are that the lodge is a rather old fashioned build and is set in manicured gardens. It is also relatively expensive. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
The presence in this Sabi Sand West area of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs, as well as heavy urbanisation immediately to the west, actually in view of the lodge, does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, more here than almost anywhere else in the Kruger Private Reserves.SeasonsPrices
