Savanna Lodge Facilities
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.
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 barman is constantly in attendance to ensure
the humans' thirst is just as adequately taken care of.
A viewing loft above the lounge makes a pleasant nook for a quiet game
of chess as well as a bird's eye view of the waterhole, while an adjoining
library provides wireless broadband internet access and offers guests
the means to transfer digital photographs, freshly captured on their safari,
onto CD or DVD.
Relaxation between game drives is important and what better way to unwind
than with an invigorating massage. Savanna's own qualified therapist offers
guests a range of treatments in the privacy of their suites. And, if a
little retail therapy is called for, a visit to the curio and gift shop
should do the trick.
Savanna offers excursions to nearby places of interest and scenic beauty
including the spectacular Panorama route and an African village.
Here guests visit the school and a traditional healer or medicine man
and learn about Shangaan culture and food. On a visit to an elephant sanctuary
guests feed and ride the gentle giants. Golf can be arranged
at Skukuza or the magnificent Leopard Creek course. These activities,
with the exception of golf at Leopard Creek, take place between game drives
so no meals or drives are missed.

all settings, with the vast African bush as a backdrop. You can select

bushbabies enjoy, if your child has any special needs, please be sure
