Savanna Game Lodge is situated in the internationally famous 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 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.
The beautifully appointed suites nestle amongst indigenous bush and trees that provide privacy, quiet and a haven for birds. The epitome of elegance and comfort, the décor is a blend of colonial and classic with hand crafted furniture, fine linen and beautiful artwork. Three Executive and four Luxury Suites offer a unique 'Out of Africa' experience with canvas roofs above draped ceilings set on permanent structures. All have magnificent bathrooms and decks looking onto waterholes in the bush. In addition, the larger Executive Suites have plunge pools. 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. The bedroom suites with their individual bathrooms, can also be booked separately, in which case they would not include the lounge, private vehicle and guides which are part of the Savanna Suite package.
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. During the middle of the day, there are various activities for the children.
A children’s menu is available on request with all the foods that bushbabies enjoy, if your child has any special needs, please be sure to advise us in advance. Each child receives a goodie bush bag with items to add to their safari experience. All items collected from the activities during your child’s stay will be put together in a scrapbook, showing all the items they learned about and have collected. As the children enjoy different activities and are of varying ages, a daily programme will be put together according to their interests. The various activities included during your child’s stay are:
Spoor identification: Tracking of small animals with your tracker and guide: find our Small 5. This concentrates on teaching children the different spoor and droppings of animals as well as tracking techniques. Children can be taught how to follow animals and look for distinguishing signs. Plant uses: Plant identification as well as the medicinal and practical uses of these plants. Children can collect different plants during their walk and discover what can be used as substitutes for toothbrushes, toilet paper etc.
Bird watching: Identify the different species of birds. The field guide will explain how to do this from various visual aspects, as well as from bird calls. Butterfly and bug catching: Find the smaller creatures such as butterflies, lizards, etc. Picnics in the bush: Enjoy a picnic lunch where you can investigate the nearby surroundings and collect goodies for your scrap book. Village Tour: One of our trackers will take the family on a village tour, which includes seeing the nursery school, seeing the traditional homes and learning how they make their food. There are also traditional dancers. An additional option is a visit to the Lilydale Primary School.
