Savanna Private Game Lodge-Kruger National Park, South Africa

I flew to South Africa with South African Airways the inflight service was great.
We stayed at Savanna Private Game Lodge, an exclusive 5 star lodge located in the internationally famous Sabi Sand Reserve within Kruger National Park. Our luxury tented suite offered the full ‘African experience’ of camping but in a solid building with a tented roof! All suites also have magnificent bathrooms and decks looking onto waterholes in the bush.

All meals and drinks are included in your stay- even the mini bar. Dinner time at the lodge is all guests together at one long dinner table where everyone excitedly chats about their safari sightings for the day.

As animals sleep in the heat of the day game drives are always early morning and late afternoon when the animals are more active. The game viewing was amazing. We saw the Big 5 on Day 1 due to our experienced trackers and guides (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo). A highlight of this Game Lodge is when you return from an evening game drive, and by then it is a tad chilly, and they have a hot bath poured for you in your tent with a glass of port waiting beside it! So luxurious- they really do think of everything.

A must do is sundowner drinks as the sunsets are so spectacular in Africa! We actually had a very exciting experience standing by our safari jeep, enjoying ‘Sundowner drinks”, watching the sunset when two lioness appeared in the distance and started strolling towards us. Chaos ensued with a mad scramble by all to get back in the vehicle, and much laughter afterwards at our close (but not really close) encounter.

Africa is a truly wonderful experience!
