Surrounded By Beauty At Savanna Lodge in Sabi Sands

Posted by on
The first member of our welcoming party at Savanna Lodge, Sabi Sands, South Africa.
Upon arrival in our private Executive Suite tented cabana at Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands Kruger National Park Conservancy in South Africa, we were immediately surrounded by beauty on both sides. Before we even stepped foot in our tented suite we were stunned by the spacious luxury cabana in the bush and were just relishing in the moment of our new home when we heard a deep breath behind us and turned around to see a lone elephant had just arrived for a drink at the private waterhole in our back yard. She was just yards away (but separated by a low-lying electric fence) which her and us some comfort!
Looking one way we first were stunned by the beauty of our tented cabana at Savanna Lodge.
So, we dropped our day packs, quickly grabbed cameras and now turned our attention to the beauty of the wild outside our back patio. The young female drank from the pond and took her time pulling up the reeds and munching away. We stepped forward a little closer and she took little notice of us as we sat on the lawn with a completely unobstructed view to watch.

We watched in awe, and in very close proximity, from the front of our tent. 
Then, much to our surprise and delight another elephant arrived, and then another, and another with baby and before we had even entered our tent and unzipped our luggage we were experiencing an amazing wildlife encounter on safari in Africa right from the privacy of our own cabana at Savanna Lodge. And we hadn't even been out on a game drive here yet! (More on that forthcoming in another blog so register to receive my next blog for details, images and videos.)

Then the rest of the herd arrived with two babies in tow.
See the live-action video below!
Finally our welcoming party meandered on and we finished our room check-in with time to enjoy our new quarters in the bush before we headed out on our first game drive in Sabi Sands
Our suite had an out-sized bathroom with free-standing bath, double vanities, and double shower. 
 
There is also a spacious outdoor shower.
keeping it wild,

For more information, we included Savanna Lodge on our South Africa Honeymoon Adventure, and often feature it on custom trips in the Sabi Sand Kruger Conservancy.
