Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge
“Fabulous location, accommodation, food and service. The travel into the Ghoha Hills in a safari vehicle was long and bumpy and flying would perhaps be a better option for some people, however the landscape and animals made the drive worthwhile for me.” – Karen A
“This is one of the places in Africa that we will never forget. After a little bit of an adventurous and bumpy ride with our 4×4 car we were greated so warmly by Abram and his staff that we felt immediately at home. The tent was simply amazing, it had a second room for our daughter and everything was wonderfully decorated. From the lounge area you have a great view over a waterhole and over what we think a truly african landscape. We did an evening sunset tour and a whole day game drive which gave us both great animal sightings and a very good impression of the different landscapes of the Savuti area. The food was gorgeous, tasty and especially nicely arranged. Thanks to the whole team for these wonderful two days, we very much hope to come back one day!” – MomoFelix
