Savannah Game and River Retreat is located on 3000 acres of unspoiled African bush and offer guests a tranquil and relaxing bush veld stay.
We are situated in the Free State just outside Parys nestled in the Vredefort Dome World Heritage Site. We border 8km of the Vaal River and are home to 25 mammal species which include Buffalo, Giraffe, Sable, Zebra, Eiland, Blesbok and Kudu.
Our photo opportunities are endless with grass planes, vibrant sunsets, bushveld, mountains, wild animals, Sotho ruins and the Vaal River to name but a few.
When visiting this beautiful game reserve, guests have a choice of staying in one of the 6 comfortable Luxury Tented Chalets that overlook the bush veld. There are 8 Lodge Rooms and 2 Rondavels next to the swimming pool. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms.
A cash bar is available on the premises. Guests can relax around the pool with a sun downer and enjoy a bonfire in the African Boma.
All room rates include breakfast and served on the viewing deck. Menus for lunch and dinner are available.

We also cater for groups, bachelor/ette parties, conference groups, team building, birthday parties, baby showers and almost anything you can think of!
Savannah has a wonderful WEDDING VENUE. When you get married at Savannah, the entire 3000 acre Game & Nature Reserve is exclusively yours. The open-air Chapel is surrounded with exquisite white Stinkhout trees and is directly on the banks of the Vaal River. While saying I do the river quietly meanders past and the sun set explodes in brilliant colours of orange and red against the mountains of the Vredefort Dome. The tranquillity of the beautiful surroundings engulfs the ones with love and peace, gathered to witness the union of two souls. Hear the call of the fish eagle searching for its mate while perched in a tree nearby.
See you soon!
