Savannah also has one of the BEST Wedding Venues in the Free State! When you get married at Savannah, the entire 3000 acre Game & Nature farm 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.
