Savanna's top destinations

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Clean, charming, colorful, and a gorgeous forest hike to a fairy-like castle in the middle of the city...need I say more?

Istanbul, Turkey

Being a crazy cat lady, this city felt like I had arrived in heaven with the abundance of cats that are so well cared for and loved by locals. Spending a month in this vibrant city felt like a new adventure every day, exploring the many districts and hidden gems!

Ella, Sri Lanka

This laid-back town kept me extending my time here while I was backpacking through Sri Lanka. From the breathtaking hikes to the vibey cafes and eateries, I felt at peace and at home in Ella.
