The “Savanna” was founded in 2008 by the sympathetic family Gebreselassie and is operated since then also on its own. The Gebreselassis moved from Kassel to Berlin in 2007 and you soon noticed that there are hardly any African restaurants in Berlin. The two took advantage of this fact and their great interest in the African-Eritrean kitchen and opened their first restaurant – the Savanna.
In search of a suitable place, you soon became aware of the district “Mitte / Prenzlauer Berg”, as there were already numerous restaurants/bars/ venues to be found. This district offers, for example, with the “Kulturbrauerei” around the corner a place where concerts, cinemas, discotheques, galleries, etc have found an impressive location and today belong to one of the most famous tourist highlights. But also the historical “Käthe Kollwitz – Platz” around the corner invites you to stroll and discover. So, the right place was found, it could start!
Since then, many Berliners and tourists from all over the world have come to know this unique cuisine. How chicken, pork or beef tastes white. But what is the taste of antelope, ostrich or crocodile meat? Many have enjoyed this here for the first time.
