Little Savanna is a new restaurant that serves delicious, generous, food inspired by the homeland of one of its owner’s, Margie Holmes.

A tasty addition to Palmerston North’s dining scene, the restaurant emphasises locally sourced ingredients – and in a firm nod to South Africa’s famous braais – treats prime cuts of flame-grilled NZ beef, lamb and pork with serious care.  

We worked on the positioning, brand story and visual identity including the signage, menus, and staff uniforms. The palette is rich and earthy with the visual language taking it’s cues from the Savanna, along with the cooking methods – fire and charcoal. The iconic acacia tree logo signals a cool place for customers to relax and rest.

Little Savanna has been a huge success for the province, a new offering and experience for both locals and visitors.
