The Szavanna Trail offers two trail races, approximately 10km and 23km long, through the Velencei-hegység (Velence Hills), a small hill range that rises above the northern shore of Velencei-tó (Lake Velence) in Hungary.

Starting and ending in the village of Pákozd, 50 kilometres south-west of Budapest, the route runs across savanna-style grassland with scattered trees and shrubs and through beautiful woods, passing several rather unusual rock formations.

The 10.4km race is held on the hill above Pákozd, Sár-hegy, and includes 208m of ascent.

The 22.8km race features 558m of ascent. The route also visits the upper slopes of Meleg-hegy (352m), the highest of the Velence Hills:
