The Savanna (also known as the Savannah) biome is a relatively flat and dry biome similar to the plains. Savanna biomes feature Acacia trees and flat terrain with tall hills occasionally generating. Horses and villages can also be found, as well as yellow grass.

The Savanna biome was officially released alongside three variations, which follow:
 Savanna Plateau
A plateau like in the mesa biome, is raised up to about 30 blocks above sea level. These make up much less of the area than in the mesa biome, but are easily seen as sudden walls of hill. Like the mesa plateau, they are very flat on top.
 Savanna M
A variation of the Savanna. These are quite rare, and consist of stone and grassless dirt (coarse dirt in 1.8), and are more mountainous than their regular counterpart. These mountains can almost reach the cloud limit, and sometimes go slightly above, even without using the AMPLIFIED world type.
 Savanna Plateau M
An extremely mountainous variation caused by the plateau and the M variation combining, with very steep hills very much around, with Acacia Trees atop them. The generation of this biome can cause several strange 'structures' to be created. Their peak has a huge range of altitudes. They can go above Y: 200 sometimes, whilst others don't reach the clouds. These have a huge amount of variation and are the closest to AMPLIFIED terrain on default. Like the M variation, these have a lot of exposed stone and grassless dirt.
