Serengeti Grumeti Reserve, Tanzania
Platinum price level
Sasakawa is the flagship in the Grumeti Reserves. The rooms and lodge are stunning and lavish. The Grumeti corridor is a gorgeous and totally exclusive area. This is a spectacular location for viewing the annual wildebeest migration from May to July as it makes its way North towards the Masai Mara. If you like riding, this this is a dream ticket. Or an amazing wilderness retreat at the end of an adventurous safari.
Epitomizing refined splendor and old-world luxury, Singita Sasakwa Lodge allows guests a front-row seat to the prolific wildlife in the 350,000-acre private Singita Grumeti Reserve, ensuring an unparalleled African safari experience.
The lodge is built in the style of a stately Edwardian manor house with nine private cottages, each with its own infinity pool. The spacious cottages offer expansive en-suite bathrooms, dressing areas, four-poster beds, fireplaces, living rooms and French doors opening onto welcoming verandas. Set alongside Singita Sasakwa Lodge is our new Hillside Suite: Arriving at Hillside Suite feels like escaping to your own edge of the world, where infinite views over the Serengeti plains are par for the course. A private villa for two, it’s set away from the main lodge and invites authentic encounters with nature, while every wish is tended to intuitively, all features are aimed at the utmost exclusivity and intimacy. Polished parquet floors, vintage collectables, Persian carpets and comfortable furnishings all add to Sasakwa’s unmistakable elegance, while contemporary interpretations of classic dishes underpin the culinary offerings in the grand dining room.
A grand entrance, wraparound verandas, silver candelabras and coveted antiques merge seamlessly with local artefacts and tribal cushions to create a quintessential luxury safari experience. Elegant lunches on the lawn, bespoke wine-paired dinners, leisure activities like tennis, bush walks and soothing spa treatments all add to the appeal.
