An air of old-world glamour pervades the palatial canvas spread of Singita Sabora. The romance of Out of Africa combines with contemporary comfort in this enviably luxurious safari destination, which shares the wide 140 000-hectare expanse of the private Grumeti reserves adjoining the Serengeti National Park only with Singita’s exclusive lodge and two further intimate camps. Excellent year-round game-viewing culminates in the months of the Great Migration – there’s never a dull moment on safari in this incredibly beautiful and remote corner of Tanzania.
Lavish is the only word for the huge, beautifully furnished tented suites, starting with the four-poster bed through to the antique campaign furniture, Persian rugs, the glow of brass and reflected light of crystal. Tent-living is brought to a whole new level with air-conditioning, hot running water in the bath tent with free-standing bathtub and shower, and decadent details such as fresh flowers and silver candlesticks. Authentic local colour is brought in with Maasai blankets and traditional beadwork, and your canvas walls open straight out onto the wild plains where a scattering of day beds under shady trees entice you to afternoon siestas, or to cool off with a dip in the small swimming pool. There’s even a canvas-roofed gym, and a tennis court looking slightly surreal in the midst of the classic African landscape with a zebra in place of a ball boy.
Singita is renowned for its service and world-class cuisine, which is reflected in delicious, perfectly thought-out meals served at your whim: with elaborate silverware in the dining tent, romantically à deux under the stars beside a lamp-festooned tree, or as a picnic, always beautifully presented and with a superb selection of award-winning wines. For even more glamorous indulgence, nearby Sasakwa Lodge – with its spa, libraries, pool table, striking swimming pool and equestrian centre – is open to Sabora guests. On sunrise and sunset game drives escorted by knowledgeable experienced guides, you feel like the only people in these wide grasslands and immense African landscapes. This makes for an intimate and special safari experience, both during the majestic and thrilling migrations of the huge wildebeest herds and throughout the rest of the year, when wildlife of every description, including the Big Five, showcases the magic of the Serengeti safari.
