Singita’s Sasakwa Lodge is built on a grand scale, evoking the unapologetic luxury of a bygone era of African safaris and bringing every imaginable comfort to a wild unspoilt stretch of Tanzania. Set on a rocky promontory in Singita’s Grumeti Reserves on the northern edge of the Serengeti, the magnificent lodge overlooks sweeping vistas of endless plains in prime viewing country for the legendary wildebeest migration, with a year-round abundance of the Big Five, plains game and big cats.
Total privacy and seclusion are the watchwords in the luxurious stone cottages. Four-poster king-size beds draped in fine linen look through French doors to the wide view of the plains. A log fire crackles in the fireplace, its warmth reflected on the polished parquet floor. Leather armchairs, a seamless blend of contemporary and vintage furnishings, and a wide private veranda are completed by your private infinity plunge pool, possibly the best way to relax and soak up the view on hot summer afternoons. Spread out in your air-conditioned lounge and dressing room, and soak up the scented plant-based bath products in the elegant freestanding bath in the en-suite bathroom. Families and friends travelling together can choose a two-, three- or four-bedroom cottage, all with en-suite bathrooms and a shared lounge and infinity pool.
Fine dining and award-winning wines are just the starting point of the care that the Singita team puts into ensuring you the best possible personalised safari experience. Elegant meals on shady lawns, private dinners in the bush, lavish picnics in spectacular settings are all curated to a level that would do justice to the best restaurants anywhere in the world. Restore body and mind with sensual pampering at the spa or in the comfort of your cottage, swim lengths in the main pool while soaking up the immense sense of freedom from the big skies and expansive views at every turn, play a game or two of tennis or work out at the gym. All this in between awe-inspiring game drives witnessing vast herds scattered across the plains, peaceful giraffe browsing the treetops, spotting elusive leopard on one of the evening game drives, or experiencing the excitement of a pride of lions hunting. Or explore at a slower pace with a guided walking safari.
Enviably luxurious and impeccably maintained, Sasakwa Lodge could just spoil you for any other safari destination, its timeless grandeur making you wish to stay forever.
