Singita Sasakwa Lodge is a turn-of-the-century-style manor house steeped in the grandeur of a bygone age. Located on the unfenced slopes of Sasakwa Hill in the 141 000-hectare Grumeti Reserve in Tanzania, it enjoys sweeping views over the endless plains of the Serengeti to the blue hills on the distant horizon.
The Serengeti is the scene of one of nature’s greatest spectacles when in excess of a million wildebeest, zebra and gazelles migrate through the region on their endless quest in search of fresh grazing and water. Undeterred by a host of predators that lie in wait or perilous river crossings teeming with crocodiles, blind instinct drives the herds forward in a relentless dance of life and death. At Singita Sasakwa you are able to ride on horseback to witness the herds, revelling in the absolute freedom of the wind and the pounding of hooves all around you. Year-round game drives both in and out of the Migration season consistently produce excellent Big 5 sightings, not to mention other lesser-seen creatures such as bat-eared foxes.
There are 10 private cottages at Singita Sasakwa Lodge in 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom configurations, each with their own infinity plunge pool overlooking the plains. Your butler will ensure impeccable service, right down to keeping your favourite white wine on ice for you to enjoy in the wood-panelled bar while playing a game of snooker. Adults can unwind in the gym and spa or on the tennis and archery courts while children have a special programme that includes a mini ranger course and baking with the skilled chefs. Stately, gracious and refined, Singita Sasakwa Lodge provides only the very best in service, accommodation and game viewing.
