Singita Sasakwa Lodge is a fabulous place, combining extreme luxury with great style. It has one of the best views in the Serengeti and sits on an escarpment overlooking the entire western corridor of the park with spectacular views of the plains.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Sasakwa Lodge is located in a private reserve in the western area of Serengeti National Park.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
It is designed in the style of a colonial manor, with stone walls, deep verandas, and high ceilings. There are nine luxurious cottages (six with one bedroom, two with two bedrooms and one with three bedrooms), as well as a larger private retreat with four bedrooms. They are all lavishly furnished with four-poster beds, chandeliers, hand-crafted furniture, silverware, ornaments, and some fabulous artwork. Each cottage has a spacious lounge, a sumptuous Victorian-style en-suite bathroom, and a heated infinity plunge pool on the large veranda outside.
Not only is Sasakwa Lodge Singita's flagship Tanzanian property and a member of the Relais & Châteaux Group, it is actually the owner's holiday home and far more comfortable and luxurious than a traditional safari lodge. Its food is some of the best in the country and its service of a very high level.
Game viewing is very good throughout the year, but it is at its best in May and June, when the Great Migration passes by. Many other activities are also available. These include lawn croquet, snooker, archery, tennis, mountain biking, and star gazing safaris. There is even an equestrian centre with 18 horses adjacent to the lodge, and balloon safaris can be arranged.
