I cannot express what a marvelous vacation this was. From the very moment you arrive with warm eucalyptus infused washclothes and drink, this is special. The lodge is located on a hill overlooking the Singita Grumeti reserve. Each beautiful, private cottage have its own heated infinity pool. Service is outstanding. They always know where you are and aready to serve... More

We spent a few days at Sasakwa Lodge in August 2014 as part of a trip to Tanzania. It was without doubt the highlight of our trip. The service is perfection from the moment we were met from our flight at the small airport, to being greeted by the very charming managers Brad and Kate as well as having the... More

My wife and I and our grown daughters travelled to Tanzania last month and had the pleasure of spending three nights at Sasakwa. We are well-travelled and have stayed at many wonderful properties, including Singita Boulders, a fellow Singita property at Sabi Sands. Nothing we have ever experienced could approach the food, the beauty of the Lodge, and most of... More

At Grumeti airport I contacted the manager by phone to let him know I would like to come and inspect the property for a few minutes and get some quotes and information. It was extremely difficult getting through on the phone as they frequently jet didm''t... More

This review is a bit past due but I felt guilty not giving this property its full praise. Simply put the staff is perfect and beyond caring and accommodating, from the managers to the waitstaff and everyone else. The property is beautiful and perfectly manicured with the plunge pools in the lodges providing idealistic views over the Serengeti. The staff... More

After honeymooning in Singita Lebombo back in 2009 and being blown away, we decided to celebrate our 5 year anniversary at another Singita property and boy are we glad we chose the Grumeti Reserve property. Our visit was in early May and we stayed 2 nights at Sabora and 2 nights at Faru Faru and we visited Sasakwa for lunch... More

We had an incredible time at Singita Sasakwa! The place was perfect, the staff just charming and the game drive personnel really knew their game! It made our stay exceptional. Of all the places we stayed, this was the best!

Sasakwa is a beautiful lodge. However, it was my least favorite of the three Singita properties I visited in Grumeti. There is not much too fault objectively. The rooms are great, service is fantastic and the food excellent. Nevertheless, Sasakwa, despite its only ten cottages, feels like a much bigger operation than Faru Faru and Sabora. The place does feel... More

Singing the praises of this lodge does not do it justice. In every conceivable category - accommodations, service, dining, location, views, game drives - it is hard to imagine any place anywhere which surpasses it. The one bedroom accommodations, with incredible furnishings and attention to detail, sweeping views of the Serengeti plains below, large living room, bedroom and bathrooms and... More

This lodge is a dream, located in the most beautiful part of northern Tanzania. The Sasakwa lodge is located at the hill with a breathtaking view. You are facing a high end luxury stay, but no jet set style. Expensive, but value for money. We stayed with our whole family (parents and 3 children, age 13, 15, 17 years) in... More
