I travelled from Australia all the way to Grumeti Rver to organise my honeymoon. 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

The service, staff and experience at this lodge make it the very best. It deserves to be ranked at the top of the list of lodges. Do the walking tour after your game drive - it is a well kept secret. Aloise is an excellent guide and he will ensure that you see all the wildlife.

After spending 4 days in the lovely tented camp at Sabora, we went to Sasakwa lodge. My son Daan (13 years old) and I were already mind-blown by the experience at Sabora, but arriving at Sasakwa lodge we were speechless. Though we were prepared by my sister Bea and her husband Karl-Heinz, who had invited us for this amazing trip,... More

Having stayed at many safari lodges and camps, I can say with confidence that this property has the very best of accommodation and service that the area has to offer. The wildlife populations vary according to time of year, however, this is a private reserve and great care is taken to protect the wildlife here. The staff is excellent and... More
