We were recently on our 12th Safari trip to Africa. We stayed at Sasakwa for the second time, and it is amazing that there can be a place like this in the middle of the Serengeti Plains. Everything was, once again, perfect. Paul Tudor Jones has built a masterpiece, and Singita runs the operation with the skill that it deserves.... More

For many reasons, it's a bit hard to capture the Singita Sasakwa in a review. I'm only giving it a try because we did quite a bit of research before booking, and we still struggled to understand exactly what this resort is all about, so here's my attempt at helping. In short, the Sasakwa lodge is likely the nicest resort... More

I apologise in advance for the excessive use of superlatives that you are likely to have to endure if you manage to persevere to the end of this, but it is almost impossible to do justice to this fabulous lodge and the wonderful team that runs it, using words. We love Africa, and are very picky about where we do... More

We statued at all of the Singita properties with this being the last. It is clearly the most luxurious of their properties here and the ideal last stop on our 10 day Safari. The cottages(more like small homes) are stunning and huge. The staff and service level are among the best I have ever experienced. The drivers are the most... More

My husband and I stayed at Sasakwa, Sabora, and Faru Faru. The Grumeti lodges are magical. The service is superb. This was the best overall experience we've ever had, and we enjoy luxury travel. We had an incredible guide named Joe who went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. He was truly superb. In fact, everyone provided... More

Having had the best holiday ever last year (2013), my husband and I decided to share the amazing experience with our two younger daughters, both of whom are very competent riders. The trip did not disappoint - the same excellent level of service and luxurious surroundings at Sasakwa Lodge then meeting and getting to know our horses, a quick ride... More

If you can afford to come here (it's pricy) do so. Very well worth the cost. Spectacular lodge on top of a hill overlooking the Serengeti. Cottages that are the size of small houses, with wonderful furnishings. Personal service at every turn. Your own guide. Your own waiter. And do NOT try to carry anything, even your camera bag, someone... More

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.
