Words cannot describe how our experience exceeded every expectation. I am in the travel industry and previously lived in Africa for 2 years. While I have had many fabulous stays around the globe, Sabora will be near to our heart. I visited Sabora with my daughter to celebrate her 13th birthday. As an entrepreneur and single parent there is not... More

We stayed at three Singita camps while in Tanzania. Sabora's authentic British Colonial "old world" explorers camp blew us away. The décor details magnificently expressed a bygone era, felt as though we were transported back in time with all of the best of modern conveniences. Extremely comfortable and visually elegant. Especially loved the positioning of our tent #9 at the... More

Sabora Tented Camp lived up to the reviews. The tent including the bathroom was spacious, well-decorated to create the authentic atmosphere of the turn of the century living in Africa. Nonetheless, they had all the modern facilities to provide guests with greatest comfort - air-conditioning, wi-fi and a pool. The food was delicious. The menu & wine list changed everyday.... More

Wow! Super romantic, opulent and feeling like a Sultan out of the '50's describe the Singita Sabora camp only just. We stayed 3 nights in all 3 Tanzania Singita camps (Mara river, Sabora and Sasakwa)and all provided excellent personal and overall service. The personal butler really works in these camps and they bring pampering to a new height. All sites... More

From the moment we were picked up at the landing strip by our guide, my friends & I the experience was amazing (of course, the herd of elephants helped!) We were treated like royalty & having just summited Kili, we welcomed the indulgence! Our tents were spectacular - nicer than any hotel I've ever stayed in, with a claw foot... More

Sabora is perhaps the most special of the Singita Grumeti properties. The feeling of being part of the Serengeti ecosystem and landscape was certainly unique. Having a tennis court and swimming pool in the middle of this vast expanse was obviously surreal. Overall, as expected for a Singita property, the service was excellent, as was the food. The starlit outdoor... More

We highly enjoyed our stay at the Singita Sabora tented camp. From the minute we arrived it was obvious the service was going to be excellent and we were not disappointed. The ambiance was that of an older but yet very elegant camp in a very comfortable setting. Out of all the camps we visited this had the best food... More

The Sabora Tented camp is an incredibly luxurious set of tented "rooms." Each tenst has a living/sleeping area, luxurious bath and outdoor shower. Each tent has a terrace and day be and a nice view out onto the Serengeti plains. They even have A/C! The camp is quite nice with a wonderful central restaurant and lounge tent, a workout facility,... More
