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

If God were a camper, he would choose Sabora Tented Camp. It's truly heaven on Earth! Sabora is nestled in the middle of Singita's 350,000 acres, and is not fenced in. It's pure luxury with a leather tiled bathroom and all the amenities; crystal decanters filled with spirits; curtains tied back with leather buckled straps. There is an outdoor shower,... More

There are so many greats thing to say about Singita Sabora Tented Camp. First, the "tents" are very spacious, have wood floors with oriental carpets, full bath, wonderful outdoor shower, WiFi, electricity, fully screened, back deck where the animal viewing is fabulous - zebras, giraffes, wildebeests. Do not be swayed by staying in a "tent" - these are essentially rooms... More

Sabora has been for us such a wonderful experience. The level of tranquility around the tented camps are truly unparalleled, and when it was time for safari our friendly guide took us on wild adventures observing and experiencing nature. All the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. Highly recommended!

Sabora is a tented lodge where the zebras wander in and and out of the camp at leisure! A wonderful experience, sitting on your tent deck watching the animals stroll around . The food was excellent , the staff are all wonderful- anticipating your every need and the accommodation is certainly not what you would expect in a tent! (... More

We had two fantastic nights here. Faultless service. Perfect accommodation. Food spectacular. Staff went so far above the call of duty it was embarrassing. Not only were they efficient but each was a delightful person. We had a private celebration whilst we were there and somehow they had worked that out and laid on a private dinner for 4 as... More

Singita has to be the best management company for safari lodges. From the moment we were met at Singita's airstrip, the staff made us feel like we were the only guests. The lodging was far beyond our expectations in terms of a tented camp and the bed provided sleep that we haven't had in forever. Alfred was our guide and... More

We ended our safari with three nights at Singita Sabora hoping for good food, good safaris and to relax a bit. It is a very attractive place and the service is excellent. Given the cost and expectations I do have a few regrets. First, the tents are not air conditioned as advertised, but have an air conditioner that is only... 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

I don't know how to begin to describe our experience at Singita Sabora…It is everything that one expects from a truly indulgent bush experience. Tastefully appointed tent filled with antiques, huge 4 poster bed and bathtub with views, also come with a private deck and a day bed to feel the wilderness in complete privacy. You can sense pride in... More
