Sabora feels authentic and real. It is unlike anything else you will experience in the Serengeti and top quality. The guide, Aloise, ensures excellent drives, the chef attends to your every need (ask him to make you a chocolate fondant), and Jacquelyn manages all to perfection.

Having visited both Sabora Tented Camp and Sasakwa Lodge with friends last October, we now took my brother and his 13-year old son , who is a real nature and wildlife lover, to the beautiful Serengeti and the "out of this world" Singita experience... We requested for the same guide we had in October (Mathew) and the same waiter (Tesha)... More

In May, 2013, my wife and I celebrated our honeymoon over the course of 6 spectacular days/nights at the Singita Grumeti Faru Faru Lodge and Sabora Tented Camp. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a more magical experience. As a back-to-back winner of Travel and Leisure’s World’s Best Hotel, one’s expectations are quite high. To surpass those... More

The service and the desire to please is better than ever experienced before. It is that good. The staff is perfect. The location for the plains is fantastic with endless views and frequent visits of many wildlife (giraffes, baboons, zebras etc.). The food is perfect with a changing menu and food that rivals the best cuisine. If you like the... More

We started our Safari here at Sabora. If my memory serves me correct "Sabora" means (meant) land with nothing. This was before the reserve started to restore the animals back to area. This permanet tented camp is a beautiful place,the wildlife walks just past your tent, and at night they are brave enough to graze next to your tent. It... More

All the decor helped to make us feel that we were back in colonial Africa. Our dinner by lamplight under the tree was delightful and private. Relaxing on my daybed was a total treat. A smaller camp which made it more intimate. Being surrounded by a herd of 5000 wildebeest, grunting through the night was unforgettable!

Singita Sabora is about as good as "camping" can get. Great property and facilities, and a great staff. I can't single any one person out because all were so good. As for the tents, they are better accommodations than most Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton hotel rooms that we have stayed in. We could happily stay here and relax even... More

It is so difficult to describe Sabora Tented Camp and feel like I will do it any justice but after staying there for four days, it is easy to see how Grumeti Reserve ranked as the 2012 #1 hotel in the world. We were met at the airstrip by a lovely young man named Simon. Simon, while not our guide... More

All I know is that we've never felt more like Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. The word "tented" is almost a misnomer for the magnificence that surrounds you. The lights from chandeliers twinkle on the silver and Irish crystal that grace the tables. Antique appointments are everywhere and comfort welcomes you after a day of animal viewing. Expensive? Yes. Worth... More

Our family trip to the Singita Grumeti Private Reserve properties was beyond comparison! We had the privalege of staying at both the Singita Sabora Tented Camp and the Sasakwa Lodge. Each were unique settings in themselves, but by visiting both of these properties we were able to have totally different experiences, while emersed in Ernest Hemingway style and grace. Being... More
