REOPENING 2020 RETURN TO THE SERENGETI PLAINS AND REDISCOVER SINGITA SABORA TENTED CAMP Striking the perfect balance between the spirit of classic tented safaris and timeless modernity, Singita Sabora Tented Camp is located right on the Serengeti plains, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the camp’s unrivalled setting and maximising the thrill of sleeping under canvas. In the main lodge, a unique “Guest Deli” boasts wicker baskets and fridges filled with gourmet bites, from which guests can select treats to enjoy in their suites. There’s a separate pool area, two intimate dining rooms and an open-plan bar and lounge – all adding to Sabora’s understated look, which emphasises tailored luxury. Offering superb game-viewing opportunities all year round, the camp is also set on the Great Wildebeest Migration route; and guided game walks on foot further enhance experiencing the Serengeti plains up close. Featuring nine tented suites set close to the ground, the camp echoes the earthy colour palette of the bush, while modern interpretations of campaign furniture evoke the romance of East African adventures. Each immaculate suite offers sweeping views, a meditation deck, a private fitness area and a secluded outdoor sala with daybeds and scatter cushions from where to marvel at the wildlife passing by. They also boast a beautifully curated kitchenette and dining area.

We arrived at Sabora January 6th 2021 and Godson picked us up and we arrived to the staff welcoming us. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and after lunch headed out to our first game drive. We have all been on several safaris but we were amazed of all the animals we saw s close. Many of the animals were mating and many of the animals had babies. The weather was cooler than I thought it was going to be but we were all prepared with layers and gloves and they had blankets. Godson was so knowledgeable and a great guide. They did an amazing job with the décor in the rooms and throughout the property. We worked out in the gym and I was very impressed with the gym. We will definitely go back to Singita Sabora Tented Camp.

Dear Natalie, Thank you for this lovely feedback. We are thrilled that you had such a wonderful stay with us. I will pass on the lovely compliments to Chef Vanie for all the wonderful meals, it was a such a pleasure to share our passion for food and wine with you . Godson is an asset to our team and we so pleased to hear he was able to hone his knowledge and expert skills to find all these incredible close-up sightings, especially all the Butamtam lion cubs you were able to find – I will certainly share this feedback with him! We are so glad that you appreciated our new interpretation of the tented safari and noticed all the subtle décor details that make this camp truly unique. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sabora again soon. Best regards, Robert and the Sabora family.

Our guide, Benson picked us up at private airstrip and immediately took us to tented camp where we were met by four staff members with a vat of warm, scented water and towels. Our butler, Sammy served us a lovely lunch with exceptional wine. We went out for a game drive in the afternoon with the amazing Benson and were not disappointed. We immediately came upon a leopard and his recent kill in the tree. We then made our way to the watering hole where we saw hippos, baboons, monkeys and zebra and had a lovely picnic. ..We arrived back at camp for a mouth watering dinner and excellent spirits. There is literally no request they aren't willing to indulge. We mentioned one night that it would be fun to try a Swahili dish. The next night we were served a Swahili feast. They even had dancers from the village there to meet us and perform. Days start early on the Serengeti and Sammy was kind enough to wake up and bring me coffee at 4:15 a.m. I also can't rave about Benson enough. He was so patient with our ever changing requests and needs. One need only look at him to be able to see he genuinely delights in his job. Each morning he would ask us what we wanted to see and every day we got exactly as we wanted and always a few bonuses along the way. He kept saying we were just "lucky" but the truth I suspect, is that he is very skilled. Take the leap,you won't be disappointed. We saw more animals than I have characters left to report. I can wholeheartedly say this is the best trip ever.

Dear Loryh890, Greetings from Africa! I read your review together with Semmy and Benson and they send their regards and are looking forward to your next stay with us. Asante sana (thank you so much) for writing such a beautiful review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the Omahe Traditional dancers who are part of the 21 villages surrounding our private concession. They come from the Kurya tribe of Tanzania and have several musical instruments including the zeze (which is like a primitive violin), and the ritungu (which is similar to a lyre with eight strings and is made out of wood and animal skins). Today, they are mostly made out of nylon strings and metal containers, but the drums are still made of wood and leather. Songs are also very important and were sung for a purpose – to communicate a message of victory, mourning, birth and marriage – and certain voices and tones are used to announce different events. Although the Kuria people still love to sing and dance, things have changed and the youth ignore old traditions and listen to songs on the radio. So, we are so glad that this was part of your experience at Singita Sabora Tented Camp. We hope to see you again soon. Warmest regards, Grace and the Singita Sabora family.

We had already been in Tanzania for 12 days and did not think we could be more impressed, but this Camp looked exactly like Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford complete with vintage automobiles in the front area. The antiques continued and not just in the public areas, but in your tents also. Everything but the refrigerator and over the bed air conditioning unit was vintage. Fine crystal adorned a table with a decanter of good dry sherry. The refrige was filled with soft drinks, wine, champagne and anything else you might ask for. (In our case, once again, someone informed them of our Zero Coke desire.) We thought the air conditioner was overkill until the afternoon siesta heat set in; in opposition, safari hats and full length body capes were so welcome in the cold mornings. Again, the Singita tradition of fine wines stood out, as well as, the menu and food preparation. We made it clear how impressed we were and received a private tour of the kitchen and a meeting with the chef, his staff and students from Grumeti Fund culinary school. Particularly wonderful was the emphasis on vegetables while never leaving you wishing for meat. The purchase of the Singita Cookbook might get us another taste of our favorites. We were assigned John as our guide and for three days had him all to ourselves. We don’t know why – we saw other vehicles with multiple couples going out – maybe they were traveling together. All we knew was that John and we got along famously, he was an advocate of patience while viewing wildlife (as are we) and we were in heaven. We could stay as long as we wanted or move on quickly if we so wished. Singita Sabora offers you the opportunity to visit nearby villages of Natal and Mugumu and we suggest you take advantage of that. It is so eye opening and worthwhile to meet families, see and shop the villages, visit the Eco School (EEC) and meet the students and see the fruits of their labor at the Farmers’ Market. We were so impressed with the alliance between Singita, the Grumeti Fund and the local people we came home determined to bring them a simple irrigation setup to make growing crops in Africa easier and more successful. Bottom line, Singita Sabora is a camp you have to visit – it is the best of the Serengeti whether you are neophytes or old veterans of Africa.

Dear Fannygus, Greetings from the Serengeti! It is always a pleasure to read such a beautiful review of our lodge. I agree that the tents are amazing, they are reminiscent of an opulent 1920s yesteryear styled hunter's camp. Singita Sabora Tented Camp is the ultimate choice for a top notch, indulgent and inspiring African tour. African-Mecca guests who come to Tanzania on their vacation are welcomed to some of the most aesthetically spectacular tented accommodation in Serengeti that is quietly sophisticated and caters to every modern-day comfort for the discerning traveller. On arrival you are greeted by antique mahogany furnishings, crisp white linen, opulent Persian mats and silky draperies blowing in the breeze in each one of the beautifully appointed canvas rooms. The resident zebras, impalas, tope, giraffes and buffalo add to the uniqueness of Singita Sabora Tented Camp. We are also glad to hear that the food and game drive experience exceeded your expectations. We hope to see you soon! Warmest regards, Grace and the Singita Sabora family.
