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.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at Sabora, and wish we would have stayed longer. I never write reviews, but this place made a huge impression on me. It was a perfect experience in a perfect setting. Edward, Babs, and Fabio are the managers and they are the kindest and so warm and welcoming. They have an excellent thing going at Sabora. Everyone in this camp anticipates every single need of their guests. Our personal butler was Samora and he was outstanding and made the best early morning lattes and arranged a beautiful sundowners for us. He really made a lasting impression on us. Our guide was Medard and he made our Sabora experience magical. We saw so many animals in our short stay. He treated us like family, and we can’t wait to return. I could go on and on, but all I can say is go, go to this camp and experience excellence in the bush because you won’t be dissatisfied. Make sure you get a massage by Tunu because she does a wonderful job. The Chef Sean Paul is perfection. The food was delicious.

It was my fifth visit to Singita Grumeti, I admit that when I've learned that they had remodeled the charmingly beautiful Sabora Tented Camp I was somewhat worried, after all it was pure charm and beauty. But, what a nice surprise it was to see how beautifully the redecoration was! Not to mention the impeccable service and stunning location.

What an amazing place with incredible people! The entire team at Sabora was outstanding and the accommodations were excellent. Peterlis was our guide and what an amazing wealth of information, incredible guide and an exceptional person. Food and wine was outstanding and Gerson was on our every need. I can't speak highly enough of our family experience and we only wish we stayed longer! Can't wait to go back. Thank you to the team at Singita Sabora you are all first class.

Singita Sabora Tented Camp Is truly one of the best properties that I have ever been to. The service was impeccable. The people were incredible. They paid attention to the details. The food was basically Michelin starred. The property was remodeled a couple of years ago. It is amazing. They are able to combine the feel of the outdoors with luxury. Our game safaris were also next level. The property is private, so there are very few vehicles. The vehicles are insta worthy and very comfortable. We were able to get right up to animals since the reserve is private. Our guide, Peterlis, might as well have a PhD in zoology... his knowledge and ability to find animals was outstanding. He taught us so much about the wildlife and listened to what we wanted to see. He made our trip special by doing breakfasts and champagne sunset hours in the bush. My family can not wait to come back. Sabora allowed us to have fun and relax at the same time. We were able to really connect as a family. Thank you to Peterlis (guide), Grace (manager), Gercon (wait staff), and Sohn (sommelier).... they were amazing.

Sabora tops all the other places we’ve been to in our trip to Tanzania. Being in a private game reserve is a different experience. Very relaxing, welcoming and friendly. Above all it is the people who make this place so special. Service is beyond any imagination. So kind, generous, attentive, welcoming and always with a big smile. Staff is giving you a feeling that you are at home. Guides of the Safari are excellent, knowledgeable and will do everything to fulfill your Safari requests. Food is outstandingly, delicious, fresh and creative. Tents are specious and fully equipped. Interior design is superb and merges beautifully with the wild outside. Staying in Sabora was the highlight of our trip. We miss you already!! will definitely come again!

We have stayed at quite a few safari camps and this was one of my very favorites. Calling this a tented camp is a bit of a misnomer as it doesn’t give you a picture of the luxury of the camp. The chef is absolutely first rate as are all the staff. Don’t miss this location if you go to Tanzania.

I've been home for about 24 hours. All I can do is think about Singita Sabora. I really have trouble describing the people, the service, and the game reserve. I'll try. I've traveled to 41 countries and been to several of them more than 5 times. Ive probably made 200 trips out of the USA. I've stayed in some fantastic places. Ive stayed with families in the middle of the jungle. I've stayed in some of the top hotels in the world. Nothing compares to Singita. The intuitiveness of the staff was uncanny. It's like they have known you for a long time. Richard, our host for the week, was beyond excellent. He remembers everything you like to eat, drink, and do and is impeccable in his service and presentation. I told him that he could teach the servers in Dallas so much. Especially how to become friends while making sure they are taken care of. He was a master of this! Jeremiah, our safari guide for the week, knew everything about the animals in Grumeti. He made the game drives come alive. He was so fun to be around. His smile is contagious. His ability to spot animals was amazing to see. The coffee and snack breaks we had on the drive were done so well. I've never missed a staff member from a lodging but I miss Richard and Jeremiah. The food is unbelievable. My wife is gluten free and we never had to worry once about the food. Every day I wondered how they pulled off the menu in such a remote and gloriously isolated place! It was beyond 5 star dining every meal. It's like eating a meal with the best members of your family at the most expensive restaurant in Dallas for every meal. The tent was so beautiful. Edward, the from of house manager, made sure everything was perfect. We always had everything we needed. They know what spirits you enjoy and have a bottle of each in your room for you to enjoy. The wines at dinner and in the room are unbelievable. Its like everyone there has the soul (intentionally spelled) mission to make it the best week of your life. I'll stop now but if you are looking to do a safari, this is the place. Actually if you are looking to do anything, this is the place. It is by far the best place I have ever stayed. I've stayed at places in the T&L top 20 and Conde Nast Gold List and Singita should have its own category. Its not even fair for it to be in the same list as the ones I've stayed with. I don't get emotionally expressive often, especially with sadness about leaving a place. But I'm sad that I'm not there. I'm sad that I don't get to see Richard, Jeremiah, and Edward. I'm sad that I don't get to eat Singita's food. I'm sad that I'm not looking at Giraffes, Cape Buffalo, impalas, zebra, and 100's of birds outside my tent. I want to go back and I will go back. Thank you Singita Sabora Tented Camp for making me so happy to be at a place that I'm sad I'm not there. See you soon...

We arrived to Singita Sabora after about 30+ hours of traveling. We were very tired and hungry. The staff gave us such a warm welcome the moment we landed and stepped foot on the ground! They prepared a delicious lunch for us and brought it to the room once we landed since they knew we were hungry! The service was more than 5 stars! There is something about Sabora that is absolutely magical! It has an intimate feeling, and although it’s called a “tented camp”, you truly feel like you are in a home and that every detail of the place was thought of. To the point where in the room you have automatic sensors for light for when you walk around the room in the middle of the night, that way you don’t need to look for the switch. Everything you could think that you want, somebody already thought of it and took care of it so that you have the best of the best experience. The camp is gorgeous! The interior and exterior design is out of a catalog. I don’t think videos of photos do it’s justice here! You just need to be there to experience the whole thing. I need to also talk about the food. It is gourmet, every meal is a 5 Michelin star meal. Incredible. Staying there for 3 nights, we already felt like a family with the staff. Michael our waiter was just so accommodating to all of our needs with a huge smile on his face. He made sure to set up each and every meal in the most special setting. Esther and Edward greeted us with open arms to the camp, and we are so thankful for everything they did to make our stay unforgettable. Our guide Calson was with us from the moment we landed and even continued with us to our next stay at Sasakwa for an additional 3 nights and he was more than just a guide. He brought his positive perspective to life and the safari, and we learned so much from him. He made it his absolute mission to show us everything he can, and we saw all of the big 5 probably within the first 2-3 days :) We really miss Sebora and the staff and for sure will come back! Thank you SO much!

In short, both lodges (Singita Sabora and Faru Faru) were incredible, different in many ways and similar in the crucial elements of service, food, and wine. Singita Sabora was undoubtedly the most subtly enchanting, but sophisticated, and superbly stylish lodge we have ever stayed in. Every little piece of furniture, every piece of artwork or amenity, from the place mats and cutlery, to the furnishings and glassware…just immaculate and classy in every way. The service levels were impeccable, from the delightfully friendly management team of Esther, Angel and Victoria, to our super-friendly and efficient waiter Samora and houseman Winyana. The whole team was a true credit to Singita, providing professional, but friendly service, with a delicate but important Tanzanian flare. Faru Faru was a magnificent complement to our first three days at Sabora, with a completely different vibe, but equally impressive style and accompanied by fabulously friendly service with unforced smiles in abundance. We loved our time at Faru Faru and the lodge is truly blessed with a really superb management team (K, Joyce, and Sinta) and a fantastically welcoming and extremely efficient service team. The confidence and humour brought by our waiter Gendi (accompanied by Rama and Stella) resulted in many long meals in the collection of Faru Faru dining areas. The food was simply sublime, incredibly light and tasty, but class all the way. Our wine experience was truly special – Dean is an absolute credit to Singita and fulfils his role with expertise and charm. His dedication to the Singita kitchen team, and the manner in which he works with them to provide magnificent wine pairings, is a prime example of what sets Singita apart. Our wonderful Rafiki (friend) Medard was a Guide of extreme knowledge: wonderfully charming, attentive in every way, and someone who I would highly recommend. Our six days with him were extraordinary in every way, and he was without a doubt a major reason for this trip being one of the greatest experiences of our lives. We had six days in an area that can comfortably be described as Eden (but an Eden with a lot of dead animals, as the predators were enjoying themselves as much as we were!! ). The sightings, and pure abundance of game and birdlife, far exceeded our lofty expectations. The entire Singita Grumeti setting, with views of massive open plains, constantly shifting as the vast herds moved through them, will be a memory we enjoy forever. We will be back. And we will bring others!!
