Located in the game-rich Grumeti Reserves in northern Tanzania, Singita Sasakwa Lodge is a refurbished turn of the century manor house with modern luxuries and old-world elegance.
The nine cottages and one private retreat overlook the iconic Serengeti plains. Each luxury cottage consists of a beautifully appointed bedroom with a four-poster bed, an en suite bathroom, a lounge with a fireplace, a dressing area, a powder room, a veranda with a Swarovski spotting scope, and a heated infinity plunge pool. The private retreat shares the same amenities but contains a total of four bedrooms, two of which are twin bedrooms located in the basement nanny flat. Other amenities include air conditioning, mini bar, a tea and coffee station, and a digital safe.
The lodge is situated in Grumeti Reserve and forms part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. This area on the western part of the Serengeti National Park, Africa’s number one world heritage site, is known worldwide for its spectacular annual wildebeest migration. Every year millions of wildesbeests and thousands of zebras and Thomsons gazelles flood the grassy plains in search of new pastures. Of course, the predators are not far behind including large populations of lions, leopards, hyenas, and wild dogs. The 350,000 acres of Grumeti Reserve’s is mostly untouched wilderness and hosts a massive wildlife population including twenty-five species of large carnivores, forty species of herbivores, and over 500 species of birds.
