Situated on the acacia-dotted plains in Tanzania’s western Serengeti, Singita Sabora is primed to showcase one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on the planet. Poised in a key position in the Serengeti's 'western corridor' on the Great Wildebeest Migration route, this tented camp offers front-row seats to one-and-a-half million wildebeest sweeping through the flat savannah on their annual journey in search of nutrient-rich grass.
The 350,000-acre Grumeti Game Reserve is reserved exclusively for Singita’s guests, allowing close-ups of the wildlife amid blue skies and expansive savannahs. While the migration passes through this area between May and early July, the year-round wildlife spotting opportunities in Grumeti are equally rewarding; elephant, cheetah, bat-eared fox and Maasai giraffe that nibble the treetops to name a few of the extraordinary creatures that can be spotted in the vicinity.
Nine canvas tents strategically scatter the short grass with minimum impact on the natural environment, and offer superb views. Each suite is solar powered and fully-equipped, featuring a yoga terrace, freestanding bathtubs and an outdoor deck complete with daybeds. Recently refitted, neutral tones exude a contemporary feel with netted four-poster beds, voluptuous free-standing bathtubs and floor-to-ceiling picture windows that open up to classic Serengeti panoramas.
Communal areas include a main tent that holds two dining spaces serving elevated local fare and an open-plan bar and lounge. A separate swimming pool, gym and spa tent sit at the far end of camp. Interiors continue the understated look with subtle hints of tan leather, canvas and cotton stitching for supreme yet understated comfort, allowing the emphasis to fall on the alluring natural surroundings. Wicker baskets full of gourmet treats are a thoughtful touch, nodding to Singita’s signature service, and there are plenty of spots from which to watch the wildlife roam through camp on the way to the two nearby watering holes.
