Fodor's Expert Review Sabora Plains Tented Camp
Grumeti Game Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania
It's not often that you'll stay in a marquee-shaped tent elegantly furnished with silk curtains, antique furniture, stylish African artifacts, and a/c, but that's what you'll get at this ultraluxurious camp set among green lawns adjacent to the Great Migration route. The game-abundant terrain ranges from open plains and rocky outcrops to riverine forest and woodlands in this 350,000-acre Grumeti concession in Serengeti's western corridor. At night, glowing gas lamps transform the tents raised on polished wooden platforms into a bush fairyland, although the only winged creatures you see will be the night birds and the fluttering moths. For a soothing experience, have a spa treatment on your veranda as you gaze out at the never-ending plains. At night, enjoy the brilliance of the night sky before or after a superlative meal.
- wide, open spaces
- archery, stargazing safaris, mountain biking, tennis court and a mini rangers course for the kids are all available
- This might not be the kind of camp for those looking to step away from technology, as there are air-conditioners in each tent and a television in the main lodge
