Fodor's Expert Review Sasakwa Lodge

Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania

This is one of four camps (plus a private villa) in the Grumeti Reserve, a 350,000-acre concession in Serengeti's Western Corridor. If you're at all familiar with the Singita name, you'll know it is associated with some of the most luxurious and elegant lodges in the Sabi Sands Private Reserve in South Africa. This superlative lodge, built in the style of a 1920s East African ranch house, adds more luster to the Singita name. You'll stay in one of the honey-color stone cottages, each elegantly furnished with hand-carved furniture, cream and white throws, cushions, and lamps, and copies of antique animal prints lining the high walls. Need some downtime? Sit out on your patio or lawn and watch for game, luxuriate in your own heated pool, or laze in your lounge and listen to the state-of-the-art sound system. There are game drives here—the game is as good as it gets—but there is also horseback riding and mountain biking, all with an armed guard in attendance. Enjoy a massage before a fine dinner served with crystal and silver.
