Fodor's Expert Review Sasakwa Lodge

Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania

Located in the Grumeti Reserve, a 350,000-acre concession in Serengeti's western corridor, this superlative lodge is built in the style of a glamorous 1920s East African farm ranch. Guests stay in one of the honey-color stone suites, each elegantly furnished with hand-carved furniture and copies of antique animal prints lining the high walls. Private patios with soft, wicker lounge chairs and heated pools offer up perfect views for game spotting. There are game drives here—the game is as good as it gets as it is on the migration route—but there is also horseback riding, visits to anti-poaching stations, and fine china dining at its best.


  • Wonderful views of the Serengeti plains
  • Your every need will be taken care of
  • Being on a private reserve there are fewer crowds


  • The lodge is quite formal, but many may think that is a pro
  • Luxury and privacy comes with a hefty price tag
  • Equestrian center isn't always open
