The appeal of Singita Sabora Tented Camp lies in the juxtaposition between an untamed landscape and a luxury that appears misplaced within this remote part of the world. The contrast between the wild terrain and lavish interiors allows guests to feel simultaneously spoilt and adventurous - a winning combination for anyone with a bold spirit. Themed in 1920s style with antique leather trunks, Persian rugs and two old Chevrolets parked in front of the camp, there's little doubt that Hemingway would have been at home here. Accommodation consists of nine en-suites tents raised slightly off the ground on a wooden deck, each with bragging rights to a verandah looking over the open territory.
Two large tents function as the main lounge and dining area with an additional outside lounge positioned on the deck between them. True to the theme set in the tents, these areas are furnished with wooden campaign furniture, Persian rugs and pieces of African art. Despite this opulence, the tents respect the environment by blending into the incredible surroundings, establishing harmony between lodge and reserve. Special mention must be given to Sabora Tented Camp's unique tennis court which is characterised by the absence of fences, gin and tonics and the zebras that are known to interupt games by taking a midday break on the tram lines.
Sabora Tented Camp is located in the enormous privately-owned Singita Grumeti Reserves. This means you are guaranteed a private and exclusive game viewing experience, far removed from the throngs of tourists in most other parts of the Serengeti. The Great Migration passes through the Grumeti River so this is your chance to witness thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross crocodile-infested rivers.
