Overview

Singita Sasakwa Lodge is a deluxe property in a stunning hilltop location overlooking the vast, rolling plains of the Serengeti National Park, Northern Tanzania. Situated within the 350,000 acre privately owned Singita Grumeti Reserve, there’s a dense concentration of wildlife to see including vast herds of wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, cheetah and the famed ‘Big 5’.

From its elevated setting on Sasakwa Hill, the main house blends opulence and comfort in a traditional colonial style, with its spacious veranda boasting unrivalled views of the Serengeti plains below. Extensive communal areas include a large swimming pool, luxury spa, gym with superb views and tennis courts. There’s also a gift shop, library and television room, billiard room, lounge and bar. The cuisine at Sasakwa Lodge is excellent and fine wines are served from the property’s award-winning cellars (private tastings can be arranged).

Activities include daily game drives, guided safari walks, and the private nature of the reserve means that night drives are also possible. Note that the lodge operates communal rather than private safari activities, with guests sharing vehicles. However, private vehicles can be arranged, albeit at additional cost. Sasakwa’s equestrian centre offers horseback safari for experienced riders; archery and badminton are also available and cultural visits to local communities are encouraged.

The accommodation comprises nine private, luxuriously appointed cottages with one, two or three bedrooms, and one four bedroom villa. Every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with separate bath and shower. All cottages have their own veranda, private infinity pool and lounge area. Facilities are comprehensive and include air conditioning, fans, direct dial telephone, safe and CD player.

Children of all ages are welcome, with a children’s playroom and babysitting service available. For safety reasons, participation of children below 15 years of age in game activities is at the discretion of the guide. There is plenty to keep younger family members busy on site, including swimming, archery, tennis, baking with chefs, guided walks around camp, face painting, and arts and crafts. The Mini Rangers Course teaches children more about their surroundings, introducing them to butterfly identification, animal tracking, flower pressing, astronomy and bush survival techniques.

Singita Sasakwa Lodge’s spectacular setting, excellent facilities and premium service are reflected in its high end prices. However, for those looking for a sophisticated safari experience with luxury and comfort a priority, a stay at Singita Sasakwa Lodge is hard to surpass.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
