European sophistication is combined with Eastern African influences throughout the “turn- of-the-century” manor house and private cottages of Singita Sasakwa Lodge. Ranging in number of rooms, each cottage has a private infinity pool overlooking the plains and lounge with a TV to sit back and relax after a long day of activities. The main lodging area has a small library and large swimming pool as well.
Things To Do
Game Drives: Hop on board an open-air Land Rover for and experience Tanzania’s wildlife first hand. Whether you’re and early bird or a night owl, day and night tours are offered every day. As you drive through the plains of the Serengeti, have close encounters with cheetahs, bearded wildebeests, Maasai giraffes, and Colobus monkeys. Guided Safari Walks are also available.
The Grumeti Fund Community Outreach Program: Guest are invited to visit the neighboring villages to experience the success of this community outreach program. The Grumeti Fund Community Outreach Program works with the residents in 21 surrounding villages to help with issues like: education, natural resource management, enterprise development and water management.
Wine: Recognized as one of Africa’s biggest collectors of wine, Singita will arrange a personalized wine tasting guided by an experienced sommelier. Francois Rautenbach leads the curation of the collection while also training young sommeliers who are as enthusiastic about wine as he is
Spa: Treat yourself to Mwarobaini ‘Healer of 40,’ taken from a medical Swahili tree. Another signature spa treatment is Ndzi Lorhe Africa (Dreamed of Africa); the experience begins with a full body exfoliation, followed by a soothing body wrap, and finishing with a unique Uhai balancing massage. Other holistic and healing treatments are available as well.
Other: Stay busy with on-site activities like taking a dip in the swimming pool, getting a bullseye during an archery lesson, or working out at the gym.
Boutiques/Galleries: Pick up one- of-a-kind souvenirs at the curio shop where you will find irreplaceable African treasures. Bring the safari home with printed tapestries, jewelry, and painting all made by local craftsmen.
