With just nine tents that reflect a time when Ernest Hemingway might have wandered through these beautiful lands, Sabora is a rather romantic place to explore the Grumeti Reserve from with some staggeringly good service to compliment the game.
A real explorer’s camp, you have access to huge numbers of birds, healthy packs of lions and, for a few months a year, the famous wildebeest and zebra migration. It isn’t uncommon for the wildlife to stroll casually through the camp and bring you some extra special close encounters that you will remember for life.
Canvas tents hark back to the early 20th century, with antique campaign furniture, warm rugs, brass lamps and fabulous four-poster beds making you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Of course there are a few subtle modern comforts, including air conditioning, en suite bathroom and outdoor shower.
The colonial theme continues into the dining tent with its large communal table and silver tableware. You can also dine out under the stars, a lovely way to spend your evening.
As well as the incredible safari for which the Grumeti is renowned for, you can explore on guided walks and bird watching trips, visit the local community and anti poaching unit, play tennis, cool off in the pool, enjoy wine tasting (Singita is recognised as one of Africa’s most influential collectors of wine) or simply relax on the plains where day beds are scattered to provide spots for afternoon naps and incredible game-viewing.
