Singita Sabora Tented Camp

Singita Sabora Tented Camp is a gorgeous, highly exclusive 1920s style safari camp located in the private Grumeti Reserves, in the northwestern Serengeti.

Singita Sabora Tented Camp is located in the southern Grumeti Reserve, in the north-western Serengeti National Park. The Grumeti region (technically, the Grumeti Reserves – Grumeti is comprised of a northern and southern sector) is a highly exclusive private reserve managed by Singita Safaris, and home to four luxury lodges, of which Sabora is one. The Singita properties are among the most exclusive lodges in the Serengeti, and also among the most expensive.

Of Singita’s Serengeti camps, Sabora is the most traditional in outlook and ambience. Unlike the very contemporary feel of sister camps Sasakwa and Faru Faru, Sabora has been furnished in an exaggerated colonial style, its décor intended to evoke a Georgian-era safari camp. Guests stay in classic 1920s-style safari tents, beautifully appointed with campaign furniture and other furnishings redolent of the era. They are a sharp contrast to the very plush and modern suites offered at neighbouring Faru Faru Lodge, which boasts such hi-tech novelties as remote controllable window panes!

This isn’t to say that Sabora is a simple bush camp. Like all Singita camps, it’s extravagantly furnished and serviced to an impeccable standard. The camp designers have done a good job of capturing the aesthetics of a classic safari camp without sacrificing too many modern comforts. Sabora’s tents feature air-con, Wi-Fi and lavish en-suite bathrooms. Sabora also offers more than a few facilities that you might not associate with a colonial-era safari camp, including spa, swimming pool and, at sister lodge Sasakwa, a small tennis court.

Activities at Sabora are varied. As the camp is located in a private reserve, outside of the Serengeti park boundaries, National Park guidelines do not apply. This opens up the possibility of walking and riding safaris as well as day and night game drives. The game-viewing is spectacular in this region of the Serengeti, particularly during the wildebeest and zebra migration, which can usually be seen here between July and September. Even outside of the migration months, however, Sabora offers a chance to explore a remote region of the Serengeti far from the crowds.

Singita Sabora Tented Camp is open throughout the year.


Decorated in grand 1920s-style, with original antiques and opulent rugs, Sabora's six classic safari tents are wonderfully romantic. The tented rooms are furnished with four poster beds, intricately carved bedroom furniture (including old-fashioned collapsible wooden toilets) and plush velvet curtains. Each tent is air-conditioned and features a bedroom and reading area, bathroom (with bath, outdoor shower and dressing area), raised viewing deck complete with spotting scope, overhead fan, hair dryer, direct dial telephone, electronic safe, Wi-Fi, and a library lounge tent with a personal bar.


Meals are served, variously, in the stylish dining tent complete with chandeliers, outside on the main deck, or even on the plains in front of the camp. You are given a selection of 3-course dinner menus to choose from, accompanied by a good selection of wines and spirits.
