Singita Sabora Tented Camp: A Balm for the Soul

The canvas walls, earthy colour palette and subtle, layered design details of the new Singita Sabora Tented Camp are far from predictable. Embracing the challenges of a transformative year, this innovative property epitomises the future of classic adventures under canvas, offering guests a restorative sanctuary that harnesses the healing power of nature.

Throughout, the camp provides unfiltered time and space in which to rest and recharge. Having redefined every detail of the guest experience, this modern take reflects months of thoughtful deliberation and careful planning in order to offer guests a safari retreat unlike any other – a safe haven in which to re-engage the senses and find moments of meaning and mindfulness.

Every touchpoint embodies these values – from the uncluttered beauty of the interior spaces and the purposeful placement of each tent to capture the best views, to the inclusion of secluded salas in which to unwind; it is a meticulously-crafted environment that encourages stillness and serenity.

The setting of Singita Sabora Tented Camp, resting lightly in 350,000 acres of private wilderness, is unrivalled. The Singita Grumeti reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife which tread the sweeping plains year-round. Set along the route of the Great Wildebeest Migration – a natural phenomenon in every sense of the word – and protected through our 100-year commitment to preserve large areas of African wilderness for future generations, it is an ideal location in which to witness the wonders of this captivating continent.

The team at GAPP Architects placed the tents closer to the ground with sections of full-length glazing, enhancing the sense of continuous connection with the surrounding grasslands, while their construction and the use of solar power allows for minimal environmental impact.

The reimagined interiors by longtime collaborators, Cécile & Boyd, express the sense of adventure inherent in the classic tented safari experience but interpreted through a modern perspective that is more aligned with how travellers have evolved, especially over the past year. Simplicity, sustainability and comfort remain the golden thread of the design, amplified by countless well-considered touches that allow guests to seamlessly experience the vast and untouched wilderness that surrounds them. Offering a sense of peaceful sanctuary, these sophisticated, contemporary spaces are the lens through which guests can find the kind of meaningful refuge they crave.

Destined to lead the way for modern tented safaris that allow you to reconnect with yourself within nature, Singita Sabora Tented Camp awaits those looking for extraordinary experiences that restore, revive and awaken the senses.
