August 2020 – Set in a 350,000-acre concession in the Serengeti in northern Tanzania, Singita Sabora Tented Camp has captivated guests for more than a decade with its inimitable location. Reopening at the end of September 2020, the lodge’s extensive redesign is a modern interpretation of luxury tented safaris, while retaining the quintessential elements of a romantic experience under canvas. The new forward-thinking camp features sophisticated details such as hand-stitched leather finishes, as well as durable canvas and campaign furniture, and it echoes the unmistakable spirit of classic East African adventures combined with intuitive simplicity.

With added comforts such as private meditation decks and secluded outdoor salas with shaded daybeds, the new camp is now set even closer to the ground. Guests can spend languid afternoons reading on their decks, idly watch game passing by, and immerse themselves in Sabora’s unrivalled setting. With not much separating them from the bush, every sight, sound and smell is amplified, maximising the thrill of this tented experience.

Singita’s design partners, Cécile & Boyd and GAPP Architects, collaborated for the creation of the new architecture and décor of the lodge, which echoes the earthy colour palette of the bush. Featuring muted taupe, tan and beige, the elegant aesthetic also includes touches of brown leather and thick beige stitching. Mesh, canvas and weave finishes throughout provide a rich combination of textures and layers of sophisticated comfort.

The exquisite craftsmanship of the custom-designed tents is extended to every chosen piece, while the placement of the camp has been subtly reorganised to make the most of its sweeping surrounds, and each tented suite enjoys breathtaking views of one of the two nearby waterholes.

“A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF CLASSIC EAST AFRICAN SAFARIS”

The nine self-contained suites feature a seamless combination of in- and outdoor living spaces, which include private areas in which to rest, relax and immerse oneself in wellness activities like outdoor yoga and soothing guided rituals and treatments. The tents also offer private fitness areas and lifestyle units such as a beautifully curated pantry and dining area.

The tents rest lightly above the ground, with minimal impact on the landscape and with the use of sustainable materials, natural light, cross ventilation, energy-efficient lighting and solar power, the off-the-grid design wholly embraces the One Planet Living sustainability framework adopted by Singita. Sabora’s location at eye level with grazing herds of wildlife rewrites the script on sustainable experiences in the wilderness.

Celebrating the romance of a tented camp and the opportunity for a restorative retreat, Sabora’s thoughtfully tailored luxury is set to reframe the future of luxury safaris on the continent.

Set in the western corridor of the Serengeti, Singita Grumeti gives guests exclusive access to the Serengeti Mara ecosystem – the renowned migratory route of the Great Migration. It’s protected by the dedicated conservation team at the Grumeti Fund, Singita’s conservation partner in the region, who spearheads projects like the Anti-Poaching Canine Unit, black rhino relocations and the Serengeti Girls Run for the empowerment of girls in rural communities. This partnership applies the best of tourism and conservation to create programmes that benefit the local communities, wildlife and the natural landscape.

In addition to a classic Serengeti safari, Singita Sabora Tented Camp’s proximity to Singita Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda enables guests to experience a circuit with easy direct flights from Singita Grumeti to Kigali – combining the best of Tanzania’s wildlife and wilderness with transformative encounters with Rwanda’s endangered mountain gorillas.

Singita Sabora Tented Camp is set to reopen at the end of September 2020. Rates start from $1,650 per person per night in off-peak season to $2,400 per person per night in peak season.
