Grumeti Reserves is located adjacent to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, bordering the national park, and encompasses 340 000 acres of unrivalled wilderness. The area forms part of the famous migratory route, which is travelled by hundreds of thousands of animals every year. Singita Sasakwa Lodge is one of three Singita lodges in this enormous private concession, which means that you’ll have this wild stretch of Africa all to yourself. Sasakwa Lodge is built in the style of an Edwardian manor house. Stone walls, deep verandas, high ceilings, stately furniture, silverware and ornamental pieces complete the picture. Each cottage has a private infinity-edge pool overlooking ‘where the land stretches to forever’. The bedrooms with inviting four-posters are beautifully appointed, displaying typical African influences with touches of wood, leather and grass, alongside crisp linens, imported chandeliers and hand-crafted furniture. Game drives and walks can be enjoyed accompanied by professional guides – the most experienced in East Africa, whilst other activities include archery, lawn croquet, mountain biking, equestrian pursuits, and hot air ballooning (at an additional cost). The Equestrian Centre, situated adjacent to Sasakwa Lodge, is home to sixteen horses and includes a lunging arena, fenced paddock, and a walled 2.7 kilometre riding track, which can also be used for walking and jogging. More experienced riders can enjoy out-rides onto the Serengeti plains. Tack is English style, and guests have the choice of either English or Western saddles. Grumeti Reserves is a family friendly reserve, and children over the age of twelve are welcome at Sasakwa.
