The sweeping plains of Tanzania’s Serengeti are perhaps some of Africa’s most iconic and evocative safari landscapes, conjuring up images of classic East African safaris and the Great Migration – the most extraordinary wildlife spectacle on Earth. Located in these rolling grasslands is Singita Sabora Tented Camp, which has captivated guests for more than a decade with its inimitable setting at eye-level with grazing herds of wildlife. Reopening this year, following an extensive redesign, the new Singita Sabora is set to embody the essence of simplicity – a restorative sanctuary under canvas where connecting with nature comes naturally.
MODERN INTERPRETATION OF CLASSIC SAFARIS
With a classically modern take on African safari experiences that are both transitional and timeless – and embracing its incomparable location – the camp will offer the ideal environment for travelers yearning for privacy and calm. Each tented suite rests lightly and close to the ground and is designed to have a minimal environmental impact. Here, guests have the freedom to enjoy unfiltered time and space, while being transformed by this vast untouched wilderness.
Subtle but deliberate architectural details and décor elements welcome the breathtaking surroundings inside, offering seamless combinations of indoor and outdoor experiences. Singita’s signature levels of comfort are the cornerstones of the experience, guiding guests towards profound connections with nature.
The rediscovered Sabora will reflect an earthy color palette representing the natural tones of the African bush and touches of leather, canvas and cotton stitching – coupled with mesh and weave finishes throughout – provides sophisticated comfort, showcasing the continent’s contemporary cultural identity.
Sabora’s nine breathtaking tented suites will celebrate the romance of spending enchanted nights under canvas – with the sounds of the bush closer than ever before. The new camp has been skillfully reorganized to capture the best views over the plains, as well as two nearby waterholes, where game regularly gather to drink. Each self-contained suite includes extensive private living areas in which to rest, relax and immerse yourself in wellness activities like outdoor yoga, meditation, and guided rituals and treatments to soothe body and soul. The spacious design features a beautifully curated pantry for in-room dining, as well as a meditation deck, private fitness area and secluded outdoor sala with shaded daybeds from which to marvel at passing wildlife.
In the main lodge area, the addition of a unique ‘Guest Deli’, offering wicker baskets and fridges filled with gourmet bites, will allow guests to pick and choose treats to enjoy in their suites – or any private picnic spot they choose. There’s also a separate pool area, two intimate dining spaces and an open-plan bar and lounge, all featuring Sabora’s understated new look, emphasizing tailored luxury.
Destined to lead the way for modern tented experiences 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. Set in 350,000 acres of protected wilderness, its reopening in 2020 will provide travelers with the wide-open expanse of the western Serengeti, experienced through Singita’s unique perspective – and the start of something new, more considered and more meaningful than the life we’ve led before.
