Singita Sasakwa Lodge, Tanzania

The stone walls, lawns, verandas, stately period furniture and atmosphere of an Edwardian manor house – set in 350,000 acres of African wilderness.

With its high ceilings, four poster beds, period décor, ornaments and old fashioned silverware you will be reminded of Edwardian stately homes – or at least the colonial equivalent. But step onto your private veranda and soak up the immenseness of the rolling plains stretching to the horizon beneath a gigantic sky, and you’ll be in no doubt you’re in Africa.

Tanzania to be precise, staying at the heart of a vast private estate where the entertainment isn’t cricket on the local village green – it’s going on game drives and safaris to encounter the local wildlife. Or taking a hot air balloon ride across the Serengeti. Or riding a horse to track bigger game than foxes!

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
