Tripadvisor comments Singita Sasakwa Lodge
This lodge was phenomenal in every respect. So perfect, that I now know which lodge I want to stick to when booking future trips to Africa. The photos don't do it justice. It's perfectly organized, with attention to the tiniest detail. This doesn't happen by accident. It only happens by a commitment to excellence. Clean cottages (think 2 bedroom home), welcoming staff, delicious and clean food! Wonderful guides, wonderful spa services....just everything is perfect here.

We had a second trip to Sasakwa (and Sabora) in September. ... It is such a beautiful oasis in the African bush. I had forgotten just how serene and luxurious it is, After a month on safari it was a relaxing way to end our holiday. The food was amazing, the staff care just immaculate. I had a bit of a dizzy spell and had the expert ministrations of Francis the paramedic - felt in very safe hands. We still had amazing animal interactions with our wonderful guide Jeremiah. A leopard kill and my favourite Cheetahs and so many elephants at the dam. What a wonderful place Grumeti is and the work being done to preserve the African animals is so worthy of support.
