Sin­gita Sasakwa Lodge

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

Of­ten placed in the top five ho­tels in the world, Sin­gita Sasakwa Lodge takes the Out of Africa travel ex­pe­ri­ence out of this world. The main lodge is rem­i­nis­cent of an Ed­war­dian manor— un­sur­pris­ingly, as it was built by Bri­tish colo­nials in the 1920s. The up­per-crust style is still on full dis­play, with chan­de­liers and French-pol­ished fur­ni­ture in the din­ing and liv­ing rooms. The nine cot­tages have four-poster beds, free-stand­ing baths and lav­ish ve­ran­dahs, where we lounge, gin and ton­ics in hand, gaz­ing out over the end­less sa­van­nah and pass­ing an­i­mals. Sin­gita owns the 140,000-hectare block on which the lodge is set, so you won’t have to con­tend with any other jeeps muscling in and ru­in­ing your game spot­ting. It’s also on the path of the Great Mi­gra­tion, and the priv­i­lege that comes from view­ing this un­be­liev­able nat­u­ral phe­nom­e­non in pri­vate is al­most as won­der­ful as the camp it­self. sin­
