If it’s solitude you seek, then Singita Grumeti Reserves is the place to be. Singita Sasakwa Lodge is one of three Singita lodges in this 340 000 acre private concession, which means that guests have this wild stretch of Africa all to themselves.

Singita Grumeti Reserves forms part of the world-famous migratory route. The Great Migration traditionally moves through Grumeti Reserves between June and August. However, there is an abundance of wildlife year-round. The Serengeti, which is Africa’s No. 1 World Heritage Site, is also home to 25 species of large carnivores, 40 herbivore species and over 600 types of bird – including five endemic species, with an impressively large number of raptors that form the highest concentration on the continent. This is also where you’ll find a wide range of primates, such as the rare Patas and Colobus monkeys and prolific plant life and species.
