The extensively redesigned Singita Sabora Tented Camp has reopened this month, ushering in a new era of luxury safari under canvas in Tanzania.
Travellers are yearning for wide-open spaces, intuitive service and more time to relax. This modern interpretation of luxury tented safaris presents the perfect opportunity to return to Africa to rest, reset and be restored.
Singita Sabora Tented Camp retains the quintessential elements of a romantic safari under canvas. Its nine tented suites, set close to the ground, have subtle décor and design elements that reflect Africa’s creative energy and contemporary cultural identity. Guests will love the hand-stitched leather finishes, durable canvas and campaign furniture which echoes the spirit of classic East African adventures.

Singita’s design partners, Cécile & Boyd and GAPP Architects, used the surrounding grasslands as inspiration for the camp’s sophisticated aesthetics. The tents feature muted taupe, tan and beige. The furnishings are beautifully embellished with touches of brown leather, thick beige stitching, mesh and weave.
Deeply restorative comforts have been added to the camp. Guests can relax on individual private meditation decks. Singita Sabora’s secluded outdoor salas have shaded daybeds where guests can spend long afternoons reading, idly watch game pass by and immersing themselves in the breath-taking views of the Serengeti. With nothing separating them from rolling grasslands, every sight, sound and smell is amplified.
Here, set against the backdrop of the sweeping savannahs, teeming herds of wildlife and powder-blue skies, a sense of spaciousness and peace abounds.
Sabora’s nourishing farm-to-table food celebrates seasonal freshness and regional flavours. A unique ‘Guest Deli’ in the main lodge area features wicker baskets and fridges filled with gourmet delights. Guests can pick and choose treats to enjoy in the privacy of their suites or picnic spots around the camp.
With private in-room fitness areas, soothing treatments, up-close encounters with wildlife and more, a variety of opportunities for wellness are woven into the guest experience. A stay at Sabora nurtures and nourishes, continuously tapping into the profoundly healing potential of nature.
Inherently African, earthy and evolved, Singita Sabora is an authentic and transformative retreat. In the gentle flow of this landscape and healing experience carrying you from one moment to the next, you feel grounded at last, and can finally reaffirm your sense of place in the world.
