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!
