Safari is an authoritative travel, tourism and hospitality portal for Tanzania and East Africa
The Singita Sasakwa property, operating within the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania has been named the ‘World’s Leading Safari Lodge,’ for the year 2022.
Singita Sasakwa Lodge, which wins the global accolade for the fourth time now, is positioned on the Sasakwa Hill overlooking the vast endless plains of Serengeti National Park.
While it is regarded as a lodge, Singita Sasakwa actually looks like a private high-end homely property which imitates the style of a stately Edwardian manor house and feels like one.
Tanzania has apparently produced two global winners in international travel industry awards.
