Following are reviews on some of the finest establishments in the Serengeti area
Sasakwa Hill Lodge – Grumeti Reserves – An extraordinary luxury safari lodge built and furnished in true colonial fashion, Sasakwa Hill Lodge is the perfect getaway for a safari tour or family safari as the establishment accommodates children.

Experienced riders can take rides into the Serengeti. Other activities include game drives, walking safaris, tennis, biking and activities for children.
Sayari Camp – Tanzania – For an “at home”, luxury experience in the heart of the Serengeti, Sayari Camp provides eight large and luxurious visitor tents tucked away in the African wilds. Each room contains traditional African furniture, a king-size bed, bathroom and private veranda from which you can observe the beauty of Serengeti.
You can recline in the inviting lounge area for a drink, eat European and African culinary delights in the camp dining area, cool off in the on-site pool, and enjoy sitting around an evening campfire listening to the sounds of Africa in the distance. While enjoying a Sayari Camp experience, guests are catered to by an attentive camp crew to ensure all feel comfortable and relaxed in their remote wilderness setting.
From your Sayari Camp, strike out on adventurous walking safaris and game drives.
Kilindi Lodge – Zanzibar, Tanzania – Located in a unique, picturesque area of Northern Zanzibar, Kilindi Lodge is considered to be the most unique and exclusive accommodations on the island. Pavilions dot the 500 meter expanse of some of the best white sand beach area in Zanzibar. The private plot of 52 acres of land on which the Lodge sits ensures you enjoy complete privacy and an unspoiled Zanzibar vacation.
Kilindi Lodge itself looks out over the glistening ocean where Dhows can be seen navigating their way along the coast. The fifteen luxurious pavilions are surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, each containing two rain-water pools refreshed by cascading waterfalls and domed areas to enjoy peace and quiet or a private party.
Activities include fishing, boating, snorkeling, Dhow safaris, walking safaris and a luxury spa.
Klein’s Camp – Tanzania – Located in the Western Corridor, Klein’s Camp has been named the Best Tented Camp in Tanzania by Travel News as well as earning the title of National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s Top 50 Ecolodges.
Ten traditional safari-style cottages are built of round stones with thatched roofs, have polished wooden floors and relaxing, classic interiors which take your imagination back to the adventurous days of old safaris into the rugged African wilds.
The camp looks out over the rolling plains of the Great Serengeti where you can watch elephants and other exotic wildlife pass by from your private terrace. You will also enjoy relaxing at the camp’s tastefully decorated bar and living area, around the pristine swimming pool and at an expansive leisure deck.
Dine and drink at the restaurant and lounge which offer incredible views over a valley and surrounding rolling hills. Head to the African plains for a game drive or walking safari where you can watch the migration and wandering of some Africa’s most sought-after creatures.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge – Tanzania – Nestled beautifully on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is considered to be one of the most archeologically stunning luxury safari lodges in Africa. It consists of three small villages divided into the North Camp, South Camp and, the more elegant, Tree Camp. Each cottage magically combine luxurious style with traditional setting that make you feel as if you’ve found a piece of heaven on earth.
Enjoying the creature comforts of your voluptuous cottage furnishings, you can recline in the central living area and chat with other guests, or view the majestic beauty of the crater from an observation deck. When it’s time to retire, Maasai warriors escort you to your domain where a butler is waiting to tend to your every need.
Get up close and personal with the beasts of Africa as you venture out on game drives. When you return from your grand adventure, enjoy some personal attention in the lodge’s invigorating luxury spa.
