Grumeti Reserves, Sasakwa Lodge

    Because it is within a 400,000-plus-acre private concession—one that is open only to guests of the three camps—Sasakwa can offer safaris that are not permitted on public land. Options include excursions on horseback and mountain bike, which, even outside of the migration months, provide up-close views of the Serengeti’s wildlife. Accommodations Each of the seven one- to four-bedroom cottages offers a lounge with a fireplace and a veranda with an infinity plunge pool and a Swarovski spyglass. Recreation Safaris by Land Rover, horseback, mountain bike, or foot. Dining International cuisine served in the Dining room, on the front lawn, in the garden room or library, on the veranda of your cottage, at the tennis pavilion, or at the equestrian center. Worthy Diversion At some point between June and August of each year, more than 2 million wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and other herbivores flood the plains of the Serengeti. Rates $1,500 per person, per night.
