3. Wild and decadent camping
Singita Sabora Tented Camp, Grumeti Reserves, Tanzania
Safari lovers go to Africa to see game, to walk in the wild and to relax while surrounded by nature. But Singita Sabora, a dot of a camp in the 350,000-acre private game reserve in Tanzania, also supplies a dose of the most decadent old-school glamour. During the Great Migration, the wooden decks of the nine tents are surrounded by thousands of animals, bleating and harrumphing making Sabora the perfect spot to soak up the wild.
The lavish tents are lined with Persian silk rugs and feather-stuffed sofa, with sun-bleached animal skulls, glossy tortoise shells and giant seedpods to examine. The vast tented bedrooms are scattered with antique mahogany carvings, silver brushes and mirrors, and are dominated by wooden four-poster beds.
