Singita Sasakwa Lodge - Serengeti Grumeti Private Reserve
Our budget itineraries can start as low as $300 per person per night – but this is the bottom of the range for mass-market tourist. The ultra, luxury properties cost between $400- $1,300 per person per night during peak season, with the most exclusive properties reaching $2,500 per night. For the best experience, we do not advocate going below $500 per person per night for a luxury Tanzania safari.

In our opinion, the Grumeti Reserve is the cream of the crop – one of the most unbelievable places in all of Africa, with Faru Faru Lodge being a favorite contemporary camp. If you’re not focused on the Great Migration, then we recommend visiting the northern Serengeti in the off-season (January to mid-March, June and November to mid-December). The scenery is simply spectacular and since most wildlife doesn’t migrate like the wildebeest, you’ll get lots of solo time with all the resident big cats and antelope herds. A few of our favorite camps include Lamai Serengeti, Singita Mara River and Lemala Kuria Hills.
We also love enjoying the slower safari pace at Chem Chem Lodge, secretly tucked between Tarangire and Lake Manyara. For something a bit more remote and off the beaten path, we love both Ruaha in the south (including Ikuka Safari Camp and Kigelia Ruaha), as well as Mahale Mountains in the west for some of the best chimp trekking in Africa. And for some beach time away from the crowds, The Manta Resort on Pemba Island is not to be missed for your dose of barefoot beach luxury.
