Tel: 255 27 250 8976's insider take:

Sabora Camp's nine spacious tents—outfitted with Persian rugs, antique vanities, and brass lanterns that throw soft light on crystal barware—offer guests pure colonial-style luxury. Because the camp is located on the open plains of the Singita Grumeti Reserve, staying here makes you feel like you're at the center of the action: Open your tent flaps at sunrise and you can watch wildebeests greeting the day from your canopied bed (who needs TV?). The large tents that make up the common area include a library and sitting room decorated with campaign-style furniture and antiques from an English lord's East African travels. The dining tent serves European-inspired cuisine, prepared with local, organic ingredients, by candlelight—a hearty reward after game drives and tennis matches on a termite-mound-clay court. If you're looking to split the difference between the white-glove treatment at sister lodge Sasakwa and the barefoot luxury of Faru Faru, Sabora's storybook Out of Africa ambience will be a good fit.—Collen Clark
