Lording it over the Singita Grumeti Reserve's 340,000 acres from a stately cliff-top perch, Sasakwa is the Buckingham Palace of safari lodges. Mahogany four-poster beds, imported chandeliers, antique writing desks, and claw-foot tubs decorate the guest quarters. There are nine one- to three-bedroom cottages, plus a family-friendly four-bedroom with what the lodge proposes as a two-bedroom "nanny flat" on the basement level (Sasakwa is one of the few properties that allow children under 12). There's more opulence in the Edwardian-style manor house, which includes the main dining room, serving rich dishes such as osso buco; a garden room filled with local flora; and a lounge stocked with wildlife books. Morning and afternoon game drives (in open Land Rovers or on horseback, the lodge being home to one of Africa's largest equestrian centers) are, of course, the main event. And there's no shortage of other pursuits, including archery, mountain biking, tennis, and spa treatments. But make some time, too, for observing elephants and zebras from your private infinity pool. While the white-glove service and opulent decor can be a bit full-on, you'll feel protected and safe in your large cottage, making it the perfect first stop for finding your safari legs. If you're splitting your time between the three lodges of the Singita Grumeti Reserve (the other two are Faru Faru and Sabora Tented Camp), the staff will build your transfer into the day's game drive.—Collen Clark
