Singita Sasakwa Lodge, Singita Grumeti, Tanzania

While the Edwardian-style safari lodge’s antique English furnishings and zebra-hide rugs are striking, it’s the view at the end of its lobby that makes you feel like the Lion King. French doors open to a manicured lawn that then links, almost like an infinity pool, to the golden Serengeti beyond. Even safari experts are impressed: “The entryway to this property is one of the most memorable welcomes of any lodge in East Africa,” says Dennis Pinto, managing director of luxury tour operator Micato Safaris. “The combination of colonial opulence paired with the views towards Tanzania’s untamed plains is truly exceptional.” singita.com/sasakwa-lodge
