Out of Africa

Check out Newsweek's cover story on the best that money can buy! Among the best hotel accomodations they listed, this one seems truely out of this world and worth the price:

Singita Tanzania

"Sabora Tented Camp, Singita Grumeti Reserves, Tanzania. Fans of Sydney Pollack's film "Out of Africa" will love this luxurious air-conditioned tent decorated with Persian rugs, gauze curtains and great-game, safari-style furniture straight out of a Hemingway novel.

Go during the summer months, when the wildebeest migration is in full swing. Meryl Streep and Robert Redford not included (room rate approx $850)."

This resort in right in the Serengeti savannah where antelope and zebra join about 1.5 million wildebeest in one of the largest animal migrations every year, ending a three hundred mile journey in search of life-sustaining grasses and water. What a spectacular view that must be!

I visited Masai Mara in Kenya but unfortunately missed the great migration. Masai Mara and Serengeti share a common border. You can read about my experiences in Kenya here -

Great blog btw. Enjoyed going through your posts.

Cheers, Bharti.
