Dar es Salaam. Singita Grumeti Tanzania has once again affirmed its status as one of Africa's leading safari resorts, after scooping the top spot in Travel and Leisure publication, on the "Best Safari Lodges in Africa". The announcement was made last week in New York.
The award, is the result of votes from readers and Singita Grumeti visitors who voted for it due to its majestic location adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
Every year, Travel and Leisure asks readers to vote based on their travel experiences around the world.
Readers rated properties on their rooms, facilities, food, service and overall experience from the time of booking through to departure from the property. Guests also value Singita’s environmentally conscious hospitality and sustainable conservation which plays a big part in preserving Tanzania’s heritage for future generations.
The award winning staff at Singita Grumeti consistently deliver personalised service that leaves one in utmost awe. "Nowhere delivers the safari experience quite like Singita Grumeti" quotes a reader's comments.
Singita Grumeti was voted no.1 in the Private Lodges and Camps category.
Commenting on the award, Singita COO Mark Witney, said:
"The Travel and Leisure Awards are particularly prestigious in the world of travel because they are the result of a readers’ poll. Readers of the magazine are asked to rate hotels and lodges they may recently have stayed at and so the outcome does not reflect the personal preferences of a travel writer but the real experiences of guests. Tanzania too should be proud of how this positions tourism in the country" Mr Witney added.
The award is particularly good news for Tanzania as this is the kind of standard that will benefit tourism in the country.
Singita Grumeti has been the recipient of several awards in the past:
· No.1 in the world in the 2015 Conde Nast Traveller USA Readers' Choice Awards
· Best Hotel in the World for Service in 2015 by Conde Nast Traveller UK
· World's Best Hotel overall in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2011 & 2012 lists of top 100 Hotels.
