Dreaming of a holiday or planning ahead? Several countries have lifted travel restrictions for residents from the UAE. Here’s a guide to the latest hotel re-openings so you can finally take that trip you deserve

Singita Sabora Tented Camp, Tanzania

This next-generation tented safari experience, set in a 350,000-acre concession in the Serengeti, has undergone a makeover to now offer a modern interpretation of the tented safari experience. Tones of the bush are complemented by interpretations of furniture, which evoke the spirit of East African adventures. Throughout the nine tented suites, guests can expect a lush blend of textures seen in mesh, canvas and weave finishes, and layers of comfort that offer a contemporary, relaxed home with the desert as a backdrop.

The camp has been reorganized with each suite offering breathtaking views of one of the two nearby waterholes, so you remain at eye level with wildlife. Being closer to the ground means every sight, sound and smell of the bush is amplified, while bespoke glass panelling welcomes the Serengeti plains inside.

Added comforts include private meditation decks and secluded outdoor salas with shaded daybeds. The main lodge area offers a unique “Guest Deli” with wicker baskets and fridges filled with gourmet bites, so you can select treats to enjoy back at your suite. In addition to this, a separate pool area, two dining spaces and an open-plan bar and lounge makes Singita Sabora the ideal retreat.

Details: From AED6,000 per person per night, on a full board basis. Visit singita.com for more information.
