Singita Faru Faru is situated within the magnificent Singita Grumeti Reserve, in Northern Tanzania. The reserves cover 350 000 acres of pristine wilderness, which is adjoined to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. As there is no fencing, the wildlife migrates freely between the national park and the reserve.
The Grumeti concession, which is managed by Singita, was created to preserve the Serengeti Mara ecosystem and protect the path of the annual wildebeest migration.
Perched low on the Grumeti River, overlooking a natural waterhole, Singita Faru Faru Lodge offers a spectacular vantage point for guests to witness an abundance of wildlife and the world's largest annual animal migration. About two million wildebeest, zebra

"This is a modern rustic, elegant venue one could find in a luxury hotel in northern California; but add a water hole and here comes the buffalo, chimps, hyenas, gazelles and instantly one is in Singita's Faru Faru. Located in the southern area of Grumeti's Game Reserve, it's pure luxury. The wall to wall portrait-sized retracting window frames the view. The amenities include bath oil, bath salt and bubbles for the indoor tub. There is an outdoor shower overlooking water hole where only the wildlife has view. The mini bar is well stocked with wines and spirits; and cookies and chocolates; even Pringles potato chips. The service is attentive and friendly (it's like knowing the staff as old friends); and the food well presented and delicious. The portions are generous. "There is a peacefulness in the Serengeti", I said to a staffer (who's mom in Masai and father from northern Tanzania). He replied, "There is a peacefulness because there is balance." Yes, nothing is wasted. The hunters hunt; scavengers take over; and the dung beetles use and eat the dung. There are no fences surrounding Grumeti Reserve so game come and go as they please. There is an abundance of wildlife here because there is food and safety. Now, when can I come and go as I please? This is truly a luxurious place that I would visit again and again."

"James was our incredible ranger, highly recommended. We went in December 2012 and saw both cheetahs and lions with their cubs. Big heards with thousands of wildebeest and buffalo. The service at the hotel is flawless, great and lots of food. Yes, it's expensive, but its worth every penny."

"Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the incredible beauty, service, and friendliness of this lodge and the wonderful people on the staff! The lodge is open air to the magnificent Serengeti reserve yet there is not one speck of dust to be seen in the lodge or the rooms. Within one day the staff knew our names, our food preferences, our wine preferences and our adventure plan. The lodge suites were more like casitas with spacious living areas and expansive porches complete with outside sleeping beds and beautiful netting that allowed star viewing in a protected elevated shelter. The secluded stone outdoor shower was my favorite. Not usually a morning person, I could not resist waking at dawn to shower while watching the sunrise and marveling at the chorus of the birds and the baboons across the river. Our guide, James Ikamba, was beyond amazing in his knowledge of the animals and environment, our fearless leader in adventure including the swinging bridge over the crocks in the river below. A visit to the local village was a memory of a lifetime, the beautiful smiling children and dancing with the locals, even the joking gesture of trading my daughter for 30 cows. Our lives will never be the same, the most wonderful lodge and game reserve, the incredible people and the beautiful land of Tanzania imprints our hearts."
