Location: Grumeti Reserves, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Set within Singita’s 350,000-acre private reserve in northern Tanzania. Situated in the western corridor of the legendary Serengeti, Faru Faru Lodge overlooks a natural waterhole and tree line of the Grumeti River, this lodge ushers a new era of luxury wilderness safaris. As a result of the watering hole on-site, guests see the animals come to drink.
The nine stone, canvas, and thatched suites (including a family suite and a 2-bedroom villa) have the air of a classic safari camp, yet the interiors offer the ultimate in contemporary chic with panoramic glass windows, mirrored room dividers, and claw-foot baths. The décor & design includes airy bedroom suites, vast outdoor decks, and multiple airy enclaves that allow for intimate dining and drinks.
A café-style bar at the heart of the lodge, the pool area, and the fire pit. The swimming pool overlooking the waterhole, recline in the Lodge’s elevated viewing decks, or unwind in the comfort of your luxurious room and watch as predators and prey are drawn right up to the lodge.
The staff here have attention to detail, personalised care, and an emphasis on a high-touch travel experience throughout are the hallmarks of the service. Dedicated to building strong personal relationships with their guests, to ensure that your wishes are not just understood and met, but also exceeded.
