Singita Faru Faru Lodge

Singita Faru Faru is located close to the Grumeti River in the eastern section of the private Grumeti Reserves bordering the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park.

Singita are known to be market leaders in providing sophisticated, top end safari lodges and Faru Faru is pretty much as good as it gets in East Africa. Singita Grumeti Reserves is home to three permanent properties – Sasakwa, Sabora Plains and Faru Faru. Whilst all three properties are excellent, we tend to recommend Faru Faru most, because it offers the luxury without losing the charm of a bush lodge. Sabora is tented and doesn’t offer the same levels of luxury, whilst flagship Sasakwa is a much bigger build property (more hotel like) though it does have the most amazing views. Faru Faru offers all the sophistication and service required, combined with exclusivity and a lovely bush ambience. The rooms have views out through the bush where animals can often be seen. Obviously Singita are an expensive brand and that needs to be taken into account, but if you are looking for luxury in the Serengeti, Faru Faru is a natural consideration, especially from late May to July when the migration could be passing through.
