Located in the legendary Serengeti’s western corridor, Singita Faru Faru Lodge looks over a natural waterhole as well as the stunning tree-line of River Grumeti. The 9 thatched suites built with stone and covered with canvas (including a 2-bedroom villa plus a family suite) offer an experience of a typical safari camp, yet their interiors offer the ultimate contemporary elegance with wide glass windows, mirror room dividers as well as a very comfortable bathtub.
Because of the nearby natural watering hole, guests don’t actually have to leave this place since the game comes to them. The encompassing grassland is swarmed with a lot of wildlife that guests may lie around in the swimming-pool as they enjoy views at the waterhole.
