We travelled in De. 2014. It`s sure a luxury lodge and they know how to spoil their customers. We stayed in the biggest villa, 2 bedroom overlooking the river and the only thing we could say upon entering the villa is - WOW! :) Location, lodge`s set-up and all it has to offer is just fantastic!! We had few game...

This was the last stop on our October Safari. When we arrived our driver Francis asked what we wanted to see, I said we still hadn't seen a leopard and that I really wanted to see one. Low and behold, on our drive from the airstrip (which is the nicest airstrip ever btw) Francis found me a leopard! At that...

Singita delivers big time. The room is ridiculously luxurious and beautiful. Pick up a phone and make free phone calls to the US. press a button and the windows magically slide away. outdoor shower-yummy. The food is spectacular. Am I really eating lobster in the middle of the Grumetti preserve? Every meal was a surprising adventure and an unadulterated treat....

We wrapped up our safari trip at Singita Faru Faru and wouldn't have done it any other way. We likely would have cried incessantly when checking in at other places if we had booked Faru Faru as our first stop. We knew we were in for a wonderful stay when we were lucky enough to spot an elusive leopard on...

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 Grameti's Game Reserve, it's pure luxury. The wall to wall portrait-sized retracting window frames the view....

We are at Faru Faru now and that is all we can say. No way! By far the greatest hotel, lodge, 5 star restaurant, and zen spot we have ever been. Imagine sitting in your 1,000 sq. ft room, looking out your glass wall window at elephants in the watering hole and monkeys in the trees. It goes on with...

Had an absolutely epic stay at Faru Faru and Sabora camp for honeymoon, and despite the exorbitant cost this place is worth every penny. Food and accommodations are akin to a Four Seasons, and the service is impeccable (hat tip to Watson our dedicated server). Their wine program is impressive, and it's getting even better now that they have a...

We stayed first at Singita Tented Camp for 3 nights and then came to Faru Faru. Both were fabulous experiences. The game drives (leopard, cheetah, tons of lions, giraffes, …..), the meals, service, rooms, amenities (fitness center, spa, free laundry) were all top notch. The room in Faru Faru was beautiful - very large window looking out onto a watering...

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 wildeebest and buffalo. The service at the hotel is flawless, great and lots of food. Yes, it's expensive, but its worth every penny.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Singita Faru Faru Lodge is set in Grumeti in northern Tanzania, forming part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. Built on a gently sloping hill, this riverine lodge, positioned on the renowned migratory route, is a place where you can quite literally expect the unexpected. Informal, unconventional and surprising at every turn, Singita Faru Faru Lodge is a mix of contemporary, organic style and the quirky practicality of a traditional botanist's camp. With such close proximity to the river and plains, guests have the unique opportunity to experience a very close connection with the wilderness. ... more   less
