Singita, which means ‘Place of miracles’, is synonymous with top-notch safaris and their Faru Faru River Lodge is no different. Built on a gently-sloping hill that overlooks the Grumeti River in the Serengeti National Park, this stone-and-canvas lodge reflects the classic style and colonial elegance of traditional East African safari camps.

With its riverine location, is it perfectly positioned to catch herds of game and predators as they come to drink and offers thrilling proximity to the Great Migration, when millions of wildebeest and other game hurtle from southern Tanzania across the country and into Kenya in search of fresh grazing.

In addition to excellent game viewing, Singita Faru Faru River Lodge also provides guests with myriad other activities, such as archery, croquet, mountain biking and dawn hot-air ballooning, which allows you to drift silently over the plains as they slowly come to life. Add stargazing, a beautiful spa, swimming in the incredible stone-clad infinity pool that overlooks the Grumeti River and personalised service to each of the only eight suites, and it immediately becomes clear that this is a lodge for safari goers who would like the best of both nature and nurture.


  • Great Migration sightings in season
  • Only 8 air-conditioned suites
  • 2 swimming pools
  • Wi-Fi, spa & satellite TV
  • Hot-air ballooning
  • Croquet & archery
  • 2-bedroom Villa Suite


  • Biking
  • Bird watching
  • Game drives
  • Specialist guides
  • Star gazing
I personally find the rooms and public areas at Faru Faru simply amazing! The public areas invite to just sit down and relax and enjoy the views and the rooms have sliding windows onto the plains with permanent busy water holes. There is so much attention to detail: the rooms even have a knitting basket and a paint set in case any of these tickle your fancy!

Two Bedroom Suite

Faru Faru has one Villa Suite which can accommodate four guests in elegance and privacy. Comprising two spacious rooms and a shared lounge and dining area, these suites offer the perfect retreat for families and couples travelling together.


Each of the eight air-conditioned suites at Singita Faru Faru River Lodge is elegantly furnished with simple, comfortable finishes in calm, earthy tones.  A large panoramic window allows you to take in the view without leaving the comfort of your bed while each room is also equipped with a mini bar and viewing deck with a Swarovski spotting scope. Each suite has a reading area, Wi-Fi and is en suite with a bathtub-with-a-view and a stone-packed outdoor shower. Should you feel inspired, paint or sketch with the watercolours and pencils that have been thoughtfully provided for a once-in-a-lifetime memento of your travels.


Sensitively designed to blend in with its beautiful natural surroundings, Singita Faru Faru River Lodge makes the most of its riverside position by ensuring that the dining area, bar, decks and shady lawn have views of the popular waterhole and rumbling Grumeti River.

Head to the spa for a jetlag-zapping massage and, once revived, try your hand at the historic sports of archery or croquet. If you prefer more of a thrill, head out on a mountain bike, or take to the skies in colourful hot-air balloon, one of the best ways to appreciate the enormity of the undulating landscape before you.


‘Elegant simplicity’ is possibility the best description of the menu at Singita Faru Faru River Lodge. Fresh local produce, spices from Zanzibar, creative cooks and a dedicated pastry chef come together to conjure up vegetarian sushi, fresh tomato salsa, succulent kebabs, homemade pastel-coloured sorbets with granadilla sauce and from-scratch pineapple relish that adds a sweet tropical tang. Accompany your meals with a thoughtful selection from the international wine and champagne list.
