Adjacent to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National Park and within the Grumeti concession of Tanzania, Singita Faru Faru River Lodge overlooks a waterhole and the Grumeti River. Faru Faru is a classic East African safari camp and located on a section of the wildebeest migration route. The Grumeti River lies in the path of the Great Migration, affording guests the opportunity to witness hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross crocodile infested waters. Private game viewing is ensured thanks to Singita’s exclusive rights to host guests. Built from local stone and rock and shaded by sycamore trees, exclusive Faru Faru River Lodge accommodation has its own private beach as well as a private waterhole.
With only 6 suites, personal service and complete privacy is guaranteed. Each suite has a reading area, en suite bathroom and a deck. The dining hall is elegant, the lounge invitingly comfortable, the pool heated and the view decks carefully positioned to ensure prime, elevated views.
Spotting scopes and an abundance of game at the water hole brings African wildlife to virtually within reach of your fingertips. Game drives are available as are walks beginning at the Faru Faru River Lodge and tracing the Grumeti River with its abundant fauna and flora. Alternatively horseback safaris and sunrise balloon safaris over the Serengeti can be arranged. Relax at Faru Faru River Lodge enjoying phenomenal game viewing from the pool, verandas or even your Victorian bathtub. Other activities include mountain biking, archery and lawn croquet. Faru Faru River Lodge’s exclusive setting merges a rustic façade with elegance and attentive service, allowing you to dine in private or gather around a roaring fire under the Africa sky and swap tales with fellow guests.
Camille chose beautiful and perfectly located lodges for this family's East Africa safari especially as seeing the Great Migration was on their wish list. She achieved a nice balance of interesting animal-related activities with time relaxing and just enjoying the wilderness.
