Although we tailor-make all our trips we have reproduced a number of popular itineraries here
Lamai Serengeti: Thank you for organising our holiday. Everything worked like clockwork and it was great to be met by someone and told where we needed to go. The Nomad Lamai and Crater Lodge were both great – the kids really enjoyed having our own butler at the Crater. The game drives were really good and we saw just about everything possible including wildebeests crossing the river (all got over safely and the crocs were nowhere to be seen), mating ostriches, rhinos and even a leopard tortoise!We got back exhausted after a great time.

Namiri Plains: Namiri was a great camp in a very remote area of the Serengeti, we saw fantastic lion and cheetah sightings we even had a kill right infront of camp literally two minutes after we arrived!! Absolutly loved it

Alex Walker's Serian Serengeti North: This was a mobile tent. Far nicer than we expected. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Food was very good. A great experience. Could easily have stayed longer.

Singita Faru Faru: Re Faru Faru This is by far the nicest of the three Singita lodges that we visited for honemooners. Sasakwa is extremely impressive, but less ‘safari’ feel and very formal. The tented camp (Sambora from memory) is not in the same league (I’m sure it’s much cheaper, and probably wonderful for the price).
There is a lodge on the Mara river (Lamai) that a number of Faru guests were complaining about. Unfortunately I think a large number of wilderbeast fall into the river during the migration (800+ apparently!) and it is impossible to remove them. As a result there is rather a bad smell in the camp. Clearly this is not something that Singita are in control of and thus extremely unfortunate for them.
The riding is based at Sasakwa but available to guests at all Singita lodges. It is included in the price (I was very positively surprised by this) and they test your ability before you are able to ride out. You need to be a pretty decent standard.
Faru Faru food has an Asian fusion touch (we loved this) whereas Sasakwa is more French/fine dining.
Rooms 1-4 have the view of the watering holes and in my opinion are the best (we were room 3). We saw a baby elephant (which thought it was drowning!) being saved by its mother and the whole herd, whilst eating our lunch, which was remarkable.
A lot of guests were very envious of our direct route to Zanzibar from Faru – thank you for arranging those flights!!
There is no shop (at least not for anything practical). But…We forgot our sunscreen – don’t worry, they have it and of course you don’t need to pay ;) ! they have thought of everything.
