Singita Faru Faru Lodge

Singita Faru Faru is one of our very favourite lodges. Run by Singita, the lodge is the lovechild of Paul Tudor Jones (a billionaire who runs them as his playthings!) and Faru Faru can be counted as probably the best safari lodge in Tanzania.  One of three of their supreme properties (Sasakwa and Sabora being the others) it forms part of the private Grumeti Reserves, situated in the west of the Serengeti. 

Singita Faru Faru Camp - The Facts 

Faru Faru is located in the private Grumeti Reserve in the western Serengeti and is home to Sasakwa and Sabora Tented Camp also owned by Singita. This area of the Serengeti is accessible on schedule flights from Arusha and other areas in Tanzania. The reserve is private, meaning the only vehicles you will see on your Tanzania safari are from one of the 3 Singita properties and is thus a wonderful lodge from which to take a Serengeti Safari.        

Because it’s a private park you can night drive, horse-ride and walk.  A modern interpretation of a classic safari lodge, it has intimacy, luxury and excellent guiding in spades.  Awesome in the migration season, but the resident game here is so strong that it makes for a great place to visit all year around. All three properties in Grumeti Reserves are faultless, but Faru Faru is probably our favourite due to its intimacy.              .

The main area of the lodge is set in the open, with views down onto an open grass land area with a watering hole, which often attracts herd of elephants in the dry season. There are different lounge areas, steeped in wooden decking, dropping onto a beautiful plunge pool, there are also many intimate areas where private dining can be set up.

Singita Faru Faru has 9 modern and incredibly spacious suites with views onto the river bed. The front of the rooms are completely made of glass and it’s possible, at a touch of a button, to slide these windows open. There is an indoor and outdoor shower and the rooms are fully air conditioned. There is a 2 bed villas as well as a family villa.

The main activity here is game driving in open sided land rovers; however, in the private reserve there is one of the best horse riding safari operations in Tanzania, best suited to intermediate to experienced riders and a fantastic way of seeing the Serengeti.

Singita Faru Faru - Reviews

All three lodges (Plantation, Singita Mara, Faru Faru) for the safari expeditions were over the top (all fives by our reckoning) and provided a fine experience from all perspectives.  Attention to detail and personal service were above and beyond.  Animal viewing was exceptional and the guides were among the best we have enjoyed in our African trips.
