Faru Faru Lodge is the most southerly of the Singita's properties in the Serengeti, and is close to the Grumeti River and the Serengeti's Western Corridor. It has views over the undulating, short grass hills of the Grumeti Reserve and is surrounded by countless acacia trees. The lodge also looks over a watering hole which is popular with the passing...

This review is of our stay in early June 2103..First of all we got there in the middle of the migration - so i'm a bit biased..The migration is one of the planet's greatest spectacles and is to be seen to be believed. Singita Grumeti is one of earth's most remarkable places and the beauty of the landscape is matched... More

What more can I add to previous reviews? This is an exceptional lodge in every respect. Rooms are huge with every amenity. Free calls to the USA, air conditioning, two minibars, outdoor stone shower, huge windows for game viewing, comfy bed. Service is impeccable. Guiding exceptional. Just great. 10 out of 10.

Our only wish is that we could have stayed at this camp more nights! We stayed for our honeymoon and it was beyond words. By far the most incredible place we have ever stayed and the staff was amazing. We could not say a bad thing about Faru Faru if we tried. Kim our guide was superb - so knowledgable... More

We stayed three nights in the Singenta Faru Faru Lodge in the Grumeti Reserve, which is part of the Serengeti in Tanzania. The lodge was built five years ago and is still in perfect condition. I do not need to go into more details about the suites (which are extremely spacious with a full glass window offering a splendid view... More

We woke up on the third morning at our stay in the Grumeti and started the day with a game drive that would lead us all the way to Faru Faru, just in time for their famous meze fare lunch, and for a few hours we would have the entire lodge all to ourselves. Now that's privacy. As we dismounted... More

Just returned from a stay at the Faru Faru. This place is magical, one that you will never forget! The staff is so warm and professional- they pay attention to every detail. The guides are so knowledgeable that you will learn everything there is know about the bush. It is worth every penny! The rooms along the river are really... More

In May, 2013, my wife and I celebrated our honeymoon over the course of 6 spectacular days/nights at the Singita Grumeti Faru Faru Lodge and Sabora Tented Camp. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a more magical experience. As a back-to-back winner of Travel and Leisure’s World’s Best Hotel, one’s expectations are quite high. To surpass those... More

A beautiful lodge with great rooms and service. Meals were a little lengthy if you wanted to get on with your day. All was great except for total failure on the horseback riding that was expected to be available and was not.
