This place is simply fantastic... the accomodation is a dream with a wonderfully designed lodge and super furbishings.... staff were wonderful and our guide Mathew did a brilliant job during our stay there. Animal life is amazing and I managed to capture some fantastic pictures... tracking the lions in the dark was amazing.... the food was excellent and we thoroughly... More

Singita delivers big time. The room is ridiculously luxurious and beautiful. Pick up a phone and make free phone calls to the US. press a button and the windows magically slide away. outdoor shower-yummy. The food is spectacular. Am I really eating lobster in the middle of the Grumetti preserve? Every meal was a surprising adventure and an unadulterated treat.... More

We wrapped up our safari trip at Singita Faru Faru and wouldn't have done it any other way. We likely would have cried incessantly when checking in at other places if we had booked Faru Faru as our first stop. We knew we were in for a wonderful stay when we were lucky enough to spot an elusive leopard on... More

This is a modern rustic, elegant venue one could find in a luxury hotel in northern California; but add a water hole and here comes the buffalo, chimps, hyenas, gazelles and instantly one is in Singita's Faru Faru. Located in the southern area of Grameti's Game Reserve, it's pure luxury. The wall to wall portrait-sized retracting window frames the view.... More

We are at Faru Faru now and that is all we can say. No way! By far the greatest hotel, lodge, 5 star restaurant, and zen spot we have ever been. Imagine sitting in your 1,000 sq. ft room, looking out your glass wall window at elephants in the watering hole and monkeys in the trees. It goes on with... More

Had an absolutely epic stay at Faru Faru and Sabora camp for honeymoon, and despite the exorbitant cost this place is worth every penny. Food and accommodations are akin to a Four Seasons, and the service is impeccable (hat tip to Watson our dedicated server). Their wine program is impressive, and it's getting even better now that they have a... More

We stayed first at Singita Tented Camp for 3 nights and then came to Faru Faru. Both were fabulous experiences. The game drives (leopard, cheetah, tons of lions, giraffes, …..), the meals, service, rooms, amenities (fitness center, spa, free laundry) were all top notch. The room in Faru Faru was beautiful - very large window looking out onto a watering... More

This is a world class lodge and game reserve in every respect...location, quality of the rooms, cuisine, wines, game and service, service, service! I have been going on safari all over Africa for over 20 years and this is right up at the top. Our guide, Medard, a lovely man with a vast knowledge of the bush, took us one... More

James was our incredible ranger, highly recommended. We went in December 2012 and saw both cheetahs and lions with their cubs. Big heards with thousands of wildeebest and buffalo. The service at the hotel is flawless, great and lots of food. Yes, it's expensive, but its worth every penny.

Great staff, everyone always went the extra mile. They make it a very personal experience. Great food, the head chef Peter was fabulous and made great gluten free recipes for our family for every meal. Great rooms with a great space for the kids. It was just the perfect marriage between staying in a tent in the bush and luxury... More
