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

Faru Faru was our last stop on our trip to Tanzania. It was the nicest place we stayed, we wanted to start the trip roughing it in camps to begin with then ending with luxury. I enjoyed every aspect of the trip and each had it's advantages. As far as Faru Faru...WOW. When we arrived we had staff waiting for... More

A beautiful lodge right on the Grumeti River. Unfortunately in August the river was quite dry- however, still lots to see ! The lodge itself has 2 swimming pools and 2 watering holes offering superb viewing of the animals who visit! As at all Singita properties the service and food are excellent. The staff are all wonderful in anticipating your... More

After honeymooning in Singita Lebombo back in 2009 and being blown away, we decided to celebrate our 5 year anniversary at another Singita property and boy are we glad we chose the Grumeti Reserve property. Our visit was in early May and we stayed 2 nights at Sabora and 2 nights at Faru Faru and we visited Sasakwa for lunch... More

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the incredible beauty, service, and friendliness of this lodge and the wonderful people on the staff! The lodge is open air to the magnificent Serengeti reserve yet there is not one speck of dust to be seen in the lodge or the rooms. Within one day the staff knew our names,... More

Wow! This place is perfection. The best accommodation experience of my life and ive travelled all over the world. This is complete fantasy land and cannot be improved upon. We arrived to sweeping views of the wildebeest migration (reminded me of Fawlty Towers) from the reflection pool. The service and staff was on a truly exceptional level. Having one person... More

Faru Faru is, in my opinion, the best of the three Singita properties in the Grumeti reserve. Management has created a perfect African lodge atmosphere. It is a great mix of wilderness and refinement. The rooms are absolutely wonderful and the common areas both casual and comfortable. The food was also fantastic. The rest of the review below applies to... More

We stayed at Faru Faru for four nights recently as part of our honeymoon. My hubbie is a safari buff so has travelled extensively in Africa and he was impressed. Our experience at the lodge was fantastic. The food was exceptional - every meal was exceptional (and we are foodies). We liked the platters at lunch which were very healthy.... More

I've built camps and stayed at 100s of safari lodges/camps over the past 30 years as a safari guide. I simply loved it here at Faru Faru. The rooms are first class and the food was absolutely the best I've had EVER on safari. Well done Singita! But its the wildlife we go to the bush for RIGNT? From woodland... More
