My husband and I traveled to Grumeti Reserve in September 2013 and had the pleasure of staying at Faru Faru for 6 nights. I won't repeat all the amazing comments about Faru Faru, but I will confirm all of them! Words cannot describe how fantastic this lodge is. The room was spectacular with floor to ceiling windows. We stayed in room 1, the furthest from the main lodge, and had views of both watering holes. My husband and I would sit on our deck, and watch herds of 30 elephant, baboons, monkeys, gazelles, etc walk by our room. The food was amazing, and each meal was creative and well thought out (apparently Faru Faru is known for their lunch, and that was always our favorite meal! Thank you Chef K!). Our butler James was also very attentive and kind (thank you for my Chai Bora with brown sugar and milk every morning!!!). We also want to thank our driver, James, for his knowledge and patience on all our game drives. Apparently, we hold the record for longest game drive, and were so grateful James stayed out with us because we got to watch the most amazing cheetah chase.
This is by far the best place we have ever stayed at. Don't hesitate, just go!!! Warmest thank yous to James, James, Chef K, Madelein and Rodger. We cannot wait to return!
