Faru Faru Lodge (Grumeti Game Reserve, Serengeti National Park) Tanzania
The Grumeti Reserve is located adjacent to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, bordering the national park, and encompasses over 350,000 acres of unrivalled wilderness. The concession is privately and exclusively owned by Singita Grumeti Reserves.
The Grumeti area forms part of the famous migratory route, which is travelled by hundreds of thousands of animals every year. Singita Grumeti Reserves consists of three properties: Sasakwa Lodge, Sabora Tented Camp and Faru Faru Lodge; all unique properties that celebrate this incredible landscape.
Situated on a slope, basking in the abundance of animal species and birdlife around it, Singita Faru Faru Lodge lends a contemporary signature style to safari. Inspired by a botanical theme, this riverside lodge offers barefoot elegance in a laid-back rustic setting. The organic lines of two rim-flow swimming pools echo those of a watering hole that lies just below.
The elevated viewing decks over the watering hole allow guests to view game without even leaving their lodge, and a Swahili-inspired ‘beach’ offers the opportunity for some serious rest and relaxation. The contrast of stone and canvas against cutting-edge design and comfortable furnishings is integrated in nine open-style suites, each with an outdoor shower or bath.
Nine air-conditioned en suite suites, with a bath and outdoor shower. There is a dedicated family suite suitable for a family of four. Faru Faru can accommodate 22 guests.

This is also where you’ll find a wide range of primates, such as the rare Patas and Colobus monkeys and prolific plant life and species.
