Singita Mara River Tented Camp (Lamai Triangle, Serengeti National Park) Tanzania
Singita Mara River Tented Camp is the epitome of sustainable tourism and consciously seeks to eliminate the unnecessary use of energy and non-biodegradable materials.
In keeping with this philosophy, the camp operates “off-the-grid” and relies entirely on a custom designed solar system for its power and the use of recycled and natural materials wherever possible.
Inside the camp, bohemian chic sets the tone for cool relaxation, where spun natural fabrics, canvas, stone and raw leather blend with Maasai primary colours and elegant art pieces by young African designers and craftsmen. The functional East African design encourages guests to embrace the outdoors and connect with nature.
Singita Mara River Tented Camp is located on the northern banks of the world-renowned Mara River in the Lamai triangle. Lamai, an area celebrated for its annual wildebeest migration crossings, covers 98,000 acres of the northern-most tip of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Wildebeest cross the Mara River at various points and the camp’s unique location provides spectacular opportunities to view the crossings.
This area boasts one of
the highest year-round concentrations of wildlife in the
Serengeti National Park, thanks to its distinctive soil
composition. This includes resident plains game, big cats
and elephant, in addition to enormous populations of
crocodile and hippo in the Mara River.
