- Private Reserve
- Migration Route Location
- Great Facilities
Located in the exclusive Singita Grumeti Reserve, Northern Tanzania, Singita Faru Faru offers a high end safari experience with stylish, comfortable facilities and superb game viewing.
The main areas of this contemporary lodge are open air and comprise two swimming pools, outdoor dining areas and lounge with television area and bar. The facilities are extensive and include a spa, gym, wine cellar, boutique shop and gallery.
Situated on a renowned migratory route, it is safe to say guests here will not be disappointed by the game viewing. Over one million wildebeest pass through the reserve during migration each year with the best times to see the main migration being May to June, and October to November. Game drives are led twice daily by expert rangers as well as walking safaris, and more unusually, horseback safaris and night safaris.
Faru Faru has only 9 suites, housing up to 22 guests on an exclusive basis. In addition to the 7 one-bedroom suites, there is a family suite, plus a two-bedroom suite with a private infinity pool. Beautifully furnished with natural materials and colours, all the rooms are ensuite and spacious. Large windows and outdoor seating allow guests to take in the surrounding scenery and wildlife from the comfort of their rooms.
For families with young children this is an unbeatable choice. Unusually, children of all ages are welcome at Singita Faru Faru and there are no age restrictions on game drives. A number of educational activities are organised to keep children busy, along with a ‘Mini Rangers Course’ which teaches them about their African surroundings. Such a family friendly atmosphere is a big plus for families with younger children looking to find a safari that is inclusive of the whole family. Babysitting services are also available.
The Singita Reserve is known for its exclusivity and high quality accommodation so a high price tag should be expected for any visit to this area. A flawless facility in an excellent location, Singita Faru Faru is a winning choice for those looking for a top-end safari experience.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
