- 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.
Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.

We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.
Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!
We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.
Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
