Faru Faru Lodge

Expect the Unexpected
Serengeti - Tanzania Grumeti - Tanzania

Singita Faru Faru Lodge is set in Grumeti in northern Tanzania, forming part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem.

Inspired by the fusion of traditional African craft with Danish simplicity, Singita Faru Faru Lodge offers the epitome of a contemporary wilderness setting in the heart of the Serengeti. This unconventional lodge is built on a gently sloping hill and its close proximity to the river and plains affords guests a front-row seat to the natural surrounds.

Expansive living and dining areas and inviting enclosed spaces all offer cool places of retreat, while the interactive kitchen adds an exciting dynamic to the dining experience.

What’s more, the Singita signature ‘bar-deli’ is tailormade for shared drinks and snacks – while enjoying the breathtaking views that form the backdrop of this cleverly designed lodge.

Shaped organically with its main focus on the waterhole, Faru Faru’s architecture makes a bold, but magical statement, enhanced by the creative use of locally sourced natural materials. The lodge also boasts a back-to-basics colour palette of bone, ivory, nude and clay, perfectly combining rustic and real bush appeal brushed over with a fresh and clean-lined modernity, allowing animals and nature to take centre stage.
