An Expansive, Exclusive Sanctuary – The Ultimate Serengeti Experience

With the health and wellbeing of guests top of mind, Singita Serengeti House offers the ultimate isolation and privacy in the vast open spaces of the Serengeti. This African home is steeped in tranquillity, while allowing guests to continuously tap into the healing rhythms of nature. Set right on the savannahs, surrounded by a vast, untouched wilderness, this exclusive-use villa provides an unrivalled escape – with effortless distancing from the world, it’s demands and distractions.

Featuring every conceivable comfort, the soothing living spaces spill onto spacious outdoor areas that include multiple dining decks, a 25-metre infinity pool and sweeping views of the grasslands – and of the wildlife activity at the busy waterhole nearby.

Set on the gentle slopes of Sasakwa Hill, this contemporary African home’s remote location ensures endless opportunities for families or friends to celebrate their most precious connections – surrounded by nothing but nature.

It’s about being together in the moment, with no distractions, demands or decisions – and the freedom to let the days flow naturally in one of Africa’s most iconic settings.

Itineraries are tailored entirely to guests’ wishes, with a full staff complement – including a Field Guide, chef and host – catering intuitively to their needs. Situated in the heart of the 350,000-acre Grumeti Reserve and right on the doorstep of the annual Great Migration route, Serengeti House includes private access to this untouched wilderness and offers a range of opportunities to experience Africa’s wildlife up close.

Activities can be adapted and planned according to preference and private game drives, bush walks, wine tastings, cooking classes, hot-air ballooning and more allow guests to truly immerse themselves in the experience. The villa also includes a tennis court, fitness centre, media room and massage treatment sala. Every meal and menu is personalised according to guests’ tastes and requirements – with our farm-to-table food journey celebrating fresh seasonal flavours, and finding inspiration in Africa’s rich history of traditional regional cooking.

The modern eat-in kitchen provides the perfect backdrop for inspiring interactive cooking classes with Singita’s consummate chefs, while the inviting firepit outside calls for long, languid evenings under Africa’s starlit skies.

With discerning travellers yearning for havens of simplicity and calm, and the profound benefits of reconnecting with the authentically healing powers of nature becoming more pronounced, Serengeti House presents a unique opportunity to combine an idyllic escape with the epitome of casual safari elegance. Peaceful, private and restorative, it’s the ideal setting to share a lifechanging escape to one of the most iconic landscapes on Earth.

Singita Serengeti House accommodates up to eight guests, featuring two suites in the main house as well as two garden suites linked by short, paved pathways. Each of the four boldly proportioned suites feature serene views, spacious en-suite bathrooms, outdoor showers and private terraces. Children of all ages are welcome.
