Opening May 2024 – Singita Milele, a private retreat in the Serengeti

A truly one-of-a-kind escape in the iconic Serengeti landscape, Singita Milele is the newest addition to our portfolio of unique properties across Africa.

Located in the Grumeti reserve, a vast and protected piece of pristine savannah, this new property, which will form part of the Singita Private Villa Collection, takes our desire to create unsurpassed safari experiences to even greater heights. Set to open in May 2024, it adds even further cachet to our already diverse range of lodges and camps in Tanzania.

Situated on a hilltop, with an awe-inspiring vantage point of the landscape below, this ultra-luxurious retreat is the epitome of exclusivity and offers the signature Singita experience at its very pinnacle.

A sense of place

Conceived to inspire and create the ultimate escape, Milele’s inspired design offers as many spaces to relax as there are to engage with travel companions – from social spaces to spend leisurely hours together with family and friends, or quieter retreats in which to peacefully enjoy the scenery solo.

The spacious and carefully considered communal areas – boma, outdoor yoga and wellness sala, firepit, spectacular infinity pool and jacuzzi – allow for continual connection to the remarkable setting and the rare opportunity to be at one with this spectacular wilderness.

The five expansive guest suites – a configuration that accommodates up to 10 guests – are individually designed to celebrate the region’s iconic wildlife (each an ode to the spirit and energy of a specific species). Generous terraces and decks with panoramic views of the plains below, beautifully appointed dressing rooms, outdoor showers and private jacuzzis, all converge to create superlative comfort and complete relaxation.

Unparalleled luxury

With a dedicated team at your service – a personal chef, Field Guides and your own private game vehicles, villa hosts and housekeeping personnel all on site – your every need will be seamlessly catered to, creating a seamlessly luxurious experience in the privacy of what is your home for the duration of your stay.

While there are myriad activities to enjoy out in the wilderness, there is also plenty to keep guests engaged and entertained in the endless comfort of the villa itself. These range from a 10-person movie theatre for indoor days, a private fitness centre to continue your usual routine, and wellness facilities and treatments to deepen your sense of relaxation.

When it comes to dining, a dedicated chef will curate menus to your taste with fresh seasonal produce and introduce you to exciting local flavours and ingredients. For wine lovers, a cellar stocked with the finest bottles, carefully selected over the years by our expert wine division team, and matured to perfection, provides the ultimate space in which to explore and appreciate new varieties and vintages.

From wine tasting with our expert sommelier to wellness treatments on site, your every need will be catered to by a dedicated team
