Views that go on forever – Singita Milele soars above the plains

A celebration of nature is at the core of every one of our properties – each seeking to underscore and embody the unique beauty of its particular setting. At Singita Milele this is elevated to new heights in the form of a contemporary villa that pays tribute to its surroundings through a context-inspired design and an extraordinary experience of the Serengeti.

Located on the world-renowned annual wildebeest migration route, Milele is surrounded by 350,000 acres of savannah, its elevated location on the slopes of Sasakwa Hill giving it peaceful seclusion while panoramic views over the Serengeti offer an unending sense of space.

A contemporary take on safari

Curated African art and design further celebrate the setting, and offer a fresh interpretation on safari. Neutral tones and natural textures, contemporary art and design pieces by local designers create a feeling of comfortable luxury, while open spaces emphasise the sense of place.

The five suites all feature generous private decks, outdoor showers and in-room bar delis. Each, however, is individually configured with unique features, like lounges, dressing rooms and dedicated studies. Designed in tribute to iconic African wildlife, they're layered in tones and textures inspired by the unique qualities of each species and echo the vast surrounding wilderness.

Unique retreats and social spaces

This sense of space is reflected in the generous free-flowing living spaces and an expansive configuration, which offer groups and families ample room within which to enjoy the remarkable surroundings at your own pace – in peaceful solitude or as part of a sociable gathering – with a dedicated team on hand to help you tailor your experience.

Multiple spaces to lounge, eat and read strike a perfect balance between relaxation and celebration.

The communal areas, all designed around optimal relaxation and comfort, include a cinema room, fitness centre, heated spa pools and an outdoor sala. A picturesque boma and firepit are conducive to starlit evenings recollecting the events of the day, while the rimflow swimming pool is an ideal place to cool off as you survey the scenery, and the expansive terrace a perfect space to gather for celebratory meals. Feel rejuvenated by a wellness treatment inspired by ancient rituals on-site, or venture out to explore the wilderness.

Striking an easy balance between relaxation and adventure, sociability and seclusion, sophistication and comfort, the villa is an ideal retreat for groups of friends and families to gather and celebrate. Explore the newest addition to our collection here.
