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. Built on a gently sloping hill, this riverine lodge, positioned on the renowned migratory route, is a place where you can quite literally expect the unexpected.

Inspired by the fusion of traditional African craft with a Danish simplicity, Singita Faru Faru Lodge is undergoing a revitalisation, to be re-imagined within its wilderness setting in the Serengeti.  The main living and dining areas will be more expansive, with new enclosed dining and lounge areas creating cool places of retreat.  An interactive kitchen will add a new dynamic to the dining experience, while open seating areas will all be pulled forward for closer engagement with nature.

New central areas, including a Singita signature ‘bar-deli’ will encourage guests to come together to drink, eat and enjoy the breath-taking views. Shaped organically with its  main focus on the waterhole, the new architecture makes a bold, but magical statement enhanced by the creative use of locally sourced natural materials. The revitalised lodge will boast 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.
