Singita Faru Faru Lodge’s relaxed approach to luxury forms a golden thread throughout this lodge in the heart of the Serengeti. Its contemporary African décor and design and close-up views of a busy waterhole alongside the Grumeti River invite continuous connections with nature, while vast outdoor decks, an interactive kitchen and multiple airy enclaves for dining and drinks add personality to every culinary moment.
The sacred geometry of African tribal pattern – zig-zagged patterned vessels, intricate basketry and graphic beadwork – is softened by more rounded shapes to create a modern and sophisticated interpretation of the genre. Simple triangular and circular shapes in both form and decoration on furniture, art and objects interact to create freshness and balance. Unlimited natural light and the rich, layered colours of the landscape flow into the living spaces and suites, and are captured in a pale-on-pale palette offset by hues of winter grasses and pink river clay.
Inspiring a profound sense of wellbeing, the natural light and striking colours of the Serengeti’s grass plains, skyline and treetops seamlessly flow into the lodge’s living spaces and nine suites. Canvas roofs have been replaced with lofty, pale timber ceilings that provide deep shade and increase the sense of space and air in the expansive main living areas. A new enclosed dining space and lounge create places of retreat no matter the weather and offer incredible views across the pool area and beyond to the busy waterhole which is visited all day long by thirsty wildlife. The heart of the lodge features a signature bar-deli and café-style bar which hums with a subtle sparkle that spills over to the scenic pool areas and firepit, making for magical evenings under starlit skies, as well as spectacular sunrises.
Catering for every creature comfort with intuitive ease, the relaxed luxury of the vast bedroom suites is subtly emphasised with a calm and clean aesthetic, while oversized panoramic windows open up to welcome the restorative natural surrounds inside. Private outdoor showers allow guests to further immerse themselves in the scenery. The use of natural textures throughout creates stylish yet cosy layers that exude comfort and warmth, while the work of local artisans — from handcrafted furniture to unique fittings and bespoke objects — are displayed in all suites, providing the perfect balance to a restrained design philosophy that is both ordered and serene.
The lodge lends itself to wellness experiences such as rejuvenating massages in the spa, a secluded gym or restorative yoga in the privacy of your suite overlooking the Grumeti River. Every touchpoint of the lodge, from the building’s riverside location and magnificent surrounding landscape to the experience of being immersed in the Serengeti on twice-daily game drives further enhances the guests’ connection with nature. Finding a profound sense of place in these endless plains and grounding every visitor with the peace and perspective that comes from spending time in the wilderness, Singita Faru Faru Lodge embodies a fresh take on African bush appeal, ushering in a new era of meaningful luxury safaris.
