The sweeping plains of one of the continent’s most iconic landscapes stretch endlessly before you from the shaded veranda and infinity pool of this modern African home, while the surrounding 350,000 private acres of wilderness envelope you in exquisite stillness. Elephants pad down the hill at sunset to drink at the waterhole and zebras graze quietly alongside antelope and giraffe. The clink of ice in a glass; the flicker of a lamp; shafts of golden light falling on a cloud-like bed. This is Singita Serengeti House.

This home, tucked into the gentle slopes of Sasakwa Hill and designed for exclusive use by families or groups of friends in search of total tranquility, offers guests sophisticated safari living in a home of their own. A sense of relaxed freedom to enjoy the Serengeti and engage with nature on your own terms defines the experience here, creating opportunities for meaningful connection with the environment and each other from the moment you arrive. Uninterrupted views, a calming colour palette and the attention of a dedicated staff place the focus squarely on what is most important: having all the time and space you need to fully immerse yourself in wild Africa.

The surrounding grasslands, kopjes and riparian forests are yours to explore, whether on game drives with your group’s dedicated Field Guide or on foot, getting up close to the landscape while tracking animals through the wilderness on a guided nature walk. The protected area in which Singita Serengeti House sits is home to an abundant wildlife population, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Grumeti Fund; Singita’s non-profit conservation partner in Tanzania responsible for preserving the flora and fauna of this critical ecosystem. A wedge of land along the perennial Grumeti River, Singita Grumeti is traversed year-round by giraffe, eland, hartebeest and impala, as well as their ever-present predators. The river itself is the setting for annual crossings by migrating wildebeest and the large crocodiles that lay in wait for them can often be seen sunning themselves on its wooded banks. Simply put, Singita Grumeti offers some of the finest game viewing on Earth.
