Singita Mara River Tented Camp is located on the northern banks of the world-renowned Mara River in the Lamai triangle.
Wildebeest cross the Mara River at various points and the camp’s unique location provides spectacular opportunities to view the crossings.
This area boasts one of the highest year-round concentrations of wildlife in the Serengeti National Park, thanks to its distinctive soil composition.
This includes resident plains game, big cats and elephant, in addition to enormous populations of crocodile and hippo in the Mara River. Singita Mara River Tented Camp was built “off-the-grid”, seeking to eliminate the unnecessary use of energy and non-biodegradable materials.
The camp instead relies on a custom designed solar power system and the use of only recycled and natural materials.

Conservation at Singita Serengeti
The Serengeti plains team with wildlife, including vast herds of plains game, a plethora of predators and the spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration.
As the custodian of more than 350,000 acres of the world-renowned Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania – which is home to the Great Migration – the Grumeti Fund is responsible for the reintroduction and recovery of stable wildlife populations, while ensuring that neighbouring rural communities benefit tangibly from these natural areas.
Faced with challenges including uncontrolled illegal hunting, rampant wildfires and spreading strands of invasive alien vegetation when they took over the management of the area in 2003, the Fund dedicated itself to transform severely depleted wildlife numbers into thriving populations once more.
Restoring this once barren and highly degraded region to a flourishing wilderness, their successes include the remarkable recovery of many species – including buffalo, wildebeest and elephant populations, and in 2019, the Fund carried out the largest single relocation and reintroduction of 9 critically endangered Eastern Black Rhino.
The Trust also manages an onsite Environmental Education Centre for school teachers and children to immerse themselves in Outdoor Education and fieldwork, and a world-class culinary school.
