Rooms & Suites

Singita Faru Faru Lodge is a mix of contemporary, organic style and the quirky practicality of a traditional botanist’s camp. With seven 1-bedroom suites, one family suite, and one 2-bedroom suite with a private pool, Faru Faru Lodge is able to cater to couples as well as large groups and families. Unlimited natural light and the rich, layered colours of the landscape flow into the living spaces and suites, captured in a pale-on-pale palette offset by hues of winter grasses and pink river clay.

Catering for every creature comfort with intuitive ease, the relaxed luxury of Faru Faru’s vast bedroom suites is subtly emphasised with cool, clean aesthetics and wide, oversized windows that open up to welcome the restorative natural surrounds inside. You're going to love the outdoor showers and privacy offered by the thoughtful design of each accommodation. The outdoor seating area connected to each suite is also a huge bonus; it makes for the perfect space to read in between game drives.

Pool & Gym

There are two pools at the main lodge area at Singita Faru Faru Lodge as well as a private infinity pool at the lodge’s private villa suite. For those who want to squeeze in a workout, there's a fully-equipped fitness centre. The gym looks out onto picturesque views of the bush, allowing you to keep an eye on the action outside while you work out!

The Spa

The Singita wellness philosophy creates an environment for our urban-weary guests to reconnect to nature, revive their senses, restore their body and mind, and explore our African culture. The spa journey can be performed in the tranquility of the spa, out on a private deck or in the comfort of guest suites. The products used are carefully selected for the positive impact that they have on our guests and the environment; Dermalogica uses only the finest ingredients available from eco-safe sources, doesn't test on animals and are suitable for both men and women.


An interactive kitchen and multiple airy enclaves for dining and drinks add personality to every culinary moment at Singita Faru Faru Lodge. The café-style bar at the heart of the lodge hums with a subtle sparkle that spills over to the pool area. Breakfast is best enjoyed outdoors where the central waterhole and magnificent scenery consistently connect guests with nature (be sure to try the decadent french toast!). Plus, the signature ‘bar-deli’ allows guests to grab a snack to bring along on a game drive or just to have a bite in between meals.

The culinary experience at Singita’s lodges and camps is an integral part of any visit to these incredible wilderness areas. Each and every plate is an expression of the company’s commitment not only to creating an outstanding food offering that perfectly complements the exquisite surroundings in which guests find themselves, but to the importance of practising environmental sustainability at every level, including in the kitchens. From a thoughtful afternoon tea spread to a delightful three-course dinner, foodies will be in heaven at Faru Faru.

Agent Tips

  • Guests have the opportunity to visit the Anti-Poaching Observation Post that situated atop a hill with an incredible sunset view over the vast grassy plains below. The experience for Singita guests includes meeting the Singita Grumeti Fund game scouts and seeing how they live and work.
  • If you're eager to get in a run, chat with the team to see if game scouts are available to accompany you on a jog in the bush...it's truly the most epic way to exercise in the Serengeti and something the Singita team is uniquely trained to execute.
  • Take advantage of the afternoon tea before you depart for evening game drive. Not only is it delicious (they offer both sweet treats and healthy options!), but it's so fun to mingle with your fellow lodge mates. It's an intimate setting and getting to know the other guests really enhances your experience...you just may end up wanting to dine together at dinner, too.
