  • Location:
    Faru Faru is in a private reserve called the Singita Grumeti Reserve in the Serengeti.
  • Getting there:
    While it is possible to drive to the lodges and camps in Singita Grumeti and Lamai, the team strongly recommend flying for a more efficient and enjoyable travel experience. The team can arrange scheduled flights or private charters for your trip. All flights land at the Singita Sasakwa airstrip located 40 minutes from Faru Faru Lodge. You can fly or drive from Kilimanjaro airport or Arusha.
  • What to pack:
    Your safari bag, packed properly, will ensure that you have everything you need for the ultimate African bush experience. Cotton clothing in neutral colours such as green, khaki and grey is recommended for game drives and bush walks. It is advisable to avoid white and dark colours as they tend to attract bugs. If it rains during a game drive, waterproof ponchos will be provided. No formal wear is required at any of our lodges
  • Restaurants:
    Vast outdoor decks and multiple airy enclaves allow for intimate dining and drinks, while the café-style bar at the heart of the lodge hums with a subtle sparkle – spilling over to the pool area and firepit, and making for magical evenings under starlit skies. Nouvelle-African gourmet cuisine is prepared from authentic East African recipes and paired with fine wines from the Singita cellars.
  • Spa:
    At Singita, the enduring purpose to restore the land and its wildlife extends to offering healing experiences to the guests at every touchpoint. The dedicated treatments in the massage spaces tap into the profound benefits of indigenous wisdoms and essential oils that relax, replenish and revive. Each tailor-made therapy can be customised and timed to preference, ensuring a completely personalised experience.
