Forget about the usual African safari and come and indulge your senses at Faru Faru River Lodge! This stunning riverine lodge is one of a number of luxury lodges in the Serengeti game reserve, and is built on the slope of a hill which forms part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. Eccentric and unusual, the Singita Faru Faru Lodge provides an eclectic mix of styles, and provides a natural and comfortable yet luxurious ambience. The lodge is based on the river and is on the migratory route, and guests here find it easy to engage and connect with the wilderness of Africa.
A wide variety of game can be spotted here including wildebeest, bat eared foxes, black rhino and many others. The Serengeti plains can also be explored on horseback, and often riders are treated to the opportunity to ride with a herd of wildebeest or zebra, which is indeed the best way to experience the migration. Horseback rides are tailored to the requirements and skill levels of the guests, and can be as short or long as desired. Non-riders and children are also welcome and are offered regular game drives.
The lodge comprises of seven single suites and one family suite. An additional plush villa provides accommodation for four adults and boasts its own private swimming pool. The rooms are all luxuriously decorated and offer great style and relaxation. Large glass windows encourage great views. No phone signals ensure total relaxation and an opportunity to really get away from it all!
In the main lodge area there are two crystal clear swimming pools – one styled as a Swahili beach with sand – for a refreshing swim after a dusty ride. The spa offers relaxing massages and other treatments, and you can remain fit in the well-equipped gymnasium. There are also two televisions in the main lounge that offers Wi-Fi access.
Of course children are also welcome and child minders can be organised by the hotel. Activities are custom planned to suit any family. Rates include all food and drink, bush safaris, telephone calls and also road transfers between hotel and airstrips.
