Since the early days, travelers have come from afar to experience the magic of the Serengeti as this is where the great annual wildebeest migration passes through, giving guests front-row seats to the greatest wildlife show on earth. Spanning over 350 000 acres of untouched wilderness, Singita Grumeti Reserves is located in northern Tanzania and forms part of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem, on the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park.
Singita Grumeti Reserves forms part of the world-famous migratory route, although year-round the greatest diversity of large mammals in the world can be found. There’s an abundance of game including 25 species of large carnivores, 40 species of herbivores and a staggering diversity of birds (including five endemic species with a high concentration of raptors).
The Singita Grumeti Reserve is an area equivalent in size to Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Park, and yet Singita Grumeti invites only 53 guests to experience the reserve at any one time – unquestionably a most precious privilege that allows you to experience the Serengeti ecosystem in unsurpassed exclusivity.
The nine stone, canvas and thatched suites have the air of a classic safari camp, yet the interiors offer the ultimate in contemporary chic with panoramic glass windows, mirrored room dividers and claw-foot baths. The central areas have been carefully constructed from local stone and are cleverly designed to take advantage of the views; a river-sand ‘beach’ has been created for sunbathing; a fabulous swimming pool overlooks the waterhole and elevated viewing decks make perfect spots for surveying the rugged landscape beyond.
The lodges offer a variety of activities such as professionally guided game drives in open sided vehicles and bush walks; relaxing post-safari spa treatments; an excellent equestrian center which offers experienced riders the chance to ride out on the Serengeti plains; clay tennis courts, star-gazing safaris, mountain biking; hot-air ballooning; archery; lawn croquet; badminton, and billiards.
