Serenity in the Serengeti

Welcome to luxury in the wild – Singita Serengeti House.

This not-so-wild African abode could not be more wildly located: adjacent to Serengeti National Park, one of the most spectacular game parks in the world.

The sprawling 350,000-acre property in which the house sits is the Grumeti Reserves – an integral part of the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem and home to the Great Migration route traversed annually by more than a million wildebeest.

Despite its wild location, the house itself is comfortable; the interiors are natural yet modern mixed with locally sourced African art.

The house is fully staffed with a host, chef and guides for bush walking plus mountain bikes, a tennis court, in-house spa services and cooking classes.

Imagine enjoying this dramatic view of the vast Serengeti Plains whilst cooling off in the 25-metre wet edge pool or dozing on the day bed as the Tanzanian sun sets behind the horizon.

The house also overlooks a watering hole frequented by a variety of animals – on any given day you may spot cheetahs, black rhinos, Masai giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard from the back terrace, or even whilst soaking in the bath. Amazing.

Funds raised from the accommodation are used to assist the long-term sustainability of the reserve through low-impact tourism, so you’re actually doing a good thing assisting in the conservation of this heart and soul of Africa.

From $7143 per night.
