The Luxury Singita Serengeti Lodge, Tanzania

Luxury_Resort_Tanzania-03

Singita Serengeti House is an exclusive-use retreat designed for families and friends in the 350,000-acre Grumeti Reserves in the heart of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania.

Located on the slopes of Sasakwa Hill with breathtaking vistas of the endless, open plains of the Serengeti, the lodge is Singita’s response to a growing demand from discerning travellers for privacy and flexibility. Itineraries, activities and meals are tailor made and tweaked for you as you dictate the day-to-day pace and rhythm of your vacation according to your interests and needs.  The house accommodates eight people in two suites in the main house and two further guest suites on either side of the main house, connected by pathways from a central pool deck with a 25-metre rim-flow lap pool. There is also a private tennis court, mountain biking and archery.

Refined yet comfortable interiors by Cécile & Boyd’s are complemented by a relaxed, unpretentious ambience and warm-hearted service, adding up to a luxurious home environment in the bush. It is a place that encourages a wealth of shared experiences – thrilling game viewing, memorable outdoor feasts, storytelling and impromptu celebrations – from which to shape priceless memories.

Throughout the luxury African lodge, ample indoor and outdoor lounging and dining areas, all with uninterrupted views, provide relaxing spaces for you to truly immerse yourselves in the beauty of the surrounding landscape while enjoying each other’s company. A cool neutral palette of subtle, sun-bleached colours mimics the Serengeti grass plains, bringing the outside in. Mirror is used throughout the house to maximise light and space. Humble materials – natural fibres, rattan, grass matting, polished cement floors, bleached, raw timbers and local stones – bring an honest, earthy feel to the understatedly glamorous, boldly proportioned, light-saturated rooms curated with a modern African art collection by Kurt Pio and Sarah Pratt, artefacts and objects, and anthropologically relevant tribal sculpture. All the decorative pieces were designed and commissioned or sourced by Cécile & Boyd’s, including witty eye-catching paper-maché hunting ‘trophies’ and leather thong chandeliers inspired by Masaai skirts.
