Singita Grumeti
Whether you're up for the adventure of a mobile tented camp, or would prefer a private house staffed with personal chefs, Singita Grumeti is the place for the ultimate safari experience and unbeatable Great Migration views. The 350,000-acre protected nature reserve is home to five distinct properties, ensuring there is an option for any traveler—though luxury, service, and attention to detail are constants across the board. 

The five Grumeti properties offer a singular setting and experience, along with the option to visit any of the others for meals, or to make use of their facilities. Choices include traditional tented-style camps like Sabora Tented Camp, with its plush, 1920s-explorer-inspired decor, and Explore Mobile Tented Camp, an eco-friendly setup that can be moved as the migration progresses. Faru Faru Lodge features contemporary interiors and boasts two striking pools, while recent-addition Serengeti House is a four-suite private house favored by honeymooning celebs. The grande dame of the reserve, Sasakwa Lodge, boasts luxury cottages, a spa, a wine cellar, fine restaurants, a billiards room, a conservatory, and even an equestrian center. 

With all this to choose from—not to mention the endless panoramas, gourmet cuisine, and unforgettable wildlife viewing—Singita Grumeti has become known as the pinnacle of safari getaways. And with good reason: the experience here is so impeccable, it just might spoil you on safaris for life.

The Safari Where You (Pretend to) Rough It
It’s hard to imagine how Singita Explore’s high-ceilinged, airy tents could have been improved upon, but following a recent refresh, they now include a separate shower in the en suite bathroom and insomnia-proof memory foam mattresses piled with down duvets. Set up in prime game-viewing locations for private parties of up to 12 guests, Singita Explore is as close to nature as you can get without relinquishing any of the luxuries or comforts of a game lodge. Yet it really feels like you’re camping. The chef cooks everything on an open fire, from lemony crayfish tails and prawns to a pot of fall-off-the-bone-tender oxtail, followed by citrusy pancakes smothered in melted chocolate. Everything about the camp is designed for minimal energy consumption and environmental impact, so that it can be packed up and relocated to another scenic site depending on the season, the weather, and the movement of game.

A Wild Ride
Singita Grumeti is one of the few (if not only) camps with its own Equestrian Center, home to 18 horses. Guests of any of the properties can enjoy a day ride out over the Serengeti to explore the plains and — fingers crossed — travel alongside a herd of zebra or elephants, or a pride of lions. Multi-day equestrian safaris, paired with overnights in one of the tented camps, are also available.

A Majestic Moment Captured
The Grumeti is a private wildlife reservation that is only available for safari through Singita Explore. While on an Explore Grumeti safari, I managed to capture this brilliant moment in photo. What a majestic, gorgeous creature!

A Singita Sunset
What a beautiful sunset over the vast plains that surround the Singita Explore camp. This photo was taken from the public area of the camp, and we saw many more stunning views like this one throughout our trip. One incredible thing about Singita Explore is that, while it enables guests to immerse themselves in, and connect with, a raw and beautiful nature, they also remain in a safe and private space (to put it simply).

Just For You
The zero-footprint Singita Explore Mobile Tented Camp is an exclusive-use camp, so the 6 en-suite tents are pitched and configured based on the requirements of your group. The camp sites also vary depending on the season, and are selected to ensure prime views during the migration.

Singita's new mobile tented camp.
Not only did I have the chance to experience the three incredible Singita Grumeti Reserves' lodges (Faru Faru, Sabora Luxury Tented Camp and Sasakwa), but I had the chance to see Singita's new mobile tented camp, Explore, which just opened. Since it's mobile, it can follow the migration, putting you in the middle of the action.

Dining Wild
One of the most memorable moments of my stay with Singita was this spectacular set up. We were traveling in one of the safari carts and our tour guide surprised us by stopping here for lunch. This area was set up in the middle of the wilderness. It was an incredible experience to enjoy lunch on the African plains, with animals happily grazing nearby. The meals were carefully curated for each persons dietary needs and wants, and the way that the service at Singita is so caring and personalized so as to make each experience seamless is just amazing.
