  • Faru Faru Lodge

    $ 2,650 Per adult per night
    Faru Faru Lodge embodies a fresh take on African bush appeal and ushers in a new era of luxury wilderness safaris, set within Singita’s 350,000-acre private and exlusive-use reserve in northern Tanzania. Singita's relaxed approach to luxury, forms a golden thread throughout this easy-going lodge in the heart of the Serengeti. Its contemporary African décor and design and close-up views of a busy waterhole alongside the Grumeti River invite continuous connections with nature, while vast outdoor decks, an interactive kitchen and multiple airy enclaves for dining and drinks add personality to every culinary moment. The café-style bar at the heart of the lodge hums with a subtle sparkle that spills over to the pool area and firepit, making for magical evenings under starlit skies. Consider combining your stay at Faru Faru Lodge with one of the other Singita Grumeti properties during your stay or heading to the coast for some rest and relaxation.
  • Serian Adventure Flycamping

    $ 1,090 Per adult per night
    First off, a disclaimer: flycamping has nothing to do with flying. Rather, it takes its name from sleeping in the bush under nothing more than a flysheet, as was the camping tradition before the luxury‐laden era of ‘glamping’ arrived. The premise is that you spend the days walking, and the nights sleeping out in light weight tents, in a makeshift camp that moves each day – the end of each day’s walk brings you to your new site for the night.
  • Serian Serengeti Mobile Kusini

    $ 1,275 Per adult per night
    Serian Serengeti Kusini is a mobile camp created to make the most of the spectacular wildebeest migration. From December to March, it is perched on the edge of the short grass plains, a perfect vantage point over the vast space where the Wildebeest herds amass to give birth to their young. Nestled in a well-watered wood, ancient trails weave the migration right through camp.
  • The Nest at Serian

    $ 1,090 Per adult per night
    What does it take to find the perfect tree house? Located on the western side of the Mara River and only open to access by foot – thick with trees, valleys, rocks – we kept circling back to one particular spot: fifty metres from the water looking along a stretch that is filled by a raucous pod of hippo. A line of Warburgia stretches along a little draw, and a single tree at the end shows scars: a scratching post for a resident male leopard. The salt lick luring the impala leads to a hippo funnel and their small sandy beach.
  • Ngare Serian

    $ 1,275 Per adult per night
    Ngare translates to ‘by the river’ in the Masai language, and the idea behind this snug little camp was to transport the serenity of the original Serian camp to the water’s edge. Hugging the banks of the Mara, Ngare Serian is cosy and intimate. It can only be reached on foot, over a narrow rope bridge – and in a way the crossover is symbolic: a call to step out of touch and out of time, and give yourself over to the natural charm of the place. There’s something special about being on the water’s edge – the water slipping and sloshing over the stones sets a soothing soundtrack, but at the same time its energy and movement lends lightness and life – green shoots, verdant growth and glossy rocks that metamorphose into hippos.
  • Serian Nkorombo

    $ 1,070 Per adult per night
    Nkorombo is Serian’s tented mobile camp, set on a private riverside site in the Masai Mara Reserve. This snug little setup is chock-full of character with a view over the rushing Mara River, bursting with laughing hippo and languorous crocodile. Much like at Serian and Ngare Serian, life at Nkorombo is low-key and tranquil. Nestled among a stand of wild olive and orange croton, the camp is right next to a lively salt lick that regularly features black rhino, and lion and leopard on the lookout for kill. There is an abundance of prey in this area, and it’s the perfect spot for spectacular game viewing.
  • Serian The Original

    $ 1,070 Per adult per night
    “Alex Walker's Serian” is a collection of intimate East African bush camps; that allow you to flee the bustle of contemporary life and experience a blend of untamed Africa in traditional tented splendor! Serian - The Original, was the first of Alex’s camps, and it perfectly captures the essence of its name: meaning ‘peaceful, calm, serene’ in the Masai language, it was designed to be a retreat from the bustle of contemporary life, and a chance to experience untamed Africa in traditional tented splendour. It lies in the private Mara North Conservancy, and the beauty of this location is that only 10 other camps have access to it – so the feeling of having your own personal piece of Africa is a luxury that we have in spades.
  • Serian Serengeti South Camp

    $ 1,275 Per adult per night
    Serian’s Serengeti is a mobile camp and from mid-December to May, it's set up on the southernmost extreme of the Serengeti’s short grass plains: prime position to spectate the wildebeest birthing season. Dramatic savannah storms sweep in nourishment and new life, and an innate primordial urge pulls the wildebeest to the site of their origins to reproduce. The plains literally come to life for the birthing season. Millions of gnus and zebra dominate the landscape, looking for the fresh green grass that follows the first rains – and to give birth to their young. Serian Serengeti South Camp is located close to the Laetoli footprints an archeological site of some renown. This area is positioned ideally to witness the remarkable Wildebeest Migration birthing season. "Serian" becomes the base from which you have exclusive access to hundreds of thousands of acres of acacia clad woodland filled with huge abundance of wildlife.
  • Rubondo Island Camp

    $ 708 Per adult per night
    Rubondo Island Camp is the only lodge on Rubondo Island, the largest island national park in Africa. Tropical forests provide a protected habitat for wildlife that includes sitatunga, elephant, giraffe, 200 species of birds, and wild chimpanzees. The waters of Lake Victoria also offer spectacular fishing for Nile perch. Meals are served alfresco at the main lodge area, with the lapping waves of Lake Victoria marking the passing hours of island life. Spend the afternoon relaxing in a hammock with binoculars and a bird guide or cool off in the swimming pool. When the sun dips below the horizon, watch the hippo emerge from the water to graze on the fringes of camp. The 8 luxury chalets are nestled under the huge trees just 60 meters for the sandy lake shore.
  • Encounter Mara

    $ 706 Per adult per night
    Encounter Mara is built to the highest eco-standards and in traditional safari-style, hidden under a magnificent canopy of acacia trees. It blends seamlessly with the bush, so there is an excellent chance you’ll encounter giraffe or zebra strolling through camp. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the canvas dining tent in the centre of camp, against a backdrop of the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. The cosy lounge area is simply furnished in a simple yet contemporary style that allows the views of the Maasai Mara to take centre stage. With the nearby salt lick attracting regular visitors from plains game to big cats, you would be excused for spending the entire day in camp, watching the wildlife come to you.
  • Lemala Nanyukie

    $ 1,117 Per adult per night
    Lemala Nanyukie opened in October 2018 in the fabulous Eastern Serengeti. Meaning ‘endless plains’ in the Maasai language, the Serengeti is one of the world's most celebrated wilderness areas. Lemala Nanyukie is located a 45-minute drive east of the Seronera Airstrip in the park’s central region with outstanding views across the ‘endless plains’. The camp sits on a grassy savanna dotted with rocky kopjes and shaded by ancient giant acacia trees.​ This area of the Serengeti is crossed by the annual wildebeest migration. It also has high-density game-viewing at all times and is well-known for its large concentration of cats. Lemala Nanyukie will be open year-round, and safari activities like game drives and walks will be accompanied by knowledgeable and experienced guides.
  • Lemala Ngorongoro Camp

    $ 752 Per adult per night
    Lemala Ngorongoro is set in an ancient acacia forest close to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. As it is located next to the quiet Lemala crater access road on the north east side, a key advantage of staying at Lemala Ngorongoro is the quick and easy drive down on to the crater floor in the morning. Lemala guests usually have an hour's head start over others descending via the busier Seneto crater access road on the western rim. Game drives from camp may start as early as 6.15am and guests can be down among Ngorongoro’s abundant wildlife on the floor within 10-15 minutes - crucial for photographers who demand the best light conditions. Escorted walks are also available into the forest and along the crater rim with an armed ranger and Maasai guide.
