Singita Serengeti Grumeti Game Reserves, Northern Tanzania Destinations Featured

Singita Serengeti Cheetah 

 Singita Serengeti Grumeti Game Reserve, situated adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, is an integral part of the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem and the home of the Great Migration. The reserve was created by the Tanzanian government in 1994 in order to protect the path of the annual wildebeest migration and the indigenous biodiversity of this vast and important ecosystem.

Little known, expertly run, and guaranteeing - by its presence - the migration's movement from south to west, Singita Serengeti (formerly known as The Grumeti Reserves) is a collection of three old hunting concessions, which, when grouped together as one reserve, is equal in size to the Maasai Mara. It is the result of a successful partnership between Paul Tudor Jones (who started the Grumeti Reserves), Luke Bailes (who co-owns the Singita collection in South Africa) and a considerable team on the reserve.

Containing just three excellent camps and the newly opened Serengeti house (a total of forty-six beds in the whole reserve), its emphasis is firmly on the wild, and, consequently, the resident game population is booming. Unaffected by great convoys of minibuses steaming through the bush, and fortunate enough to contain ten vital miles of Grumeti river frontage, Singita Serengeti is fast becoming the place to watch the spectacular migration crossings between the months of May and July.

As well as the huge numbers of migrating animals, Singita is home to healthy resident populations of impala, zebra, eland, Thompson's gazelle, dik dik, reedbuck, waterbuck, lion, cheetahs, leopards, hartebeest, buffalo and elephant. Black and white colobus monkey is common, while the rare and extremely quick Patas monkey can be found in the relatively sparse woodlands. Superb migration viewing in June and July, but excellent for much of the year for resident game, Singita Serengeti prides itself on both its wildlife and its accommodation, both of which are among the best in Africa.

The Singita Sabora Tented Camp is accessorized with antique mahogany chests, worn-leather folding chairs, and thick Persian rugs.

The Singita Faru Faru, with six eight suites and one two-bedroom villa overlooking the Grumeti River channels, a Swahili beach resort; a swimming pool curves in front of an open-air lounge, where guests sip sunset cocktails as elephants gather at the watering hole below.

The reserve’s flagship property is Sasakwa Lodge, an East African ranch house set on a hill with panoramic views of the Serengeti plains. The lodge’s wood-paneled libraries have an English country club feel, and there are nine cottage residences and one private retreat, each with a garden and plunge pool. Also at Sasakwa are tennis courts, a spa, and a yoga center to occupy guests between twice-daily game drives, where sightings include wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles.

The recently opened, Singita Explore, provides travelers access to the 340,000-acre concession in a mobile luxury tented camp.
