Ultimate Private Safari at Singita Serengeti House
The slopes of Sasakwa Hill in Tanzania’s western Serengeti are perfectly positioned for uninterrupted views of the grassy plains below, and the huge numbers of game that traverse this pristine wilderness all year round. Perched in this idyllic location is Singita Serengeti House; an exclusive-use retreat that offers family and friends a taste of sophisticated safari living in one of Africa’s most iconic conservation areas.
This contemporary African home on the Serengeti plains has been recently redesigned and comes with a dedicated chef, host, as well as a guide and private vehicle for games drives as per request. Itineraries, activities and meals are tailor-made and can be adjusted to the interests and needs of our guests, allowing full control over the pace and rhythm of each day. Reserved exclusively for private use, guests have complete freedom to determine the day’s events, and experience the Serengeti on their own terms.
A calming neutral palette and the use of natural fibres strikes the perfect balance between luxury and functionality at the decandet guesthouse. The aptly proportioned Serengeti property paired with the picturesque landscape makes it a magical place in Africa to share with your loved ones. The four large guest suites (two in the main house and one in each of the two adjacent cottages) are filled with natural light and come with their own deluxe bathrooms, outdoor showers and private terraces.
The list of private, on-site facilities includes a clay tennis court, a sweeping veranda with views of the busy waterhole for armchair game viewing, a 25-metre rim-flow lap pool, a glass-fronted gym, a luxurious tented spa, an eat-in kitchen and an expansive front deck for alfresco dining and story-telling around the fire. The refined yet comfortable interiors are complemented by a relaxed, unpretentious ambience and warm-hearted service, adding up to a luxurious home environment in the bush.
The inherent privacy of Singita Serengeti House gives guests a sense of relaxed freedom to enjoy shared experiences in nature. There are 350,000 acres of once desolate grasslands to explore; a critical ecosystem that has been transformed into what is now one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth thanks to 15 years of dedicated conservation work by the Singita Grumeti Fund. Visitors to this private reserve are likely to see a great variety of game throughout the year, including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, bat-eared fox, Maasai giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard. Depending on the time of year and movements of the herds, it is also the ideal location for witnessing the Great Migration. Situated directly in its path and surrounded by a vast wilderness that is home to a thriving population of flora and fauna, Singita Serengeti House is the dream location for a truly unforgettable African safari with your loved ones.
