A Makeover for the Singita Serengeti House in Tanzania

(Singita Serengeti House)

Singita—the renowned conservation company with 12 lodges and camps across South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe—opened a private retreat in the 350,000-acre Grumeti Reserve in the Serengeti in 2013. As Luxury Travel Advisor reported at the time, Singita Serengeti House was “Singita’s response to a growing demand from VIP travelers looking for bespoke experiences.” Situated on Sasakwa Hill with sweeping views over the plains, the retreat was designed for the exclusive use of a small group (of friends or family) with all activities, meals and itineraries customized for each guest. Private staff includes a full-time guide and vehicle. 

In recent news from Tanzania: Singita has announced a complete redesign of the Singita Serengeti House. Recently reopened following the makeover, the retreat is showing off new-look living spaces, including an eat-in kitchen and media room, plus a full gym and a new tented spa suite at the tennis pavilion, which was also updated. 

This is a prime spot for wildlife viewing, as this iconic African conservation area promises impressive game sightings throughout the year. And guests can ogle the wildlife directly from the 25-meter swimming pool, outdoor dining decks, and fire pits. To quote Singita about the retreat, “there’s a sense of relaxed freedom for families or friends to enjoy shared experiences in nature here.”
