Tripadvisor comments Singita Faru Faru Lodge
An unforgettable honeymoon to say the least. Words and pictures cannot do justice to what you experience at Singita Faru Faru Lodge. From accommodation to service, Faru Faru delivers above and beyond in all aspects. What made a huge impression is that Singita emphasizes community, conservation, and sustainability. Although these are popular terms that many companies throw around, you immediately witness firsthand that Singita Faru Faru is genuinely built on these core principles. As the breathtaking landscapes, exhilarating wildlife, and luxurious accommodations are a given, what truly sets Faru Faru apart and makes them truly an experience of a lifetime are the people. Anicet Philip, our personal guide for the five days, was the cornerstone of our trip.

What can I say about Faru Faru that hasn't already been said. This hotel goes above and beyond and every detail is meticulously thought out. The Grumeti Reserve is a very special place in that it is a private reserve therefore it is not overrun by Safari Vehicles and people. You truly feel like you are alone. Faru Faru is perched above a few watering holes so the wildlife viewing right from your room and the hotel grounds is spectacular. Right after we arrived we were welcomed by a herd of about 50 elephant, wildebeest, zebra and baboons. It was breathtaking.
