Singita Serengeti House, Tanzania - A private luxury retreat for family & friends

Serengeti House is designed for exclusive use and there’s a sense of relaxed freedom for families or friends travelling together and looking to enjoy exceptional shared experiences. New, casual, living spaces include an eat-in kitchen and media room, a full gym adjacent to the extended outdoor sala, and a brand new tented spa suite at the updated tennis pavilion.

Dedicated to environmentally conscious hospitality, sustainable conservation and the empowerment of local communities, Singita, meaning “place of miracles,” was founded in 1993 with a single lodge.

Serengeti House is refined yet luxuriously comfortable yet this modern African home on the slopes of Sasakwa Hill in Tanzania, offers uninterrupted views across the Serengeti and offers you the ultimate privacy and space as you experience the uniqueness of Africa.

Where is Serengeti House located and how do I get there?

Grumeti Air makes it quicker, easier and safer than ever before, offering you a seamless connection to one of Africa’s most iconic wilderness areas. In addition, the airline allows the Singita experience to commence as soon as your journey across Tanzania begins, putting you in the hands of their team from start to finish.

What sort of accommodation is available?

Up to 8 guests can feel at home at Serengeti House. There are four boldly proportioned guest suites with serene bathrooms, outdoor showers and private terraces. Casual living areas include an eat-in family kitchen, media room, a full fitness centre, a tented spa suite and a clay tennis pavilion.

A 25 metre rim-flow lap pool, outdoor dining decks and fire pits provide the perfect spots from which to view daily wildlife activity at the nearby waterhole. Private staff, including a resident chef, Field Guide and dedicated vehicle ensure that there is an easy, flexible rhythm to each itinerary with tailor-made activities and meals.

When is the best time to visit Serengeti House?

East Africa is equatorial so the climate is fairly constant and it is a year-round destination. Tanzania has a light rain season from November to March. This period is known as the ‘short rains’, often no more than a quick downpour each day, followed by clear sunshine.

From December to March the weather becomes increasingly warmer with the ‘long rains’ occurring between April and May.

What should I pack and bring with me?

Your safari suitcase, packed properly, will ensure that you have everything you need for the ultimate African bush experience. Cotton clothing in neutral colours is recommended for all game drives and bush walks. It is best to avoid white clothing and dark colours for bush activities, as they tend to attract certain bugs. Formal wear is not required.

We recommend packing the following:

  • Comfortable walking shoes/track shoes/hiking boots for walks; and sandals to wear around the villa.
  • Swimming costume/bathing suits, sun block, sun hat, sunglasses, lip balm, mosquito repellent (Lip balm and mosquito repellent is provided for you, but you are welcome to bring along your favourite brand).
  • Camera and video camera, binoculars, spare memory cards and charging equipment. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (also known as drones) is strictly prohibited at Singita.
  • Please note that in the event of rain during a game drive, waterproof ponchos will be provided for your comfort.
  • The villa is located in a remote area and therefore you should remember to bring an extra pair of spectacles (if required), contact lenses and an extra set of contact lenses (if required) as well as a sufficient supply of any prescription medication.
