Perfectly secluded in the far northern reaches of the lamai triangle, the Singita Mara tented river camp will offer you a sensational base in the only year round game rich area of the Serengeti. The six luxury tent suites designed by award winning South African interior designer Cecile & Boyd’s are the ultimate in bohemian chic.
Nestled on the banks of the Mara River in the famed Lamai triangle, you can watch the annual wildebeest migration cross the river right in front of your eyes. Only a 45 minute game drive from the Serengeti Lamai airstrip, before you know it you will be ready for poolside lounging and the chance to get up close to the Serengeti’s incredible animals.
The 6 tented suites really do showcase contemporary African design at its best. Massive beds and sumptuous sofas draped in natural fabrics offer a sublime retreat at the end of a long day’s safari. What better way to simultaneously unwind and scan the Hippos and crocodiles in the Mara River below than from your private outdoor bathtub. All tents have ensuite restrooms and the camp also offers complimentary Wi-Fi – although we doubt you will give this a second thought once you have settled in.
Why we like it?
The sheer attention to detail and emphasis on sustainable tourism and materials make the Singita Mara a truly unique safari experience. Daily game drives are the main activity here and with the plethora of wildlife here, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Although taking a dip in the camp’s plunge pool is a great way to leave you refreshed for another day or to simply admire the breath taking views of the Serengeti.
