The Singita Serengeti House is situated within the magnificent 350 000 acre Singita Grumeti Reserves, in Northern Tanzania. The Grumeti concession was created to preserve the vast biodiversity of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem, and protect the path of the annual wildebeest migration. Singita now manages this concession, with the objective of ensuring long-term sustainability through low-impact tourism.
Serengeti House is an exclusive-use retreat seated on the slopes of Sasakwa Hill. This location affords guests ideal views of the watering hole just below the house, and panoramic vistas of the expansive Serengeti Plains. The house offers guests privacy and flexibility, and ensures friends and families a totally relaxed and carefree stay. The superb staff will tailor make itineraries, meals, and activities in accordance with the needs of the group.
The stone and wood Serengeti House accommodates a maximum of eight guests in four sumptuous en-suite bedrooms, each with an additional outdoor shower and private terrace. Two of the suites are in the main house, while two flank the main house and are connected by pathways from the central pool deck. The purpose built safari house boasts exquisitely crafted interiors.
The Serengeti is renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, when two million ungulates move across the plains in search of grazing and water. The predators closely follow the wildebeest and zebra, looking for easy pickings.
The best time to see the Great Annual Migration is February through to March, when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. Not only will guests enjoy seeing baby animals, but the predators are at the highest number too. The migration usually moves out of the Serengeti area by the end of June and does not return until December.
However, the reserve teems with wildlife throughout the year. This includes impalas, Masai giraffe, warthogs, topi, gazelles, hyenas, lions, leopards, cheetahs and caracals. Guests are treated to frequent sightings of the Big Five during their stay, as well as the rare Colobus monkey. Bat-eared fox and serval are among regularly seen smaller carnivores.
Bird life is prolific, with over 450 species recorded in the region ranging from the huge ostrich to the little spotted woodpecker. Specialties include the Red-capped robin chat and Black-headed gonolek. Other notable sightings include Kori bustards, Secretary birds, Marabou storks, lovebirds, Martial eagles and a variety of vulture species.
