Singita's Two New Safari Properties

Singita Grumeti Reserve

The name Singita became synonymous with East African luxury safaris when the ecotourism company took over three properties in Tanzania back in 2006. Now its two latest arrivals push the wilderness-immersion envelope even further. Set in Serengeti National Park’s northernmost tip, close to the Kenyan frontier, the intimate Singita Mara River Tented Camp (pictured) has six canvas tents—complete with carved-wood Shona lamps, retro travel chests, and beds draped in hand-spun natural fabrics—where guests can unwind after wildlife drives and bush walks. Up to eight safari-goers can also rent the new Serengeti House, near the flagship lodge on towering Sasakwa Hill. Inside, you’ll find contemporary African arts and crafts (leather thong chandeliers inspired by Masai skirts; papier-mâché animal-head trophies), while the exterior has a subtler, beach-chic look. The 82-foot-long infinity lap pool is the ideal setting for sundowners while a herd of wildebeests drinks from a watering hole below. After a day exploring, why not let the animals come to you? All-inclusive. $$$$$
