The standard-bearer for over-the-top safaris, Singita is once again redefining in-the-bush experiences with the debut of its first camp in the unspoiled northwestern corner of the Serengeti. Six sunrise-facing tents, designed by renowned Cape Town–based Cécile & Boyd’s, showcase local accents, such as decorative baskets reminiscent of grain-sorting containers and throw blankets with Masai-inspired patterns. Days begin with predawn game drives and end with sundowners on the plains. We could have happily lingered all day on our private patio, where a cup of English Breakfast and a pair of high-powered binoculars aided our wildlife viewing over the Mara River. Since the property runs entirely on solar energy, guests can rest assured that the only footprints left behind will be those of elephants, hippos—and, if you go in late summer—thousands of migrating wildebeests.

Room to Book:

Looking for privacy? Tents one and six are located furthest from the main camp. If you’re traveling with family, request tents three or four, the largest of the bunch.

Insider Tip:

In the main tent, keep an eye on the crocs basking in nearby sandbanks while dining on healthy and refreshing dishes from the kitchen. Order the chilled watermelon soup with pepper grossini or duck with roasted plums.
