Singita Mara River Tented Camp

Singita Mara River Tented Camp is set on the banks of the world-renowned Mara River in the Lamai Triangle, the northern most tip of the Serengeti National Park, and is the perfect choice for couples or families looking for an authentic, yet luxurious safari experience. Committed to environmental sustainability, this small and exclusive permanent tented camp relies entirely on a custom-designed solar power system and is intended to complement its remote location. All camp structures are raised about a metre above ground to allow cool breezes flow through, and are orientated to maximise the superlative views of the Mara River.

The Lamai Triangle is famous for its annual wildebeest migration crossings and the camps location provides excellent opportunities to view the crossings. As the only area of the Serengeti to remain truly game-rich all year round, guests will experience regular sightings of resident plains game, buffalo, elephants, big cats, crocodiles and hippos in the Mara River area.

The Experience

Not only does the Singita Mara River Tented Camp offer the most exclusive eco-luxury accommodation in the Lamai, it also provides highly knowledgeable guides to lead game drives in one of the most active wildlife areas in the Serengeti National Park. Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers offer guests the opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals; including resident plains game, big cats and elephants in the rocky kopjes, as well as hippos and crocodiles in the Mara River. Afternoon drives conclude with a spot-lit seeking nocturnal animals; both offering an incredible experience in addition to the daily game drives. In addition to this, massage treatments are available as well as wine tasting.
