The Striking New Look of Singita Faru Faru Lodge

The bold yet softly elegant combination of Scandinavian simplicity expressed through traditional African craft underpins the striking update of Singita Faru Faru Lodge, which reopens in the Serengeti next week. Danish interior design was the starting point for the exquisite reimagining of the lodge which fuses clean, streamlined spaces with warm, tactile elements and honours its astounding wilderness setting.

While minimalism highlights the architecture of a space through industrialism and functionality, the Danish aesthetic brings ease and comfort to a similar sense of simplicity. This approach is less about the space itself and more about how one lives in it, using natural textures and materials to create rich, cosy layers throughout the lodge. The work of local artisans who have handcrafted furniture, fittings and objects in every room provides the perfect complement to this restrained design philosophy.

Singita Faru Faru Lodge is set in western Tanzania, where guests have exclusive access to 350,000 acres of the Serengeti Mara ecosystem; the renowned migratory route traversed by millions of wildebeest every year which is protected by the dedicated conservation team at the Grumeti Fund. The lodge is built on a gently sloping hill with spectacular views of this iconic landscape and diverse wildlife populations which thrive here all year round. The extraordinary change to Faru Faru’s architecture and design, and its incredible wilderness location, make the lodge an unmissable stop on any bucket-list Serengeti safari.
