Singita Mara River Tented Camp, Tanzania

You’ll appreciate this new approach to going on safari. It’s a way of seeing the animals, up close, without doing away with your creature comforts.

If a safari is your idea of the perfect, tailor-made vacation, you should make tracks for the Singita Mara River Camp in the Serengeti National Park.

The Singita Mara is a new camp, on the banks of the wildlife-rich Mara river - and it’s a fresh concept in safari vacations. With only 16 visitor-beds for over 98,000 acres of nature reserve, it offers pared-down visitor numbers. So you receive the attention you deserve, and you meet the creatures you want to observe without putting undue pressure on the environment.

So be prepared to wake up in a luxurious, netted bed with views of the plains on all sides of you, through rolled-up tent walls. And be ready to meet hippos, elephants, crocs and big cats, giraffe, wildebeest…
