The Grumeti is filled to the brim with many different mammals, including the more curious-looking species too, like Topi. There is also a high chance of meeting those feline favourites (cheetah, lion and leopard), especially being in the company of Singitas's all-star team of field guides. There isn't an insect, bird, or mammal in the Serengeti that they don't know about!
The Singita Grumeti Fund anti-poaching team is made up of 120 dedicated scouts who patrol the 350,000-acre private concession. During your stay at Singita Faru Faru, you can walk up to visit observation post 7 (OP7) situated atop a hill. Aside from the incredible sunset views, you'll meet the scouts and learn how they live, work and survey the area for any unusual activity.
On daily safari walks, and you'll gain a whole new perspective of the reserve and this is your chance not only to learn about tracking animals using scat and spoor but also to appreciate the importance of smaller creatures that fulfil essential roles in the local ecosystem. A minimum age of 15 years is required for this activity, but participation is at the discretion of the guide. If you're not up for walking, but you could picture yourself galloping on horseback safari across the Serengeti, we can arrange for that as well.
Singita Faru Faru welcomes children of all ages, but what's more, is that they also offer a Mini Rangers' Course. Under the watchful eye of the staff and rangers, little safari-goers will learn how to track animals along with bush survival techniques. There's plenty more included, such as flower-pressing, baking, tree and bird-spotting, and even a special certificate for completing the course. It's hard to tell who loves this element of this luxurious family friendly Tanzania safari lodge more, the kids or the parents.
