Wildlife Viewing & Activities

The Serengeti National Park is deservedly one of the most celebrated wildlife reserves in the world. The famous Serengeti Migration, an annual trek of two million animals bisects the reserve, which is home to large resident herds of impala, zebra, topi, eland, and Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelle. Herds of up to 400 buffalo and 450 elephant, concentrations seldom seen elsewhere in Africa, are also encountered here. Large carnivores found in the reserve include lion, hyena, cheetah and leopard. Among the 70 species of mammal on the reserve are aardwolf, jackal, mongoose, serval, caracal, civet, genet, porcupine, pangolin and aardvark. Other year round highlights include beautiful black and white Colobus monkeys and the world’s fastest primate, the rare Patas monkey. Activities include twice daily nature drives, walking safaris, mountain biking and horseback riding. Optional balloon safaris, mountain biking, horseback riding, tennis, archery or star gazing safaris can be arranged.

During the famous Great Migration, the wildebeest can be found dropping their young in the southern Serengeti between December and March, and are typically found attempting to cross the Mara River in the northern Serengeti between July and October. The resident wildlife in the park is found year-round. Other typical sightings may include jackal, warthogs and a number of other mammals, birds and reptiles. Exact sightings will depend on rain patterns and wildlife movements.

Singita Faru Faru Lodge supports the Grumeti Community and Wildlife Conservation Fund’s ambitious rhino relocation initiative. The sub-species of black rhino that inhabits this area was on the verge of extinction after its numbers plummeted from around 1,200 in the 1960s to just 42. Singita Grumeti Reserves has acquired 34 rhinos from South Africa and will, in conjunction with TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks), relocate them to the Serengeti in the next few years, completing the biggest single relocation of black rhino in history. This exciting initiative could not have been carried out if it were not for Singita Faru Faru Lodge, which provided funds to acquire, transport and maintain a safe environment for the rhinos. The Grumeti Fund has also created a formidable anti-poaching unit to patrol the region. A job creation initiative funded in part by Singita Faru Faru Lodge works to provide sustainable employment opportunities to local people to help eliminate illegal hunting.
