Camp Opening: Singita Mara River Tented Camp

December 5, 2012  By: Gretchen

A new Singita camp opening is always welcome news around here and we are pleased to announce the unveiling of Singita Mara River Tented Camp!  The camp is situated in the Lamai Triangle on a bend on the northern side of the Mara River, providing perfect views of the wildebeest river crossings during the annual migration and also of resident game year round.  We also love their commitment to sustainability, which underpins every aspect of Singita’s new camp.  It is built from natural and recycled materials and is 100% “off the grid” relying entirely on a custom-designed solar power array.

The camp is a contemporary take on the classic East African safari and offers a pared-down approach to the quintessential Singita safari without compromising on any creature comforts.  With 16 beds surrounded by 98,000 acres of untouched wilderness, each tent offers priceless solitude, peace and sheer luxury of space.  Conceptualised and designed by Cécile & Boyd’s, the attention to detail in the camp is breathtaking – even unexpected.  Original work from talented young African designers and craftspeople celebrates the best of contemporary African design and inspires guests to see local creativity in a fresh, new way.

There are special rates for children under 18 and we are currently taking reservations for 2013.  Call us to add Singita’s Mara River Tented Camp into your Tanzania itinerary.
