Location

Singita Mara Tented Camp is set within the beautiful Lamai Wedge region to the north of the Serengeti. A rich variety of wildlife is found here, and the weaving Mara River provides an idyllic setting for glimpses of the great migration between late-July and late-October. As the only operating camp in this area for much of the year, you’ll feel as if you have the place all to yourself!

Rooms

Singita Mara Tented Camp contains four one-bedroom tents and two family tents. A private veranda stretches around each tent, and an additional raised decking area provides shaded seating and extensive views over the Mara river.

Inside, you are treated to the stunning décor of interior design company Cécile & Boyd. Using natural materials and a restful colour palette, the rooms are cosily fitted with plush rugs and African wall art that epitomise Singita Mara’s chic bohemian style.

Each tent contains an en-suite bathroom complete with rain shower and a secluded outdoor bathtub with views of the river. A set of weights and yoga mats are also provided.

Communal Areas

The earthy palette and Maasai-inspired furnishings continue into the camp’s communal areas. The elegant design is only the tip of the Singita Mara iceberg, however, as there is much else to see and do here. The communal tents are elevated, like the rooms themselves, on wooden decking. Lounge and dining areas are located upstairs so as to profit from these elevated views, and these extend out into additional al fresco dining areas. Here, you can expect exceptionally high standards of service and food that ranks amongst the best in the Serengeti.

Outside, there is a plunge pool and a fire-pit that makes a great spot for sharing safari stories with fellow guests over pre-dinner drinks.

Activities

The camp’s activities revolve around the twice daily game drives and guided walks. Given Singita Mara’s sustainability ethos, no private vehicles are available – instead, Land Rovers are shared between a maximum of six guests. Uniquely, Singita Mara’s guides offer their own tailor-made game-drives, taking guests across unconventional routes into unchartered game lands.

‘SHOULDER’ DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the long rains. The Great Migration takes place within the southern regions of the Serengeti ecosystem during this period.

Its proximity to the equator means that the Serengeti has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (1,140 to 2,099m/3,740 to 6,886 ft) moderates these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F, the mornings can still be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. During this period the Great Migration starts to make its way north towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem.

'MAIN' DRY SEASON

A more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. During this period the Great Migration will gradually move into the Lamai region of the Serengeti (the northernmost point), as well as the Masai Mara in Kenya.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT' RAINS

Weather in this season can be rather unpredictable, with sunshine interspersed with occasional heavy showers and thunderstorms. Though still considered the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains. November can therefore still be a great time to visit.

The Great Migration will start moving back towards the Southern Plains of the Serengeti from the Masai Mara. Given the distance involved, we tend to see a more fragmented movement of wildlife.
