New private house from Singita
Situated on the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park, Singita Serengeti House will offer guests exclusive use accommodation and access to 350,000 acres of private land.
The house is sat on the lower slopes of Sasakwa Hill facing the Serengeti plains and a nearby watering hole and has been created due to increasing demand from travellers, especially families, for privacy.
The property opens on June? 15 and will accommodate 8 guests in two suites in the main house and two garden suites all featuring private outdoor showers and terraces.
The main house has large dining and lounge areas, decked areas with day beds, a 25m swimming pool and a private tennis court.
“Simple classic furniture combining bleached raw woods and a palette of white, ebony and ivory delivers a modern yet quintessentially African feel,” apparently.
The designers, Cecile & Boyd’s, used materials such as leathered black Zimbabwe granite in the bathrooms, textured paints and wallpapers, sandblasted timbers, pigmented cement and fireplaces clad with rough local stone.
And as is the Singita way the environment was key in terms of water efficiency, energy consumption and materials.
Guests get a private safari guide and vehicle, dedicated staff including a private chef, a selection of the finest wines.
Exclusive use stays start from US$7500 per night for 4 guests including all meals, drinks and activities.
