Singita Grumeti Faru Faru Lodge, near Serengeti National Park $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Faru Faru is the most whimsical of the Singita Grumeti Reserve's three lodges. The nine glass-fronted villas hug the banks of a riverbed and a grassy watering hole, so you can sit back in a canvas lounge chair or cushy armchair and watch monkeys swinging through the trees and elephants bathing in the cool water below. Should you feel inspired by the surroundings, there are watercolors and sketch pads on a sawhorse work desk—previous guests' work, along with feathers, pressed flowers, and porcupine quills, adorn an artfully curated wall in each guest room. The bedrooms open on to a dressing area and bathroom with a large soaking tub; all of the villas also include open-air rain showers. Faru Faru has a more laid-back, social vibe than its comparatively formal sister properties, Sasakwa and Sabora Tented Camp: Guests here mingle in the open-air living room and sip drinks around the communal fire pit. Even Faru Faru's cuisine—light and Med-inspired—is a welcome change from the too-rich menus served at other lodges.Collen Clark
