Mara River Tented Camp (Lamai Triangle, Serengeti National Park)
Singita Mara River Tented Camp is the epitome of
sustainable tourism and consciously seeks to eliminate the
unnecessary use of energy and non-biodegradable materials.
In keeping with this philosophy, the camp operates
“off-the-grid” and relies entirely on a custom designed
solar system for its power and the use of recycled and
natural materials wherever possible.
Inside the camp, bohemian chic sets the tone for cool
relaxation, where spun natural fabrics, canvas, stone and
raw leather blend with Maasai primary colours and elegant
art pieces by young African designers and craftsmen. The
functional East African design encourages guests to embrace
the outdoors and connect with nature.
Singita Mara River Tented Camp is located on the northern
banks of the world-renowned Mara River in the Lamai
triangle. Lamai, an area celebrated for its annual
wildebeest migration crossings, covers 98,000 acres of the
northern-most tip of the Serengeti National Park in
Tanzania. Wildebeest cross the Mara River at various points
and the camp’s unique location provides spectacular
opportunities to view the crossings.
This area boasts one of
the highest year-round concentrations of wildlife in the
Serengeti National Park, thanks to its distinctive soil
composition. This includes resident plains game, big cats
and elephant, in addition to enormous populations of
crocodile and hippo in the Mara River.
