Whoa! There's A Camp More Expensive Than The New Four Seasons Serengeti

The opening of the behemoth 77-room Four Seasons Serengeti dominated the African safari headlines yesterday, with much of the talk surrounding its three restaurants, wine bar, spa, fitness center, and outdoor infinity pool overlooking the wilderness.

The price? Expedia shows rooms for two starting at about $1,200 a night. When you add in the cost of the food and a few select African wines, you're probably looking at around $1,500 a night.

Albeit more quietly, the smaller six-tent Singita Mara River Tent Camp also recently opened for business in the Lamai Triangle, a six-tent East African safari camp run entirely on solar power. The cost of a night there? $1,200 per person. The rate is all-inclusive, but that still leaves a couple paying $2,400 a night. Now that's a lot of cash.

We're not bringing this up to be hard on the place. It is what it is and it doesn't hurt to take a look and wonder.

The privacy in the exclusive and remote hotel is what clearly sets the price point, especially when you compare the experience you'd get at a six-room camp versus one with 77-rooms. Clearly those numbers are worlds apart, and a stay at each wouldn't be close to the same thing. It's like comparing a B&B with a traditional hotel.

Amenities are limited at Singita due to its size, for sure (at least compared to the Four Seasons), but there is something about the fresh and modern look of the pared-down accommodations that makes us happy. The furnishing is by no means sparse and Singita has a reputation for being on the luxurious end of the scale. It's simple, and we think that's part of the appeal, given the natural location and surroundings.

What's on the menu at this all-inclusive? All meals and drinks (including unlimited alcohol), as well as two open Land Rover safaris per day.

Our photo gallery should serve as good eye candy. We wish we could touch this one, but a little peeping is all we'll get to do unless the price comes way down.
