The lodge can accommodate up to eight people at a time, with two suites in the main house, and two additional guest suites adjacent to the main house.  There is also an 82 foot (24 meter) lap pool, as well as a tennis court and an archery range.

The interior of the house consists of a neutral palette of colors meant to mimic the Serengeti grass plains, and materials such as natural fibers, rattan, grass matting, polished cement, local stones, and raw timbers are used throughout.  Also interspersed throughout the house are modern pieces of African art, as well as anthropological tribal sculptures, artifacts, and objects.

Each suite has its own bathroom, with outdoor showers and terraces.  There are also private kitchens and resident chef caterers.

Travelers can arrange for a private vehicle and safari guide, as well as guided walks and horseback safaris.  Guests can also take advantage of the Singita Sasakwa Lodge, located less than a mile away, which has a gym, yoga room, and spa.
