Singita: exclusive privately guided conservation safari
A unique 'behind the scenes' with Singita's stamp of excellence
This year, Singita will launch an inimitable opportunity to experience a Serengeti safari whilst also contributing to conservation in Africa. Joining one of only two exclusive conservation-focused safaris you will become a part of the incredible work being done to preserve and protect this 1400 sq km private concession whilst also enjoying Singita’s signature excellence in hospitality.
The safaris will be privately guided by the Executive Director of the Singita Grumeti Fund, Stephen Cunliffe. Stephen is infinitely knowledgeable being a specialist nature guide, conservationist, environmental consultant and a widely published photojournalist. He’s also a charming host and engaging company.
Spending six nights in Singita Grumeti, situated adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, you will combine stays at both Singita Sasakwa Lodge and Sabora Tented Camp, taking you on a journey through the projects that are the life force behind Singita’s conservation success. These include the Grumeti Black Rhino Project, Anti-Poaching Units including an upcoming Canine Unit, an Environmental Education Centre set up to educate local communities in the value of the land’s wildlife resources and the Singita Grumeti Fund of Small Enterprise Development, aimed at boosting the local economy. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet and spend time with other experts and those at the ‘coal face’ including Conservation Manager Matt Perry, Community Outreach Coordinator Richard Ndaskoi and David Mwakipesile – Head of Intelligence.
There are just two departures set for this unique journey - 18 February and 14 November 2017 – and each will accommodate just six guests.
This exclusive opportunity to experience the issues, struggles and successes of Tanzania’s most highly regarded conservation efforts is a true privilege and with Singita’s signature stamp of excellence, it promises a truly exceptional, utterly unique safari experience.
Anti-poaching Unit and The Black Rhino Project
The Singita Grumeti Fund is working with Tanzanian authorities on a reintroduction programme to boost numbers of black rhino in the Serengeti. Along with this, a team of 120 game scouts undergo an intensive nine-day selection process, with successful candidates enrolled on a month-long, field-ranger course that teaches them all the basic skills they will require.
Part of your donation will help train, equip, feed and place two anti-poaching scouts in the field for a year, or assist in the funding of the Black Rhino Project.
Environmental Education Centre
Your donation will cover all costs associated with the Environmental Education Center for six weeks. This directly translates to 72 students and six teachers being exposed to an intensive weeklong residential course at the Singita Grumeti Fund’s flagship Environmental Education Centre with attendees going onto relay what they have learnt to their family and local communities.
