The last of the entries in the ‘Safari Brothers at Explore’ series. Now James and Marlon are back at their postings at Singita’s private concession within South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park.
Ending the day under the stars at Singita Explore and tucking up under canvas was memorable in so many respects. Written by James Suter.
Each evening at around 07h30 pm Ed, our guide, started heading back to the Explore camp. As we drew closer we could see tiny lights in the middle of the endless darkness. We were welcomed with a refreshing towel and cocktail and headed toward the campfire to share all the stories of the day. The warmth and attention of the staff each night made us feel as if we were amongst friends sharing adventures and laughing at some of the days’ events.
Watching the moon rise in the vast expanse of sky above us was a sight to behold. Nights out on the Serengeti plains in Tanzania were alive with fascinating sounds and the smell of the camp barbeque tempted our appetites.
For the past years Singita has been observing how travellers have evolved. We are recognizing the ever-increasing demand from discerning travellers for private travel, the utmost exclusivity of a destination, and the ability to access nature in a close and meaningful manner.
With this in mind, Singita is launching a transformational new travel concept – Singita Explore, a return to the very essence of safari. This exclusive mobile camp is designed for minimal environmental impact, treading lightly on 340,000 acres of private reserve, offering en-suite canvas hideaways that restore true adventure to days in the wilderness.
The camp will be sold on an exclusive use basis only, available year round, and this back-to-basics mobile camp only operates within Singita Grumeti Reserves. Comprising 6 tents and 2 mess tents the camp will be placed in remote parts of the reserve, guaranteeing closeness to wildlife and untouched landscapes, and is hosted by a private guide, camp host, chef and camp staff.
Singita launches Singita Explore 1 June 2011. For information about the introductory promotional offer, contact our Reservations department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
