A Brief History of Conservation Efforts in Singita Grumeti Reserves

May 07, 2010 - Africa,Environment,Singita Grumeti,Sustainable Conservation

Just under 10 years ago Singita Grumeti Reserves was a gorgeous landscape but it was completely devoid of game. Illegal poaching and uncontrolled legal hunting had resulted in the collapse of the wildlife population.

Singita Grumeti Reserves - a vast landscape.

The goal with establishing the Singita Grumeti Fund was to generate profit for use in two areas: wildlife conservation and community development.

From the onset of this initiative everyone involved understood that any wildlife conversation efforts would not succeed without the support of the surrounding communities. To be in a position to be able to provide this support the community required education and development; in other words Singita Grumeti Reserves needed to give the community an understanding of conservation and help the community to create a sustainable alternative to the hunting/poaching of game.

From the day the Singita Grumeti Fund was established and into the foreseeable future all profits, including profit generated through tourism, have been and will be used solely to support the Fund. This means that every guest who stays at Singita Sasakwa Lodge, Singita Faru Faru Lodge or Singita Sabora Tented Camp supports the Fund initiatives.

In just under a decade the Fund team, Singita Grumeti Reserve guests and others have – through their hard work, dedication and donations – helped restore the vast majority of Singita Grumeti Reserves resident wildlife population. Through additional and extensive education efforts and the creation of alternative employment opportunities – for those residing around the Serengeti ecosystem – the groundwork for sustainable conservation, in Singita Grumeti Reserves (and beyond), has been laid.

If you’ve stayed as a guest at Singita Grumeti Reserves, you can be proud of what your stay has helped us achieve.

Singita Grumeti Reserves – Tanzania

April 14, 2010 - Lodges and Camps

Singita Grumeti Reserves consists of two exceptional lodges and one unforgettable camp all situated on a 350 000 acre concession. The area covered by Singita Grumeti Reserves is as large as the Masai Mara but, even so, the number of beds has been limited to 76.

The focus here, as with all Singita properties, is to create the best private bush experience for guests. One way that this is achieved is through the coupling of low-density tourism with high-density game.

Singita Sasakwa Lodge

The two Grumeti Reserves Singita lodges and Singita camp are located along the famous Serengeti and Masai Mara annual migratory passage. To ensure a unique experience each lodge and camp has been thoughtfully positioned in completely different (and therefore unique) terrain.

Singita Sabora Tented Camp

Singita Sasakwa Lodge is elevated above the plains, Singita Sabora Tented Camp is located on the plains – in the heart of the Singita Grumeti Reserves – and Singita Faru Faru Lodge snakes unobtrusively along the Grumeti River.
