Singita History – Part 1

March 31, 2010 - History

The significant history and heritage of Singita can be traced back over 80 years.

In 1925 James Fawcett Bailes purchased a tract of pristine, untouched land in an area in South Africa known as the Lowveld. Throughout his life he dreamt of preserving this land and creating a haven for its exceptional wildlife.
