The Serengeti plains teem with wildlife, including vast herds of plains game, a plethora of predators and the spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration. Through the Singita Grumeti Fund, Singita is the proud custodian of 350,000 acres of this unique ecosystem. Ensuring the continued protection of Singita’s concessions, situated primarily in the critical western Corridor of the plains, is essential to the future sustainability of the ancient pilgrimage that defines these lands.
However, when the Singita Grumeti Fund took over the management of this area in 2003, a combination of uncontrolled illegal hunting, rampant wildfires and spreading stands of invasive alien vegetation had severely depressed resident wildlife numbers.
Through the application of a holistic adaptive management approach that takes into account the complex interactions between the various elements of this savannah system, Singita’s team has largely restored its natural function. The result is a magnificent wilderness experience that captivates our guests and empowers our tourism model to support the ongoing conservation work and community engagement.
