There is currently an undeniable momentum around the support of women and girls’ empowerment initiatives. It’s a long-awaited recognition that female empowerment is an absolute imperative for the advancement of society as a whole.

The Grumeti Fund is committed to women and girls empowerment programmes in the Serengeti, particularly aimed at providing opportunities for women in conservation, local commerce and community leadership. In line with this commitment, there is excitement about the latest Safari with a Purpose – the Serengeti Girls Run, taking place in October 2018. This is a once-in-a-lifetime safari adventure, where up to 20 women from around the world will have the opportunity to cover a distance of anywhere between 30 and 90 kilometers in three consecutive days across the iconic Serengeti grasslands. Whether on foot or in a support vehicle, this group will experience the soul of the Serengeti wilderness in a truly unique way; up close and personal. Day one of the run will include a fun run with local women and girls, where guests will have the opportunity to engage with the women who will ultimately benefit from this fundraising event.

Singita Explore

Adding to the bucket list appeal of this experience, guests will spend five nights at Singita Explore, a beautifully appointed, luxury tented safari camp set in a prime location for unwinding in the wilderness. Here, guests will enjoy exceptional food cooked by a private chef and paired with the finest wines from the Singita collection. Evening game drives and time around the campfire allow for storytelling from the day’s activities.

While this experience holds the promise of unrivaled adventure for participants, it is grounded in a purpose that, over time, will have a profound impact on the lives of girls and women and in turn the local communities and broader society. Participants will make a financial contribution of $15 000 as a tax-deductible donation to the Grumeti Fund, which will go directly towards creating the next generation of female leaders in conservation. Specifically, this is done through funding secondary school attendance, vocational studies, university scholarships, life skills and enterprise development training, environmental education and internships.

Register now for the adventure of a lifetime and help to change the face of conservation by creating significant opportunities for girls to become influential leaders in their communities.

This special safari takes place between 19 to 24 October 2018. Reduced accommodation rates are from $1,413 per person sharing (two participants per tent) for 5 nights including all wildlife fees and tourism development levies. This rate excludes all flights, transfers and the donation amount of $15,000 per person in aid of girl and women empowerment projects in the Serengeti.
