Land Use & Wildlife
Protecting and restoring biodiversity and creating new natural habitats through good land use and integration into the built environment.
Managing Land and Nature is such a significant aspect of Singita’s operations, this principle is separately managed under the umbrella of Biodiversity by our environmental teams.
Singita is committed to restoring, protecting and enhancing the biodiversity of close to 1 million acres of land across four African countries. The aim is to secure the continued ecological integrity, wildlife management and ecosystem restoration of some of Africa’s most diverse wilderness areas and iconic wildlife – from the vast savannas of the Serengeti to the rainforests of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park; and from the lowveld region of southeastern Zimbabwe to South Africa’s pristine bushveld.

Bioregional – One Planet Living
Singita’s sustainability partner – Bioregional – champions better and more sustainable ways to live, work and do business. Founded as a charity and social enterprise, the London-based consultancy reviews and advises us on our sustainability journey and has helped to ensure that Singita is recognised as a global leader.
Bioregional’s One Planet Living sustainability framework comprises ten guiding principles and its detailed goals were developed together with WWF. Backed by science and many years of hands-on experience, this highly flexible framework helps organisations around the world achieve their vision of a brighter, better future.
Singita Serengeti adopted the framework in 2012 and since 2016, all our properties have been committed to its principles. It serves as a basis for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving water, improving waste management and recycling, having a positive impact on local economies and conserving precious natural resources. These sustainability principles are critical to the fulfilment of Singita’s 100-year purpose, and drive us towards our goal of being a completely carbon-neutral operation.
