Wagora MTB Ride

Ride in solidarity and support of the anti-poaching scouts who fearlessly protect wildlife in this land of The Great Migration.

For the first time, experienced riders from around the world are invited to take part in the Wagora Serengeti MTB Ride. This exclusive event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride for a cause through the extraordinary Serengeti, while supporting conservation efforts for the Grumeti Fund’s anti-poaching scouts who protect this ecosystem’s precious wildlife.

The name of the race pays tribute to Kitaboka Wagora, an anti-poaching scout who was tragically shot and killed by a poacher while on patrol in 2008. His memory continues to inspire others to follow a path of bravery, courage and the commitment to protect and conserve Africa’s wild places for future generations.

This three-day event traverses 150 kilometres in the Grumeti Reserve along the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park. Breath-taking views and enthralling animal sightings are part of the journey in this landscape that is home to The Great Migration.

Conservation Partner

Grumeti Fund

As the custodian of more than 350,000 acres of the world-renowned Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania, Singita’s partnership with Grumeti Fund has had a profound impact on the Serengeti ecosystem. The non-profit Grumeti Fund carries out wildlife conservation and community development programs in and around the Singita Grumeti Reserve.

Faced with challenges including uncontrolled illegal hunting, rampant wildfires and spreading strands of invasive alien vegetation when they took over the management of the area in 2003, the Fund dedicated itself to transform severely depleted wildlife numbers into thriving populations once more. Restoring this once barren and highly degraded region to a flourishing wilderness, their successes include the remarkable recovery of many species – including buffalo, wildebeest and elephant populations, and in 2019, the Fund carried out the largest single relocation and reintroduction of 9 critically endangered Eastern Black Rhino.

The non-profit Fund is fiscally independent in its conservation and community project operations. Funds are derived in the form of donations from Singita guests, NGOs and philanthropists seeking to make a lasting contribution to the sustainability of conservation work in Africa.
