Safari Brothers experiencing the adventure of Singita Explore….James Suter shares his morning moments, waking up to the smell of fireside-brewed coffee and glorious sunrises…

We awake in the morning at our Singita Explore tented camp filled with excitement, listening to both sounds of the Serengeti plains as well as the early morning sounds of the Swahili staff preparing coffee on the fire. Typical mornings include a 06h00 wake up call, hot shower and then as we step outside the tent we are greeted by the most magnificent Tanzanian sunrises.

Quite remarkable and eco-friendly, each sleeper tent is equipped with a 20 litre bucket that is used for the shower, and this provides 10 luxurious minutes of shower time – or more if needed.  Hot water is made via a volcano pressure boiler, and is fuelled by recycled “green” energy.

After thrilling morning game drives, heading back to camp to enjoy a sumptuous cooked breakfast is all that is on our minds.  A table is set up for us out in the open in front of the camp, with shade provided by a large acacia.  Right by our table, staff prepare generous portions of eggs and meats to satisfy our ravenous appetites.  We could stay here forever!

Nothing like the smell of filtered coffee brewed over the coals and a crisp morning chill in the air – James Suter.
