Five critically endangered eastern black rhino, from South Africa, arrived in the Serengeti yesterday as part of the ‘most ambitious wildlife relocation in East Africa over the past 50 years’.

This project – spearheaded by the Singita Grumeti Fund in collaboration with the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) and the Frankfurt Zoological Society – aims to relocate a total of 32 eastern black rhino over a two year period.

To ensure the rhinos’ protection during the relocation process, and the project’s long-term sustainability, an elite Serengeti Rhino Protection Unit has been established. This unit is comprised of 23 carefully selected and trained rangers.

Singita Dreamfields

At Singita Sabi Sand in South Africa, we have partnered with Dreamfields, a non-profit organisation that works with the national Department of Education to put resources for playing soccer and netball into rural schools. Many younger people from outlying areas in South Africa aren’t equipped to play these sports competitively and are unable to reap the lifelong benefits of participating in a well-organised team activity.
