Serengeti Girls Run 2021
For the fourth consecutive year, we’re inviting runners of all levels to join a multi-stage, all-women run across the untouched wilderness areas of Singita Grumeti’s private concession in the western corridor of the Serengeti, home to an abundance of wildlife and a unique ecosystem.
This exclusive, purpose-driven event forms part of Singita and the Grumeti Fund’s Safaris with a Purpose and will raise funds for empowerment programs for girls, including the provision of sanitary pads for one year and education scholarships.
The run involves a flexible, multi-stage distance of 21km per day.
Whether on foot or supporting the runners in the shadow vehicle, participants will also be able to engage with local girls and learn more about the Grumeti Fund’s work in the region. Every evening, guests are able to enjoy guided evening game drives that provide a front-row seat to this exclusive 350,000-acre protected reserve.
An inimitable opportunity to experience a Serengeti safari while contributing to the empowerment of girls in Africa.
On completion of the run, participants will have the option to learn more about the Grumeti Fund’s community and conservation programs, including a career fair for local high school girls, an option to visit the Anti-Poaching Canine Unit and take a tour of the new center for Research and Innovation for the Serengeti Ecosystem (RISE).
Participants will have the privilege to return to the utmost comfort and luxury after each day’s run, while experiencing the quintessential elements of an idyllic tented safari under canvas.
With its intuitive simplicity and craftsmanship, décor that echoes the earthy colour palette of the bush, modern interpretations of campaign furniture evoking the timeless spirit of East African adventures, and the romance of a tented safari on the plains, it’s the perfect setting for this experience of a lifetime.
