Singita is the Shangaan word for ‘Place of Miracles.’ In the spirit of miracles, Singita’s mission is to conserve, preserve, and protect the wilderness of Africa- and with over one million acres of land to oversee, this is no small feat!
Read on to learn how this luxury safari brand is leading the way in eco-tourism and how you can be a part of the conservation efforts as you explore Africa’s wilderness.
The Singita team aims to restore, enhance and protect the biodiversity of the land they foster. From anti-poaching initiatives, to extensive wildlife research, Singita strives to understand and preserve biodiversity in all its forms. Notably, these efforts have been “wildly” successful; Singita has one of the highest concentrations of black rhinos in Africa and has seen a 1,000% increase in the elephant population at Singita Grumeti, despite widespread poaching across other areas in Africa.
Aside from protecting the natural ecosystem, Singita supports the surrounding communities through educating children on conservation efforts and creating alternative economic opportunities through employing 1,200 locals. By empowering communities and ensuring that they have alternate sources of food and income, the team helps to mitigate poaching and reduce the impact on the African wilderness while spreading the positive message of conservation.
