African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
For the past years Singita has been observing how travellers
have evolved. We are recognizing the ever-increasing demand
from discerning travellers for private travel, the utmost
exclusivity of a destination, and the ability to access
nature in a close and meaningful manner. With this in mind,
Singita is launching a transformational new travel concept –
Singita Explore, a return to the very essence of safari.
This exclusive mobile camp is designed for minimal
environmental impact, treading lightly on 340,000 acres of
private reserve, offering en-suite canvas hideaways that
restore true adventure to days in the wilderness. The camp
will be sold on an exclusive use basis only, available year
round, and this back-to-basics mobile camp only operates
within Singita Grumeti Reserves. Comprising 6 tents and 2
mess tents the camp will be placed in remote parts of the
reserve, guaranteeing closeness to wildlife and untouched
landscapes, and is hosted by a private guide, camp host,
chef and camp staff.
Singita Game Reserves has launched Singita Explore, a
transformational new travel concept that will take guests on
a private mobile safari to some of Africa’s most remote and
romantic wilderness sites. The new product has been custom
designed to meet global trends and the demand from
discerning travellers for ‘privacy, exclusivity and
closeness to nature’. Singita Explore will be rolled out in
East Africa on the first of June 2011 within the 340 000
acre (142 000ha) Singita Grumeti Reserves, situated along
the Western corridor of Tanzania’s legendary Serengeti.
A completely exclusive, true ‘mobile’ camp, Singita
Explore is a unique, modern safari experience unlike any
other. Singita Explore puts the adventure back into ‘going
on safari’, offering a journey of exploration on an
exclusive-use basis for between 2 and 12 guests only. It is
an ideal component of an East African safari itinerary
within the Singita Grumeti Reserves, including stays at its
three different lodges: Singita Faru Faru, Singita Sabora
Tented Camp and flagship Singita Sasakwa, the only Relais &
Châteaux property in East Africa.
Touching the earth lightly, everything about the mobile
camp is designed for minimal energy consumption with little
environmental impact. Guests will return from game drives to
en-suite hideaways where canvas walls frame contemporary
details infused with the durable textures of Africa.
Designed by Cécile & Boyd’s around a theme that is modern,
robust and stylish, with wholesome furnishings that are
real, utilitarian and comfortable - in steel, leather,
timber, rubber and natural fabrics, Singita Explore removes
the clutter of everyday life with a safari that is both
luxurious and uncomplicated. Singita’s innovative signature
style and dedication to conservation embodies the design and
purpose of Singita Explore.
Luke Bailes, CEO of Singita Game Reserves says privacy
and exclusivity too are key signatures of the Singita
Explore concept. ‘With Singita Explore we see the return of
raw authenticity to days spent in the bush, and nights under
canvas in the wilderness. Luxury is still there, but we’re
doing it differently - comfortable and detailed, with the
excess taken out, and yet, retaining the element of luxury
to offer a very beautiful safari adventure experience.
Singita Explore is back to basics, pure distilled Africa
without modern-day distractions to guarantee closeness to
wildlife and untouched landscapes.’ Unlike other camps,
which are seasonal and semi-permanent, Singita Explore will
be disassembled on demand, and moved to different locations
in accordance to nature, its rainfall patterns, vegetation,
and game movements that include the annual wildebeest
migration - one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on
earth. The mobile safari camp will be fully staffed with a
private guide and game viewing vehicle, chef and a camp
host, with each itinerary individually tailored according to
guests’ personal interests, and preferred safari activities.
Within Singita Grumeti Reserves, Singita Explore will also
offer equestrian mobile tented safaris, providing an
opportunity for horse lovers to spend their days riding on
the open plains of the Serengeti, and the evenings gathered
around the campfire, sharing stories and experiences.
Equestrian group departures have been set for August,
September and October 2011, to accommodate up to eight
riders from different parts of the world, brought together
by their love for riding and nature. Elsewhere, the new
Singita Explore brand may in future extend into some of the
other pristine wilderness reserves where Singita holds
