Experience the mesmerizing Serengeti in total privacy with Singita Explore, a mobile tented camp that allows travelers to discover the true essence of life in the bush.
Singita, the award-winning luxury safari company, has created an African adventure that harkens back to the early days of safari travel. The mobile camps are set up in remote sections of Singita Grumeti in Tanzania, providing unprecedented opportunities for animal viewing within its 350,000 private acres. Stylish canvas tents, exquisitely furnished, and the excitement of your own exclusive piece of untamed wilderness make each excursion unforgettable.
Retreat to your own private canvas tent and be lulled to sleep by the sweet rhythms of the African night. With comfortable beds, crisp linens, stylish folding furniture, natural fabrics, soft lamp lighting and en suite facilities, each space has been thoughtfully designed. It’s luxurious and uncomplicated, functional and fabulous — with appointments that meet the high standards set by Singita. And when guests roll up their window and door flaps, the views of the Serengeti are completely breathtaking.
The flexibility, exclusivity and mobility of Singita Explore ensures that guests enjoy the best wildlife viewing with all the luxuries of a Singita safari. Itineraries are tailored to guests’ interests. The small groups are hosted by a private guide, camp host, chef and camp staff that will arrange each move. Singita Explore excursions can be built into a stay at one of Singita’s two lodges or the tented camp in the Grumeti Reserves, where swimming pools, tennis, gym facilities and spa services are available.
Singita Grumeti is located in the Serengeti, a vast, diverse habitat where lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs, zebras, gazelles and monkeys, to name a few, roam free. Private game drives provide myriad opportunities for viewing wildlife and the annual great migration. Guests can also explore on horseback, cantering across the wide open plains on a riding safari. Star-gazing, archery, swimming, mountain biking and tennis are available at Singita’s outposts in the Grumeti Reserves.
An open fire. A mess tent. A chef skilled in the art of preparing gourmet meals in the bush. Dining on a Singita Explore excursion is deliciously exotic. It’s a time to socialize and to reflect on the day’s activities. A personal chef at each camp site creates a variety of flavorful dishes. Surrounded by the beauty and sheer magnificence of the Serengeti, travelers enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner and daily teas and coffees. All drinks, including wines, spirits and liqueurs, are provided.
Singita Grumeti plays an active role in conserving wildlife in the Serengeti. Environmental education is a necessity to help Tanzania address the effects of climate change and the destruction of biodiversity. The Environmental Education Centre was opened to educate school children on the benefits of preserving wildlife and the natural environment. Singita Grumeti has also created programs to support the local community, establishing a number of sustainable agricultural projects. In addition, the Grumeti Fund Scholarship provides educational opportunities to disadvantaged individuals in neighboring communities.
