Philanthropy

Singita Mara River Tented Camp is designed using recycled and natural materials and powered by solar energy and rechargeable LED lamps to minimize impact to the environment. In addition, Singita Grumeti in Tanzania plays an active role in protecting the Serengeti. 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.
