Singita Creating Miracles – Community projects in Africa

 
 

True to its name, which in Shangaan translates as ‘place of miracles’, Singita is dedicated to environmentally conscious luxury hospitality with an emphasis on sustainable conservation and community development projects in order to preserve Africa’s wild beauty and rich culture for generations to come.

Singita’s first luxury lodge, Singita Ebony, opened in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve in 1993. The company now operates in five African regions, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy wilderness experiences in eco-luxury in Kruger National Park in South Africa, the Serengeti in Tanzania and Zimbabwe’s Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve too.

At each lodge you’ll find a passionate team of conservationists dedicated to all the things you’d expect, from land rehabilitation and maintenance to wildlife monitoring and protection, but also a host of inspiring community initiatives. In South Africa, The Singita School of Cooking, at Singita Kruger National Park’s staff village, teaches pupils the necessary culinary skills to gain a professional cookery qualification. Meanwhile at Sabi Sand, Singita has partnered with the US-based organisation Teach With Africa to develop a five-week-long programme to teach and improve children’s reading skills.


In Malilangwe, Singita’s feeding programme ensures that children receive the nourishment they need, which in turn makes them more receptive to learning and being the best they can at school.

The Singita Grumeti Environmental Education Centre in Tanzania offers 12 secondary school learners and two teachers five days of training to learn more about nature and the role they play in preserving it.

With the help of the communities that they engage with and support, Singita is best placed to serve and protect the African bushlands, ensuring that they continue to be a place of miracles for a long time to come.
