A Sustainable Safari

By Nicole Dorsey Straff / September 14, 2011

Set across millions of acres of untamed land in South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, Singita Game Reserves are committed to making a measurable difference to local communities; and to protecting the environment and wildlife within the regions they introduce to tourists. Singita tours are renowned not only for luxurious, five-star bush lodgings, spa treatments, and dedicated personal service, but also for the wealth of game found at their locations:

•Singita helps build schools, micro-finances dozens of small African businesses, supports agricultural initiatives, and trains locals in the hospitality industry.

•Many Singita staffers live in outlying communities and are ex-pupils of the local schools which Singita supports. They not only get involved in social outreach projects, but manage the lodges to maximize the positive effects of eco-tourism.

•Singita has dedicated teams that preserve and protect the land and animals that inhabit it. They also finance anti-poaching units. Log on to www.singita.com and learn about their efforts—then book a sustainable safari today.
