Grumeti Game Reserve, Serengeti, Tanzania

Without a doubt this is the most authentic “roughing-it in great style” experience the Serengeti has to offer.

A private use camp on the plains of the Serengeti, it is a return to the simplicity and authenticity of safari life but with a thoroughly modern sensibility and freshness about it.

It’s camping but without having to forfeit the creature comforts or attentive service that are intrinsic to a Singita experience.

Singita Explore is particularly appealing to those in search of an opportunity to connect up-close with the earth and wildlife in a way they have never done before.

With a private guide, chef, camp host and camp staff, activities can be arranged on a whim, game drives may be as long or as short as you choose and intimate experiences await.

A private-use camp on the Serengeti Plains, offering 6x 1-bedroom tents configured to suit each individual group of travellers.

This is an exclusive-use camp so it is pitched and set-up based on the requirements of each booking.

KEY SPECIES YOU ARE LIKELY TO SEE
During your stay, you are likely to spot a great variety of wildlife, including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, Bat Eared fox, Maasai giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard.
There is no real beginning or end to the wildebeest’s constant search for food and water. The only beginning is when calves are born – almost 400,000 wildebeest calves are born during a 6-week period usually between late January and mid-March. The migration path varies from year to year depending on weather and other environmental factors.
Generally over the year the animals move from the wet southern and eastern plains of the Serengeti from November to March through the western and central region to the dryer north of the Serengeti National Park, both north and south of the Mara River, from the end of May through October.
Grumeti, situated adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, is an integral part of the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem, the home of the Great Migration. The reserve was created by the Tanzanian government in 1994 in order to protect the path of the annual wildebeest migration and the indigenous biodiversity of this vast and important ecosystem. The Serengeti plains teem with wildlife, including vast herds of plains game, a plethora of predators and the spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration.
East Africa is equatorial so the climate is fairly constant and it is a year-round destination. Tanzania has a light rain season from November to March. This period is known as the ‘short rains’, often no more than a quick downpour each day, followed by clear sunshine. From December to March the weather becomes increasingly warmer with the ‘long rains’ occurring between April and May.

BOOK NOW

Singita operates 12 lodges and camps in 5 wilderness regions across 3 African countries (South Africa, Zimbabwe and Tanzania).
Singita’s enduring purpose is to conserve, preserve, and protect the miraculous places of which they are custodians. Singita’s concessions, reserves, and properties represent some of the most pristine wilderness areas on the continent and they are dedicated to maintaining these incredible pieces of earth for future generations.
Singita properties are the most exclusive lodges in all of South Africa. Celebrities from all over the world come to these properties–everyone from Elton John, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, to Justin Bieber.
Africa changes you forever, and to go on safari is to experience the greatest outdoor adventure holiday of them all. To live for a while in the sun and the wind, looking for lions on the boundless savannahs or watching the spectacle of the wildebeest migration is all you need for the lure of the wild to take hold.
Discerning travellers yet to go on a safari holiday should know it is possible to do so without sacrificing an ounce of comfort, staying in luxury safari camps and lodges whose facilities are the equal of any world-class city hotel, and whose romantic locations are second to none.
Even though these properties offer modern conveniences, such as spa and gym facilities, the surrounding environment is what makes these accommodations so unique. You’ll be closer to the action — so close that at times you’ll have to be escorted through the bush to your suite.
Sustainability
Unlike most safari operators, Singita is unique in taking full responsibility for the conservation of the land it operates on, ensuring eco-tourism and eco-systems work hand-in-hand.
Each property hosts researchers – often PhD students – working on issues that will have a direct impact on the region’s conservation work. In Singita Sabi Sand that could be the reintroduction of reed-buck or trends in the extensive leopard population. At the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve it may be the ongoing work to boost populations of the endangered roan antelope.
While managing and restoring the land is key, ensuring the lodges touch the earth lightly is equally important. At each property the footprint of the lodge is kept to a minimum, with everything from waste disposal to power generation constantly assessed for ways to reduce any adverse impact on the environment.
Planning a safari trip can be a daunting task.
ZEKKEI offers a wide range of luxury African safari options. We want to help you ensure that your experience is unforgettable. Choose from one of our luxury lodges at well-known rest camps. We specialize in lavish and indulgent getaways and provide once-in-a-lifetime fully guided safaris.
