ACTIVITIES:


Game drive in the Serengeti

Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals, while spot lit nighttime drives reveal the elusive magic of nocturnal Africa. Our game drives are all conducted in state-of-the-art Land Cruisers, each accommodating a maximum of six guests. During your stay at Singita Grumeti, you are likely to spot a great variety of wildlife including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, bat eared fox, black rhino, Maasai giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, zebra and the rare Colobus monkey.



Community Visit

Guests at Singita Grumeti have the opportunity to visit the Environmental Education Centre, which was developed for the young people of the local communities, to meet the students and learn about the programme. The Centre is dedicated to instilling in its students an understanding of the Serengeti Ecosystem and provides education on the rationale behind “protected areas” and on general, local and global environmental issues.



Hot air ballooning over the Serengeti

Visitors to Singita Grumeti in Tanzania have the unique opportunity of chartering a hot air balloon for an unforgettable ride over the treetops of the Serengeti. This once-in-a-lifetime experience takes game viewing to new heights and gives photography buffs an amazing new perspective on the world below. You’ll skim above the grasslands and acacia forests, and at other times ascend to 1 000 feet to see the enormity of the reserve. The Singita Balloon Safari is a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness as you gracefully and silently glide over the plains, observing the wide variety of wildlife below.



Search for the migration herds

One of Africa’s most iconic moments – the migration of two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles around the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem. Searching for the herds requires a good dose of luck, patience and staying in the right location. The herds move every month or two, driven by instinct and the search for fresh grazing. Whether you watch as they congregate on the southern Ndutu plains to give birth to their young, or see wildebeest snaking in lines through the grassy savannah as far as the eye can see, it is an impressive sight to behold.



Tennis

Experience a game of tennis as you never would have before.Enjoy your time on court whilst being surrounded by the beauty of the African wilderness. Cool down with rewarding refreshments and a dip in the nearby swimming pool.



Anti-poaching Observation Post Visit

The Singita Grumeti Fund anti-poaching team is made up of 120 dedicated scouts.These scouts patrol the 350,000-acre private concession and are based in 12 scout camps and in 12 observation posts (OP) dotted across the reserve. Each OP is manned by two scouts who are constantly surveying the area for any unusual activity. This could be poachers coming through the protected area or vehicles that do not belong to the company or a herd of cattle entering the area or an animal in distress.



Guided Safari Walks

Walking safaris are an incredible way to experience the bush up close and personal.Your expert guide and tracker will accompany you as you track animals on foot through the wilderness and explore the magnificent plants and landscapes around you.We suggest a minimum age of 15 years for this activity, but participation is at the discretion of your Field Guide.



Archery

Spend a morning on taking lessons from your guide on how to shoot with a bow and arrow.With a bow for children and a professional compound bow with arrows for adults, it is a fun activity for the whole group.
