Singita, meaning ‘Place of Miracles’ in Shangaan, is a conservation and ecotourism brand founded on an enduring 100-year purpose to preserve and protect large areas of African wilderness for future generations. Since its founding in 1993, the brand has grown across borders and cultures, creating advocates for conservation and finding passionate partners along the way.
Born of a love for Africa and its untouched wildernesses, it connects people with purpose and delivers unparalleled guest experiences – redefining hospitality and rooting it in authenticity.
In partnership with its non-profit conservation Funds & Trusts, Singita is the trusted guardian of vast stretches of land on the continent and their conservation model is centred around three pillars: Biodiversity, Community and Sustainability. Supported by its sustainable business model, Singita is making a tangible difference in the lives of the people and communities living and working in and around its lodges and reserves.
Singita operates 15 luxury, award-winning lodges and camps in six regions in four African countries, each featuring its own unique experience and character. The latest addition, Singita Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, is the perfect springboard for life-changing gorilla-trekking experiences.
