Giving Back: Singita

Hotel Feature |


Singita Safari Lodges are incredible properties which give back in a major way. They are dedicated to providing environmentally conscious hospitality, sustainable conservation, and the empowerment of local communities. Their mission is to “share a unique part of the world, while maintaing respect for the natural environment and challenging the accepted notions of luxury.”



Singita has built and operates 12 camps and lodges in South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. They provide an authentic African experience for clients, while doing amazing things for their surrounding communities. Not sure which lodge will be right for your honeymoon? Singita has a great search tool to help you narrow down your options.


“As a safari company, Singita differentiates itself in a philosophical way. Whereas the growth of many businesses worldwide is bottom line driven, Singita’s decisions take into account 20, 50 and even 100-year horizons,” says Singita’s CEO, Luke Bailes. “People feel privileged to stay in unpopulated, untouched wilderness areas and they choose to stay with us because our lodges have a reputation for being rare and authentic, while embodying a philosophy of sensitivity.” Adds Bailes, “there’s an authenticity of place at each of our lodges that is not only a rarity but touches guests on every level – spiritual, emotional and physical.”



“Today, Singita is the trusted guardian of over half a million acres of pristine land in Africa and responsible for successful community development projects, making a tangible difference in the lives of the people living and working in and around its lodges. Singita proudly operates 12 lodges and camps, each a unique experience in its own right, in five regions across three countries in Africa.”
