All our conservation work, including this project, is born of our love for Africa and our need to protect it. Become a part of preserving Africa’s legacy for future generations.

Helping to create tomorrow’s female conservation leaders

In October 2018, the Singita Grumeti Fund and BRAVE will host an exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime, all-woman run across the Serengeti wilderness to raise funds for girl and women empowerment programmes.

 

We are inviting runners of all levels to join this first-ever all-women run across the vast Serengeti plains. Whether on foot or supporting from the shadow vehicle, become part of the, three-day journey of women united for a common cause. Choose between running 30km or 90km over the three-day event.

This unique event forms part of Singita’s brand-new collection of conservation safaris called Safaris with a Purpose. Helping to create the next generation of female leaders in conservation is the specific focus of the fundraising being done through the multi-stage race at Singita Grumeti, which provides 20 participants with an opportunity to make a profound contribution to this cause.
