CommunitySerengeti Girls RunSerengeti - Tanzania
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.

Following the success of the event in 2018, we are inviting runners of all levels to join an all-women run across the untouched wilderness areas of Singita Grumeti’s private concession in the western corridor of the Serengeti, home to a plethora of wildlife and a unique ecosystem.

This exclusive, purpose-driven opportunity will raise funds towards programs for the empowerment of girls and women, specifically focused on providing opportunities for women to become leaders in conservation. The run covers a flexible, multi-stage distance of 21km per day over 3 days. Whether on foot or supporting in the shadow vehicle, guests participating in this journey will also have the opportunity to engage with local girls and learn more about the Grumeti Fund’s work in the region.

Each evening, guests can enjoy guided game drives, exploring the teeming plains of this exclusive 350,000-acre protected reserve. On completion of the run, the participants will learn more about the Grumeti Fund’s successful anti-poaching strategy, including a visit to their Canine Unit and Joint Operations Centre to meet the Anti-Poaching team.
