SustainabilityLocal and Sustainable FoodKruger National Park, Pamushana, Sabi Sand, Serengeti - South Africa
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.

Supporting sustainable and humane farming, promoting access to healthy, low impact, local, seasonal and organic diets, and reducing food waste.

As part of Singita’s approach of supporting adjacent communities, the company sources as much food as it can locally and supports the initiation of projects that can further increase local sourcing. The lodges place great emphasis on their farm-to-table approach. The use of fresh, seasonal produce is one of the most important elements of the enticing daily menus. This produce is sourced from local farmers who have grown and developed their farming skills through the continuous support and long-term relationship with Singita. As high levels of meat consumption are detrimental to the environment, local educational programs will look at including the benefits of balanced diets and animal protein substitutes.
