Singita Grumeti Reserves
Singita Grumeti Reserves is located adjacent to the western corridor of the Serengeti. The area encompasses over 350,000 hectares of unrivaled wilderness, and is home to the famed annual migration—known as 'the greatest wildlife show on Earth.'
Visitors come from far and wide to experience the annual wildlife migration, but even when it's not migration season, many animals are still to be seen roaming the vast plains.
Without a doubt, the Serengeti is one of the most prolific wild areas in Africa. Singita Grumeti Reserves is located adjacent to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti (bordering the national park) and encompasses over 350 000 acres of unrivalled wilderness.
