The Father of Fantasy, you could say. We consider ourselves Fantasy Creators too. Fantasy Facilitators. A little kinky, yes, but what is more […]

My Trip | The Secret Life of Tanzania

The Secret Life of Tanzania

Ever wondered what a trip to the Serengeti would be like? Maybe you watched Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman head out on a lion safari in Tanzania in “The Bucket List” and were struck by that pang to go in search of your own adventure.

Tanzania | The Grass is Greener on the Other Side

The Great Migration | Serengeti National Park

Lazying in their tv rooms, watching the Academy Awards with their hands hovering over microwave popcorn, the majority of couch spectators couldn’t care less who earns the title of best make-up or costume design.

Rhino Africa Visits Singita Grumeti

Singita Grumeti

Ensconced alongside the Serengeti’s Western Corridor in Northern Tanzania, Singita Grumeti is more than just a game reserve, it offers a glimpse into the untamed, untouched and unfenced wilderness, where creature comforts are a mere stone’s throw from the creatures themselves.

Exploring East Africa with Singita – Part 2

Giraffe in the wild

After a hearty breakfast it was to our next port of call – Sabora Tented Camp – we headed, via a game drive en route. Again I emphasise the scenery is unmatched elsewhere and I can now fully understand and appreciate why movies like “Out of Africa” et al did so much for East Africa travel.

Exploring Singita East Africa – Part 1

Go on great game drives

Singita was kind enough to have invited myself and my colleague Dee to experience their Grumeti Reserve properties in Tanzania on the western corridor of the Serengeti a couple weeks ago and all I can say is W.O.W! Being my first time to East Africa, I was so excited to get a mere glimpse into this amazing part of our continent and visiting Singita was certainly doing it in only the best way possible.
