Singita Reveals Interactive Elephant Collaring Project for Guests

As part of Singita’s non-profit conservation project within Tanzania, Singita Grumeti Fund, which aims to help conserve African wildlife, the company revealed its new elephant collaring project which aims to immerse guests in an interactive safari, while tackling a major human-wildlife conflict.

Singita recently unveiled a main issue between farmers who live on the edge of the private concessions and elephants who trample and eat their crops. The initiative began with fitting six bull elephants and six cow elephants with GPS enabled satellite collars, so that they could identify which were the true crop raiders. Once being able to identify these crop raiders, the human-wildlife conflict mitigation unit are deployed to steer the animals back on the right course, therefore preventing human-wildlife conflict.

Part of this project is to allow guests of Singita Tanzanian lodges the chance to experience first-hand what it is like to participate in one of these tracking and fitting operations.
