Singita Lowveld Trust (SLT), Singita’s non-profit conservation and community development partner in South Africa, is committed to safeguarding the beautiful wilderness areas and wildlife in the Greater Kruger National Park region, contributing to Singita’s 100-year purpose to preserve and protect large areas of African wilderness for future generations.
Our Biodiversity Projects focus on maintaining healthy, well-functioning ecosystems and habitats in the Reserves in which Singita operates. These ecosystems are the foundation for safeguarding a diverse range of wildlife and refugia for species of conservation concern, such as rhinos, leopards, lions, wild dogs and vultures.
We ensure that surrounding communities benefit tangibly from living alongside wilderness areas. This goes well beyond offering significant tourism, hospitality and conservation employment opportunities in these rural communities. We work tirelessly to support ongoing socio-economic improvement and livelihood opportunities – focusing on supporting education and local enterprise development to enable these communities to prosper.
All of our programs and partnerships support Singita’s core commitment to our One Planet Sustainability commitments – promoting a world in which people enjoy happy, healthy lives within their fair share of the Earth’s resources, while also leaving space for wildlife and wilderness to thrive.
This exciting partnership marks a significant step towards achieving the SLT’s long-term community partnership goal - assisting neighbouring rural communities whilst supporting a new generation of local, young professional chefs into the tourism and hospitality sector, enabling them to thrive in these careers well into the future.Read this post
