Rhino Calf Breathes New Life into Species Conservation Project

Since its inception in 2002, one of the Grumeti Fund’s main goals has been returning eastern black rhino to the western Serengeti; establishing a founder population contributing to the genetic pool and bolstering the greater Serengeti-Mara ecosystem’s rhino population.

Contributing to the Conservation of Kruger’s Black Rhinos

According to statistics released by the national Department of Environmental Affairs last month, 1,028 rhinos were killed in South Africa in 2017.

How the Singita Grumeti Fund Quadrupled Plains Game Numbers in the Western Serengeti in Under 15 Years

It’s easy to imagine the Serengeti as a series of enormous, grassy plains traversed by millions of wildebeest, gazelles, zebras and buffalos on the renowned annual migratory route. Popular culture would have most people believe that the region has always been teeming with game, when in fact, the Western Corridor of the Serengeti was in...
