In March, as the calving season comes to an end, and the winds blowing from the East bring a scent of rain, the herds of the great migration in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, start their annual pilgrimage following the rain in search of nourishing pastures. A circling Steppe Eagle calls above, announcing a change in climate conditions. Siringit Collection takes this moment to reflect on the diversity of the landscapes unfolding from the rim of Ngorongoro Crater to the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park. A connection between man and nature is formed.
With our feet rooted to the earth, just as the hooves of herds make their imprints along the endless trails moving East, we too keep moving forward with a sense of renewed purpose and optimism. Spring unfolds its magnificence on the Serengeti plains inspiring us to nurture our commitment to conservation through education and to be mindful of our footprint on this beautiful planet Earth.
The Safari travel experience has become increasingly remote, private and exclusive, with an emphasis placed on reconnecting to nature in extraordinary wilderness locations. Siringit Collection has rewilded and adapted to the current climate conditions creating private safari “bubbles” and open-air living spaces, to inspire creativity and transformation.
We have become mindful of your travel needs in this new climate taking every opportunity to value your wellness on Safari, dining out under a canopy of stars and Acacia trees and serving fresh locally sourced food in open-air dining spaces. We prioritize rare exclusive safari experiences for our guests.
Game drives can be enjoyed in the private bubble of your luxury safari vehicle.
Exquisite menus for the Siringit Collection are being created by Axel Janssens, a Michelin Star Chef who moved to Tanzania from Belgium. Axel’s mouth-watering seasonal recipes are a passion, an art, a symphony of the multicultural fusion of travel influences, aromas and tastes narrating the story of a travellers life in Africa giving back to people. Axel established one of the first Chef training programs in Arusha, Tanzania. Axel trains street children to become Chefs in his restaurant and catering company.
Axel’s Chefs will be creating delicious food in the Siringit Collection properties throughout the year.
As travel slows down and we encourage our guests to stay longer in our properties, Axel has designed a unique cooking course for our guests to learn from the master the art of creating sensational inspirational food.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Chef Axel Janssens and Brittany Douglas on the birth of their daughter Margaux Janssens.
The Siringit Collection has returned to the roots of Safari, where intimate mobile camps move in symbiosis with the migration. Our new mobile camp, Siringit Migration Camp, is currently being tailored and constructed in Arusha. Bedouin-style organic canvas tents made by Tentickle Tanzania will open into the rolling landscapes of the Serengeti National Park. The canvas boundaries between man and nature will fade away to forge a reconnection with our greatest source of inspiration and creativity, nature.
