Grumeti Air and Federal Airlines partners with Singita 

Forerunner in the safari industry, Singita, plans to revoluntionise the industry with its new airline partnerships with Grumeti Air and Federal Airlines. These two regional airlines will provide direct access between guests and the thousands of acres of land and wildlife that Singita promises to protect and preserve for 100 years. From this summer (June), Federal Airlines will be launching an exclusive new daily jet service for Singita guests, which for the first time will include a selection of new guest services and reduce the flying time from an hour to just over half an hour. Flights will also service passengers from Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to Singita lodges in the Sabi Sand, providing direct non-stop access.


Singita also announced that its partner airline Grumeti Air in Tanzania will make it quicker, easier and safer than ever to visit the six lodges and camps within Singita Serengeti. With a flight every day that takes just over an hour, directly from Arusha to Singita Sasakwa Lodge via Kilimanjaro, guests avoid the lengthy journey of the past that involved multiple stops along the way. The direct route will open up the best of the Serengeti, and with Lamai just a 15-minute hop away, an exclusively Singita East African itinerary is now much more accessible.
