The Siringit Vision

At Siringit we believe that your memories should matter, that our collective travel print should be conscious to benefit communities in Tanzania and inspire opportunity for economic empowerment.

We value community and respect for people and nature, which are fundamental to Tanzanian culture. We hire and source locally, and it's important to us to include local cultures in the Siringit experience. That's why you'll have the opportunity to hear stories from Maasai warriors around the campfire—they play a key role in guest security and protection.

We believe that education is the key to empowering communities and empowering people out of poverty. Every child has a right to education. It is the water that will make a child’s dream a reality in the future. By investing in education, creating a safe inspiring environment for children to learn about wildlife and conservation, and providing children with a basic right to a quality education at the Baraa Primary School in Arusha, we provide the nourishment for the trees of the future to grow. 

Furthermore, we prioritize the development of our current teams, opting to promote from within for key roles at our properties. This approach offers our staff the chance to progress professionally and encourages inspiration among colleagues in their roles.

Investing in Education

Baraa Primary School, located in Arusha, is a government school receiving support from the Siringit Foundation. This collaboration began in 2009, initially through a Belgian NGO called iThemba, of which the owner of Siringit is also a founder. The primary focus at the start was to enhance the school's infrastructure by constructing new classrooms, sanitary facilities, a library, a computer room, and providing essential supplies such as books and stationery. These efforts aimed to create improved learning conditions for the children attending the school.

For the future, our priority is to enhance the quality of education and elevate teaching methods to boost the overall academic performance of the children. We firmly believe that a solid education is the key for securing a brighter future.

Currently, the Siringit Foundation provides support for 150 children and students to ensure their continued enrolment in school and access to educational opportunities. We cover various expenses, including school materials (such as exercise books, pens and pencils), school uniforms, remedial classes, cooked school lunches, annual school trips and emergency medical fees (in the event of hospitalization at school), among other essentials.

Recruite and educate

Since the beginning, our goal has been to create a distinctive boutique ambiance, offering exceptional cuisine and overall excellence. This commitment is reflected in our thorough in-house training programs, conducted in collaboration with local NGOs. Thanks to this collaborative approach, we have been fortunate to receive international acclaim and rave reviews. None of this would be possible without our exceptional staff, and we are truly delighted and proud to share this journey with each and every one of them.

We prioritize hiring locally, offering our staff additional benefits such as healthcare, support for their children's education, and assistance with rent, thereby contributing to the well-being of the local community. 

Additionally, we continuously invest in the training of our staff, ensuring they develop skills beyond job requirements. We actively support local schools by providing extracurricular in-house training opportunities.


We acknowledge the critical importance of sustainable practices in fulfilling our mission to conserve vast African wilderness areas for future generations.

Our unwavering commitment to sustainability drives us to continually reduce our ecological footprint while also striving to enhance the livelihoods of our employees and neighbouring communities.

Our efforts include utilizing locally sourced materials, such as recycled metal frameworks and durable stretch canvas, ensuring enduring solutions for the luxury camping experience. We also prioritize refillable glass amenities and provide refillable water bottles, among other initiatives.

Reducing carbon

We understand that our reliance on fossil fuels in our operations exceeds the Earth's capacity to manage greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to widespread climate change.

To combat this issue, we're undertaking initiatives such as installing renewable energy sources, upgrading to more efficient equipment, constructing energy-efficient buildings, and educating our staff on the importance of energy conservation.

The primary contributors to our carbon footprint are electricity and generator usage. In an initiative to tackle this issue, we've made substantial changes by adopting renewable energy sources like solar power technology. We've introduced energy-efficient solutions such as highly efficient air-conditioners and LED light bulbs to decrease the energy usage at our properties.


The Siringit Foundation understands that collaboration is essential—we can't address these challenges alone. Through the Kilimanjaro Project, we've partnered with like-minded organizations who share our vision of a greener world. Together, we actively work to combat climate change, reduce poverty, ensure food security, and preserve biodiversity.

Together, we nurture indigenous trees along the riparian zones of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru to promote conservation, biodiversity, and watershed restoration. We provide financial incentives to communities through the "pay to grow" model, where they plant trees and receive compensation based on the incremental growth rate of their trees.

Wildlife migrates daily through the camp and it is possible to game view and bird watching from the verandah of your tent.

today there are over fifty black rhinos breeding in the wild


We are working in collaboration with Tanapa rangers to ensure the protection of the rhinos in Serengeti National Park. The rhinos of Serengeti will continue to live in their natural habitat if we all do our little bit to help restore the wild populations in Tanzania. Tourism is a vital contribution to rhino conservation in the future.

In the meanwhile Siringit seeks conservation opportunities where we will have a more direct impact, and therefore, our clients will have a more direct impact.

Memories for a lifetime
