Within Singita Sabi Sand is Ebony Lodge. This place has a powerful presence and an spirit that evokes an strong feeling of familiarity, as if visiting a friendly family home. Sumptuous coziness is simply the order of the day, tempting guests into repose and reflection. The private thatched suites are the personification of elegant comfort, with rooms styled with a diverse mix of colors, fabrics and textures. A regal feel with Egyptian linen, African throws, antiques and contemporary luxuries combine to create a homely, lived-in feel.

Singita Ebony Lodge offers twelve suites, all with their own en suite bathroom and shower, outside shower, heated private swimming pool, double-sided fireplace, mini bar and fridge, room mini safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, private lounge, direct dial telephones and game-viewing deck.


Boulders Lodge, also within Singita Sabi Sand, has a modern air of serenity that honors Africa in a genuine way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an massive boulder that sat right in the middle of the place where the wine cellar was to be built. A simple decision was made to build the cellar around the boulder. Guests can enjoy wrap-around views from most parts of the natural stone lodge, and the lookout deck offers the ideal spot from which to watch wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The calm pond alongside the thatched lounge area allows the light and the landscape inside to the wide open spaces, where straw baskets, neutral shades and textured fabrics complement wooden furniture.


Lastly, Singita Castleton Camp is found within Singita Sabi Sand. It’s a genuinely inviting, comfortable hideaway that exudes timeless charm. Castleton comprises a stone-walled ‘farmhouse’ and six charming rooms in a garden setting, with mesmerizing memorabilia and artifacts that create an environment of modest luxury. The camp is booked as an exclusive villa and can accommodate up to twelve guests at a time. Guests enjoy transcendent cuisine prepared by an executive chef, vintage South African wines, fireside dinners in the boma and sundowners out in the bush, while children can have fun at the tennis court, swimming pool or trampoline.


Singita Kruger National Park is positioned where two rivers meet, in an exclusive game-rich 33000-acre concession in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Boasting the top concentration of wildlife in the entire park, including the ‘Big 5’, the area is also known for its majestic Mountain Pride of lions and unique Euphorbia trees.
Like the Lebombo Euphorbia tree after which it was named, the design of Lebombo Lodge, found in Singita Kruger National Park, is one of a kind. From the sweeping wooden decks, you can watch the drama that unfolds before you, while the lap pool beckons to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. The fifteen suites feature modern finishes with beds dressed with Egyptian cotton and silky-soft throws. Enjoy dinner in the boma, then spend the evening, if you so wish, sleeping under the stars on the bed of your private terrace.


Sweni Lodge was influenced by the structures of dens, warrens and lairs found in the area. Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts with decks of timber. Even when guests are indoors, there is the sensation of being close to the river and trees. The lodge is home to six secluded suites, with tactile furnishings, which have been vigilantly created to bring in the textures and shades of the bush.


In Tanzania, Singita Grumeti Reserves offers an unmatched eco-safari teeming with wonderful wildlife encounters on the western corridor of the Serengeti.

Singita Sasakwa Lodge is one of three Singita lodges in this massive private concession (340,000 acres), which means that guests will have this wild stretch of Africa all to yourself. Sasakwa Lodge is built in the style of an Edwardian manor house. Stone walls, deep verandas, high ceilings, stately furniture, silverware and ornamental pieces complete the picture. Each cottage has a private infinity-edge pool overlooking ‘where the land stretches to forever’. The bedrooms with inviting four-posters are wonderfully appointed, displaying typical African influences with touches of wood, leather and grass, alongside crisp linens, imported chandeliers and hand-crafted furniture.


Reminiscent of a former era, Sabora Tented Camp offers generous doses of romance, journeying and intrigue. Creating the feel of a lavish tent, each canvas cocoon offers lavish luxury complete with traditional mahogany travel chests, Persian rugs and silk curtains. Sip sundowners on the deck and gaze over the waterhole, you never know what you might see. At Sabora, they enjoy greatly in creating scrumptious feasts using locally grown organic produce, coupled with vintage wines, in surprise settings. Imagine dining beneath a lamp-lit acacia or under the boughs of a large ‘Sausage’ tree, with starlit skies and the distant chorus of nocturnal creatures.


Situated on a slope, basking in the abundance of animal species and birdlife around it, Singita Faru Faru Lodge lends a contemporary signature style to safari. Inspired by a botanical theme, this riverside lodge offers barefoot elegance in a laid-back rustic setting. The organic lines of two rim-flow swimming pools echo those of a watering hole that lies just below. The elevated viewing decks over the watering hole allow guests to view game without even leaving their lodge, and a Swahili-inspired ‘beach’ offers the opportunity for some serious rest and relaxation. The contrast of stone and canvas against cutting-edge design and comfortable furnishings is integrated in eight open-style suites and one Villa Suite. The Villa Suite is made up of two identical double bedrooms and a large shared open space lounge/dining area. The bedrooms are en-suite with a bath and outdoor shower.
