Singita offers four safari lodges in two private game reserves in the Kruger National Park. Choose between Singita Ebony Lodge or Singita Boulders Lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve or Singita Lebombo Lodge or Singita Sweni Lodge in the unexplored N’wanetsi concession bordering Mozambique.
All are delightfully intimate, all boast standards good enough for Relais & Châteaux and all offer highly-informative game drives supplemented by a gym and bush spa.
SINGITA BOULDERS LODGE
Boulders Lodge is an architectural masterpiece at the source of the Sand River, its use of stone and thatch combining with its muted colours to reflect all the sensibilities of Africa. At its heart lies an oversized lounge where guests meet for drinks; the deck and dining room perfect for lunches and candlelit dinners. Of course everyone finds themselves hard-pressed to leave their suites, all 12 of them exciting exercises in contemporary African style, their private pools their pièce de résistance. 2 nights from £2,010pp (flights & transfers extra).
SINGITA EBONY LODGE
Ebony is also set on the banks of the Sand River, its classic thatch and timber design echoing the colonial style of a bygone era. An elegant, yet homely ambience is evoked throughout, the public areas featuring fireplaces, warm colours and local artefacts; the 12 suites boasting anything from four-posters and claw-foot tubs to fireplaces and private pools. Dining by lamplight on the timber deck overlooking the river is a fitting end to the leisurely days here. 2 nights from £1,595pp (flights & transfers extra).
SINGITA LEBOMBO LODGE
A tour-de-force of glass, water, steel and timber high above the land rather than on it. A natural extension of its wild surroundings, the 15 cliff side rooms are accessed along walkways that snake their way amongst the tall euphorbia trees. Light, minimalist and at one with nature, their wall-to-wall glass windows and timber leisure decks offer mesmerising views over the N’wanetsi River and are wonderfully relaxing bases from which to experience the spectacular wildlife of this part of South Africa. 2 nights from £2,010pp (flights & transfers extra).
SINGITA SWENI LODGE
Constructed on stilts and the smallest and most tranquil of Singita’s designer lodges. The six ultra-luxurious hides are tucked away amongst the trees on the banks of the Sweni River, their predominantly sombre colour schemes lifted by flashes of bright green, their African styling counterpointed by carefully-chosen contemporary pieces. This creative decor also extends to the public areas, the deck and dining area overlooking the river and serving African fusion cuisine that goes very well with the excellent wine cellar.
2 nights from £2,010pp (flights & transfers extra).
2 nights from £2,450 per person (Price excludes flights and transfers).
