Singita (‘place of miracles’) is world-renowned for providing the best safari experience in Africa. The balance of hospitality, conservation and community is what sets Singita apart.
There are five lodges in two equally alluring parts of South Africa, both famous for their exquisite beauty and the chance of finding the ‘Big 5’.
The founding lodges, Singita Ebony Lodge
and Singita Boulders Lodge
, are located within the Sabi Sand Reserve – the world’s best leopard viewing area, as well as Singita Castleton Camp, a private 6-roomed villa that overlooks a well-frequented waterhole. Singita Lebombo Lodge
and Singita Sweni Lodge
are found along the secluded eastern reaches of the Kruger National Park – a remote wilderness area renowned for its lion prides.Sabi Sand Reserve
Singita Sabi Sand offers rare solitude and the ultimate in safari luxury on prime game viewing land recognised globally for its diversity and formidable concentration of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Guests can choose between three unfenced lodges, infused with the glamour and elegance of Singita.
Singita Ebony Lodge and Singita Boulders Lodge, overlooking the Sand River, offer lavish comforts that have earned Singita the highest international accolades.
Each lodge accommodates just 24 guests in twelve air-conditioned suites. Guests can enjoy the complete exclusivity of a private pool and game viewing deck.Singita Castleton Camp
is a sincerely inviting hideaway overlooking a well-frequented waterhole. Comprising a stone-walled ‘farmhouse’ and six charming rooms, this colonial homestead offers a welcoming ambience of understated luxury. Castleton Camp is booked as an exclusive retreat and can accommodate up to twelve guests at a time.Kruger National Park
Singita Kruger Park is situated where two rivers meet, in an exclusive game-rich 33 000 acres concession in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Boasting the highest 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.
Offering contemporary African chic, Singita Lebombo Lodge is a celebration of light and comfort with intrinsic touches that delight the senses. Structurally inspired by an eagle’s nest the 15 loft-style suites perch high above the N’wanetsi River. A spectacular cliffside pool offsets views of the Lebombo Mountain foothills.
Nestled low on the Sweni River, the more intimate Singita Sweni Lodge boasts six exclusive suites on the water’s edge. Expressing a distinctly avant-garde African style, the lush surroundings blend beautifully with Sweni’s charm.Wildlife
Both Sabi Sand Reserve and Kruger National Park are known for their exquisite beauty and large concentration of game, including the renowned ‘Big 5’ (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo).
When you venture into the wild in the company of Singita’s skilful guides, your sightings will be intimate and far from the madding crowds, ensuring that your safari is filled with unforgettable stories.
The Sabi Sand Reserve is bisected by the perennial Sand River, and game viewing is abundant in this part of the world. Groves of Acacia Thornveld and Marula trees give way to open expanses of grassland where zebra, antelope and wildebeest graze freely. The region is particularly famous for its big cat activity and leopard sightings.
Singita Kruger National Park is located on the Park’s eastern border with Mozambique and represents one of the few unspoilt territories in Africa where large prides of lion thrive. The rocky outcrops of the nearby Lebombo Mountain range provide a unique habitat for a range of species; including the famous Mountain Pride of lions.
