Singita Ebony Lodge Suite - Singita Private Game Reserve
Ebony Lodge has a commanding presence and an essence that evokes an intense feeling of familiarity - as if visiting a congenial family home. Sumptuous coziness is simply the order of the day - tempting you into relaxation and reflection. The secluded thatched suites are the epitome of elegant comfort, with rooms styled with an eclectic mix of colours, fabrics and textures. A colonial feel with Egyptian linen, African throws, antiques and modern luxuries combine to create a homely, lived-in feel. From the vast wooden deck to the pool overlooking the Sand River, it’s not uncommon to see elephant, buffalo and antelope grazing only metres away at any time of day. Perhaps this is where the notion of an ‘armchair safari’ was perfected...

Singita Boulders Lodge River Suite - (8 Double/Twin Unit Units)

Singita Boulders Lodge River Suite - Singita Private Game Reserve
Boulders Lodge has a contemporary air of tranquillity that honours Africa in an authentic way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an enormous 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 perfect spot from which to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The quiet 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.

Singita Lebombo Lodge Suite - 15 Double/Twin Unit

Singita Lebombo Lodge Suite - Singita Private Game Reserve

From the sweeping wooden decks, you can watch the theatre that unfolds before you, while the lap pool beckons to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. The fifteen suites feature contemporary 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.
Features Available

Double/Twin

Singita Sweni Lodge Suite - Double/Twin Unit

Singita Sweni Lodge Suite - Singita Private Game Reserve
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 you’re indoors, you’ll have the sensation of being close to the river and trees. The six secluded suites, with tactile furnishings, have been carefully created to bring in the textures and shades of the bush.
Features Available

Designed with open-plan living in mind, your suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom – yet if you wish, each area may be sealed off by curtains. Try the outdoor shower overlooking the river or – for a magical experience – ‘camp out’ under the stars on the day bed out on your viewing deck.

Cuisine
South Africa, a country of diverse cultures and cosmopolitan influences, inspires the unique culinary experience at Ebony and Boulders Lodges, and Castleton Camp. Juxtaposing global cuisine with traditional African ingredients, Singita's style combines simplicity with an abundance of flavour. Excellent produce, well prepared and presented, is accompanied by truly inspirational surroundings.
Complementing the exceptional cuisine, each Singita lodge has a unique and comprehensive wine cellar. Singita's wine program consists of approximately 35,000 bottles of the finest South African wines. Newly released red wines are matured in our temperature-controlled Cape Town cellar for up to 5 years, to ensure that they reach full potential.

Cuisine at Lebombo and Sweni
Guests at Singita Lebombo encounter something truly original: a cuisine inspired by African flavours and yet guided by the Western culinary tradition.
The dining experience is light and rustic, enhanced by the sublime natural setting. In summer, warm days are complemented with chilled fruity soups and refreshing sorbets. Iced yoghurt smoothies amplify the senses before setting out on safari. Healthy vegetable salsas and homemade pickles accompany salads and flame-grilled meats. Local ingredients enrich the flavours. Enjoy dishes such as Springbok fillets with a fresh papino, dill and ginger relish. Scoop indigenous peppadews onto a mixed green salad. Dunk homemade breads into African aubergine pate. Relish South African cheeses with a glass of crisp Cape wine. Snack on roasted corn nuts and venison biltong while on a game drive.
The cooler winter evenings are warmed with delights such as African peanut butter and butternut soup, perhaps followed by kudu loin, served on sweetcorn fritters with a chunky mushroom, thyme and leek sauce. Dine under the stars in the glow of a boma fire, while an array of grilling meats and vegetables scent the air.
In the morning, build up the kind of appetite that only the fresh African air can. Start with homemade granola and personalize it with your choice of cut fruits. Snack on a freshly baked croissant as the chefs prepare your omelette in front of you. Or have an adventurous morning and sample of the breakfast specials, like the poached egg with smoked springbok on a toasted English muffin with tarragon cream.
On departure from the lodge, request a packed picnic. Unwrap a fresh chocolate and hazelnut muffin, enjoy succulent sandwiches, savour fresh fruits and reflect on the miracle that is Singita.
We have menus that cater to both the adventurous and more conservative tastes and all special dietary requirements can be accommodated. Whether you are vegetarian, gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant or have special religious dietary requirement, we will accommodate your needs - please let us know in advance.

Cuisine at Ebony and Boulders
Ebony Lodge's roots are founded in our Colonial past. Breakfasts and luncheons are enjoyed on the lower deck overlooking the Sand River and African savanna. Freshly baked breads and pastries and cut seasonal fruit adorn the buffet in traditionally carved wooden bowls and clay moulded platters. After a thrilling early morning game drive, enjoy delectable eggs Benedict with a twist of biltong and chilli-infused hollandaise, or perhaps a berry and yogurt Brule for those that prefer something lighter.
Boulders Lodge is modern, contemporary Africa, which is reflected in the cuisine. Fusions of Asian, pan-African and modern European flavors and textures are primary influences. On a balmy African evening, delight the palette with a chilled watermelon and red pepper gazpacho followed by chermoula marinated tiger prawns with avocado salsa. For the more adventurous, sample the fillet of ostrich with a cinnamon espresso jus.
Castleton offers the discerning traveller exclusivity par excellence, with a private chef to introduce you to traditional home-style cooking. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the watering hole, tea can be enjoyed with Aunty Dolly's melk tert, koeksisters and her decadent chocolate brownies.
Enjoy a Bush breakfast in the shade of the Marula trees or dine in quiet luxury under the Southern Cross in the light of the moon.
Menus are tailor-made to cater to your needs and desires, with romantic private dinners in your suite. The warmth of the Boma fire and the singing of the Shangaan choir is the perfect backdrop to Haute Cuisine Africa Style.

Wellness
The epitome of every stay at Singitas lodges is the luxurious care one indulges in at the health spa.

Wildlife
Sabi Sands Reserve
The Sabi Sands gets its name the perennial Sand River that bisects the reserve and the fine, sandy substrate found throughout. Globally renowned for its diversity and concentration of big game, the Sabi Sands features broad, open savannah interspersed with acacia thornveld, rocky outcrops and riverine forest.
Herds of buffalo and elephant, large prides of lion, majestic leopard and antelope by the thousands make the 18 500 hectare Singita Private Game Reserve, at the heart of the Sabi Sands, one of the finest locations for viewing the Big 5 anywhere in the world.

Lebombo Concession
The Lebombo Concession adds an exciting new dimension to the Singita wildlife experience. Located in the Kruger National Park's southeast, on the border with Mozambique, Lebombo represents one of the few remaining unexplored territories of this celebrated wildlife sanctuary. The Lebombo mountain range runs diagonally across the expanse, interlaced by the N'wanetsi and Sweni Rivers. The rangers testify that the area holds the highest densities of game they've seen anywhere, including a wealth of Big 5, abundant antelope and birdlife, and an incredible diversity of smaller animals.
