Singita has five superlative lodges to choose from in South Africa, all very different in style.
Within Sabi Sand are Singita Castleton, Singita Ebony Lodge and Singita Boulders Lodge, while in the nearby Kruger National Park is Singita Lembombo Lodge and Singita Sweni Lodge.
Singita Ebony is the original "super-lodge", the more authentic and rustic in style, and to this day it remains one of the most luxurious and exclusive safari accommodations in Africa.
A few minutes away, Singita Boulders is a synthesis of the classical and contemporary, furnished in natural tones. Less than an hour away is Singita Lebombo and Sweni; completely different to anything the Kruger has seen before.
Ebony and Boulders have just 12 uniquely furnished, air-conditioned suites apiece, set in shaded woodland. All are furnished with a four-poster bed, an enormous en suite bathroom and living areas with double-sided fire, private decks and plunge pools. Ebony has little touches like paper and paints should you feel inspired by your surrounds. Boulder's suites are fronted in glass providing spectacular views over the river and African plains beyond.
Singita Lebombo is extremely modern and oozes ethnic designer chic. Some 21 open-plan suites split between Lebombo and Sweni Lodges, are housed in elevated glass lofts high in the hillside, offering unrivalled views of the rivers below. There are plenty of sociable alfresco areas near the pool where you can relax on designer furniture, surrounded by abstract glass sculpture - rather different to traditional bomas!
Each lodge has first class facilities including wine cellars and spas and offers exceptional gourmet cuisine, as you would expect from Relais & Châteaux lodges.
