Singita Game Reserves – Kruger National Park
Singita offers an unrivalled wilderness experience and rare solitude … the ultimate in safari game viewing.
It’s renowned globally as ‘the best bush experience in Africa’ for its diversity and formidable concentration of big game.
Having been voted best hotel in the world over 15 times, Singita is a consistent winner of prestigious awards for service and cuisine, a member of Relais & Châteaux and a family-owned private concession.
Singita Sabi Sand borders the western side of the Kruger National Park within the Sabi Sand Reserve and is built on the banks of the Sand River – the world’s best leopard viewing area.
Singita Sabi Sand’s Ebony & Boulders lodges offer 12 suites each with wrap around views. Each lodge boasts a distinctive character, and all suites have private pools and game-viewing decks, spacious interiors with fireplaces, air conditioning plus overhead fans and luxurious en-suite bathrooms and outside showers.
Singita Kruger National Park is situated where two rivers meet, in an exclusive 33,000-acre concession on the eastern side of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Boasting the highest concentration of wildlife in the entire park, this is where Singita Kruger National Parks’ Lebombo & Sweni lodges are found, in a secluded and remote wilderness location, renowned for its lion prides and unique Euphorbia trees.
All lodges offer the full array of safari activities – morning and evening game drives in specially adapted open vehicles, with professional guides and trackers, night drives with spot lamps to view nocturnal species. Bush walks can also be arranged, with the chance to view animal and birdlife close up.
Meals are always a special occasion. Enjoy a fine dining experience with Pan African cuisine and South Africa’s finest wines either on a dining deck, in an African boma (a protected enclosure) under the starry night sky, or in a spectacular bush setting.
Contemporary and airy, Singita Boulders is inspired by the rough natural geometry of the boulders around which it was built. The lookout deck offers the perfect spot to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River.
While Singita Ebony is the epitome of elegant comfort, with colonial-styled rooms and an eclectic mix of colours, fabrics and textures.
From the vast wooden deck, 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.

Like the Euphorbia tree after which it was named, Singita Lebombo‘s design is one of a kind. From the sweeping wooden decks, you can watch the theatre that unfolds before you, while the lap pool beckons to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. Within its 15 suites children over 10 are welcome, while no age restriction applies in any of the other lodges.
In a tranquil sanctuary flanking the Sweni River, 6 secluded suites are elevated on stilts with decks of timber. Singita Sweni‘s tactile furnishings bring in the textures and shades of the bush while open-plan design creates a flow from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom yet 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 the viewing deck.
