Singita Ebony Lodge, Sabi Sands

Singita offer the ultimate luxurious African safari from two spectacular lodges on prime ‘Big 5’ game viewing land. Located on the Sand River in Singita Private Game Reserve, an exclusive 18,000 hectare (45,000 acres) sanctuary adjoining the renowned Kruger National Park, each has their own distinctive character and charm. Game drives feature frequent leopard sightings as well as encounters with rhino, lion, buffalo, hippos and wild dogs.


Romantically set in dappled shade amongst enormous ebony trees on the banks of the Sand River, Ebony Lodge was inspired by the charm of colonial explorers’ camps. It has 12 luxurious suites (some suitable for families) immersed in nature, with a plunge pool, glass and canvas walls and a deck suspended above the river.


Inspired by the ancient boulders on which it rests, Boulders Lodge is at the forefront of contemporary African design, with decks and walkways engaging with the surrounding wilderness. Each of the 12 glass-fronted suites has a fireplace, private deck, outdoor shower and a heated pool and both lodges have their own dedicated spa and gym.

Susie suggests:

  • Take a game drive at night with a spotlight to spot nocturnal animals
  • Ebony Lodge has a secluded, fully-staffed exclusive-use villa with two suites for families.
  • Don’t miss a tasting at the award-winning wine cellar in Boulder Lodge, built around the rocks.
  • Enjoy a restorative Terre d’Afrique spa treatment on your private deck at Ebony Lodge.
