It has been 25 years of welcoming guests to Africa, but more importantly, 25 years of conserving precious, iconic pieces of land so that future generations may also experience the wonders of the African wilderness.
To celebrate this huge milestone Singita’s launched a promotion which gives guests a glimpse at its heritage as well as its future.
Singita Ebony Lodge stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa’s ‘big cat country.’ The lodge takes safari design and style to a new level with a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge, combining tented camp and bush lodge style. Guests are immersed in nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom.
And, tucked away in Kruger National Park region in South Africa on the banks of the Sweni River, Singita Sweni Lodge is a hidden jewel that provides a bold, new African context for contemporary design. With its proximity to the river, guests at Sweni Lodge are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in the river.
