Property Details

Singita’s “Grand Dame,” Singita Ebony Lodge was Singita’s first lodge and still retains much of its original homey atmosphere within its colonial corridors. The sister property to Singita Boulders Lodge, Singita Ebony Lodge comprises 12 sumptuous suites that represent a contemporary interpretation on the classic safari lodge, combining both the tented camp and bush lodge styles. Beneath thatched roofs, external walls have been replaced by canvas and glass to maximize views and space and allow guests to be fully immersed in the surrounding nature. The interiors are more than generous and full of the bold colors and textures of Africa creating a lived-in, almost nurturing feeling one expects from home. Among the host of luxurious amenities, including a romantic double-sided fireplace and a luscious soaking bathtub in the living area, perhaps the best is the private deck and heated swimming pool attached to each suite. Guests also have the option of enjoying a shower indoors or outside in the en-suite bath.

Located on the Sand River, Singita Ebony Lodge presents expansive views up onto the river from its spacious timber decks. As guests look out at the elephant graze and drink along the water’s edge, they will certainly have a feeling of timeless ownership over this little piece of the world. Singita Ebony Lodge also has a relaxing health spa and fitness center located in the main lodge, as well as a breezy open boma for fireside meals and community performances. Food at Singita Ebony Lodge is an uncomplicated yet beautiful display of what one might expect from their mother’s kitchen, all paired with the finest wines from Singita’s illustrious cellars.

This region of the Sabi Sand is known for delivering a trove of high-impact game activity. Guests of Singita Ebony Lodge have the benefit of setting out in open Land Rovers in search of the Sabi Sand Reserve’s amazing game, including the Big Five and some of the best leopard viewing in South Africa. No matter the activity, Singita Ebony Lodge is all about the individualized experience, whether an adults-only romantic retreat or a family-friendly holiday with a home-away-from-home feel.
