Singita continues to maintain its worldwide repute as one of the World’s finest and most exclusive safari companies. Singita Lebombo and its sister camp, Singita Sweni, are located in a private 15,000ha concession in the central Kruger National Park (and are collectively known as Singita Kruger). The lodge lies in the foothills of the Lebombo mountains which form the eastern edge of the Kruger National Park.
Designed with style and sophistication, the suites sit perched like eagle’s nests, cantilevered out from the rock face with views to the ancient Lebombo mountains. Floor to ceiling glass walls ensure that you have a 360° view of the bushveld. The 15 suites are very modern –with much use of white, funky glass chandeliers and stylish furniture. There’s a decadent open plan bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a large game-viewing deck with your own day bed. Other amenities include air-conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, safe and telephone.
The public areas at Singita Lebombo are open to the elements and very glamorous with cutting-edge contemporary style which fuses glass, slatted wood and bleached branches with natural, textured fabrics and modern glass chandeliers. There’s an overwhelming sense of space here yet also a feeling of being part of the surrounding bush.
Safari activities at Singita Lebombo
Singita Lebombo offers excellent game-viewing with the emphasis placed on viewing large herds of plains game rather than on individual predator sightings. Nevertheless Singita Kruger is particularly known for its excellent lion sightings with two large prides roaming their private concession. Given the varying terrain between the central Kruger and the private game reserves of the Sabi Sands, you might like to combine two nights here with two nights at Singita Ebony or Singita Boulders…
Singita Lebombo is also unusual in that it offer a range of active safari activities as well as 4×4 game drives. Enjoy a bush walk with an armed ranger, game-viewing on mountain bikes and even a spot of archery.
The cuisine at Singita Lebombo is a definite highlight and dining takes place in a variety of settings: in their star lit boma, the unusual indoor/outdoor dining area or in the seclusion of your room. There’s a fully stocked wine cellar with informal wine-tasting presentations offered by Singita’s resident sommelier.
The Singita Trading Post offers stylish African craft boutiques and a gallery showing leading South African artworks, as well as a well-equipped gym and Spa. Huge glass walls bring the bush feel right into the gym and spa with its range of treatment rooms, steam room and outdoor shower. A perfect way to spend a couple of hours in between game drives.
