Overview

Offered by the Singita group, Castleton is an exclusive lodge that can be booked privately for up to 12 people. Designed as a farmhouse and set within 45,000 acres of private game reserve, Castleton is perfect for families or groups of friends looking for a private safari experience of exceptional quality.

Castleton is an exclusive camp providing around the clock service to your group. A collection of staff are on hand to cater to all your needs and ensure the best possible bush experience. The camp is made up of a large farmhouse and six detached cottages housing twelve guests. The stone farm house is the communal area and includes a large formal dining area, lounge and outdoor boma as well as your own pool, gym, spa treatment room and tennis court on site. Paths then connect the communal area to the six private cottages. Each cottage is individually decorated and retains its own character and charm. All en-suite, the rooms are spacious and elegant with country furniture and luxurious beds.

The reserve is ‘Big Cat country’ as well as being home to the ‘Big Five’ providing a remarkable amount of wildlife year round. A private Land Rover with professional guide and tracker allows you to set your own schedule and tailor your safari to your needs and interests. Game drives and walking safaris are the focus and can be organised as often as you wish. The property directly overlooks a watering hole, easily seen from the boma, meaning you need to venture no further than the lawn to continue spotting the wildlife of the bush. Optional cooking and baking classes, fishing and spa treatments can also be enjoyed.

Children of all ages are welcome. There are babysitting services available (to be booked in advance) and tailor-made activities to suit each family. For the interest of safety, childrens’ participation in game activities is at the discretion of your guide

Castleton is an unbeatable way to experience an African Safari as part of a big group and if you have the numbers to fill it, can be surprisingly good value. This is a luxurious stay in a real African homestead and is a perfect getaway for families, events or groups of friends.

  • A fabulous and memorable holiday to Africa and a big thank you to Lisa at Tourdust for her in depth knowledge and for designing our once in a lifetime trip.

    The original thoughts were to stay in Cape Town and then go on safari. After many discussions and a lot of patience from Lisa we settled on Capetown, a safari in Botswana and Victoria Falls. It turned out to be the most special and amazing holiday that we have been on.

    Cape Town accommodation was great, modern, clean, spacious and close to the V&A. The views at the back were of Table Mountain! We opted for guided tours to Cape of Good Hope and whale watching. Our guide called Chris was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and chatted to us alot and was great with my children.

    Next was Botswana and Muchenje Lodge. The location was fantastic with views over the Chobe river. Right from the start we were looked after so well and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We went on lots of different safari drives from early morning, late evening and all day ones and my favourite was on the river itself as we were able to get really close to the elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Our guides were brilliant (particularly Rambo) and helped us to find all the animals we wanted to see, even the elusive wild dogs and leopards.
    Meals were at set times, which was lovely as it meant we could talk to the other guests and hear about their day and it was nice that some of the guides joined us as well. We also loved the singing and dancing that the staff did after one meal.

    Final destination Zambia and Victoria Falls, where we stayed at Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi. An amazing location right on the river bank.
    We did a guided tour to Victoria Falls and yet again we had a brilliant tour guide.
    From our lodge we did a river cruise, saw a magnificent sunset and we tried our hand at fishing which was great fun.

    I would love to go back to Africa again to visit some other countries and I will definitely use Tourdust again. Thank you so much Lisa.

  • Service rating : Brian and Lisa made sure everything was taken care of on our South African trip. We didn't have to worry about anything, but showing up and enjoying our trip. Thank you, Tourdust!
    Product : We has a great time and everything met our expectations.

    Ben feefo reviewer verified review for Cape Town & Kruger Safari on 19 September 2016

  • We had a fantastic trip thanks to your organisation! No problems encountered at all! Simbavarti were a joy to stay and explore with; the hotel in Capetown perfectly positioned to allow us to walk to the conference, and Camps bay accommodation was just lovely. The flights, transfers and staff we met along the way we're all very friendly and helpful. Having a car at the end was a perfect finale. My 10 yr old daughter came home with new insights on the world.
    I had been meaning on my return to email you, but launched straight back into a weekend oncall and business as usual, so thanks for emailing.
    I have sung your praises to friends and family!
