Overview

Singita is a well renowned brand for providing super luxurious safari experiences. All their properties are top of the range and Ebony Lodge is the founding property. Located in the Singita private game reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, it is an area famous for its abundant wildlife.

The camp unfurls on the banks of the sand river, shaded by enormous jackalberry trees. The centre of camp is beautifully laid out and offers everything you could need. A large decking area with a fireplace leads down to a secluded pool that is complemented by a gym, spa and library all situated with brilliant views of the bush. A wine cellar and in house sommelier also makes for a fantastic dining experience.

The reserve is known as ‘Big cat country’ and the opportunity to see so many species as well as the ‘Big Five’ is a rare one. Game drives are taken twice daily by some of the best guides in the area as well as regular walking safaris. With Ebony and Boulders being the only two lodges in the reserve you are guaranteed exclusivity and privacy. For those feeling active, mountain biking and archery can also be organised.

The accommodation here is exclusive, comprising of only 12 suites. Each en-suite room has its own private plunge pool and outdoor shower, a large game viewing deck and a fireplace to warm up in front of in the winter months. Perhaps not quite as modern as surrounding Singita properties, the furnishing makes use of local and traditional materials and fabrics producing a more colonial feel. Thanks to its reopening in July 2015 after extensive refurbishment, the front wall of each suite is now a mixture of canvas and glass bringing guests closer to the wild. There are also two double family suites available for those travelling with children.

Children are welcome and childcare is available on request. As there are no set age restrictions, their participation in any game activities is at the guide’s discretion.

The impeccable service and style Singita is known for is still integral to the Ebony Lodge today and it makes a great choice for those looking for the most luxurious base for a great safari.

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
