- Big Five
- Private Game Reserve
- Luxurious Living
- Great Facilities
Another of Singita’s properties in Sabi Sands, Boulders is very close to its sister camp Ebony but run completely separately. Equally luxurious and with the price tag to match, this is a top end choice but one that provides an unrivalled experience that is worth every penny.
Built around a giant boulder, as the name suggests, on the bank of the Sand River this is a chic, five star Lodge with 360 degree views and intimate wildlife experiences. The communal areas make the most of the stunning views with an open-sided lounge and look-out deck perfect places to catch wildlife drinking and bathing in the river below. A relaxing bar area, gym, spa and library are all available for guest use as well as a wine cellar for wine tasting and to complement exceptional dinners. The hospitality and professional service offered by the lodge is what it is famous for and it is the staff as much as the facilities that make Boulders such a luxurious establishment.
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 is split into 12 exclusive, glass fronted suites including two, double family suites. The rooms are beautifully furnished using natural colours and materials and are spacious and light. Game viewing is just as good from the comfort of your room with each suite boasting a private deck overlooking the river bed as well as a private heated plunge pool and outdoor showers. Inside, a double-sided fireplace warms the room and all modern amenities including wifi are present.
Children over the age of 10 are welcome at Singita Boulders. There are babysitting services available and tailor-made activities to suit each family. In the interest of safety, childrens’ participation in game activities is at the discretion of the guides.
Beautiful and with fantastic game viewing this is an unforgettable place to stay.

We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)
