Accommodation

Singita Ebony Lodge has nine beautifully appointed double suites set in shady woodland above the Sand River. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom, complete with shower, outdoor shower, a double-sided fireplace, air-conditioning, private leisure deck with pool and living area. There is an outdoor “boma” and swimming pool. In the Lodge at Ebony, you will encounter the quiet opulence of African colonial style at its most refined.

From the cool and sumptuous folds of a leather sofa, you'll watch a Giraffe browse on a distant acacia, or you yourself may browse from the extensive library in the quiet of the afternoon. Set in the dappled shade of Ebony trees on the banks of the Sand River, the suites at Ebony are completely private, cool and spacious, and each with its own plunge pool. Each suite is individually designed with traditionally understated elegance, providing a luxurious refuge that will quickly become your home. On the deck, you may spend time alone in reflection, or enjoy a gourmet dinner for two in the most romantic of settings.

Activities / Wildlife

Africa's Big Five Game Animals: an Adventurer's Dream Destination! Singita has abundant wildlife, with a higher bio-mass of animals per hectare than the internationally renowned Kruger National Park. The park has a tremendous trove of wildlife treasures with the crown jewels being Africa's fearsome big five: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino. For guests wanting private drives, Landrovers can be hired. The nocturnal safaris open up a totally new world and a powerful spotlight illuminates the shy and sometimes rare wildlife.

This is Africa's big game terrain, so your days and early nights will blissfully revolve around spectacular game viewing drives in Landrovers. Driving in open safari Landrovers allows for panoramic vision of the bush. Only six people are permitted per vehicle, leaving space for photographic and binocular equipment. On night safaris, when the heat of the day has subsided, the predators such as lion, leopard, hyena, black backed jackal and the owls start their hunting. Drinks are served in the bush at sunset as a gentle introduction to the nocturnal bush. At Singita you can witness a spectacular lion kill, then wait for the spotted hyena to arrive. Undisturbed, a giraffe gives birth, lions mate, cubs suckle, a gigantic tree is toppled by an elephant.
