Singita Boulders Lodge
Sabi Sand Game Reserve - a private 45,000+ acre reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park.
The original inspiration for Singita Boulders Lodge came from the geometry of the ancient, weathered boulders and the natural curve of the river bed near the lodge. Its design takes its cues from nature, incorporating charcoal and copper colors, and textures of the surrounding landscape, reflecting the four elements of earth, fire, air and water. The lodge blends seamlessly with the shifting light, shapes and moods of the environment, providing a soothing sanctuary for world-weary travellers craving a connection with nature.
Singita Lebombo Lodge
Positioned perfectly on a 33,000 acre exclusive use concession within the Kruger National Park.
Inspired by the African landscape, the design, which blends nature with tech, pushes the boundaries of safari style to the limit, while delivering the same light, space, openness and connection to the earth that guests have become accustomed to. Giving guests a front row seat to the 33,000 acre concession with 13 bold, contemporary, open-plan suites suspended above the N’Wanetsi River and a private villa on the river bank, this is the Kruger like never before.
