Representing the wild heart of South Africa’s Big Cat Country and bordering the famous Kruger National Park: Sabi Sands Game Reserve is every bit as breathtaking as its prestigious neighbour.

Return to the ebony-covered banks of the Sand River, and your gorgeous Singita Ebony Lodge awaits. The 12 spectacular dwellings are each a stunning example of timeless safari style and modern innovation. Elegant wooden and aged bronze textures and vintage campaign furniture blend with contemporary river-facing glass walls, horizon-view plunge pools and luxury amenities to beautiful effect. Pass lazy mornings spotting wildlife from your plunge pool or outdoor pavilion deck - suspended above the river bank as if hanging from the wild ebony and jackalberry canopy above. The two multi-room Family Suites are perfect for those with younger children, while families with teenagers are ideally suited to the adjacent Lewis suites.
Time not spent on safari can be passed visiting the African art gallery, library and gym, sipping champagne in your personal plunge pool or relaxing with an aromatic Pinda Wisa Massage in the Spa. Photographers of every level will appreciate the excellent range of wildlife Camera kits available to guests, and the one-on-one post-production advice offered upon return. Dreamlike meals are taken in an elevated dining area, which gazes over the glistening Sand River. In the evening, the open-air boma, bar and extensive wine cellar await. Singita boasts an award-winning collection of vintages and the resident sommeliers are more than happy to guide guests through the range of styles, years and cultivars.
