Singita Lebombo Lodge is a celebration of cutting-edge design in an African context where everything defers to nature.
At Singita Lebombo Lodge, fifteen one-bedroom lofts are magnificently perched on the cliffs giving their guests spectacular views over the landscape and river below. Superbly built out of wood, steel and glass, they give the atmosphere of a tree-house, only fitted with all the luxury and amenities required for comfort. Many of the interior and exterior features are of organic material, which adds greatly to the remote and wilderness feel of the lodge. A contemporary style has been used for the decoration of each loft, with artistic use of slatted wood, bleached branches and glass, along with fabrics that are of natural colours and beautiful textures. Stunning wooden decks with lap pools surround the lofts. Inside each loft is a mini bar and fridge, an en-suite bathroom with a bath and indoor and outdoor shower, and air conditioning, while further facilities are available at the main lodge. These facilities include a swimming pool, gym and spa, a boutique and television. The boutique sells fascinating local artworks and rare South African wine. Nearby is also the colourful Singita Cooking School, which is a wonderful, cultural experience.
Guests will be offered full American-style breakfasts, fine wines from the Singita Cellars with every meal, a traditional afternoon tea service, game drives, opportunities to track rare wildlife species, bush walks and jogging and biking trails. The Singita Lebombo Lodge with its creatively elevated position on the mountainside is environmentally conscious, ‘touching the earth lightly’, and is named after the Lebombo Euphorbia tree – which is the inspiration behind its organic decorations. The lodge is often described as the perfect African bush experience.
Lebombo consists of 15 x 1-bedroom suites. All suites are en-suite with an inside and outside shower, bath, mini bar and fridge, room safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, direct dial telephones and game viewing deck with a day bed. All the suites have direct dial telephones.
A safari makes for an unforgettable family holiday, with exhilarating activities for the entire family to enjoy, memories made together that will last a lifetime and opportunities to learn and grow together. Singita Lebombo Lodge welcomes guests ages ten and above.
The 15 x 1 bedroom suites – each suite can accommodate a twin bed for a child or young person.
Activities at the lodges are tailored specifically to suit the interests and desires of each family and babysitting services are available. In the interest of safety, participation of children in any game activities is at the discretion of their guide.
Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals. Game drives are all conducted in state-of-the-art Land Rovers, each accommodating a maximum of six guests. During your stay at Singita Sabi Sand, you are likely to spot a great variety of wildlife including leopard, lion, rhino, large herds of buffalo, elephant, reedbuck, hyena, hippopotamus, nyala, cheetah, wild dogs and many species of birds.
Guided Safari Walks
Walking safaris are an incredible way to experience the bush up close and personal. Your expert guide and tracker will accompany you as you track animals on foot through the wilderness and explore the magnificent plants and landscapes around you. Or, for the adventurous guest, a mountain bike ride through the reserve just can’t be beat. Your guide and tracker will accompany you as you explore the vast beauty of this rugged landscape. Mountain bikes and helmets are provided.
Not your regular curio shop, you will find original treasures that have been gathered from all corners of the African continent. A range of collectable sculptures, home-ware and furnishings will allow you to recreate ‘the safari dream’ within your own home. Artefacts, as well as authentic carvings and jewellery created by local craftsmen are just a few of the treasures you may find to take home as gifts.
Premier Wine Boutique
Singita’s cellars are home to some of the most sought-after private reserves and vintage wines the country has to offer. Whether you are a connoisseur or just enjoy the occasional glass of wine, their experienced sommeliers delight in introducing guests to a vast selection of varietals from all over the world.
Water is a source of life and beauty, and no place is this more apparent than in the remote tranquility of the African bush. Fishing in one of the picturesque dams found on the reserve is the ideal way to experience this wonder firsthand. Drop in a lure and see what bounty the day will bring, while your guide and tracker show you how the locals catch fish using plants found in the area.
There is perhaps no more transcendent experience than looking up at a full sky of sparkling stars. Man has had a love affair with the nighttime sky for centuries and with very little pollution and no city lights to detract from the stars, your view of the heavens here will be crystal clear – nothing between you and the vast African sky above.
Spend a morning taking lessons from your guide on how to shoot with a bow and arrow.
