Singita, in the Sabi Sand Reserve, is a world-renowned section of African wilderness adjacent to the Kruger National Park. No fences exist between Sabi and Kruger, and the lie of the land is well-suited to game viewing, with open expanses of grassland and groves of acacia thornveld.
Singita Boulders Lodge lies in the heart of this private reserve, on the banks of the Sand River. The lodge is built in a unique and contemporary style, inspired by the rough natural geometry of the rocks around it. Large timber decks overlook the surrounding bush, where monkeys play in the trees and herds of elephant occasionally wander by.
Days at the lodge start early, just as the sky begins to lighten. You can view game at sunrise and sunset from open safari vehicles, accompanied by a professional game ranger and skilled Shangaan tracker. Radio contact brings you reports of the latest game sightings, increasing your chance of spotting the Big 5. The Sabi Sand Reserve has a well-earned reputation for excellent leopard sightings.
The rest of the day is yours at leisure to go on a guided game walk, relax in a steam bath or visit the local village. Singita’s health consultant can arrange a massage on your private deck, or in the health spa. At dusk, a ranger escorts you safely from your suite to the open-air boma (reeded enclosure), for pre-dinner drinks around a log fire.
