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.
Luxury Spa & Health Center
Singita's luxury spa offers a range of quality
professional treatments, from a full body massage on the
deck of your suite to acupuncture & chiropractic with highly
experienced practitioners. The health spa facility at
Boulders Lodge offers facials, a range of beauty treatments
and massages combining the ancient arts of Oriental
acupressure, Ayurveda and traditional European massage.
Guests to the lodge, and its sister establishment, Ebony
Lodge, can enjoy the option of either using the spa directly
or having therapists visit their suites for private beauty
treatments on the pool deck. In the fully equipped health
center, you may keep up your fitness regime with the
assistance of the lodge's personal trainer or the more
adventurous athlete might go for a guarded jog through the
bush. A steam room is also available.
Singita's executive chef has worked in the food capitals
of the globe, and brings this international experience to
the superb ingredients he finds in Africa. Guests at Singita

cool rock below Boulders, the cellar boasts a truly unique
and comprehensive cross section of over 12,000 bottles of
South African and International wines.
Here the most comprehensive collection of original
merchandise imaginable has been assembled: jewelry crafted
by hand from Africa's precious metals and gems; sculpture
for the discerning investor; elegant fashion inspired by the
beauty of the bush and quality outdoor gear; African music;
limited edition photographic prints; home wear. All of this
you may take in, over a cappuccino, in a store with a view
to the distant African horizon.
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
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.
