Singita Sabi Sand
Singita Sabi Sand offers rare solitude and the ultimate in safari luxury on prime game viewing land recognised globally for its diversity and formidable concentration of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Guests can choose between three unfenced lodges, infused with the glamour and elegance of Singita.
Singita Ebony Lodge Accommodation
Ebony Lodge has a commanding presence and an essence that evokes an intense feeling of familiarity - as if visiting a congenial family home. Sumptuous coziness is simply the order of the day - tempting you into relaxation and reflection.
The secluded thatched suites are the epitome of elegant comfort, with rooms styled with an eclectic mix of colours, fabrics and textures. A colonial feel with Egyptian linen, African throws, antiques and modern luxuries combine to create a homely, lived-in feel. From the vast wooden deck to the pool overlooking the Sand River, it’s not uncommon to see elephant, buffalo and antelope grazing only metres away at any time of day. Perhaps this is where the notion of an ‘armchair safari’ was perfected...
Singita Ebony Lodge offers twelve suites, all with their own en suite bathroom and shower, outside shower, heated private swimming pool, double-sided fireplace, mini bar and fridge, room mini safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, private lounge, direct dial telephones and game-viewing deck.
Singita Boulders Lodge Accommodation
Boulders Lodge has a contemporary air of tranquillity that honours Africa in an authentic way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an enormous boulder that sat right in the middle of the place where the wine cellar was to be built. A simple decision was made to build the cellar around the boulder! Guests can enjoy wrap-around views from most parts of the natural stone lodge, and the lookout deck offers the perfect spot from which to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The quiet pond alongside the thatched lounge area allows the light and the landscape inside to the wide open spaces, where straw baskets, neutral shades and textured fabrics complement wooden furniture.

Singita Sabi Sand Wildlife
In the Sabi Sand you’ll witness a variety of game-viewing, often with fascinating predator interaction, be it during the golden light of day or while on a starlight spot-lit safari.
The Sand River engraves her way through the property and among the riverine flora is where the elsewhere elusive leopards lurk… We are very privileged to enjoy frequent leopard sightings – and because of the caution and respect we’ve shown these alluring cats over the years we’re now able to observe them at close range, as most are unfazed by our presence. They treat us from time to time to their camouflaged concealment, extraordinary hunting skills and the difficulties and delights of raising playful cubs and teaching them survival skills.
In addition to this the Sabi Sand reserve is recognized globally for its diversity of game. Your team of a knowledgeable guide and intuitive tracker will do their utmost to ensure you see a broad spectrum of this balanced ecosystem. Highlights might include prides of lions, parades of elephants, crashes of white rhinos, herds of buffaloes, dazzles of zebras, clans of hyenas, harems of impalas, journeys of giraffes, businesses of mongooses, cheetah, a glimpse of wild dogs, baboons trooping past your suite – to mention just a few!
The opportunities for world-class wildlife photography on this Singita-owned property are unrivaled. The animals are found in a relatively close concentration and the potential to safely advance for quality sightings and images are often available.
The different habitats from open grassland to dense bush and ancient trees attract a vast array of bird life too. You’ll receive a checklist with over 400 species listed for this area alone.
But above all you’ll discover a place where time is in tune with nature’s rhythm. A place where you can rest and reconnect with the earth – this cradle of mankind. It’s a place where the fluttering of a butterfly is as fascinating as the flight of an eagle, where a blade of grass sparkling with dew is as beautiful as the sheen of a leopards coat and where the silence and soft scented air erase irrelevant stresses and strains.
The Singita Sabi Sand experience is an authentic one. There are no fences and the animals are free to roam unhindered in this enormous conservancy. We do however guarantee you a dedicated team, so with a dash of luck you will return home with a wealth of memories.
