Safari travelers meander down this single dusty road into this the South African Safari experience of a life time. Many are overwhelmed by the scale, and the silence of this South African Safari landscape. Rangers who have walked on foot through the area, while on South African safari, say it has the largest concentration of game they¹ve seen in Kruger. These South African safari lodges rest lightly among the ancient boulders of the Lebombo mountains, overlooking the African plain where two rivers meet. Singita Lebombo has been described as the Jewel of the Kruger Park and a must while on South African Safari.

Safari in South Africa

Singita Lebombo offers discerning South African Safari guests an unrivalled wilderness experience on an exclusive 15,000-hectare concession on the remote eastern boundary of the Kruger National Park. The new lodge derives its name from the Lebombo mountain range and encompasses an area significantly different to that of the Singita Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand Reserve. It is the only game lodge accessible by air within Kruger and the spectacular scenery, varied landscape and large herds of game create a premier, diverse safari circuit connecting Singita Lebombo with the two existing Singita Ebony and Boulders lodges.

At Singita Lebombo, you will experience Africa - majestic, unfiltered and unadorned. You will look out from your timber and glass guest unit at the continent's vast canvas. Under a slatted roof, you will experience all the shades of Africa's shifting light. All-season indoor and outdoor areas offer spacious, elegant and luxurious refinement. Dine indoors or out whilst watching game traverse the vast open grassland.

Singita's private concession within the Kruger Park remains exclusive to Singita Lebombo guests.

Singita, which means “The Miracle” in the local Shangaan language, has four distinctive properties, all of which are members of Relais & Chateaux. The Cape Town based Singita group is regarded internationally as a forerunner in the luxury ecotourism market, constantly setting new standards for the ultimate African bush and wildlife experience. Singita is well known for its world class hospitality, stunning décor and excellent game viewing.  It is regarded by many to be the most luxurious lodge collection in Africa.

Lebombo Lodge
The lofts at Lebombo sit perched like eagles' nests among the cactus-like Euphorbia on the basalt cliff tops.  With sweeping views of the ancient Lebombo mountain range, the Sweni and N'wanetsi rivers entwine like glittering veins of gold far below.  Singita Lebombo is the culmination of the search for an idyllic location.

With ceiling to floor windows, the fifteen luxury suites blend beautifully with the landscape, each an expression of the surroundings.  Living space is expansive and exclusively furnished, indoors and outdoors fuse seamlessly in complete privacy.  Singita Lebombo is more than simply safari, it's a feeling that remains a part of you.  The fully air-conditioned suites have sweeping 360º views of the Lebombo mountains and surrounding bushveld.

The full-suite rooms are constructed primarily with glass and wood. They feature exceptional views and offer the premier facilities and amenities associated with the Singita's other properties. These include numerous ‘experiences within the experience’, including various dining and living areas, wine cellars, a fully equipped gymnasium and a state-of-the-art health spa with pool overlooking the confluence of the rivers.

Sweni Lodge
The new satellite Sweni Lodge is set nearby amongst some of Africa's starkest beauty.  Bathed in quiet intimacy at the shaded edge of the Sweni river, the six suites enjoy an opulently appointed lounge, a dining area and pool, with a classic safari feel through the use of African aftefacts, leather and khaki.

Sweni Lodge continues in the Singita tradition of creating a lifelong experience out of a journey to Africa.  From the food and fine wines to game drives and the simple silence the wilderness imparts, the voyage promises to eternally transform one's spirit.

Reminiscent of a village square, Singita Lebombo Village offers a peaceful interlude between game activities.  Browse at your leisure in the art gallery, explore the wine boutique or purchase the finest African jewelry, artefacts, clothing and accessories.

Trading Store at Singita:   Sourced from the finest sculptors, painters, craftsmen and designers that the continent has to offer, the Trading Store at Singita offers exceptional artwork imbued with the essence of Africa. 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.

Gym and Health Spa:   Nurture body, mind and spirit in the spectacular gym and health spa where massive glass walls perpetuate a sense of oneness with the serene surroundings.  The treatments include ancient Thai massage, hot stone therapy, African head massage and mineral salt scrubs.  The new spa has three treatment rooms, each with its own spectacular vista of the bush.  The state of the art gym has its own steam room and outside shower.  Practiced beauty therapists pamper with a range of body treatments in the spa or the privacy of your suite.

Dining & Wines
Cuisine is a central feature of the Singita Lebombo experience.  The celebrated executive chef fuses local ingredients and mode with a contemporary international style.  The emphasis is on wild tastes, grilled meats with fresh fruits and vegetables, wholesome and uncomplicated.  At Singita Lebombo, the food is prepared with a devotion to each guest's personal taste.

Dining takes place wherever the impulse leads, whether by the pool or in the seclusion of your room.  The 'silo' bush-cellar, with a choice of award-winning South African wines, offers the connoisseur an insight into the vineyard culture.

Your time at Singita is your own. While the lodge offers game drives and walks, and the finest big five game viewing in Southern Africa, Singita is distinguished by the wide range of activities its guests are free to enjoy at the lodges. Early morning and afternoon / spotlit evening game drives in open Land Rovers are offered daily, as well as guided bush walks.  Also on offer are: seasonal fishing, community tours, and archery.  Bush breakfasts and sunset cocktails may be arranged for you in some of the most scenic spots in the reserve, or you may dine on the privacy of your deck.

Lebombo's dedicated Bush Spa offers a comprehensive activity and personal treatment program, whilst the African Trading Store showcases Africa's finest and most exclusive clothing, artworks and decorative ware. Interact with Africa's surroundings from the camp's open LandRovers - or an optional walking safari - guided by the expert knowledge of experienced rangers and game trackers.

Highly trained and experienced rangers and trackers will introduce you to an Africa few have been privileged to see, while the lodge staff, headed up by internationally trained management and a highly sought-after executive chef will ensure that your stay is not simply pleasant but truly memorable.

The Lebombo Concession is exclusive to guests at Singita and lies within the boundaries of the world-renowned Kruger National Park.
The Lebombo mountain range which runs through the eastern section has a particular impact on the habitat, which is significantly distinct from the habitat at Singita's other properties in the Sabi Sand Reserve to the west. The land comprises foothills of the Lebombo range, and overlooks the Nwanetsi River at its confluence with the Sweni River and the savannah plains beyond. The area boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the entire Kruger National Park.

The Kruger Park is home to many prey species, and sightings of lion, leopard and even the elusive African Painted Dog are common. Time spent at Singita is time spent at the very heart of the African wilderness, in a place that grew out of the bushveld.
With no restricting fences between Sabi Sand and Kruger National Park, magical wildlife encounters in the open veld and the romantic ambience of the truly superb lodges of the Sabi Sand conspire to steal you away to a timelessness that will stay with you forever.
