Into the Heart of ‘Big Cat Country’
Here, wide-open spaces form the background for a veritable parade of wildlife—big game casually saunter past while you dine. This is all to the credit of Singita Ebony (the original Singita Lodge) that functions under an ethos of conservation and sustainability, overseeing nearly one million acres of unspoiled wilderness. Unpack in atmospheric lodgings evocative of the romance and adventure of explorers that came before us: rich and familiar ebony and mahogany wood are in abundance, walls are plied with the artistry of local tribes—all whilst integrating a few beloved modern flourishes (think plunge-pools, all-glass walls)! One would be forgiven for thinking Singita Ebony is the cat’s meow.Spectacular Stays

Singita Ebony Lodge
Most Memorable Moment? Watching the elephants wander by from your room's private deck is an experience not easily forgotten.

Singita Ebony offers 12 safari-style suites. A modernized interpretation of the classic safari lodge means walls have been replaced by canvas and glass to maximise views and allow for a flood of light. All suites feature their own private plunge pool as well as an outdoor pavilion deck which is perched gingerly in the trees, overlooking the river bank.
