Singita Ebony Lodge

Luxury Safari Lodge South Africa

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.

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

Thousands of people flock to the falls each year, but their namesake lodge is (almost) as majestic. Secluded, luxurious and tastefully appointed, it's the perfect base from which to explore.
