Named for the way it was creatively built around a massive boulder overlooking the Sand River, Singita Boulders Lodge was inspired by the extraordinary natural beauty of its location, the world-famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Blending harmoniously into the natural environment, this elegant lodge reflects both the tranquility and energy of this wild region, where guests explore one of the greatest wildlife areas on the planet.

Wildlife Viewing & Activities

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is duly famous the world over for its exceptionally abundant and diverse wildlife. Guests at the exclusive Singita Boulders Lodge enjoy a front-row seat on all the action in this truly wild corner of Africa. The region is particularly famous for its big cats. Frequent, up-close encounters with leopards are common in the riverine forests that fringe the Sand River as it weaves its way through the property. Day and night drives in 4x4 safari vehicles may reveal prides of lion, herds of buffalo, dazzles of zebra, journeys of giraffe, parades of elephant, clans of hyena, crashes of rhino, and possibly even a glimpse of an elusive pack of wild dogs. The diversity of habitats here attracts a vast array of birdlife as well, with more than 400 species recorded. And for those with an interest in African culture, an impromptu visit to the neighboring villages is an essential experience.

The Sabi Sand is known for great leopard viewing, healthy rhino populations and the rest of the Big Five, making it a great wildlife destination for all levels of safari experience. The below chart helps to illustrate major wildlife sightings often experienced here. Other typical sightings may include warthogs, baboons and a number of other mammals, birds and reptiles. Exact sightings will depend on weather and wildlife movements.

Singita Boulders Lodge supports the Singita Community Development Trust Fund, a pioneering community development program funded by Singita, donations from guests, and revenues generated from community tours. The fund delivers tangible benefits to local communities, including significant financial support for underfunded schools, many of which are educating the children of Singita staff. Singita also supports the Tshemba Hosi Care Center, which provides care for 100 physically and mentally disabled children. In addition, Singita is deeply invested in the training and professional development of its 200 staff members, most of whom are from nearby villages. Toward this end, it has established its own in-house Field Guide and Tracker Training Academy, which offers a comprehensive 6-month training program. Singita is also deeply committed to operating in an environmentally sensitive and sustainable manner and has received numerous awards and accolades for its efforts. By restricting the number of guests it accommodates, pressure on the land and wildlife is greatly minimized in the reserve.
