Our Expert Says

While Kruger National Park offers some of Africa’s finest wildlife viewing, this opulent, award-winning lodge is a highlight as well. “Elegant” and “exclusive” are the words I choose to describe this property, a class leader in the art of the luxury safari.

Like the Lebombo Euphorbia tree after which it was named, Singita Lebombo Lodge is one of a kind. Spend an exhilarating morning on wildlife drives, then savor a quiet afternoon on one of several broad wooden decks, watching the theater of wild Africa unfold before your eyes. Afterward, cool off in the pool or cozy up with a novel in the library. Enjoy a candlelit dinner in the romantic outdoor boma before retiring to your private veranda for a nightcap, listening to the rustle of reeds as a herd of elephant lumbers by. Each of the 15 suites features beds dressed in the softest Egyptian cotton, en suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, air conditioning, overhead fans and wildlife-viewing decks with day beds—you can even sleep beneath the stars if you wish! The main lodge has an open lounge, comfortable bar, library with Internet and computer facilities, gym, health spa and well-stocked wine cellar.

Wildlife Viewing & Activities

Hidden in the Lebombo Mountains on the eastern side of Kruger National Park, the Singita Concession boasts some of the best wildlife viewing in all of Africa. Because the concession is comprised of four distinct habitats, it offers an exceptionally diverse and rewarding safari experience. Explore the region on twice-daily wildlife drives in the company of top professional guides and trackers, and on optional guided nature walks and mountain bike outings. The rocky outcroppings of the Lebombo Mountains provide a unique habitat for a wide range of species including the famously large prides of lions that rule this wild kingdom. Other species you are likely to encounter include elephant, buffalo, leopard, white rhino, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, hippo, wildebeest, kudu, and crocodile—to name but a few! Many real rarities can be found on the reserve as well, such as the elusive black rhino, sable antelope, serval, caracal and African wildcat.

Kruger National Park is a quintessential wildlife destination, featuring the Big Five and other big cats and large mammals. The below chart helps to illustrate major wildlife sightings often experienced in the area. 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.

The philosophy of ‘touching the Earth lightly’ infuses every dimension of Singita Lembobo Lodge, from the eco-friendly construction and operation of the property, to the extensive staff development and training programs designed to empower local people and enrich their communities. Singita Lembombo Lodge supports the Singita Community Development Trust Fund, a pioneering program funded by Singita and donations from its guests. The fund delivers tangible benefits, including significant financial support for underfunded schools, many of which are educating the children of Singita staff. In addition, the Singita School of Cooking provides local youth with the opportunity to develop professional culinary skills and the Singita Field Guide and Tracker Academy offers a comprehensive six-month training program that enables participants to pursue careers as professional safari guides. Singita also provides the base for operations of the African Wildlife Foundation's Leopard Research Project, which is paving important new ground in efforts to protect these charismatic big cats.
