Singita Lebombo Lodge looks out over the N’wanetsi River in the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
This area of the Kruger National Park boasts more leopards than anywhere else on the planet and a subspecies of lion that is particularly large.
This lodge is part of the Singita chain of eco-luxury resorts situated on exclusive concessions in national parks in Southern Africa.
Nest like an eagle
Singita Lebombo’s suites have a sense of being perched like an eagle’s nest over the park below. Like a nest, the suites are soft and cozy with spacious beds, Egyptian cotton linen, clean-lined earthy tones and sleek African touches. They have indoor and outdoor showers, air-conditioning and a fireplace. Each suite features floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open onto a private deck.
Dine in style under the stars
The resort’s outdoor restaurant is perfect for viewing wildlife by day and dining under the stars by night. All Singita resorts have a very complete South African wine cellar. The gourmet food centers on South African farm produce and selected game cooked in a modern European fusion style.
Exceptional wildlife all year round
There are morning and afternoon game drives in the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains promising access to white rhinos, black rhinos, buffalos, elephants, hippos and cheetahs.
Wildlife can be seen all year round. April to October brings dry winter months when the wildlife relies more on the rivers adjacent to Lebombo. This makes it an excellent time to view game and enjoy mild sunny weather. December to March is a time when many species give birth so the bush is alive with newborns.
Guest can venture out on guided nature walks and mountain bike excursions. At the lodge you can take archery lessons or keep fit in the gym. Guests can always go for a swim in the lodge’s spectacularly perched lap pool.
Guests can visit the Singita School of Cooking to see how Singita is training local youths to become chefs in its resorts. Guests even can sponsor one of the students if they so desire.
At Singita´s boutique and gallery you’ll find art and crafts from the local region. You may find a striking item that will allow you to take a little bit of your safari home with you.
Treat yourself to the spa
The lodge’s spa offers holistic treatments individualized to each client’s desires. Massage, scrubs and nourishing masks can be enjoyed in the comfort of your suite or out on your private deck.
Massage treatments include a Monkey Orange treatment, which uses the fruit as a massage tool for deep relaxation. Guests can also try Singita’s Ndzi Lorhe Africa (“I Dreamed of Africa”) body ritual that includes a full body exfoliation, a soothing body wrap and a unique Inkaba body massage.
