Boulders Lodge is at the forefront of contemporary African style inspired by the geometry of the rough boulders amidst which it is built. Innovative design and natural hues accentuate a sense of space that flows in from surrounding vistas through floor to ceiling glass walls. Gloriously appointed in dappled shade on the banks of the Sand River. Open, organic fluidity in gentle, neutral and monochrome tones unites in and outdoors to create a comfortable Zen appeal.
Singita Castleton found in the heart of the Sabi Sand offers a new concept of exclusivity and lifestyle safari. A private and intimate lodge, Singita Castleton is designed as the ultimate customised rental, with accommodation in six individual cottages complemented by a swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa. Castleton retains the inviting, soulful ambience and elegance of the original camp in a series of revitalised spaces that encourages relaxation, togetherness, and a deep engagement with nature.
Living spaces extend outdoors onto broad verandas overlooking a watering hole where animals gather to drink and a country style kitchen draws guests into the heart of the home. Reminiscent of an African farmhouse, richly detailed interiors in a neutral palette contrast with traditional tartans and classic prints creating an unbuttoned, lived-in appeal. Botanical art references, luxurious bedding, country furniture and flagstone floors add a nostalgic, time-honoured ambience to the whole.
With a rich heritage that blends an eclectic, romantic mix of European collectables and antiques, African artefacts, historical books and photographs; Singita Ebony Lodge welcomes visitors to unwind in an ambience that typifies the much-loved home of a seasoned traveller.
This is where it all started, back in 1993, when this lodge opened its doors as Singita’s flagship property. Today, it stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the Singita Sabi Sand reserve – an area fondly known as ‘Big Cat Country’.
Singita Ebony Lodge may be described as one of the finest lodges in the world, but its essence evokes a feeling of familiarity. With the stylish character of a bespoke northern hemisphere home, the influences of English countryside florals mix beautifully with the bold colours of Africa. The vivid green shades of the bush-veld, the earthy tones of the riverbed, the deep ochre of the sunset, the fiery-tinged reds of the exotic plants and multiple hues of the trees that fringe the lodge are reflected throughout.
