Singita Ebony Lodge

The new Singita Ebony Lodge is located in South Africa’s Sabi Sand on the banks of the Sand River. It is a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge. External walls have given way to canvas and glass, creating new safari “tent-style” suites which maximise views and space, and allow guests to be immersed in nature. The lodge is styled to recreate the romance and adventure of tented camps in days gone by. Interiors are enhanced by the lustre of well-polished ebony and mahogany woods and natural fibres in cool tones. Furthermore there is the rich, golden glow of old brass, hand-woven baskets, traditional khaki and beige tent canvas, and exposed thatch.

The 12 suites are as follows: 8 x suites ideal for singles and couples traveling together, 2 x Lewis suites ideal for families with teenage children, 2 x family suites ideal for families with small children. (The family suites include an en-suite master bedroom and an en-suite twin bedroom as well as a dining and lounge veranda area with a stone fireplace, and a private viewing deck with heated plunge pool). There is also 1 x Ebony Villa which comprises two family suites with access to an additional private lounge, swimming pool and deck area, which connects these two individual suites. It includes a private guide and vehicle, chef, host and banakeli (personal waiter). There is a private entrance and boma, so small groups searching for complete seclusion will be at ease. This villa is suited to up to four adults and four children under 12 years, or up to six adults and teenagers.
