Singita Castleton | South Africa Safari Lodges
Greater Kruger Park
Singita Castleton has been designed to combine the best elements of a private safari lodge with the rustic charms of a country farmhouse. Formerly the family home of the grandfather of Singita safari camps’ founder Luke Bailes, Singita Castleton is an exclusive-use lodge set within 45,000 acres of private reserve. The property consists of a main house with communal living spaces, and accommodations located in six individual cottages on the grounds, catering for up to 12 people. The estate is steeped in history, and the lodge exudes that nature, capturing the spirit of the original Castleton house.
Today, Singita Castleton offers the added benefit of extensive high-end facilities and amenities, including a vast garden, rolling lawn, swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa treatment room. Guests can relax together in the courtyard, gather around the traditional outdoor “boma” or meet in the country-style kitchen. At the same time, the individual cottages allow guests to retreat to the privacy of their own space when they desire. An added bonus is that the house and cottages overlook a waterhole where animals regularly gather to drink.
A stay at Singita Castleton includes a variety of exclusive activities. Guests have their own private field guide and tracker with a private Land Rover for the duration of their stay. Daily game drives provide an exhilarating opportunity to get up close to Sabi Sand’s incredible animals, while evening drives reveal the magic of nocturnal Africa. Guided safari walks are also offered. Community visits to a local village, private wine tastings from Castleton’s own extensive cellars, and indulgent spa treatments are also popular experiences.
