Singita Ebony Lodge, Sabi Sand Reserve, Mpumalanga
Overlooking South Africa’s winding Sand River, the all-inclusive Singita Ebony Lodge is the refuge of thrill-seekers who refuse to compromise. Big game and sheer decadence are standard fare at this luxury camp.
Nestled beside South Africa’s Sand River, which keeps the surrounding land green and lush, Singita Ebony Lodge is an unassuming thatch-roofed inn hiding a cache of luxury delights.
Ebony Lodge’s intimate décor will both soothe and stimulate you – bask amid colonial and aboriginal designs melded together in an utterly one-of-a-kind, memorable manner. When the day heats up, relax by the pool in the main house while indulging in a cornucopia of locally produced wines.
At daybreak and dusk, you’ll get the chance to track lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant with the camp’s knowledgeable guides. Conveniently, the Singita Sabi Sand Game Reserve is home to high concentrations of some of the world’s most difficult game.
If you still have energy after the morning game drive, grab a mountain bike and head out on nearby trails to explore the region on your own. Or request a guided safari hike, or a tour of the community villages, during which you’ll get to know your neighbors.
