Singita Private Game Reserve Archives
Singita’s concession in the Kruger National Park was granted in 2001 in part, because of Singita’s outstanding record and steadfast commitment to conservation as well as its minimal environmental footprint. Singita Kruger National Park’s mission is to create and maintain a balance between conservation, community development, and ecotourism. The lodges, Singita Lebombo and Sweni, have been built with this ideal in mind and both integrate the ‘touch the earth lightly’ philosophy into every aspect of their daily operations. Singita Lebombo and Sweni Lodges lie in the southeastern reaches of the Kruger National Park, on South Africa’s border with Mozambique. Situated on 33,000 acres, Singita’s concession is an isolated piece of pristine wilderness where a unique wildlife population thrives across four distinct ecological-zones.
This area is especially well-known for the remarkable concentration of the ‘Big Five’ and four particularly formidable pride of lions.
More About the Wildlife
Guests at Singita enjoy exclusive access to a million acres of pristine wilderness across five diverse ecosystems in Africa. As the trusted guardians of these untouched parcels of land, Singita affords its guests the opportunity to explore and connect with the bush while contributing to its conservation and preservation.
Best Time to Visit
The best wildlife viewing time is during winter, which is also considered the ‘low season’. Fewer crowds make this an appealing time for a visit. It is also the Dry season which lasts from May to September. Animals are easy to spot during the dry months as foliage becomes less abundant and they gather around rivers and waterholes. September is the most attractive month to visit. It is also the least cold of the winter months.

Weather & Climate
Singita experiences winter and summer at opposite times to Europe and North America. October to April are the hot, wet summer months while the warm and arid winter occurs from May to September. Although winter days are dry and mild, it is cold in the mornings, so warm clothes are advised for morning and evening game drives. Expect thunderstorms in the afternoon during the Wet season, though it generally doesn’t rain all day.
