Singita Lebombo Lodge

Kruger National Park, South Africa

Platinum price level

Mango Opinion

Lavish and sleek, Lebombo is another property with very little to say other than - go there - you will love it. We enthusiastically recommend this property. The terrain is quite different from the Sabi Sands area of Kruger, thus these two areas complement each other nicely. If you go to modern Lebombo, then maybe think about going for Ebony in the Sabi Sands.

The only possible downside to this experience for some is that not many young people can afford Singita, so the age of the clientele tends to be on the older side. Book early as space is a challenge. For most, this is not the start to a trip - but a well-savored finale.

Suspended high above the N’wanetsi River, the dramatic cliffside setting of Singita Lebombo Lodge’s 13 contemporary glass-walled suites ensures inimitable views of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The lodge’s cutting-edge design is cleverly integrated into its wilderness setting, where everything defers to nature and airy spaces welcome the breathtaking surrounds inside.

The sophisticated loft-style suites embody the essence of modern romantic hideaways and their elevated wooden viewing decks allow guests to sleep outside under the stars. These light-filled structures, floating between river and sky, were inspired by the many eagles’ nests built into the cliff face of the river bank.

Surrounded by Singita’s 33,000-acre private concession in the park, the lodge boasts communal areas that extend seamlessly into rocky outcrops dotted with giant euphorbia trees. Features include a roof terrace, multimedia room, library, interactive kitchen, espresso bar and an all-day ‘bar-deli’. The exclusive-use villa – comprising two 2-bedroom suites, each with their own private pool – is set apart from the lodge and offers a full staff complement, private boma, open-plan kitchen and airy living areas that spill onto inviting outdoor spaces with an expansive pool.
