Singita Ebony Lodge

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Platinum price level

Mango Opinion

Ebony is warm and gorgeous. While we slightly prefer Boulders Lodge, if space is an issue, then you will not be sorry with Ebony even for a minute. It is hard to forget the magic of having all the pieces fit together so elegantly. We enthusiastically recommend this property. Wine lovers are encouraged to take advantage of the wine cellar, so make sure to book a cellar tasting.

If you are considering staying at modern Lebombo, then maybe think about going for Ebony as your second camp 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.

Singita Ebony Lodge stands steadfast among enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River and offers guests a fresh and contemporary interpretation of classic safaris. Combining the design highlights of tented camps and bush lodges, the original Singita lodge was inspired by the adventure and charm of old-world explorers’ camps and features campaign furniture, natural fibers and polished wood.

Each of the 12 luxurious suites includes its own private plunge pool and almost all external walls have been replaced with glass and canvas to optimize views and space. Outdoor decks suspended off the river banks invite laidback dining and relaxing, allowing guests to be fully immersed in the natural surrounds.

This idyllic family retreat is set in the heart of South Africa’s Big Cat country and the lodge features two Lewis suites right next to each other – ideal for families with teenage children; as well as two family suites that are perfect for families with small children. An exclusive-use villa – comprising two family suites – offers a full staff complement and complete seclusion.

Located in Singita Sabi Sand in South Africa, Ebony Lodge provides guests with access to 45,000 acres of an incredible wildlife sanctuary that’s renowned for its high concentrations of big game and frequent leopard sightings.
