The original Singita lodge (now one of a dozen lodges and camps spread throughout Africa), Ebony overlooks the Sand River from among the trees and provides a great base camp for those who want to explore a small, but representative part of this beautiful continent.
The retreat sits at the heart of Singita Sabi Sand, a privately owned game reserve spanning over 45,000 acres famous for its abundance of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Few places are better placed to give their guests a better sense of what wild Africa is all about.
Accommodations comprise ten 1-bedroom suites, each with its own plunge pool and a couple of 2-bedroom family suites (intended for two patents and two children), also with plunge pools. Amenities are surprisingly modern for such a remote location: television in the library at the main lodge, as well as fitness and gym facilities and even WiFi (though you shouldn’t expect the internet to be quite as reliable as it is at home); the main lodge area also has swimming pool.
But you didn’t come to the South African savannah for the internet and swimming pools. Activities organized by the Singita Ebony Lodge are game drives, safari walks (even during the night, when you get to see a clear starry sky like you never do in cities and towns), and even visits to local communities, allowing guests to experience not only the natural part of Africa, but also the human side as well.
