Sweni lodge is a gem in the small concession it serves within the Kruger Park. Special praise for chef Sydney whose talents never seized to amaze us. The lodge is beautifully adorned, privacy guaranteed in each of the 6 rooms. The wine cellar is quite large, and a wine tasting easily arranged. It shares a "village" with another lodge, Lebombo,...

I have stayed in five different South African lodges, three with Singita (Lebombo, Sweni, Ebony) and two with other Relais & Chateaux (Kwandwe and Camp Jabulani). All are reviewed on tripadvisor, and I will not repeat here some general comments about lodge comparisons that you can read in these other reviews. Anyhow, as Lebombo and Sweni share the same reserve... More

This was the best experience in South Africa we have had on any Safar/game reserve. Pick a category - all were the best. We did not want to leave. We will be back. This is a place that a two night stay is not enough...two weeks is what I would suggest. We reviewed all related websites and none of them... More

After staying at some of the top places in South Africa for our honeymoon (Kensington Place, Delaire Graff and Singita Ebony), Singita Sweni was pretty much the only way to match what we'd already experienced. With our standards already pretty high, Sweni managed to once again exceed them! I didn't really understand how the safari experience would differ between Ebony... More

My husband and I stayed at Singita Sweni for 2 nights. We then flew to Singita Ebony (see review) for 3 nights as we took advantage of the 1 free night promotion when staying at 2 seperate lodges within the Singita family of lodges. I would highly recommend this as it's a perfect opportunity to experience 2 different terrains, upscale... More

This Lodge is as close to perfect as you are likely to get. The staff are wonderful and were attentive to our every need, the food was excellent (although potentially very damaging to the waistline) and the beautifully appointed lodge overlooks a river bed where a family of hippos including a baby, could be seen basking on the opposite bank....

My husband and I went on a 10 day safari in South Africa last month and it was absolutely fantastic. I have been on countless African safaris over the years, but this one was by far the best. The trip overall was fantastic but I have to pay a special mention to the staff and guides at Singita Sweni. Our... More

My sister won a luxury trip to South Africa where we stayed at Singita Sweni Lodge for 4 nights in August 2008. I've been to many other holiday destinations since then but nothing compares to the holiday we had in Kruger Park! The food is spectacular!! Both myself and my sister are vegetarian and they really do go out of... More
