Sweni proved to be a very small lodge with just four guests when we visited in early October. The staff switched out so we met two different chefs who were both excellent. The game viewing is unlike any other in Kruger because, as a private concession, they are able to take the side panels down on their vehicles, take the... More

One can never use too many superlatives when describing the Singita Sweni Lodge. It's a animal kingdom with majestic plains and mountains offering breathtaking views. A natural savannah grassland of warm and rich colours and alluring game. It's a region that only Singita guests have the pleasure of seeing, a region that encompasses small ponds, various types of trees, playing... More

My wife and I visited Sweni Lodge for 2 nights in late October transferring over from Ebony Lodge on the second stage of our holiday. Ebony Lodge was going to be difficult for anyone to follow, but Sweni Lodge gave them a good run for their money and certainly delivered, so much so that my wife and I regretted that... More

We've been fortunate enough to take some amazing trips and stay at some fabulous hotels, but Singita Sweni blew them all away! We stayed here for two nights (and then went onto Singita Ebony for 3) as part of our two week honeymoon. Without a doubt, Sweni was the highlight of our trip in terms of service, food, and activities.... More

Our first night fell on their weekly bush dinner (a full restaurant experience with silver, china,... in the bush lit by numerous candle lanterns. We ended our last night with a private wine tasting in the cellar. I... More

The singita experience is fantastic. We stayed at ebony for 2 days and then Sweni for 2 days. Different experiences and very worth it. Usually like to stay more than 2 nights in one place to settle in but it was worth it to split the time and have the varied experiences. Singita does it so well that I think... More

We also did a trip to East Africa with Micato and Singita was 1000x better- the reason is you need to be on a PRIVATE RESERVE.. Singita has this. You then get to go off road and also get out and hike around with armed rangers. You will be very close to the wildlife and also moving around a lot.... More
