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

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
