Singita means a place where miracles happen and once you've stayed at Castleton you will know why. This was our first "camp" and let me say it was our favorite! Upon our arrival we were literally welcomed into the singita family. And when you leave, you will forever be grateful for your experience at Castleton. We saw so many animals,... More

October 16 we arrived from Londolozi (great experience again !) to Castleton. Lisa welcomed us and Dylan introduced the safari-staff ! We... More

Most fantastic stay in an extremely relaxed homely but beautiful environment. If you are an ardent lover of leopards this is the place for you. We saw leopard almost every day with the most magnificent male leopard lying right next to us and gracing us with his presence. Watched wild dogs on the hunt, extremely intelligent animals when one has... More

We stayed at Castleton Singita Sands and it was true paradise. Imagine eating breakfast and watching elephants, zebras, or giraffes parade across the frontage. From the time we arrived until we left, we were pampered by staff. No request was denied. The food was exceptional and the hospitality and service was personal. Everyone smiled and seemed genuinely pleased that we... More

If you've ever wanted to own your estate in the African Bush, this is your spot. Less glamourous in decor, but just as incredible as the Ebony and Boulders lodge in every other way. When you arrive, the staff hand over their home to you and your guests. From that moment forward, service is seamless, personal, professional and simply perfect.... More

The camp is coming alive with new green leaves, birds are finding their way back, and the dam and surroundings are lively with elephants wallowing in the mud. We are truly looking forward to welcoming you back to Singita Castleton soon. Marinda Visagie - Camp Manager More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Singita Castleton reopens in early October 2013 in the heart of the Sabi Sand offering a new concept of exclusivity and lifestyle safari. A private and intimate lodge, Singita Castleton is designed as the ultimate customised rental, with accommodation in six individual cottages complemented by a swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa. Castleton retains the inviting, soulful ambience and elegance of the original camp in a series of revitalised spaces that encourage relaxation, togetherness, and a deep engagement with nature.Living spaces extend outdoors onto broad verandas overlooking a watering hole where animals gather to drink and a country style kitchen draws guests into the heart of the home. Reminiscent of an African farmhouse, richly detailed interiors in a neutral palette contrast with traditional tartans and classic prints creating an unbuttoned, lived-in appeal. Botanical art references, luxurious bedding, country furniture and flagstone floors add a nostalgic, time-honoured ambience to the whole.In this idyllic lodge setting, gracious service from a staff that includes a private guide, tracker, chef, and housekeeper is finely tuned to the dictates and desires of each guest. ... more   less
