Is not a hotel, is not a house, but is the paradise.The ambience,the service , the safaris and even the animals was the best that you can find in this type of travel.You can see not big five but the big seven... The food , the drinks , the surprises in the night or in the morning was absolute delight.

Our family went to Singita Castleton to celebrate a 60th birthday. It was the most perfect weekend imaginable. Yes, we saw the big 5 (all within five km of the camp!) and yes the lodge was beautiful - but what makes this place special is actually difficult to put in to words. The ranger, Claude, was really in a league... More

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

When I visited Singita a few years ago, during a drive, we saw Castleton. We asked for a closer view and "inspected" the camp. Then my dream started ! To be here with family and friends...just us ! 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
