Lodge: beautiful and very tastefully done up place. The rooms are nice and open onto a deck on the banks of river Olifants. The views are very nice and serene. We enjoyed watching a hippo play in the river everyday! Sue, the manager of the lodge definitely deserves a lot of credit for our happy stay. We are vegetarians, and... More

We stayed at Singwe for 3 nights and it was a very comfortable experience to stay at Singwe and enjoy the Lodge. It is set right on the bank of the Olifants river which you can see flowing away meters from you. Hippos (and also we are told crocodiles) right in front of you! On the first day we found... More

We had an incredible experience at Singwe. We were the only people at the lodge during our entire stay, which created a very private, personalized atmosphere. The rooms were great – spacious and luxurious – and the lodge itself was beautiful. It’s position right on the river gave it incredible views as well as the experience of seeing animals come...

We just had a lovely stay with you. We had the luxury of staying as "private" guests so we feel spoiled. The kids still talk about the gamedrives, about Wim and Kasi, they realy dit there best to make it unfogetable. And of course the lovely food when we returned in the resort. We saw almost all of the big... More

We had such a fantastic time at Singwe and would definitely go back! Value for money we thought was fantastic. Game drives were brilliant, food was great - really good home cooked South African cuisine, staff and management excellent. Very chilled out atmosphere and very easy to relax. Felt so at home and we were so sad to leave at... More

Wow what a fantastic experience I had in the African bushveld, the folks at Singwe River lodge made sure of that. Now I've been to many holiday venues in this wonderful country South Africa and I can honestly say that I rate Singwe River Lodge amongst my top 5 favorite spots in SA.

Not sure where to even start when it comes to Singwe. This place redefines amazing. My husband and I drove from the Johannesburg airport to the lodge, which took about 6 hours (with a stop or two) and got there after dark for a 3 night stay this November. As soon as we got there, Peter, the game driver/ranger, met... More

After traveling through the Kruger Park, we stayed 3 nights in Singwe Lodge. Finding the lodge was not difficult but driving the last 2 km with our (rented) Toyota Corolla was an adventure in itself. But they will pick you up if driving downhill to the river is too difficult for you or your car. The lodge is beautifully situated... More

I discovered that place by browsing on internet...By utter chance!!! This resort is situated on the Oliphant river bank, in an incredible setting. This is the kind of place where you feel immediately welcome and almost part of the family. We stayed in a cottage 20 feet from the river bank, and slept accompanied by the callings of baboons and...
