Truly a great stay. Wonderful service and food. Every need taken care of. The game drives were amazing. We were lucky to have Jacques as our guide and Sunday as our tracker. The two of them were top notch. I can't recommend this lodge enough. Truly a great stay.

This place was amazing. The game drives were so exciting and fun that you almost miss the fact that you're staying at one of the nicest lodges in the world! Staff does a great job anticipating your needs and providing superior service.

The arrival at the Singita landing area set the tone for the whole trip--minimalist, natural, and completely in the wild, but luxurious, courteous, and perfect. The resort lodge itself seems impossibly perched in the trees above the river, like a bird's nest. It's designed to disappear. The rooms have glass walls so the view and the experience with nature is... More

I can't fault Sweni. The design and attention to detail are extraordinary; the staff are attentive and thoughtful; the food is understated and lovely; the reserve itself ("the concession") is beyond belief. It's expensive. It's quite wonderful. Ask for Brian as your guide and Howard as your spotter; I hope you spot a black rhino trotting through the veldt.

We spent a week at Sweni/Lebombo for our Honeymoon and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The staff were great and always 3 steps ahead of you, no matter what you needed someone was always ready to help. We both gained 10 lbs from all the food we ate, between breakfast, game drive snacks, dinner and afternoon... More

We have stayed at all of the Singita lodges in South Africa and I have to say that there is something very special about Sweni and the way that it is operated. First of all, the private Lebombo concession that Singita has for both Sweni and Lebombo lodges is truly outstanding. It is massive, beautiful, quiet and not 'over-traded' (like... More

There are 6 rooms here, so certainly a small lodge, but we loved it all the more for that. Peaceful with a lovely view of the river and the wildlife that brings. The rooms are large, comfortable and very luxurious. The food is very good, although I suspect due to their only being 6 rooms a little more limited than... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resting lightly upon the ground within a 33,000 acre, private concession in the Kruger National Park, Singita Sweni Lodge is nestled beautifully amongst hundreds of trees at the edge of the Sweni River. In this tranquil, intimate hideaway, the decks of the lodge seem to hover in the branches, while inside, rich calming colours and textures echo the hues of the natural surroundings. With its proximity to the river, guests at Singita Sweni Lodge are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in the river. ... more   less
