A note from Singita Ebony Lodge
Updated 05/14/20


#14 of 40 Specialty lodging in Sabi Sand Game Reserve
Singita Ebony Lodge stands steadfast among enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River and offers guests a fresh and contemporary interpretation of classic safaris. Combining the design highlights of tented camps and bush lodges, the original Singita lodge was inspired by the adventure and charm of old-world explorers’ camps and features campaign furniture, natural fibres and polished wood. Each of the 12 luxurious suites includes its own private plunge pool and almost all external walls have been replaced with glass and canvas to optimise views and space. Outdoor decks suspended off the river banks invite laidback dining and relaxing, allowing guests to be fully immersed in the natural surrounds. This idyllic family retreat is set in the heart of South Africa’s Big Cat country and the lodge features two Lewis suites right next to each other – ideal for families with teenage children; as well as two family suites that are perfect for families with small children. An exclusive-use villa – comprising two family suites – offers a full staff complement and complete seclusion. Located in Singita Sabi Sand in South Africa, Ebony Lodge provides guests with access to 45,000 acres of an incredible wildlife sanctuary that’s renowned for its high concentrations of big game and frequent leopard sightings.

We have just returned from Singita Ebony which for us was a very special occasion. So first time travelling since lockdown and a BIG birthday with our very special friends. The trip from Cape Town is fairly easy on Airlink, then there's about an hour drive to the lodge from Skukuza and the rangers that are allocated to you for the trip greet you and transfer you to the lodge. We were fortunate to have Piet and Lawrence who really made the trip extra special. They are competent rangers and have so much local knowledge. The vehicles are comfortable and equipped with warm blankets, poncho's and binoculars. We had rain on two of the five drives which made it a little uncomfortable, but for the second drive they did put on a roof covering. We saw some spectacular sightings of at least 300 buffalo at a watering hole and a pack of 9 very energetic and playful wild dog, who we watched for ages! We were a bit disappointed in that we only saw one lioness, which is the first time that has happened on a bush trip. We did see a leopard though very close to camp on the first drive out, which was special. A black mamba made it's appearance three times on another drive which is always rather scary! The sunset drinks are always pleasant and the staff ensure whatever your favorite drink is, is available. The Hendriks and lite tonic tasted so much nicer in that setting. All drinks are inclusive at this lodge, even the mini bar, which is far from mini, has all your best quality drinks available. You have brunch / lunch when you return from your morning drive, anytime until 13h30 which is great, staff are all so accommodating with special fussy requests! Nothing is too much for them and I believe the staff are the greatest asset in this lodge and certainly sets them apart from others. We were allocated our own special waiter / barman, Robert, who was delightful and tried so hard to please. There is a high tea at about 15h00 before the afternoon / evening drive. Dinner was once in the boma, which always makes a safari experience even better. The spacious rooms are so comfortable, with everything you could possibly need, very comfy beds and fireplace, aircons, outside shower, loads of cupboard space, plunge pool that can be heated, all overlooking a magnificent river with various animals around. Housekeeping service the rooms at least three times a day. All staff and management are very customer centric and make the stay memorable. Ebony is an authentic lodge without being over the top and you do get a true safari experience.

Hi Bernice Thank you so much for the kind words in detailing your recent Singita Ebony experience. We have been so excited and thrilled to get to have the opportunity to share our wonderful world with guests again. The game sightings have been extraordinary of late and to get to see the large herd of buffalo as well as a pack of wild dogs is very special. Piet and Lawrence are true gems in our ranks and we are so glad that you enjoyed the experience with them. Robert has been with us for over 20 years and still goes out of his way with guests. Thank you again for coming through and experiencing our world with us, and also thank you so much for your humbling words. We hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Kenny Smith Assistant Lodge Manager, Singita Ebony Lodge

I cannot day enough wonderful things about this lodge. You are catered to in the most natural of environments. Our guide, Mark Taylor Bowles was absolutely spectacular and I really believe made the whole experience so much more than I ever could have expected. - request him. There are other Marks there so make sure you say his last name. And our tracker Golden - request him as well. They amped up the fun. We laughed , they made some amazing gin drinks and we did not want to say goodbye. The hotel is festive, easy-going and works around you. We had wine tastings, gin tastings, foods to try, and they let you go to dining room whenever you want. This place gets an A+.

Thank you so much, we really appreciate your review! Marc and Golden have built a great partnership and they are passionate about sharing the bush with guests, we're so glad you got to experience them while staying with us. Thank you for the special mention of all the wining and dining too. Is there anything better than a Gin & Tonic in the bush? We hope to have you back soon, either at Singita Ebony Lodge or one of our other lodges in the not too distant future. Until then, take care! Kenny Smith Lodge Manager - Singita Ebony Lodge

I have traveled around the globe and I'm fortunate to have stayed in the best places. Hands down Singita Ebony Lodge blew me away. The service, the decor, the food and the safari excursions are exceptional. I travelled with my partner who is not even interested in wildlife and he wants to book again for next year simply because the lodge is that special. It is all inclusive (obviously it is no bargain), but the food and drink are absolutely the most upscale and it's unlimited. The amenities are superb. The rooms are stocked with every type of libation you could possibly desire. The toiletries they provide are heavenly and there is complimentary laundry service. Your clothes are returned looking better than the best Park Ave. cleaner. If you can afford this place it is an absolute no brainer and you will have the experience of a life time. Paul was my safari guide and he was the best. Guy is an excellent host and Linette is your mother away from home.

Hi Christina Thank you so much! Receiving these kinds of compliments from a seasoned traveler like yourself really humbles us. I know Paul, Guy, Mama Linneth and the laundry team will be so happy to get this feedback, and remind them of the time you all shared. The African bush has a magical spirit, one that changes us all into bush people. We look forward to hosting you at Ebony Lodge or any of our other Singita lodges around Africa on your next visit. Regards, Kenny Smith Lodge Manager - Singita Ebony Lodge
