Value
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.

Singita Ebony's 12 uber-luxury suites with gourmet food, resplendent furnishings, hunting lodge styling, with a definitely modern approach to health and wellness, surround you with luxury. The standalone suites feature old world touches, netted beds with superbly soft linens, large shower and tub inside, huge outdoor shower with a massive plunge pool, plus patio lounge chairs, yoga mats, exercise programs and wild game passing by below us! But the absolute best feature going (besides the fabulous morning and evening game drives) is the ensuite real wood fireplace with tons of wood which kept us toasty-warm while having nightcaps and then sleeping in real luxury. Singita's Ebony and Boulders Camps are normally jammed with Americans like us. But because Americans want to travel but are afraid ... we had almost the entire lodge to ourselves. The only hurtle was getting Delta Air Lines a Covid-Negative test within 72-hours of departure and filling out an Attestation Form for South African Immigration saying we were Covid-Negative. On the way back to the USA, the Camp Manager arranged a Covid test with results delivered by email within a day and only your airline cares about that. This was no different than going to Hawaii, just far friendlier! DON'T BE RELUCTANT because the lodges have availability today!

We stayed for 5 nights. A short summary ... 7* Gareth (ranger) and Martin (tracker) as well as all the staff. Any request was immediately met. Appreciate putting us close to the main area. You were all amazing! 7* Sightings and more 5* Wines and drinks 5* SPA treatments! 3* for the Food. Felt it was too fancy for the bush. Would have appreciated more South African food? 2* for the Main pool area - loungers and pool dirty 5* for the bush dinner effort, 3* for food and 0* bushtoilet - broken, dirty and poor condition. 3* Waterpressure in room was poor to zero. BUT, the few "less than 5* issues" were overshadowed by the wonderful staff, amazing wildlife and bush. Can't wait to bring our family!!

Singita Ebony Lodge As we were welcomed to Ebony by Miranda, I told her Ebony had very big shoes to fill, as we had just come from Boulders, a spectacular experience. Well fill those shoes they did!! Miranda and Claude were constantly on hand, attending to every detail. On arrival at our room, we found it stocked with our preferred drinks, specifics, the correct brand of beer and everything we had consumed at Boulders. The room was magnificent, so beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and so very comfortable. There were a couple of days, we tossed up whether to game drive, or just stay in the room! We made good use of the laundry, so professionally done. On a return from a game drive, Miranda approached me, with a handful of buttons. She had been informed that there was a button missing from one of my shirts. As the button could not be found, would I mind, if they replaced all the buttons, with the samples she showed me. What a service!! Every meal again was of the highest standard, beautifully presented and just so delicious. I still need to hound the mussel soup recipe from David. The best I have ever had. As was the millionaires shortbread The attention from the barista, sommelier and every member of staff was a delightful interaction. With extensive knowledge on their subject. The absolute highlight of our trip, had the be the effort Claude put into our final game drive drinks. He set up our own private set up, which could have been an extension of the lodge. So thoughtfully decorated, items of decor selected particularly. Andries and Nkosinathi led us through incredible bush walks, took us on drives, and shared their extensive knowledge and stories with us. We had an incredible week with them, we have made two new friends.

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
