Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
Set along the boulder-strewn banks of the Sand River in Singita’s privately owned reserve within Sabi Sand in South Africa, Singita Boulders Lodge has a unique sense of place and seamlessly merges the light, shapes and mood of its environment. The lodge was inspired by the ancient boulders on which it rests and its temperature-controlled wine cellar – featuring an award-winning collection and personalised tastings – was built around some of the organic-shaped rocks found on the site during construction. These shapes are echoed throughout the design of this contemporary sanctuary in the bush. Expansive decks and walkways invite continuous engagements with the surrounding wilderness, while each of the 12 glass-fronted suites features spacious interiors, a fireplace, private deck, outdoor shower and heated pool. Handmade furnishings and luxurious, textured fabrics echo the raw African beauty outside. Cleverly designed communal spaces such as the Copper Bar – serving freshly pressed juices, espressos and cocktails – provide intimate opportunities for guests to connect with each other and share stories of the sightings of the day. Offering a front-row seat to 45,000 acres of untouched wilderness, guests at Boulders Lodge enjoy frequent leopard sightings as well as encounters with a magnificent range of animals like rhino, lion, buffalo, hippos and wild dogs.

When we decided to go on a last-minute safari, Singita Boulders seemed like the obvious option. Traveling 15+ hours to go on a 4 day safari may have seemed crazy to some, but when you are going to Singita—it’s well worth the journey. They made accommodations for all of our very specific kosher dietary needs and were meticulous about ensuring every single detail was perfect. With only 3-4 other couples at the lodge at the time, we felt like we were the only guests. We had our own jeep and really felt like our driver and tracker understood quickly what we wanted to see and made sure to go above and beyond to make it happen. We saw the Big Five within 48 hours and a kill on our third day. The rooms are great. Having the fireplace in the winter is an extra-nice touch. We hope to be back at Singita again.

We visited Singita Boulders for three nights after completing three nights at Singita Lebombo. The whole experience was spectacular. Lebombo and Boulders are quite different, each with its own charm (and each property seems to have its own areas of strength). Quick thoughts: -Boulders is located in the Sabi Sands reserve outside of Kruger Park. The landscape here is less visually appealing than the beauty of Lebombo; however, I would say that the wildlife here is more plentiful - especially coveted sitings such as leopard and White rhino. It is VERY likely that you will see a leopard while staying here (though nothing is ever guaranteed). -The food at this lodge was AMAZING. Every single meal was excellent. The final night was Boma, and it was very special. -The staff here is very courteous, friendly, and helpful. Special thank you to Warrick, Luke, and Selina, just to name a few. Selina was a true gem who took care of us at each meal. -The villas here are fantastic. They are very large and have every creature comfort. The motif is contemporary, but still authentically african. I LOVED our villa here. -We had spa treatments and they were wonderful and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Our experience at Boulders was exceptional and we will definitely return. This is truly a luxurious experience in the middle of the african bush.

Dear Seth and Stephen, Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of Boulders Lodge! It was our absolute pleasure hosting you and we are very pleased to read that your experiences at both Boulders and Lebombo were so special for you. The Sabi Sand reserve is certainly a ‘hotspot’ for game viewing and we are blessed with the consistency and the quality of sightings we have. Renowned for the leopard viewing, there are few better places in the world to see these majestic cats and they certainly form a large part of our experience; we are glad that you had the amazing sightings you did whilst here with us! The culinary experience is a large focus of ours as well, together with our wine offering, which together make for a magical experience in the bush. We are delighted at your feedback and have passed it on to our kitchen team. Luke, Selina and the rest of the Boulders family send their regards, as do I, and hope you will be back again soon for some more of Luke’s special Old Fashioned’s! Best regards, Warrick

Singita Boulders Lodge blew us away!! From the warm welcome at the airstrip, to the very last wave goodbye as we took off, we were simply in awe of the incredible service by Andrew and his team! Our ranger Chane and tracker Ruel were warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and made our stay unforgettable! Also to Warrick, Return, Ben, Luke were all amazing! They all have one common goal - to make your experience as special as possible. And they certainly achieved this! We felt that we'd been welcomed into the Boulders family. The luxury in our private villa was incredible, the food presented was sublime! I cannot think of a single thing that was not outstanding!! We will return, and are looking at other SIngita lodges to visit in Tanzania and Rwanda. Boulders really set incredibly high standards. It's going to be heard to beat that! THANK YOU!

My wife and I have visited many game lodges, and while all were excellent, Singita Boulders really blew us away. Everything that you could think you need has already been provided. The staff were incredibly attentive, helpful, and warm. The game viewing was phenomenal and the rooms are so beautiful and well-appointed. The icing on the cake though was the food. We are both vegans and the selection of delicious food that was on offer to us was incredible. This was probably the best vegan food we have ever had. We highly recommend Singita Boulders - this luxurious escape will transform your expectations for future holidays!

Was blown away by the experience at Singita Boulders. My first time with Singita: - Perfect all around: from the authenticity to luxury, the safari to the fine details - Warrick, leading the team, is extraordinary. Attentive to detail, charismatic and thoughtful, exceptionally in tune - Paul who led the safari - knowledgeable, charming, devoted, strong - Selina was impeccable in service - like the mother of the camp. - Reddick, Enuel, Ben also quite special, remarkable. - The setting is intimate and authentic - the accommodations perfectly appointed - Even a gym while in the wild. Massage was outstanding - Perfect all around. Quite the marvel
