Singita Ebony Lodge – Where It All Began

25 years ago, on a piece of family-owned land in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve, a boutique safari lodge opened on the banks of the Sand River, setting the pace for a new brand of luxury safari experiences. Singita Ebony Lodge would become the first of 12 environmentally sensitive properties dotted across Africa, forming the heartbeat of Singita’s conservation vision.
Back then, the lodge was, and remains to this day, a lodestar for sustainable and eco-friendly tourism; a model which combines hospitality with an amazing wilderness experience to support the conservation of natural ecosystems.

Singita Ebony Lodge stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa’s ‘big cat country.’ Guests are immersed in nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom.

The profound impact of Singita’s conservation work, which began 25 years ago, can be seen in the transformation of the land under its care, the thriving biodiversity of each reserve and concession, and the exceptional safari experience this affords guests.
