Singita Ebony Lodge is an exquisite lodge situated in the heart of the Sabi Sand Reserve, famous for its abundance of game. This exclusive lodge has just 12 stunning suites with magnificent views overlooking the bushveld and offers wonderful gameviewing.
With a stay here know that you are in one of the top locations for seeing the big five, literally on your doorstep!
The 12 suites here combine the elements of a tented camp and traditional bush camp and are beautifully furnished with lots of natural fibres. Outside enjoy your private deck and plunge pool
As well as your traditional game drives we highly suggest doing a guided safari walk as this offers an incredible way of getting up close and personal.
After a day of game drives indulge in a little you time at the spa. With a signature massage that is designed to bring peace and renewed energy.
Singita Ebony Lodge reclines in the peaceful shade of jackalberry trees on the banks of the Sand River, in the heart of the Singita Private Game Reserve. The lodge boasts timeworn colonial furniture and ethnic crafts which merge with vibrant hand-woven fabrics and relics collected from the local area. The spacious suites are places of quiet contemplation and the lodge is the epitome of the luxury safari experience, combining quality and simple refinement. This is a place to relax and enjoy the true "armchair safari", a phrase coined by the lodge itself.
The main lodge at Ebony has a beautiful lounge and dining area, situated on timber decks overlooking the Sand River, a bar area and traditional open-air boma, fully-equipped gym, health spa and wine cellar. There is an incredible gallery here filled with African art and a well stocked library for those who wish to learn more about the area. The main area shelters under towering jackalberry shade trees, and has a beautiful outlook over the Sand river - the perfect place to watch game pass by.
Game drives leave twice daily accompanied by your expert guide, to find and track the Big Five which are found in the area. If you are feeling a bit more energetic, head out on foot for a nature walk through the bush. Also on offer are community tours, mountain biking and archery - and for a bit of relaxation back at the lodge, massages can be taken in the comfort of your room.

4WD Game Drives
Go on private or shared game drives in the world famous Greater Kruger Area, South Africa to see the Big 5 - lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino - and a host of other animals. The Kruger is also a brilliant spot for birders so pack some binoculars.
Search for leopard in the Sabi Sands
The Sabi Sands is widely regarded as one of the most rewarding regions for spotting leopard in Africa. With good populations and the ability to go on night game-drives which coincides when these big cats are most active, all you need is good timing!
