Guest Testimonial

Joanne Swinton took great care in proposing a trip tailored exactly to our requirements, accompanied by great customer focus.

- FJ, Perthshire

The main order of the day at Singita Ebony is silence and solitude: surrounded by vast plains, shaded by enormous trees and hemmed in by a meandering river, Ebony is the 'original' Singita lodge that has retained its unspoiled charm and relaxing ambience, despite a fabulous recent refurbishment that has improved its already stunning interiors. Inside and out the lodge is a charming tribute to the opulence of its colonial heritage, and the 10 one-bedroom suites (plus two two-bed family suites) have been luxuriously outfitted in natural materials, shot through with crimson and saffron –the colours of the bush. Each room boasts it own private pool, open double-sided fireplace, indoor-outdoor shower and a deck from which you can spot game from a close distance. A secluded main pool is also available, and there's a health spa, gym, library and a boutique. But you're here for the wildlife: enjoy Land Rover safaris, mountain biking, bush walks and two game drives per day. We cannot rave enough about the food here, too. Enjoy breakfast and lunch served on the deck overlooking the Sand River (we love the eggs benedict and biltong) while in the evening you can dine in the boma, feeling the warmth of the fire as the Shangaan choir serenade you.
