Singita Boulders Lodge

The contemporary African style found at Boulders Lodge is inspired by the geometry of the rough boulders amid which it is built. Natural hues accentuate a sense of space that flows in from surrounding vistas through floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. Located on the banks of the Sand River, the lodge is in the heart of South Africa’s safari country so that your days are spent viewing wildlife and mesmerizing landscapes–not just getting there in time to head back to camp. Yet every vacation needs easy days, and this is one of those places travelers never want to leave. With private pools, outdoor showers, fireplaces and elegant dining and imbibing options, this is the perfect place to spend a leisurely day or a chill evening.

The name of the lodge comes from a boulder that stood in the way of excavating a wine cellar. The owners wisely left the boulder in place and built the cellar around it. Like the namesake boulder, you may find yourself never wanting to leave.

Singita Ebony Lodge

Overlooking the Sand River, Ebony Lodge brings colonial Europe and contemporary South African style together in a way rarely seen elsewhere. Opened in 1993, the lodge gives one the sense it has been here much longer, rooted both to its land and to the sense of grand travel that it ingrains upon all who visit.

They call this area of the Singita Sabi Sand Reserve “Big Cat Country,” and you will feel the presence of the grand cats everywhere. The problem with staying somewhere so nice is that you won’t want to leave, though the fact that wildlife can often be seen from the outdoor dining areas means leaving is completely optional.

Each room comes with private outdoor space in which to enjoy a cocktail before bed or a cup of coffee at dawn, both ideal times to hear the sounds of the bush.

Where is Singita Sabi Sand?

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.
