Singita Lebombo & Sweni — In The Heart of Kruger
Night safari drives, walking safaris, cycling safaris–these two lodges located in a private concession in the heart of Kruger National Park offer the complete package. Originally protected in 1898, Kruger became South Africa’s first national park in 1926. Home to 147 species of wildlife including the Big Five, Kruger is the largest park in Africa at 7,500 square miles. The intimate lodges offer the perfect respite after a day of marvels. Glassed-in suites, private viewing decks, outdoor baths and fine dining all come together at these exclusive retreats.

Each of Lebombo’s 15 glass-walled suites appears to hang in the air – part tree house and part cliff dwelling – putting you in perfect position to view wildlife and the surrounding panorama from the serenity of your suite. Highly personalized service includes professional guides and trackers who can accommodate any desire. Back at the lodge, enjoy spa treatments, fine dining and one of the finest wine cellars in Africa, including the availability of South Africa’s top vintages for shipment back home.
With only six wood and glass suites that ‘float’ above the Sweni River, Singita Sweni is nestled inside a beautiful canopy of trees. The suites invite open-air living with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, timber decks for private dining and a magical outdoor shower and star bed for intimate ‘camp-outs’. In this tranquil hideaway, the decks of the lodge seem to hover in the branches, while inside, rich calming colors and textures echo the hues of the natural surroundings. With its proximity to the river, guests are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in its waters.
Where Are These Camps?
Singita Lebombo and Singita Sweni are located on the east side of Kruger National Park near South Africa’s border with Mozambique. Both camps are situated along the Sweni River.
