Rooms + Suites

Spaces that merge with the colors, textures and sculptural shapes of the wild.

African style at Lebombo has evolved where everything defers to the magnificence of nature in smart yet relaxed living spaces. This boldly dramatic lodge, situated on Singita’s private concession in the Kruger National Park, is home to 15 loft-style suites. The design of these light-filled structures, floating between river and sky, was inspired by the many eagles’ nests built into the cliff face of the river bank.

Sophisticated and contemporary, the glass-walled suites are romantic hideaways leading outdoors onto elevated wooden viewing decks where guests may sleep out with nothing more than mosquito netting between them and the stars. Throughout the lodge, the imaginative use of glass, wood, steel, and layered fabrics in muted shades invites the surrounding landscape indoors.
Wellness

A delightful respite in the picturesque wilderness.

The main lodge area is home to a spacious swimming pool. Plus, a fully equipped fitness center is available for guests’ convenience. Each facility provides picturesque views of the bush, allowing you to keep an eye on the action outside while you work out.

The Singita wellness philosophy creates an environment for urban-weary guests to reconnect to nature, revive their senses, restore their body and mind, and explore our African culture. The guests' spa journey can be performed in the tranquility of the spa, out on a private deck, or in the comfort of guest suites. The products used are carefully selected for the positive impact that they have on our guests and the environment.
Restaurants + Bar

Each meal, tailor made.

High-end, creative food is an integral part of Singita's safari experience. Singita's chefs go above and beyond to tailor make each meal to individual guest preferences. Bush breakfasts, private in-suite dining, sundowners, a boma dinner and bush dinner are all possible!

Singita is recognized as one of Africa’s most influential collectors of wine, with an extensive cellar showcasing a premium selection of wines, including some of the continent’s most sought-after private reserves, including exclusive release, limited single vineyard and rare auction wines. It’s safe to say that wine is a key ingredient of the unique Singita experience. Personalized wine tastings within the unique ambience of each lodge’s own temperature-controlled cellar are a true guest favorite, for connoisseurs and casual tasters alike.

Singita’s experienced sommeliers are able to guide guests through a variety of wine styles, years and cultivars to find the wines most suited to their individual tastes. Botanical-inspired cocktails are also a hallmark here, as are the effortlessly chic tapas dishes that accompany them. It’s a tantalizing preamble for dinners under a canopy of stars.

Agent Tips

  • The lodge provides laundry service as a part of the rate; take advantage of this by packing lightly and rewearing your clothes! It's not a fashion show, it's safari. Speaking of outfits, the lodge also conveniently provides a couple hat options in your room. Try them on and feel free to sport an authentic look out on game drive!
  • Inquire about the 'sleep out' experience where you can truly be immersed in the bush, sleeping under the stars.
  • Guests also have the opportunity to interact with the people of Singita in a unique way – by rolling up their sleeves and taking part in a lesson with the students at the Singita Community Culinary School.
