Experiences of the South African countryside rarely get more personal than this. Game drives are tailor-made: responding to the individual guests’ needs, the professional field guide ensures no two drives are the same. A remote and wild region of Kruger, animal spotting and lion sightings are often unmatched in this gorgeous retreat. Track native animals on foot with the Guided Safari walks led by another expert in the field. From a wealth of experience, the guide shares anecdotes and tales of wild adventures.


Singita's enduring purpose is to restore the land, with most of the cost of each stay being reinvested into conservation. To this end and using aerial pictures from 1935 as a template, The Singita Lowveld Trust is dedicated to leaving the biodiversity of the land in an untouched state as possible. Additionally, Bioregional, the London-founded consultancy, advises Singita in creating more sustainable ways to live, work and do business.

Elsewhere, there is an anti-poaching unit which works to protect the beautifully rare rhino inhabitants, whilst all income from the Community Culinary School is reinvested into local projects supporting young people in disenfranchised communities.

Why we love it

Suspended over the N’wanetsi River, the Lemombo Lodge draws its architectural inspiration directly from the environment: the intricate but sturdy eagles’ nests integrated into the cliff face. Artistically designed to blend into the surrounding areas, you are as close as possible to nature without losing any of the bespoke luxury. Singita Lebombo strives on intertwining your wild safari experience with inside indulgence.
