Sweni – Spirit of the River

March 24, 2011 - Accommodation,Kruger National Park,Lodges and Camps

Singita’s private concession in the Kruger National Park is one of the most pristine wildnerness areas in Africa and where a unique wildlife population thrive within an astounding diversity of flora and landscapes.

Sitting low on the Sweni River, Singita Sweni Lodge is a tranquil sanctuary built on stilts with decks of dark timber, giving it a grounded and earthy feel.  The six secluded suites offer solitude in a wild setting that stimulates all the senses.  The idea of ‘letting nature indoors’ is one of the main design elements at Sweni.  The look and feel, with tactile furnishings, has been carefully created to bring in the textures and shades of the bush.

Imagine taking time to lie back in an enormous bath of bubbles or salt crystals, watching the hippos wallowing around in the river beneath open windows.  Part of being a natural extension of the surrounding bush is enjoying the outdoor shower overlooking the river and ‘camping out’ under the stars on balcony beds.

The ‘touching the earth lightly’ concept plays a major role and every effort has been made to respect and protect the environment so that it will be conserved for future generations.
