Honeymoon safari at Singita

Singita Sweni Lodge, South Africa

Wedding preparations can be as stressful as they are enjoyable, and yet nothing can prepare you for the blissful whirlwind of that special day. A luxurious and extraordinary honeymoon is the perfect way to reflect, unwind and celebrate the beginning of a new life together. The romance and adventure of an African safari is difficult to beat, whether you want to experience the ultimate in relaxation or get your blood pumping in thrilling moments of discovery.

Singita’s portfolio of properties, across three countries in Africa, is a wonderful starting point for an idyllic honeymoon. Anton de Wit, our Travel Service Manager, has some fantastic ideas for a memorable newlywed visit to our stunning lodges in South Africa, Zimbabwe or Tanzania:

Hot air balloon in the Serengeti | Singita

Singita Grumeti, Tanzania

See the Serengeti
Visitors to Singita Grumeti in Tanzania have the unique opportunity of chartering a hot air balloon for an unforgettable ride over the treetops of the Serengeti. This once-in-a-lifetime experience takes game viewing to new heights and gives photography buffs an amazing new perspective on the world below. You’ll skim above the grasslands and acacia forests, and at other times ascend to 1 000 feet to see the enormity of the reserve. The Singita Balloon Safari is a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness as you gracefully and silently glide over the plains, observing the wide variety of wildlife below.

High adventure
Our more adventurous guests will also enjoy the variety of outdoor activities available, which can be customised for honeymooners looking for a little solitude. These include stargazing, mountain biking, guided bush walks, wine and whiskey tastings, visits to ancient rock art sites, archery, tennis, fishing and horseback safaris. The latter, also available at Singita Grumeti, affords guests the thrill of discovering the vast plains of the Serengeti on horseback; the surreal romance and excitement of exploring the exquisite wilderness of this unique area at eye level with the wildlife. Singita’s day rides and longer equestrian safaris allow guests to journey across the open plains with a herd of zebra or giraffe, bringing them truly in touch with the pulse of Africa.

Rest & relaxation
Those looking for a less adrenaline-filled day will love the tranquility of our renowned Bush Spa, which offers a holistic and healing approach to treatments. The spa menu has been created to complement the beauty and serenity of the wilderness, and all treatments incorporate that peace and vibrant energy to revitalize and nourish guests. Body treatments such as massage, polishing scrubs and nourishing masks can be enjoyed in the comfort of your suite, out on a private deck or at the spa, and all treatments can be tailored for couples.

Total seclusion
Each of Singita’s properties has been designed to offer guests total seclusion, from the small number of self-contained suites set at a generous distance from one another, to the option of a private vehicle for twice-daily game drives. Meals can also be enjoyed privately, whether by candlelight in your suite, under the stars on the deck or out in the bush, surrounded by hurricane lamps with your own private chef and “banakeli” (butler). It would be difficult to find a more romantic setting for enjoying a delicious dinner together than in a dining room created especially for you in the soft sand of a dry river bed, with the Milky Way twinkling overhead.

Deciding which of these beautiful regions to visit is the only effort you’ll have to make; our dedicated Travel Services team will handle the rest.

One hundred unique moments

March 07, 2011 - Experience,Lodges and Camps,Singita

A Singita stay is naturally wrapped up in hundreds of unique moments of thrill and awe.  Romance overflows from Africa’s most iconic locations outdone only, perhaps, by the sheer beauty of our exquisite properties and wildlife.

The sun dips slowly behind the distant hills as the Chiredzi River flows gently by….the perfect setting for an intimate evening, deep amongst the mopanes, illuminated only by the soft golden glow of lanterns set amongst the trees.

The local people will tell you fables about the stone walls found in the area around Singita Faru Faru; and they will also share with you the myths and legends of the bush, tales of great warriors and fearless wild animals.

Sabora Tented Camp is renowned for thrilling its guests with surprise venues – and menus – for dinner.  Imagine dining beneath the boughs of a large ‘Sausage’ tree (Kigelia africana) or under a lamp-lit acacia, or around the campfire with star-lit skies.

Venetian mirrors, chandeliers, crackling fires, fresh flowers, beautiful book collections, leather armchairs, collectors’ pieces and candelabra add to the elegance and grandness of Singita Sasakwa Lodge.

Creativity of special moments extends to dinner bomas at Singita Sweni and Lebombo, with the stars as your ceiling and the sounds of the bushveld as the background music.  Scores of lamps and the campfires illuminate the enclosure, setting a warm and unhurried tone bidding you to unwind and dream.

Singita Ebony is a place with time-worn attitudes, welcoming embraces and an indefinable aura of majesty, where serendipitous events unfold before your very eyes.  So much of the magic at Boulders is created by the sincerity of its people, who do their utmost to paint a vivid chapter in your life that you are certain to remember forever.

A solitary lion…a group of elephant…a lone rhinoceros…the menacing laughter from a skulking hyena…or the formidable glance from a stalking lion…there are countless moments that make you realise what drew you to the wilderness – moments that will stay with you forever, no matter how many times you share your stories with others.
