Singita is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the African wilderness.
We believe that our untouched and expansive surrounding and the exceptional selection of wildlife – found in Singita Sabi Sand, Singita Kruger National Park, Singita Grumeti Reserves and the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve (home to Singita Pamushana Lodge) – are among our greatest assets.
We go to great lengths to ensure that the experiences we create, to showcase our beautiful reserves, are sustainable and don’t place undue pressure on the surroundings.
At Singita we live by our mantra and therefore we aim to only touch the earth lightly. This approach ensures that we don’t impose ourselves on nature, we don’t stand above it and we certainly don’t stand apart from it. Instead we immerse ourselves, and our guests, in the awe-inspiring environments surrounding the various Singita lodges and camps.
Each Singita lodge and camp offers its own selection of enticing flavours.
All the Singita lodges and camps showcase South Africa’s diverse cooking methods. These methods are continually blended with the latest international culinary trends, influences and flavours to create an unforgettable dining experience for our guests. The result, of these unique combinations, is a series of spectacular dining experience at all nine Singita lodges and camps.
Our talented chefs (many of whom are from the surrounding local communities) combine prime homegrown produce with imported essentials to create the superb Singita cuisine, cuisine that is both delicious and wholesome.
The nine Singita lodges and camps – located in South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe – offer guests the opportunity to experience a selection of Africa’s most iconic destinations.
At Singita our exceptional hospitality, innovative design and unforgettable culinary offerings are paired with unprecedented game viewing experiences. This ensures that each guest enjoys an exclusive, luxurious and memorable African stay.
The sustainable Singita model – where we highlight long-term dedication to local communities, wildlife conservation and eco-tourism – ensures that we touch the earth lightly while still offering our guests the best of Africa.
In the early 1990′s – James Fawcett Bailes’ grandson (the current owner of Singita) – began to once again focus on the work his grandfather had started.
Using the original 1930′s aerial photographs, with the help of environmentalist Dave Wright; he went about restoring the land to its original condition.
In 1993 the first lodge, Singita Ebony, opened its doors and following its huge success Singita created four more luxury game lodges in South Africa.
In recent years Singita has added four additional luxury lodges and camps, beyond the South African borders, to the exceptional Singita offering. In doing so Singita has done more than just realize James Fawcett Bailes’ legacy.
