The luxury of privacy – setting Singita’s safari experiences apart

The word exclusivity means different things to people depending on their interests and stages in life. We believe the need for privacy and peace is inherent in every traveller’s interpretation, and our entire guest experience is based on building journeys that allow guests to be surrounded by nothing but nature.

For us, exclusivity extends far beyond luxury on a superficial or merely physical level. And although each of our 15 breathtaking locations offers every possible comfort, there’s a stillness and ease that comes from the privilege of enjoying game drives in places where no other vehicles are seen; of lodges with the lowest possible bed counts; and of dining under the stars with only the gentle soundtrack of the bush. It lies in the feeling of having the wilderness all to yourself.

Boundless space and low guest numbers offer our guests a sense of ease, space and privacy

Balancing privacy with seamless service

Our personal approach, meticulous attention to detail, and the warmth of our staff all combine in intuitive service that offers guests all the breathing room they seek on a journey of growth, awakening and wonder – while catering to their every need.

Added to the sense of boundless space and time is the joy of discovering the secrets of the bush. From a magical morning quietly walking through the landscape with one of our expert trackers; to cooking alongside a passionate young chef in one of our culinary schools while learning more about local recipes passed on through generations – the personal attention you’ll receive is part of a stay couched in exclusivity.

A vast wilderness all to yourself

Exploring the unspoilt wilderness of our reserves and concessions is made all the more memorable due to their complete seclusion. With only Singita’s guests having access to these properties, you have the privilege to take your time as you enjoy close encounters with abundant wildlife almost as if you were on your own.

The very essence of an authentic safari – with the benefit of being unlikely to see anything other than game and birdlife while on a drive or bush walk - means that you’re able to absorb every moment in full.

The ultimate privilege of one-on-one encounters with wildlife is one of the many benefits of our exclusive properties

An intimate discovery of Africa’s remote beauty & abundance

This mindset of space and seclusion extends to the carefully considered and designed guest suites – with each making the most of connections with the natural surrounds. And due to Singita’s limited guest numbers, mealtimes and activities around the lodge – from poolside breakfasts to outdoor yoga, stargazing and more – are even more personalised.

No stone is left unturned to tailor experiences shaped around your preferences and tastes, and whether it’s a lantern-lit bush dinner or solo sundowners, a dedicated birdwatching itinerary over a week, or a beautifully crafted culinary and wine journey, your stay will be a meaningful reflection of the parts of the African wilderness you want to explore most.
