Connecting with loved ones at Singita Ebony Lodge

Inspired by the rich history of safari and imbued with a deep significance to Singita as a brand, Singita Ebony Lodge is an exceptional wilderness retreat for many reasons. The founding property of our now expansive portfolio of lodges and camps has embodied our purpose since the start of our journey: to serve as custodians of this, and other precious wilderness areas.

Dating back generations and crossing borders as it keeps unfolding, the story of Singita began on the banks of the Sand River in the Sabi Sand in South Africa three decades ago. Here, in a wilderness that was previously completely inaccessible, except to Singita’s environmental team and the owner’s family, our first lodge raised the bar on immersive safari escapes when it was built.

A haven among the trees, Ebony was Singita's first lodge – a tranquil escape that embodies all the brand stands for

Space & time to spend with family

Ebony’s lasting legacy – which is grounded in the spirit of togetherness – is ever-present in its ability to host multi-generational groups and travellers of all types. Courtesy of its location on this spectacular private reserve, the lodge offers the luxury of wide-open spaces, low guest numbers and as a result, an unrivalled experience that’s the epitome of exclusivity in the most meaningful ways.

As an ideal destination for those yearning for flexibility and privacy while sharing life-changing encounters in the wild, every element of a stay at Ebony can be personalised, down to the configuration of your accommodation. Four spacious family suites are on offer, with generous living spaces and features for all seasons – from welcoming dining and verandah areas to stone fireplaces, private viewing decks and heated plunge pools.

Ebony's versatile suites cater for any type of traveller - from multigenerational family groups to honeymooners

The private-use Ebony Villa comprises two family suites and sleeps eight. This idyllic retreat is the ideal space in which to celebrate connections with loved ones. It also offers a full staff complement, dedicated game vehicle and Field Guide, and its own private boma for memorable dinners under starlit skies.

Endless opportunities to create lasting memories

Offering a continuous sense of seamlessness and ease, family mealtimes at Ebony are part of this lodge’s intimate appeal. Fresh and flavourful dishes form the foundation of each relaxed feast, and the emphasis is on wholehearted togetherness.

Children’s ages and interests are always taken into account, with menus that are easily adapted – and ‘little chefs’ are encouraged to participate too. For parents, Ebony’s elegant multi-course dinners are perfectly paired with award-winning wines from Singita’s impressive cellar, a combination that makes for world-class dining in this remote wilderness.

Guests of every age are considered – from activities for young travellers to elegant dining and wine pairing for the adults

Rich & rewarding game-viewing experiences

Our lodges in South Africa – here in Sabi Sand and in Singita Kruger National Park – benefit from the warmth and expertise of our Field Guide and Tracker teams. Skillfully guiding guests of all ages through the richness and depth of the wilderness, each personalised game drive and bush walk in their company is an enriching journey.

Their extensive knowledge of the landscape and its wildlife – coupled with inspired storytelling and wisdom passed down through generations – ensures one-of-a-kind encounters throughout the time guests spend with us. Further deepening each adventure, the privilege to be present as your children’s eyes are opened the wonders of the wilderness makes for irreplaceable memories.

Our Field Guide and Tracker teams' expert knowledge of the wilderness guarantees an enriching and engaging experience for all ages
