Inspiring a complete sense of calm, Singita Sweni Lodge’s intimate riverside setting welcomes guests into the ultimate comfort zone, ensconced in untouched natural surrounds.

Here, your senses can breathe a sigh of relief as your inner clock resets itself to the unhurried pace of the bush. Merging the striking colours of bird feathers, butterfly wings and beetle shells, Sweni’s interiors capture the hues of this private concession in the Kruger National Park, while offering every conceivable creature comfort.


PROMOTION: Stay 5 nights, only pay for 4. Enjoy the best of the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand with Singita. Find out more >


Epitomising the luxury of being able to unwind in expansive spaces, Sweni Lodge’s seven glass-fronted suites all include state-of-the-art amenities, from Bose sound systems to bean-to-cup coffee machines.

With two bathrooms, open-plan interiors and a generously stocked minibar, each river-facing enclave also features an outdoor shower overlooking the river – adding to the sensation of being enveloped by a forest of ancient trees.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto inviting wooden decks with mesmerising views – as well as the option to fall asleep under a starlit African sky on a netted daybed; waking up to the sounds of birdsong at sunrise.

Settling into your suite, the remote and peaceful location of the lodge, combined with the comfort of luxuriously textured fabrics and furniture, shape an experience that is as serene as it is refreshing.

With its added layer of exclusivity – and boasting a private swimming pool and shaded riverfront deck – the magnificent Pool Suite can be also connected to the adjacent suite, transforming it into an expansive two-bedroom offering that’s tailor-made for families.

Sweni Lodge is the kind of sanctuary where you can sense the nearby wildlife even before catching a glimpse of shy antelope emerging from lush vegetation for a drink; or hearing the entertaining grunts and groans of hippos wallowing in the shallow water downriver.

With its prolific wildlife population, Singita’s 33,000-acre concession in the Kruger National Park forms the breathtaking backdrop to the lodge’s sought-after location. Sweni is the perfect springboard to discover the area’s famous lion prides, elephants, leopards, rhinos, giraffes and more on twice-daily game drives – or on the bush walks that are available on request.

Infused with light, the airy atmosphere of the glamorous and intimate Marble Bar, as well as the outdoor dining areas, infinity pool and fire-pit deck seamlessly combine to form the main lodge areas, providing even more opportunities to appreciate the magnificent sights and sounds of the bush.

PROMOTION: Stay 5 nights, only pay for 4. Enjoy the best of two pristine wilderness areas with Singita.

Guests booking a combination of five nights between Singita Ebony Lodge in Sabi Sand and Sweni Lodge in  Kruger National Park will receive one of the nights and one flight per person between the lodges complimentary. A minimum of two nights is required at both lodges and the promotion is valid for travel until 19 December 2019 & 6 January – 14 December 2020. Enquire now >

At Singita Sabi Sand in South Africa, we have partnered with Dreamfields, a non-profit organisation that works with the national Department of Education to put resources for playing soccer and netball into rural schools. Many younger people from outlying areas in South Africa aren’t equipped to play these sports competitively and are unable to reap the lifelong benefits of participating in a well-organised team activity.
