Private lodge & charming farmhouse
Sabi Sand - South Africa Sabi Sand - South Africa

Steeped in history and combining the luxury of a comfortable safari lodge with the rustic charm of a country farmhouse, Singita Castleton is set within 45,000 acres of untouched wilderness teeming with wildlife. It’s designed for exclusive use and the beautiful stone-walled homestead and six double en-suite cottages are perfect for families and friends.

This former home of the grandfather of Singita’s Founder, Luke Bailes, features relaxed and understated interiors imbued with nostalgic references that capture the spirit and history of the original camp. The park-like indigenous grasslands front onto bushveld vistas and a watering hole where animals regularly gather to drink.

Castleton’s full staff complement includes a Field Guide, chef and host, and amenities such as a fully equipped fitness centre and yoga pavilion, tennis court, trampoline, boules court, wellness treatment rooms, wine cellar and country-style interactive kitchen accommodate every preference.

Tartans, ticking stripes and faded botanical-print fabrics complement leather, wood and wicker furniture, lending a rustic-chic atmosphere to the interiors. Many of the antiques and original furnishings have been refashioned, adding authenticity to the living areas that extend outdoors onto deep, furnished verandas that overlook the tree-shaded lawns and an expansive swimming pool. An outdoor boma with uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape allows for magical fireside dinners under the stars – completing this quintessential African bush experience.
