Castleton

Unmatched exclusivity and comfort

Castleton Luxury Lodge & Safari | Sabi Sands

Sabi Sand, South Africa

The relaxed and understated interiors of this former home of the grandfather of Singita’s Founder, Luke Bailes, feature nostalgic references that capture the spirit and history of the original camp.

The property combines the most refined elements of a private safari lodge with the rustic charm of a country farmhouse. Many antiques and furnishings have been refashioned, adding authenticity to the living areas that extend outdoors onto deep, covered verandas which overlook tranquil lawns, a busy waterhole frequented by game and an expansive swimming pool.

Casual elegance with a light & airy atmosphere

The beautiful stone-walled homestead and six double en-suite cottages are perfect for families and friends and accommodate up to 12 guests. Exclusive facilities include a Bocce court, extensive wine cellar, country style kitchen and tennis court, as well as state-of-the-art wellness facilities such as a fitness centre, yoga pavilion and double and single massage treatment rooms. An outdoor boma with uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape allows for magical fireside dinners under the stars.

An incomparable setting for shared connections

Singita Castleton is set within 45,000 acres of untouched wilderness in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, and offers guests exclusive game-viewing opportunities to experience the abundance of an area fondly known as “Big Cat Country”.

Conservation in South Africa

In South Africa, the Singita Lowveld Trust employs a dedicated team focused on protecting and conserving the biodiversity of the incredible land under its care.

In South Africa, the Singita Lowveld Trust manages a wide range of conservation projects in Singita Sabi Sand and Singita Kruger National Park – from anti-poaching initiatives to wildlife research & land management, sustainability efforts and community partnership projects such as early childhood development, digital learning and a world-class culinary school.

A highly skilled team of tracking dogs and handlers enhance anti-poaching efforts in the Sabi Sand Reserve, while the Trust’s partnership with the global conservation NGO Panthera has shown that the area is home to the largest density of leopards of any protected area surveyed in South Africa. The Panthera’s Furs for Life project – of which Singita is a partner – has reduced the demand for leopard skins with 50%.
