Ebony Villa

A rejuvenating return to nature

Ebony Luxury Lodge & Safari | Sabi Sands

Sabi Sand, South Africa

Idyllically located on the banks of the Sand River.

Singita Ebony Villa pays subtle tribute to the romance and adventure of classic tented safaris, with motifs and materials - from the elegant draped four poster beds, to animal print and elegant brass, wood and stone detailing - that transport you to an era of adventure and exploration.

This intimate villa is sheltered by trees and designed to fully embrace its tranquil surroundings.

This immersion in the wooded setting offers all the calming, rejuvenating benefits of nature, and the opportunity to connect with loved ones in a truly restorative and special environment. Two family suites, set alongside one another, make it a flexible space for families to enjoy their own private space but in close proximity to each other.

Designed to extend the feeling of intimacy, outdoor areas are secluded and yet at one with the bush.

A private outdoor boma is screened off and shaded by the riverine canopy, perfect for fireside vigils under the clear night sky, and the outdoor dining space sets a peaceful scene for leisurely meals. A stone fireplace, swimming pool, spacious deck and heated plunge pools offer all-season comfort, to enjoy the elements at any time of year.

This is where it all started back in 1993 when Ebony Lodge opened its doors. This iconic lodge stands tall among enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa’s big-cat country.
