Sweni Lodge

A tranquil, intimate hideaway
Kruger National Park, South Africa - South Africa Kruger National Park - South Africa

Tucked into the banks of the Sweni River, this intimate lodge is a hidden jewel that provides a bold, new African context for contemporary design, architecture and cuisine. Exuding glamour and subtle sophistication, Singita Sweni Lodge’s seven suites are hidden among a canopy of trees, each featuring open-plan interiors, a generously stocked minibar, two bathrooms and an outdoor shower overlooking the river – adding to the feeling of being enveloped by an ancient forest.

The suites include state-of-the-art amenities such as Bose sound systems and bean-to-cup coffee machines and floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto expansive wooden decks, where daybeds provide the option to fall asleep under the stars.

Gold and bronze ore, polished mud and gleaming recycled timbers add texture, while splashes of vibrant colour are inspired by beetle shells, chameleons and birds’ wings. Neutrals draw in the light. The secluded Pool Suite with its shaded riverfront deck can be connected with the adjacent suite, allowing for a more spacious option with an added layer of privacy that’s perfect for families.

Guests have private access to 33,000 acres of pristine wilderness in the world-renowned Kruger National Park, ensuring unforgettable game-viewing experiences. With the lodge’s proximity to the river, guests are also treated to up-close sightings of numerous animals and birds frequenting the area to drink or wallow in the water.
