There’s a gentle rhythm to evenings at Singita Lebombo Lodge and they tend to flow seamlessly from the magical late afternoon game drives exploring Singita’s 33,000-acre private concession in the Kruger National Park. After a sundowner stop to enjoy a gin and tonic surrounded by this breathtaking wilderness, guests return to the lodge, where the combination of lanterns and Africa’s night sky brings the lodge to life.

Book 4 nights and only pay for 3.

Surprise bush dinners – occasionally served at the end of game drives – come complete with flickering lamps, a multi-course menu and a performance by the Singita choir. The lodge’s boma dinners are equally magical, and guests are treated to a traditional buffet-style meal as well as an inspiring cultural performance of local song and dance.

Few things compare to experiencing Africa’s most iconic animals in the wild, and while each game drive fully immerses one in nature, providing a new sense of perspective, dinners at Lebombo are equally intimate. From romantic starlit evenings right on the edge of the bush to fresh and flavourful feasts on the poolside veranda – guests are able to experience various settings throughout the duration of their stay. And for an added layer of privacy, in-room dining amplifies the thrill of being in this iconic location.

The Long Bar is the heart of Lebombo as the sun sets – and perfect for interactive tastings of local spirits. South Africa is home to a thriving industry of small-batch distillers who produce unusual flavours and distinctive blends of whiskey, rum and gin, which can be tasted neat or used in any number of inventive cocktails.

After a day discovering Singita Kruger National Park’s unforgettable landscapes and wildlife, indulging in its finest food and drink and appreciating the luxury of undiluted time and space, a sense of calm descends. While stargazing on Lebombo’s roof terrace or lying on the daybed of your suite’s private deck, you’ll be surrounded by the sounds of nocturnal Africa – and the promise of another day unfolding alongside the rhythms of nature.
