Tucked into the wooded Sweni riverbank in the Kruger National Park, Singita Sweni Lodge is the epitome of an intimate hideaway. Its secluded location and relatively small size – only seven private suites, each sheltered in a canopy of trees overlooking the water – make this award-winning retreat one of the most peaceful and romantic safari lodges in Africa.

Each waterside suite is hidden away in its own piece of riverine forest with vast, open-plan interiors, floor-to-ceiling glass and expansive wooden decks bringing the outdoors in. Well thought-out amenities such as Bose sound systems, bean-to-cup coffee machines and well-stocked mini bars ensure that guests want for nothing while enfolded in absolute comfort. Romantic touches – like an outdoor shower overlooking the water and a daybed draped in a cloud of mosquito netting for sleeping under the stars – add to the enchanting atmosphere of each suite. Nestled in these luxurious rooms and surrounded by every creature comfort, it may be tempting to stay indoors, but this remote corner of the Kruger National Park is well worth exploring.

Beyond the walls of this tranquil sanctuary, guests have 33,000 private acres of carefully protected South African wilderness to discover. Guided explorations into the bush at dawn and dusk, the silent observation of the continent’s most iconic wildlife, ice-cold G&Ts as the sun slips below the horizon; these are just a few of the unforgettable moments awaiting the guests of Singita Sweni Lodge.
