Increasingly, families are seeking meaningful travel excursions that incorporate the whole family.  People want to interact with local cultures and celebrate the distinctiveness of a destination.  No longer is the travel experience just about seeing a new place. What is important, is to learn a new skill or gain a new understanding about how the world works or how people live in their regions.

Singita Sweni Lodge lends itself perfectly to a family safari.  One of Singita’s ten unique experiences in Africa, Singita Sweni is located in the largest private concession in the Kruger National Park and poised in an ideal position overlooking the Sweni River – where often up to 80 hippos settle themselves in the water right in front of the lodge. The game-rich concession is situated in the far eastern part of the Kruger National Park, which is arguably “the world’s most famous wildlife destination”.

At Singita Sweni Lodge families can enjoy the run of the lodge on an exclusive-use basis to accommodate up to 12 guests in six sumptuous suites.  There are no set schedules or restrictions, so families can slow down in nature together – swop safari stories under the stars, join the lodge staff choir in a traditional dance around the camp fire, or revel in the thrill of a guided bush walk with a Field Guide and Tracker.

The chance to interact with the local community can provide the opportunity to embrace a new perspective – and even transform lives in more ways than one.  One of Singita’s many conservation and community projects is the nearby Singita School of Cooking and a visit to meet these young student cooks takes guests and their children on a wondrous voyage of cultural discovery – where guests can taste local dishes and gain a glimpse into everyday life in the bush.
