A Snapshot of Sweni Lodge

Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts with decks of timber. Even when you’re indoors, you’ll have the sensation of being close to the river and trees.

There’s an authenticity of place at each of our lodges that is not only a rarity but touches guests on every level – spiritual, emotional and physical.

Singita Sweni Lodge – The Inspiration

In this tranquil, intimate hideaway, the decks of the lodge seem to hover in the branches, while inside, rich calming colours and textures echo the hues of the natural surroundings.

Community & Conservation

Conservation lives hand-in-hand with ecotourism and community development at Singita. We believe it’s the responsible way to maintain and extend the sustainability of our wildlife reserves.

A Wildlife Showcase

There was a time when the earth was lush with unspoilt wilderness teeming with game; today, places like this are the exception rather than the rule. In this short film, we celebrate Africa’s abundance and diversity of wildlife, and the fragile ecosystems of which they are a part.

The Story of Eckson

“Tracking is an art, not everyone can do it. You need to be patient and you need to be persistent… A good tracker needs to think like an animal. They need to listen, keep quiet and always be aware.”

Singita’s Vision

Singita’s purpose is to protect and preserve large tracts of wilderness for future generations. This will be magnified as pristine parts of the world continue to shrink in the face of population growth.
