The detail

Sabi Sands is known for its superior safari lodges and Big Five sightings with the varying habitats ensuring a wide diversity of game.  The elegant Singita Ebony Lodge is the founding lodge of the premier Singita brand. Nestled beneath old jackalberry trees on the banks of the Sand River, the award-winning Ebony Lodge is characterised by a sense of homeliness and inspired by traditional African colonial style. The unassuming appearance of the lodge belies the sumptuous luxuriousness imbued with understated glamour and elegance. Soft colours and rich textures create a sense of warmth and tranquillity. Ebony Lodge offers discerning guests the quintessential African safari, accompanied by flawless personalised service.

Accommodation at the elegant Ebony Lodge is provided by twelve luxury suites. Two of these have two bedrooms, and the remaining ten have one. The opulent suites are located to ensure privacy and maximise views.

All of the bedrooms are en-suite, with both indoor and outdoor showers. All suites offer double-sided fireplaces and a spacious living area that opens onto an elevated timber viewing deck with heated plunge pool. The two bedroomed suites are ideal for families, and offer an additional dining and lounge area. They can also be secured as ‘a lodge within a lodge’; an option that includes a private Land Rover and guide, as well as a chef and butler.

The main lodge houses a comfortable lounge, bar area, and reference library. Ebony Lodge is known for its exceptional cuisine, service, and magnificent wine cellar. Personalised wine tastings are conducted for guests by the lodge sommelier. During the day, meals can be taken on the deck overlooking the Sand River and the rugged bushveld, or beneath the shady Marula trees. Starlit dinners are served around a log fire in the boma, or in the privacy of your suite. Children are well catered for with a range of activities including games, archery, cooking, and a Mini Rangers’ Course.

The tranquil swimming pool area has a gently cascading waterfall and comfortable sun loungers. The Bush Spa offers a range of revitalising and relaxing treatments, and guests may enjoy magnificent views while working out in the well-equipped gym.

Qualified rangers lead dawn and dusk game drives in open viewing vehicles, ensuring sightings of both diurnal and nocturnal creatures. Expert guides and trackers accompany guests on walking safaris, which provide a wonderful opportunity to track animals on foot and discover the secrets of the plants and landscapes. At night, crystal clear skies allow for stargazing.

The Sabi Sand region is one of the world’s most prolific wildlife areas. The region is home to the Big Five and famous for its big cat activity. Leopard sightings are common and there is a huge diversity of other mammals. Night game drives reveal seldom seen nocturnal creatures including hyena, black-backed jackal, porcupine, and honey badger.  There are also endangered species to be sighted here, including wild dog, black rhino, Ground hornbill, and ten bat species.

Sabi Sands is a great birding destination, with more than 300 bird species on its list. Notable species include the Bateleur eagle, Black-bellied bustard, Burchell’s coucal, Shelly’s francolin, Red-billed oxpecker, and Knob-billed duck. Other specialties include the Black-crowned night heron, Emerald cuckoo, Purple heron, and Verreaux’s eagle owl.

You could not ask for more, seriously the best accommodation I have ever stayed at. The food was phenomenal, the staff was outstanding, the accommodations are breathtaking, the scenery extraordinary, if there is a trip of a lifetime to save for, this is it!
I have never experienced such a wonderfully inviting place to stay. The staff were so welcoming and the guide and tracker were both phenomenal. It has to rank in my top 5 places ever. The accommodation was stunning with glorious views, The food was immense in both amounts and flavours. I cannot praise it higher and would go back tomorrow. The feeling on departure was one of great sadness as we felt we'd really made friends.Thank you for such a fantastic Singita Ebony Lodge - worth every single penny.
