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.

I was having trouble finding game lodges in and around Kruger Park. Sara Van Coille of was very helpful in this regard, responding promptly to my questions and request, as this was all done over e-mail. Will be staying at Lukimbi, a game lodge within Kruger Park.

Planning a Safari can be daunting
My wife and I have not travelled overseas in over 10 years and I was intimidated by all the options out there for booking a safari. I provided my budget and Sara did an amazing job putting together some packages for me to look at and choose from. We communicated back and forth several times and eventually settled on a package. She confirmed everything and we were off and running. I booked our flights to and from the country but once we arrived there was a driver from the airport and everything from the moment we touched down in South Africa until we were wheels up was perfectly curated. This was a bucket list trip for my wife but now we will be trying to return as soon as we can!

Sara Van Coillie has been extremely helpful in making our Namibia trip fantastic! We have emails up on emails of Sara answering all my (many) questions months and months before our trip. I've had last minute questions and requests right before and during our trip and she always responds with record time and helps us out. I feel all of our needs have been met and I couldn't be happier with Sara as our travel representative! Highly recommend her! :)
