Singita Ebony Lodge is ideally situated in the heart of the Sabi Sands Reserve. Its graceful aesthetic includes timeworn colonial furniture and ethnic crafts, creating a classic atmosphere. Nestled in the shade of jackalberry trees on the bank of the Sand River, the 12 thatched suites at Singita Ebony are places of sublime luxury and quiet contemplation, featuring opulent touches like fireplaces and private heated pools. Juxtaposing global cuisine with traditional African ingredients, the Singita style combines simplicity with an abundance of flavour. Excellent produce, well prepared and presented, is accompanied by truly inspirational surroundings. Complementing the exceptional cuisine, each Singita lodge has a unique and comprehensive wine cellar. The Singita wine program consists of approximately 35,000 bottles of the finest South African wines. The Sabi Sands gets its name the perennial Sand River that bisects the reserve and the fine, sandy substrate found throughout. Globally renowned for its diversity and concentration of big game, the Sabi Sands features broad, open savannah interspersed with acacia thornveld, rocky outcrops and riverine forest. Herds of buffalo and elephant, large prides of lion, majestic leopard and antelope by the thousands make the 18 500 hectare Singita Private Game Reserve, at the heart of the Sabi Sands, one of the finest locations for viewing the Big Five anywhere in the world.
