There are now 12 properties in the Singita group and each offers something truly unique, be it its position, style and design or, of course, the animal sightings and wildlife experiences specific to their location. Something each lodge shares is a quest to provide the very best in exclusive safari experiences – and Singita Boulders Lodge is certainly no exception. When it was first built in 1996, Boulders Lodge was boundary-breaking in its bold organic design, and now, since its recent refurb, it’s even more impressive. The new space by acclaimed lodge designer Boyd Ferguson goes all out to provide authentic tranquillity and unashamed luxury, and it works. On arrival, you truly will find yourself enveloped in a cocoon of comfort where service is seamless, where wildlife sightings are plentiful and where chill time is paramount.
The new Boulders Lodge is inspired by the rawest elements of nature and indeed the lodge, nestled among the enormous boulders it is named for, seems to sit within the surrounds rather than on them – the “treading lightly” philosophy really is evident here. Your suite is one of only 12, each of which is a considered play on contemporary five-star luxury – the luxury certainly is evident in the privacy, uninterrupted views of the bush and details like your own plunge pool, the very best linen and furniture hewn from a slew of natural materials. And while Singita Boulders may well be one of the most romantic safari destinations in the business, the lodge is family-friendly, too, welcoming children over the age of 10 and ensuring the tailormade itineraries keep everyone enthralled.
The Sabi Sand Reserve, where Singita Boulders is situated, is big cat country and the sightings are truly extraordinary – recent studies show that the Sabi Sand has the highest number of leopards of any protected area surveyed in South Africa, an astonishing 12,2 leopards per 100km2. Of course, you will be spoilt for choice in this Big Five wilderness, with superb sightings on each and every morning and night game drive. Singita Boulders has gone out of its way to create a uniquely thoughtful offering on every level – the impressive dining here is a case in point; every meal, from sundowner snacks to brunch and multicourse dinners, is a gourmet occasion. For gourmands, the wine experience at Singita Boulders is one for the books. An on-site sommelier guides you through stellar cellar choices at dinner, offers guided wine tastings in between game drives and even advises you on orders to be shipped home – now that’s a wonderful way to remember one of the best safari experiences in Africa!
