Singita Ebony is part of the famed family of five-star Singita lodge properties dotted through South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Like its counterparts, it offers an extraordinary safari and wildlife experience. As its name suggests, the lodge is situated in an ancient forest of ebony trees on the banks of the Sand River. It’s here that you’ll find an oasis of thoroughly beguiling calm – Ebony oozes sophistication without a hint of stuffiness. And, thanks to the Singita brand’s unique focus on comfort and seamless service, you and your family will feel immediately welcomed and at home. Worn leather, animal hides and framed historical images set the tone and invite conversations with the passionate staff, many of whom have been with the lodge since it opened.
Ebony Lodge has 12 private suites and one villa. It has combined a classic under-thatch lodge look-and-feel with elements of a traditional tented safari camp. Add to this a plethora of natural wooden details, glass walls that let in the views, suspended decks that leave you feeling as though you’re absolutely immersed in the outdoor surrounds, plus the constant soundtrack as the breeze riffles through the trees and you have a truly magical African safari experience.
And let’s not forget the wildlife. One of the forerunners of conservation endeavours in southern Africa, Singita is proud of its legacy of preservation and species renewal. Any visitor to this pristine private game reserve will find it impossible not to be moved by the efforts made in conservation, as well as the amazing animal and big cat sightings guaranteed on every game drive and even from the comfort of your own suite.
Singita Ebony is well versed in hosting family groups and there are a number of suites catering for families or groups travelling together – the private villa, for example, has two private suites as well as a dedicated guide, safari vehicle, chef and host. Daily game drives leave the lodge morning and in the afternoon, taking you on bush odysseys in search of everything from hippo to zebra. Of course, the Ebony experience is about relaxing at the lodge, too – whether floating in the pool, enjoying a massage at the spa or indulging in an expert-led wine tasting in the cellar, there is a myriad ways to while away your days on African time.
