Singita, meaning "the Miracle" in the local Shangaan language - is exquisite luxury, rare solitude and perfect tranquility in a jewel-like setting where dedicated, professional staff seek to pamper and please you. World class comfort, style, food and rare vintage wines stroke the senses. Exclusive accommodation is for the discerning traveler and our attention to detail is unsurpassed. Discover why the finest private game reserve in Africa has earned worldwide renown as the ultimate wildlife safari. Singita has abundant wildlife, with a higher bio-mass of animals per hectare than the internationally renowned Kruger National Park. The park has a tremendous trove of wildlife treasures with the crown jewels being Africa's fearsome big five: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros.
Relais & Chateaux
This is Africa's big game terrain, so your days and early nights will blissfully revolve around spectacular game viewing drives in Land Rovers. Driving in open safari Land Rovers allows for panoramic vision of the bush. Only six people are permitted per vehicle, leaving space for photographic and binocular equipment. For guests wanting private drives, Land Rovers can be hired. The nocturnal safaris open up a totally new world and a powerful spotlight illuminates the shy and sometimes rare wildlife. On night safaris, when the heat of the day has subsided, the predators such as lion, leopard, hyena, blackbacked jackal and the owls start their hunting. Drinks are served in the bush at sunset as a gentle introduction to the nocturnal bush. Refresh and revitalize your mind and body at our exclusive Bush Spa. Fully trained therapists will pamper you with facials, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures. Our therapists use the well known Dermalogica range of products. Most of these treatments can be done in the privacy of your suite or on your private deck overlooking the Sand River. For those who prefer a more energetic form of relaxation, we have a gym equipped with treadmills, step machines, stationary bicycles and various weight training apparatus. Your workout is complete with a cleansing steam treatment in our steam room.
Game viewing is often at its best from the end of March to the end of August because of sparser vegetation and greater animal congregations around waterholes. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a mostly flat landscape of undulating crests with some rocky outcrops, bisected by the Sand River. Sabi Sand Game Reserve is at an altitude of about 350 meters above sea level. Singita is situated at 380 meters above sea level in South Africa's Lowveld region. The South African region experiences one of the highest average number of sunshine hours in the world. The Lowveld experiences dry mild winters from May to September and hot to very hot summers, accompanied by afternoon thunderstorms, from October to April.
