Situated on an exclusive 33 000 hectare concession on the remote eastern boundary of the Kruger National Park, Singita’s Lebombo Lodge offers a diverse habitat in the shadow of the Lebombo Mountain range. Rocky outcrops and an abundance of water provide habitation for a diverse range of animals. The concession is home to the Big 5, as well as to cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, hippo, wildebeest, kudu, crocodile and many other mammal, reptile and bird species.
Lebombo Lodge is a sophisticated, Afro-chic retreat where guests will experience the best of Africa - majestic, unfiltered and unadorned. Its sweeping wooden decks overlook a favourite watering spot for elephant. This private concession in the Kruger National Park is for the exclusive of Singita Lebombo guests.
Singita’s concession in the Kruger National Park was granted in 2001, in part because of Singita’s outstanding commitment to conservation, as well as its minimal environmental footprint. Singita's mission is to create and maintain a balance between conservation, community development, and ecotourism. The lodge has been built with this ideal in mind and integrates the ‘touch the earth lightly’ philosophy into every aspect of its daily operations.
Singita Lebombo lie in the south-eastern reaches of the Kruger National Park, on South Africa’s border with Mozambique. Situated on 33 000 acres, Singita’s concession is an isolated piece of pristine wilderness where a unique wildlife population thrives across four distinct ecological zones. This area is especially well known for the remarkable concentration of the Big 5 and for four particularly formidable prides of lions.
The 15 refreshingly luxurious suites have sweeping 360º views of the Lebombo Mountains and surrounding bushveld. Each boasts an elegant loft architecture featuring vast expanses of glass and timber. With their floor to ceiling windows, the suites blend beautifully with the landscape. Living space is generous and sumptuously furnished. Singita Lebombo is more than simply a safari lodge, it's a feeling that will remain a part of you long after you have departed.
The main lodge boasts an open-plan lounge area, complete with a library and basic internet and computer facilities. Dining areas overlook the expanse of the Lebombo concession.
