Lodge style Luxury with a view

A modern sanctuary in Kruger National Park

Recently ranked as the 15th best hotel globally by The World’s 50 Best Hotels in 2023, Singita Lebombo stands out for its architectural prowess and exceptional setting. Perched above the N’wanetsi River, the lodge is an homage to the intricacy of eagles’ nests, featuring organic structures that appear to float between the river and the sky. Guests are invited into a world where luxury meets nature, with communal areas designed to bring the outside in, enriching every moment with breathtaking views of the dramatic landscape adorned with giant euphorbia trees.

Singita Lebombo hosts a variety of suites, including 13 suites and 2 exceptional two-bedroom suites, each offering magnificent views of the river and the latter equipped with a private plunge pool. These larger suites provide a perfect blend of intimacy and lavishness, ideal for families or small groups seeking a more secluded experience.

Each suite, whether one or two-bedroom, showcases sophisticated, contemporary design. Inspired by the nests of eagles, these accommodations are constructed with a delightful mix of glass, wood, steel, and layered fabrics in muted tones that echo the natural surroundings. The glass-walled sanctuaries offer unobstructed views of the surrounding mountains and the river below, creating a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living.
