Star Rating:

Singita Ebony Lodge is located in the Sabi Sands Reserve of Kruger Park and is the perfect mix of familiar comfort and luxury

The secluded thatched suites at Ebony Lodge are the epitome of elegant comfort. They are cosy and styled with an eclectic mix of rich colours, fabrics and a variety of textures. Traditional Egyptian cotton, linen and prints. African textiles and throws, antiques and modern luxuries combine harmoniously to create a homely, lived-in feel. Beyond the enormous bathroom and outdoor shower area is a vast wooden deck with a pool overlooking the Sand River, offering quiet refuge for solitary relaxation and is not uncommon to see elephant, buffalo and antelope grazing only metres away at any time of day. Perhaps this is where the notion of an ‘armchair safari’ was perfected...

Singita Ebony Lodge offers twelve suites, all with their own en suite bathroom and shower, outside shower, heated private swimming pool, double-sided fireplace, mini bar and fridge, room mini safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, private lounge, direct dial telephones and game-viewing deck.

What To Bring:

Since we want your safari experience to be perfect and completely comfortable, we recommend a few items that we believe you should remember to bring along:

  • From June to September be sure to pack a few warmer items for cooler mornings and evenings. Days are warm, but a jacket/fleece will be needed for the safaris.
  • From October to December temperatures rise and cool, light clothing is once again recommended.
  • Try to keep colours neutral for the safaris. Dark colours such as navy blue and black tend to attract the tsetse flies and other bugs.
  • Comfortable walking shoes, track shoes or boots will be suitable as well as sandals to wear around at meals and within the lodge area.
  • Shorts or skirts and short-sleeve shirts for the warm midday periods.
  • Dinners are casual, except at Sasakwa Lodge which lends itself to smart/casual evening attire.
  • Swimming costume.
  • Sun block, sun hat, sunglasses and lip balm.
  • Mosquito / insect repellant.
  • Malaria prophylaxis (see our note on Health matters.)
  • Extra pair of correction glasses (if you wear them).
  • Contact lens solution and an extra set of contact lenses (if required).
  • Cameras, binoculars and your favourite film. We do sell film at the lodges but our stock is very limited.
  • Spare memory card if you use a digital camera.
  • Video camera and a spare battery. (Batteries can be recharged in your suite; electricity voltage is 220V. Power converters and spare video cassettes are available on request).
  • Each room is equipped with bathrobes, slippers, hair dryer and basic amenities.
