Singita Sabi Sand is a privately owned game reserve in the Sabi Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Spanning more than 45,000 acres, Singita Sabi Sand is renowned for high concentrations of big game and frequent leopard sightings. Here you will find Singita Ebony Lodge.
As the original Singita lodge, Ebony stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa’s ‘big cat country.’ A blend of European heritage and African boldness welcomes visitors with the down-to-earth warmth of a much-loved family home. Spacious interiors are styled with a varied mix of rich colours, and inviting textures and layers, making Singita Ebony Lodge an idyllic retreat. The lodge comprises just 12 secluded suites, each of which are the epitome of elegant comfort, and two of which are perfectly suited to accommodate families. En-suite bathrooms, an indoor-outdoor shower, private heated plunge pools, and spacious game viewing decks complete the luxurious accommodation.
Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals, while spot lit nighttime drives reveal the elusive magic of nocturnal Africa. Our game drives are all conducted in state-of-the-art Land Rovers, each accommodating a maximum of six guests. During your stay at Singita Sabi Sand, you are likely to spot a great variety of wildlife including leopard, lion, rhino, large herds of buffalo, elephant, reedbuck, hyena, hippopotamus, nyala, cheetah, wild dogs and many species of birds.
Walking safaris are an incredible way to experience the bush up close and personal. Your expert guide and tracker will accompany you as you track animals on foot through the wilderness and explore the magnificent plants and landscapes around you.
For the adventurous guest, a mountain bike ride through the reserve just can’t be beat. Your guide and tracker will accompany you as you explore the vast beauty of this rugged landscape. Mountain bikes and helmets are provided.
There is perhaps no more transcendent experience than looking up at a full sky of sparkling stars. Man has had a love affair with the nighttime sky for centuries and with very little pollution and no city lights to detract from the stars, your view of the heavens here will be crystal clear – nothing between you and the vast African sky above.
Spend a morning taking lessons from your guide on how to shoot with a bow and arrow.
Perhaps Africa’s greatest beauty is its people and, as part of Singita’s deep commitment to community development and upliftment, guests are invited to visit the nearby communities of Justicia and Lillydale that border the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The Singita Community Development Trust works in partnership with the READ Educational Trust and their Growing to Read programme to initiate Early Childhood Development practices in pre-schools. Guests can meet the children in the playrooms and learn about this vital programme, as well as witness many other areas of interest and cultural significance on the community visit.
The Singita wellness philosophy takes personal rejuvenation to a level well beyond any pampering you’ve previously experienced. All of our peaceful lodge spas, where nature provides its own special calm, present the ultimate escape, sure to restore equilibrium and peace to body and mind.
Fully equipped gyms are available for guests’ convenience. Each facility provides picturesque views of the bush, allowing you to keep an eye on the action outside while you work out.
At Singita Ebony Lodge each suite has its own private plunge pool and there is also a swimming pool in the main lodge area.

The game drives were amazing. Our guide and tracker were enthusiastic and knowledgable, and they always tried to make sure we had the best possible experience. We had some good luck and saw four of the big five throughout our four game drives, plus lots of other animals along the way.
