Singita Kruger stands out as the most luxurious concession actually set within the Kruger National Park. As a private concession, guests have exclusive access off road throughout the concession. The landscape of this area is a mixture of dramatic ridges and wide open plains, punctuated with rivers and forest. Singita’s properties take full advantage of the terrain, with Lebombo sitting on a bluff granting fantastic views across the park, whilst Sweni sits above the banks of a hippo-rich river.
Service and comfort is world-class and is the very best inside the national park. The lodges both sit in the same area (around ten minutes’ walk from each other) and share a spa and a curio shop that has to be seen to be believed. As with all Singita properties the food and wine is a particular highlight.
The Singita concession is particularly famed for its ‘mountain pride’ of Lions, which can number more than twenty. If lucky, guests can have the privilege of seeing these enormous groups of Lion.
Game drives are conducted with a guide and spotter, and short game walks are also possible.
