Overall Impressions

Our trip to South Africa was absolutely incredible. From the food, service, and hospitality of all the places we stayed were outstanding. We loved the safari game drives and thought both Singita lodges were breathtaking and first class. They both provided experienced guides and trackers along with friendly and accommodating staff. We also enjoyed experiencing and comparing the two different regions of Kruger Park. The professional service, design and luxury amenities of the Singita properties definitely made this trip an unforgettable one!

Countries Visited

South Africa 5

South Africa is a beautiful country with very friendly and passionate people. The safaris were definitely the highlights of our trip!

Accommodation Visited

The Residence 5

The Residence was a lovely place to stay. I wish we could have stayed more than one night. The boutique style hotel gave a romantic and peaceful atmosphere to the property. Our room was large with beautiful amenities. The food was excellent and the staff provided personal attention which made you feel special. This hotel would be perfect for a romantic and relaxing weekend get away!

Singita Lebombo Lodge 5

Singita's Lebombo lodge was absolutely stunning. The lodge provided first class service every step of the way. The staff was very accommodating and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The chefs were outstanding and talented. I requested vegan meals prior to our stay and they went above and beyond providing exquisite vegan food for me. I had my own custom vegan menu for each meal along with vegan snacks before and during each game drive! The Lebombo suites were large and beautifully decorated with a modern glamour feel. Our game drives were an incredible experience for themselves. We were provided with fleece blankets, ponchos and warm water pads to keep us warm in the morning. Our guide (Chris) impressed us with his level of expertise in all facets of the outdoors; from astronomy to wildlife, he was more than passionate about every detail. He planned a special night for our group to look at the stars and made it an unforgettable evening. We never thought we would experience luxury like that in the bush and hope to come back one day!

Singita Boulders Lodge 5

Singita's Boulders was breathtaking. The gorgeous property fit right in with the incredible landscape that surrounds it. The size and details of the room were unbelievable. We had a private heated plunge pool with a beautiful view of the Sand River. Our bed comforter had an electric heater so it would be nice and warm for you before getting into bed. Again, the staff and chefs went above and beyond to provide you first class service. We really enjoyed the game drives in Sabi Sands and felt like we saw more wild life in a shorter amount of time which aloud us a longer relaxing period in-between the 2 daily game drives. My husband and I got to experience a Spa treatment and we were extremely satisfied. Over all, the Singita Boulders property was an experience for itself. Everything was just over the top and beautiful!

Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa 5

The Saxon hotel was an elegant and peaceful one night stay. The grounds were beautifully decorated and the staff were very attentive. The room was comfortable and spacious with lovely amenities. We ate dinner at the restaurant Qunu inside the Saxon and the food and service were superb. The breakfast buffet the next morning was above and beyond. Once again, first class service!
