overview

Singita Boulders Lodge is set in the exclusive Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve on the banks of the Sand River. Together with its neighbour, the famous Kruger National Park, Sabi offers 2.7 million hectares of unfenced, protected wilderness. Game roams freely between the two reserves, forming one of Africa’s most bio-diverse wildlife populations.

Sunrise and sunset game drives with professional rangers and skilled Shangaan trackers ensure close encounters with the Big 5. The reserve is particularly famous for its leopards and boasts an unrivalled record for the regularity and quality of sightings.

The lodge is sensitively designed to make the most of its tranquil setting. Should you tire of the spa or lazing beside your private plunge pool, guided nature walks and visits to a local village offer more active ways to unwind. The close of each thrilling day brings you home to Singita’s famous fine dining and the exceptional Boulders’ wine cellar.

Facilities

African afternoons are designed for rest and relaxation: recline beside your plunge pool or pamper your senses with a wellness treatment. Singita’s Health Consultant is on hand to arrange a massage treatment on your suite's private deck or in the spa, while the gym provides a unique vista for your workout. The lodge offers a comfortable communal lounge under thatch, which overlooks a picturesque pond and invites convivial conversation between guests.

However you spend the siesta period, a late afternoon game drive tempts you back into the wilderness to witness the glorious closing of the day, and the thrill of a spot-lit night drive back to the lodge. Each game drive adds zest to your anecdotes, shared over pre-dinner drinks with your fellow adventurers in the open-air boma. Singita’s fine dining combined with the Boulders’ exceptional wine cellar completes each day with a romantic, candlelit dinner under the stars.

Dining

Indulge in a fusion of contemporary African cuisine and modern European delicacies. The chef prepares African-inspired dishes with gourmet flair, such as chermoula-marinated tiger prawns with a delicate avocado salsa and juicy ostrich fillet with a cinnamon espresso jus.

Meals may be paired with exceptional South African wines from the liberal selection in the enticing Boulders’ cellar. The choice of dining venue is yours: enjoy a bush breakfast beneath the Marula trees, a star-lit dinner alongside the boma fire, or a candlelit dinner on your private deck.

River Suite

Singita Boulders is tastefully decorated in elegant neutrals and gorgeous African textures. The architecture is best described as organic; the lodge seems to have sprung forth from the wilderness around it. Your suite is spacious with superb views from the front-facing glass wall. This barely-there division between you and the wilderness beyond opens onto your private viewing deck, complete with a plunge pool and enticing loungers.

Accommodation is limited to 12 Luxury Suites, all overlooking the beautiful Sand River. These spacious suites feature king-sized beds with Egyptian cotton sheets and comfortable living areas. A special highlight is the glass-fronted bathroom, where you can relax in a huge ball-and-claw tub, looking out over the wilderness.

The service is thoughtful and discreet, with staff ensuring that a welcoming fire is lit in your stone fireplace on chilly evenings. They will also prepare a luxurious bubble bath ready for your return from the evening game drive.

Traveller Reviews

  • Top notch property. The service, guide, tracker and lodge manager were wonderful. Excellent sommelier, Chantelle, who is very helpful. The wine was outstanding! A pleasure from A to Z.

    Joseph Chami, January 2016
  • Outstanding! Singita Boulders Lodges was a 6 star experience!

    Bill Buckner, December 2015
  • Singita Boulders Lodge was perfect from the staff to the setting. The children adored Moses, the Butler. The staff's friendliness was refreshing!

    Doris Ng, October 2015
  • Great call on Boulders Lodge…we absolutely fell in love the place. Talk about royal treatment. Bill normally does not comment too much on places but he absolutely loved this place. I am so glad you recommended it to us as it had a more natural luxurious feel. We could not think of a single thing they could improve. Minutes after we checked into our room we heard a loud trumpet sound; we looked out the glass covered wall to see a herd of elephants crossing the river right in front of our place. Talk about a warm welcome! At lunch we saw rhino’s in the field across the river and a Kudu grazing alongside the river. I began to wonder if we needed to go on the evening game drive. We were thrilled that we saw all the animals we wanted to see including a standoff between a cheetah and hyena and a leopard perched on a termite mound waiting to pounce on the warthog hiding inside….and don’t let me forget the 1 week old baby giraffe. I always love a little adventure so when we got stuck crossing the river (with hippos close by) it added a little adrenaline to the mix. We had so much fun laughing about it afterwards whilst enjoying a glass of wine at the sundowner. All the game drives, food, entertainment, spa and staff was outstanding. Our guide Enos was very knowledgeable and personable and George was an amazing tracker. We felt like we hit the jackpot getting these 2 guys. Clifford our butler (that sounds so rich) was fabulous. He sure knew how to make us feel special.

  • The safari was the highlight. Singita is spectacular. It's the best service we have ever had and the safari was even better than we had hoped. Really teriffic.

    Bill Kelly, March 2013
  • Everything was wonderful! We made great friends with our game driver and the father and son that came along. The food was tops and the last night we were at Singita they surprised us with a fully set table in our room, petals and candles in the bathroom with a drawn bubble bath and champagne. They made a menu just for us and brought dinner to our room so it was very romantic and extremely thoughtful. They did an excellent job and were quite impressed.

    Stacey Howard, January 2013
  • No wonder this makes every top of the top travel list. Every aspect was perfection - the property! The guides! the wildlife!!!!! The food and wine! We were blown away. The attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff, with surprises every day made us feel like honored guests. I long to go back. We saw the Big 5 on the first afternoon and it just never stopped. We had a fantastic wine tasting that taught us so much about SA wines. And we loved a surprise tasting dinner in the bush illuminated by a hundred candles with the most glorious food. Unfortunately, I must have had a little too much fun, as I lost my camera that night and now suspect that a cheeky baboon is taking shots of his friends. The staff are superlative in every way, from the maids to the manager, Andrew. If I could design heaven, it would be Singita Boulders!

  • Boulders was absolutely heaven. Our room was fabulous and it is one place I would love to return to one day.

    Sabrina Barry, May 2012
  • Singita Boulders. Yes, well this lodge was impressive. The styling was really to our taste. The food and wine were exceptional. We were also fortunate the other two couples in the jeep were friendly and enthusiastic. Our guide Lisa and tracker Solomon were a great team. We were fortunate to see everything that we did. And really appreciate the enthusiasm and knowledge shown by Lisa. We enjoyed the opportunity to mountain bike and liked the fact the lodge moved the evening meal to different locations.
