overview

The Lodge is situated on the lush banks of the Sweni River in a pristine corner of the famous Kruger National Park. Built on stilts with spacious timber decks, the Lodge’s architecture was inspired by the structures of dens and lairs found in the area.

Encounter a rich diversity of birdlife and abundant wildlife year-round on game drives, guided bush walks and mountain bike expeditions. Between adventures, hone your archery skills, indulge in spa treatments, sample rare South African wines, or visit the Singita Cooking School.

This intimate, romantic Lodge accommodates only 12 guests in six stunning riverside suites, each elevated on stilts and tucked away among lush trees. The floor-to-ceiling glass creates a seamless flow between the landscape and the interior, where nature is masterfully echoed in the décor’s palette and textures.

Singita’s signature fine dining melds African cuisine with global flavours and is accompanied by award-winning wines and superb service.

Facilities

The Lodge features an open-sided lounge that flows out onto a spacious timber deck dining area with lovely views over the verdant river banks. Sip cocktails at the bar or take a dip in the sparkling pool to the sounds of huffing hippo and prolific birdlife.

The lounge area features both a fireplace for chilly evenings and comfortable couches for lazy afternoons. The Lodge’s wine cellar will likely inspire you to visit Lebombo Village, where the wine boutique offers informed tastings of some rare South African wines.

The Village is also home to an art gallery, gym and health spa, along with a fascinating interactive ranger centre and various boutiques.

Dining

The Lodge’s kitchen serves inspired dishes to satisfy both adventurous and conservative palates. A fusion of fresh African ingredients, delicious flavours and gourmet standards creates a menu to savour.

Dinner is served around the fire or on the dining deck, softly lit by lanterns. The service is excellent and courses are impeccably paired with award-winning wines. For a romantic treat, request dinner for two in the wine cellar.

Traveller Reviews

  • Singita Sweni • Service – substandard for Singita. The two managers are very nice and try to be helpful but they are very green and also talk too much (particularly one of them) as they try to be extra friendly • Rooms – very good but after Boulders and little Ongava they seem just OK • Communal areas - good • Internet access – BIG ISSUE: it is slow and unreliable. They should do something about it but, again, lack of management seniority does not help • Food – very good • Beverages – excellent wines • Game drives/activities – good but not outstanding • Guides – guide and tracker were very friendly but seemed to need some pushing to deliver the expected animal sightings

  • We absolutely love the small and beautiful lodge. The game drives were excellent.
