Luxury Lodges: South Africa
Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa
Singita Boulders Lodge has a contemporary air of tranquillity that honors Africa in an authentic way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an enormous boulder that sat right in the middle of the place where the wine cellar was to be built. A simple decision was made to build the cellar around the boulder!
Guests can enjoy wrap-around views from most parts of the natural stone lodge, and the lookout deck offers the perfect spot from which to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The quiet pond alongside the thatched lounge area allows the light and the landscape inside to the wide open spaces, where straw baskets, neutral shades, and textured fabrics complement wooden furniture. Private game viewing and ultimate luxury are paired here for an unforgettable safari experience.
