Sabi Sands

Singita Ebony Lodge


Short snappy summary <8 words

Among giant trees alongside the Sand River, Singita Ebony Lodge is a contemporary take on old-world explorer charm.

Set in a 18,200 hectare private concession in the Sabi Sands Reserve, Ebony’s 12 suites are a stylish blend of stone, canvas and glass, opening out onto expansive decks with plunge pools and uninterrupted river views. A couple are idea for groups of friends or those with teenage children while two family suites are perfect for younger ones. These can be interconnected with an expansive lounge to create the completely private Ebony Villa.

The reserve is world-renowend for its wildlife and you can look forward to spotting leopards, lions, cheetahs, rhinos, elephants and wild dogs on expertly guided game drives and walking safaris. As a Singita lodge, expect exceptional food, convivial bar and an extremely well-stocked wine cellar too.

Community & Culture

All Singita lodges work in partnership with their local communities and aim to meet their community development goals of assisting people that live in and around the reserves to thrive both economically and socially.


Singita’s aim is to be a caretaker of Africa’s most vulnerable flora and fauna and they have committed to a 100-year plan to preserve and protect African wilderness for future generations. Large scale projects in wildlife management, protection, ecosystem integrity, sustainable tourism and community development have helped to build a Singita’s model to balance tourism and conservation.


Through their principled and forward-thinking approach, Singita has created a 100-year vision to conserve, preserve and protect the land in their care. They have partnered with Bioregional to implement One Planet Living’s values as well as working closely with Tesla and renewable energy supplier SolarAfrica to install an off-grid, renewable energy plant to help with their aim of becoming carbon neutral.
