Located within a 13,000 hectare private concession in the south east region of the Kruger National Park is the exclusive Singita Sweni Lodge. Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts, giving you the sensation of being outdoors close to the river and trees, even when you are indoors.
The six secluded suites have been influenced by the structures of dens, warrens and lairs found in the area. They have been carefully created with tactile furnishings to bring in the textures and shades of the bush. Designed with open-plan living in mind, your suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom; yet should you wish, each area may be sealed off by curtains. Suites include floor-to-ceiling glass walls, luxurious bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers that overlook the river, an expansive living area, minibar and a private leisure deck with a day bed that can be used to “camp out” under the stars. The main lodge boasts a timber deck lounge and dining area with breathtaking views onto the bush and Sweni River, a bar, additional lounge with a fireplace, a wine cellar and swimming pool.
Activities available include twice daily game drives with professional guides and trackers, guided safari walks on request, mountain biking and archery.
