We stayed at Sweni and Ebony and the higher level of service at Ebony was notable. The staff really went out of their way to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need. The room was large and well appointed, had a great view and the private pool was just the best. Our first safari was in Kenya...

If you want to plan a trip that will top all trips, head to Africa! This is my second time at Sigita and I LOVED IT AGAIN! From the time you arrive, until you leave, you will be mesmerized! We went on amazing photo safaris every day! They never get old!

My husband, our grown daughters and I have just returned from South Africa and had the pleasure of spending four nights at Singita Ebony followed by 4 nights at Lebombo (separate review). We had already been to Lebombo in 2014 and to Boulders in 2015. This was my third safari but surprisingly enough it is a completely new experience every...

Staying here was the best decision we could have made. The staff were so friendly and amazing and we loved our luxurious accommodation. The highlight of course was the safaris and we saw everything that we wanted too - up close! We saw elephants, lions, leopard, cheetahs, zebras, impalas, hyenas, warthogs and wilder beasts. Our ranger, Stacey, was so amazing...

We stayed here at the weekend having previously visited another Singita property, Lembomo and whilst both lodges are different in style, they both deliver an exceptional customer experience. The rooms were stunning with marvelous views over the river where you can sit on your private stoop and watch elephants and game wander by. We were accompanied on the game drives...

Best place on Earth, I'm not sure one can fully detail the experience to the level of what was felt and seen. Wesley was our guide and Peter was our tracker, both were unbelievable in kindness, knowledge and safety. We saw the biggest python either men have seen there, tracked by Peter and then Wesley educated us on the details....

Okay. I have to admit. I love the Singita properties and have never had anything other than a fantastic experience there...Our trip this year to Singita Ebony was perfection. We had not been there since 1997. Normally, we stay at Boulders, which is also spectacular. That being said, Ebony is our new favorite for the Sabi Sand. If you can,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the original Singita lodge, Ebony stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa's 'big cat country.' The lodge takes safari design and style to a new level with a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge, combining tented camp and bush lodge style. Guests are immersed in nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom. ... more   less
