Just returned from three nights at Singita Ebony...our first safari as well as the first time in South Africa.
Overall a wonderful experiencing. The room (river view) was incredible, with a huge viewing patio (with private "dipping" pool) with a view of the river where one can see numerous antelope, and occasional elephants, rhino, leopards, and many other animals.
Our personal ranger (Michelle) and tracker ("Fen") were outstanding in every respect. Michelle's love and and enthusiasm for nature and the animals was infectious, and her very personal attention made the trip all the more special. Fen could see things that were almost unbelievable...he would spot a lion from 1/2 mile away that we could barely see with binoculars. He once spotted a chameleon on a tree (which one could barely see from 6 inches away) while moving in our vehicle from probably 30 yards.
The staff was incredible with lots of attention to personal needs.
The one area where they could really use improvement was the food. It was a bit spotty in terms of quality and delivery. Orders were often a bit off, and the food was regularly a bit cold, Meats ordered medium would arrive bloody rare (as an example). They try very hard, but this could really be much better.
