Singita Lebombo Lodge Review

Taking its name from the Lebombo mountain range, Singita Lebombo, winner of numerous international accolades and eco-driven in concept, has been built "to touch the ground lightly." It hangs seemingly suspended on the edge of a cliff, like a huge glass box in space. Wooden walkways connect the aptly named "lofts" (suites), all of which have an uncluttered style and spectacular views of the river and bushveld below. Outdoor and indoor areas fuse seamlessly. Organic materials—wood, cane, cotton, and linen—are daringly juxtaposed with steel and glass. This is Bauhaus in the bush, with a uniquely African feel. Public areas are light, bright, and airy, furnished with cane furniture, crisp white cushions, comfy armchairs, and recliners. Service is superb, as is the food, and nothing is left to chance. You can buy African art and artifacts at the classy Trading Post or enjoy a beauty treatment at the spa.
