Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
Singita Sabi Sand
Singita Sabi Sand Review
Although Singita (Shangaan for "the miracle") offers much the same bush and game experience as the other lodges, nothing is too much trouble here. Lodges offer low-key opulence, comforting organic atmosphere, truly spacious accommodations, superb food and wine, and variety of public spaces—quiet little private dining nooks to a huge viewing deck built round an ancient jackalberry tree, comfortable library with TV and Internet, and attractive poolside bar—really do put this gorgeous lodge head and shoulders above the rest of the herd. Whether you fancy a starlit private supper, a riverside breakfast, or just chilling alone in your megasuite, you've only to ask. Forget the usual lodge curio shop and take a ride to the Trading Post where objets d'art, unique handmade jewelry, classy bush gear, and artifacts from all over Africa are clustered together in a series of adjoining rooms and courtyards that seem more like someone's home than a shop. Pop into the wine cellars and learn about the finest South African wines from the resident sommelier, and then choose some to be shipped directly home. If you're feeling energetic, the bush bike rides are great.
