Lose yourself in South Africa, home to one of the richest ecosystems in the world. Not only will you find a stunning variety of plants and animals here, but you’ll also discover some of the world’s best hotels.
Book a suite at the Singita Sabi Sands Game Reserve and discover why this haven of luxury was named the Best Hotel in the World for the third time in 2008 by Travel + Leisure Magazine. Singita (“place of miracles”) offers first-class facilities and services you won’t normally find in other hotels, and is renowned for providing the best Safari experience in Africa. Head to the deck of the main lodge for an unforgettable dining experience, and indulge in a delectable meal inspired by African flavours fused with Western culinary traditions, while taking in the view of the Sand River below.
Singita offers other amenities; the gym provides a lovely view of the African wild. If your workout session gets too tough, you can retreat to the spa where a diversity of treatments awaits. Choose from ancient Thai massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, or seaweed wraps. You can have a facial and a manicure, too. Experience true adventure when night sets in – go on a night safari and expect to see the Big Five (five of Africa’s greatest wild animals: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino), as well as general game and assorted birds.
