Singita unveiled a complete re-design of its original lodge, Singita Ebony, in South Africa. Singita Ebony is where the Singita story began twenty-two years ago on land owned by Singita founder, Luke Bailes. The re-launch completes Singita’s reinvention of its private 45,000 acre game reserve that is set within the Sabi Sand.
The result Is the most innovative collection of safari lodges in Southern Africa. Situated over the Sabi Sand River, Singita Ebony Lodge is already considered one of Africa’s most iconic lodges and was revolutionary in its pioneering approach to the modern luxury safari experience.
The new Ebony takes safari design and style to a new level altogether, as it is transformed by leading South African designers Cecile & Boyd. Their unique vision creates a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge combining tented camp and bush lodge style. Guests will literally be immersed into nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom.
The new Singita Ebony Lodge comprises 12 suites, each with its own private plunge pool. Dramatic changes include internal and external walls being almost completely removed from the existing lodge and replaced by canvas and glass to create new safari tent-style suites to maximise views and space. Outdoor pavilion decks ideal for dining and relaxing are suspended off the river banks as if hanging in the trees.
Oversized sepia photography, art and objects, as well as glamorous leopard and zebra animal print upholstery fabric, complementing bold graphic tribal patterned murals replace animal skins to ensure the message is about conservation rather than man conquering animals or subduing nature.
Suites at Singita Ebony Lodge start from ZAR 17 300 per person per night. Further Info: www.singita.com
