Best place on Earth, I'm not sure one can fully detail the experience to the level of what was felt and seen. Wesley was our guide and Peter was our tracker, both were unbelievable in kindness, knowledge and safety. We saw the biggest python either men have seen there, tracked by Peter and then Wesley educated us on the details.... More

Okay. I have to admit. I love the Singita properties and have never had anything other than a fantastic experience there...Our trip this year to Singita Ebony was perfection. We had not been there since 1997. Normally, we stay at Boulders, which is also spectacular. That being said, Ebony is our new favorite for the Sabi Sand. If you can,... More

Everything I was looking for in an African experience was realized at this amazing location. The lodge had just the right combination of pampering and rustic feel. The staff was there to full every need and those you did not know you even had! The game drives were fabulous. I felt like a gentle presence in the bush observing the... More

It's hard to explain what an amazing experience we had during our stay at Ebony.... This was our first trip to Africa. Ebony was our 3rd stop in our 27 day adventure. It could not have been more perfect - from the very moment we stepped off the little plane to see Sipho and Andrew waiting for us to the... More

A Wonderful warm & genuine welcome when we arrived at the lodge. It's absolutely stunning and if like me it's your 1st safari, then it's exactly like you imagine a quality traditional safari lodge should be, it's this & much more, like a movie setting, except real! We were shown to our lodge - number 6 - detached. It didn't... More

We visited 3 camps two years ago, and while each was great, Ebony Lodge stood above the others. In fact we are returning to Africa in a couple of weeks (Oct. 2016) for 3 more weeks of Safari and sightseeing, the one camp we are returning to is Ebony Lodge. Words cannot express a trip to the wilds of Africa,... More

Where do I begin? Singita Ebony Lodge is spectacular in every way. We were greeted at the airstrip with a refreshing drink and warm smiles by our guide (Johan) and our tracker (Vusi).

What a beautiful lodge over looking Sabi sands. The " rooms" are huge. The private plunge pool was a hit. Food was outstanding. Service was top notch. Game drives were very good. Singita does a wonderful job and I can't recommend this lodge enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the original Singita lodge, Ebony stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa's 'big cat country.' The lodge takes safari design and style to a new level with a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge, combining tented camp and bush lodge style. Guests are immersed in nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom. ... more   less
