Singita Sweni Lodge is in the East of the Kruger Park near the Lebombo mountains, and the design of this beautiful lodge was influenced by the structures of dens, warrens and lairs found in the area.
Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts with decks of timber. Even when you're indoors, you'll have the sensation of being close to the river and trees.
The main lodge boasts lounge and timber deck dining areas with views of the bush & Sweni river, a bar area, a lounge area (complete with fireplace), a swimming pool and a wine cellar
The area boast spectacular scenery and superb game viewing, including a wealth of Big 5, abundant antelope and birdlife, and an incredible diversity of smaller animals.
Guests can enjoy viewing game from open Land Rovers on morning and afternoon drives, accompanied by experienced rangers and trackers. Bush walks and spotlit night safaris are available.
Singita Sweni has just 7 secluded suites, with tactile furnishings, which have been carefully created to reflect the textures and shades of the bush. Designed with open-plan living in mind, your suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom.
The luxury air-conditioned suites have floor-to-ceiling glass walls, luxurious bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, an expansive living area, mini bar and fridge, room safe and private wooden leisure decks with a day bed.
Try the outdoor shower overlooking the river or - for a magical experience - 'camp out' under the stars on the day bed out on your viewing deck.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
Three meals per day; all drinks, including premium wines, spirits and liqueurs (excluding champagnes); and open Land Rover shared game drives accompanied by experienced guides and trackers are included.
