Staying at Singita Lebombo Lodge Kruger National Park South Africa is like existing inside a magazine photo shoot in one of the largest game reserves in the world. Surrounded by exotic flora and fauna miles away from civilisation, the lodge offers a calming, soothing ambience. The Singita Lebombo Lodge Kruger National Park South Africa is bold, breathtaking and a world class location for diverse game viewing opportunities.
Look & Feel
Lebombo was conceptualised to give guests the sense of being in an eagle’s nest perched on the edge of the world and its construction and appearance are as unique as they come. The contemporary buildings have no solid form, with a unique construction style that uses wood and steel encased in glass. The famous South African Cecile & Boyd design team brought their magic touch to the lodge with glass box suites that rest on a scaffold-style frame barely touching the ground, leaving visitors suspended over the landscapes in absolute magnificence. The delicate, light interiors feature open, breezy spaces that exude freedom and serenity from their position on a rocky cliff overlooking the N’wanetsi River.
The design concept is stylish and contemporary, with a colour palette of ripening corn through straw to old oak designed, as the lodge owner describes, ‘to cosset people in waves of harmony and tranquillity.’ The Singita Lebombo Lodge Kruger National Park South Africa reaped multiple style awards when it first opened in 2003, and remains relevant and cutting edge today.
“The lodge reaped multiple style awards when it first opened and remains relevant and cutting edge today.”
Singita’s ethos to ‘Touch the Earth Lightly’ ensures that Singita Lebombo Lodge Kruger National Park South Africa barely impacts on the environment. The skill and imagination that has gone into creating the ultimate living space that is Lebombo appears deceptively simple, but creature comforts has been considered, including a day bed on your private balcony which can be made up for a sleepover under the stars. Views from the balcony stretch across the gorge and down to the river where binoculars (supplied) allow you to identify hippos and crocs, fish, eagles and a myriad of other birds. This is big game safari; leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra…with probably the largest pride of lions living on the rocky escarpment and sightings exceeding 20 lions at a time.
The Singita School of Cooking was designed to increase the skill level in the lodge kitchens, as well as provide opportunities for the surrounding communities. Entirely funded by Singita (other than the odd government grant) the school chooses nine students from surrounding communities every year to undertake an intensive 12-month training program that includes experience in the pastry, cold section and hot kitchen. At the end, they will be competent commis chefs with valuable work skills, a good work ethic and increased opportunity for real employment./p>
