Not only will the design push the boundaries of safari style to the limit but the culinary offering at the lodge will be equally game-changing with Liam Tomlin, the Irish-born, Cape Town based founder of Chef’s Warehouse at the helm. This will be the Kruger like never before.
The new Singita Lebombo will comprise 13 suites that give guests a front row seat to the Kruger National Park with bold, contemporary open plan suites suspended above the N’Wanetsi River. Set apart from the main lodge will be two new family suites each with private pool which link together to create a spectacular exclusive-use four-bedroom villa with a stunning shared pool. Built low down on the river bank beneath mature trees the private villa is fully staffed, has an open- plan, homely kitchen and its own boma.
Singita Lebombo’s location on the fringes of the 6.4 million-acre Kruger National Park, bordering Mozambique, has become increasingly strategic. Its revenue, generated through tourism and concession lease fees, plays an important role in supporting conservation and anti-poaching efforts in the region. Singita’s investment in conservation tourism and anti-poaching resources will assist in the ongoing battle to protect Kruger National Park’s rhino population from the current poaching onslaught.
Rates at Singita Lebombo Lodge start from $1,568 per person per night on a full board basis.
