Singita is an award-winning safari company for its luxury lodges in prime destinations across the African continent. Although we could sing their praises for all their ultra-luxurious, personalised experience (and we will), what they're best known for is being able to offer all of this while still being a leader in conservation and sustainability. With lodges throughout the countries of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Rwanda, they have mapped out the best places to see and experiences to enjoy across Africa.
Singita has hosted plenty of glitterati and hotshots from across the globe because of its sterling reputation and flawless offering. Other than their many luxury lodges and camps, they also have the Singita Private Collection. Seven exclusive-use homes in some of the best destinations Africa has to offer, with complete privacy, seclusion and all-hands-on-deck personalised and dedicated service, it's the very best way to take on Africa. It's perfect for a family or group of friends who want to set the pace of their day themselves and a luxury home away from home.
Dedicated to their core purpose of being an ecotourism and conservation brand, first and foremost, by staying with Singita, you help them in their applaudable endeavours. The Singita brand dates back all the way to 1935 to the pioneering Bailes family's piece of land in Sabi Sand. And, since opening their very first lodge in 1993, Singita Ebony Lodge in Sabi Sand, South Africa, they've continued to gain momentum.
Today, they have 15 award-winning luxury lodges and camps in their growing and esteemed portfolio across four African countries. If you want to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Africa with your every need taken care of even before you realise it's a need, and you care deeply about protecting Mother Nature and her inhabitants, then Singita is the perfect fit for your dream African holiday.

These destinations are Big 5 safari paradises with plenty of activities on offer. The Sabi Sand is a bit more private and exclusive in general, with excellent leopard sightings. If you want something even more remote in the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, Zimbabwe is for you. Tanzania is best known for being host to part of the Great Migration, a wildlife show that will take your breath away! Then there's Rwanda, home to the endangered gorilla, for adventurous gorilla trekking adventures. Take your pick!
