Idyllically located on the banks of the Sand River.
Singita Ebony Villa pays subtle tribute to the romance and adventure of classic tented safaris, with motifs and materials - from the elegant draped four poster beds, to animal print and elegant brass, wood and stone detailing - that transport you to an era of adventure and exploration.
This intimate villa is sheltered by trees and designed to fully embrace its tranquil surroundings.
This immersion in the wooded setting offers all the calming, rejuvenating benefits of nature, and the opportunity to connect with loved ones in a truly restorative and special environment. Two family suites, set alongside one another, make it a flexible space for families to enjoy their own private space but in close proximity to each other.
Designed to extend the feeling of intimacy, outdoor areas are secluded and yet at one with the bush.
A private outdoor boma is screened off and shaded by the riverine canopy, perfect for fireside vigils under the clear night sky, and the outdoor dining space sets a peaceful scene for leisurely meals. A stone fireplace, swimming pool, spacious deck and heated plunge pools offer all-season comfort, to enjoy the elements at any time of year.
What to see and do at Ebony Lodge
Conservation in South Africa
In South Africa, the Singita Lowveld Trust employs a dedicated team focused on protecting and conserving the biodiversity of the incredible land under its care.
In South Africa, the Singita Lowveld Trust manages a wide range of conservation projects in Singita Sabi Sand and Singita Kruger National Park – from anti-poaching initiatives to wildlife research & land management, sustainability efforts and community developments projects such as early childhood development, digital learning and a world-class culinary school.
A highly skilled team of tracking dogs and handlers enhance anti-poaching efforts in the Sabi Sand Reserve, while the Trust’s partnership with the global conservation NGO Panthera has shown that the area is home to the largest density of leopards of any protected area surveyed in South Africa. The Panthera’s Furs for Life project – of which Singita is a partner – has reduced the demand for leopard skins with 50%, and Singita is also a strategic founding partner of the Lionscape Coalition, supporting the Lion Recovery Fund’s goal to double wild lion numbers by 2050.
