There isn't much I can say other than WOW! The service, hotel staff, park guide (Ross) and tracker (Glass), room view, inclusions, accomodation and every other facet of the Singita experience is second to none. The way they get to know their guests and tailor all experiences including food and wine offerings is faultless, If I could experience it again... More

Incredible. I am still thinking of our last few days in Africa and this was it. Beautiful camp. Fantastic people. Service beyond expectations. They catered to our every need without being overbearing. The food was Michelin star to me. They had amazing chefs. Every diner we had a menu specific to our dietary needs with our names printed on them.... More

We arrived at Sweni Lodge for our first ever safari holiday as a family. We had the most perfect time. The people, the lodge, our room, the drives were all second to none.

This was an amazing experience, they really were very childfriendly for our four year old boy. Also the ranger and tracker, Enos and Howard did a wonderful job to show us all the animals we wanted to see. The whole staff is very friendly and very service oriented, they already knew our preferences from Singita Ebony before we arrived. This... More

Probably to be expected when a hotel only has six rooms and maybe five times the staff, this place was the perfect introduction to African safari. The staff were extremely nice and helpful, and we really enjoyed our time with our rangers and tracker during the game drives. We did not realize that June was one of the best times... More

We were at the Singita Sweni lodge for 4 days and had the best experience of our lives. The lodge is a boutique compound in the middle of the private reserve facing the river where there are hippos singing all day. The atmosphere is 100% relaxed, even though the place accepts children under 12. We felt like at home at... More

As the description of Sweni lodge and its accommodations has been well documented in previous posts, the only addition that I'd like to make is that pictures and words do not do it justice. I have no better way to put it than you are truly enveloped by the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of Kruger when you are there.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Resting lightly upon the ground within a 33,000 acre, private concession in the Kruger National Park, Singita Sweni Lodge is nestled beautifully amongst hundreds of trees at the edge of the Sweni River. In this tranquil, intimate hideaway, the decks of the lodge seem to hover in the branches, while inside, rich calming colours and textures echo the hues of the natural surroundings. With its proximity to the river, guests at Singita Sweni Lodge are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in the river. ... more   less
