“What a luxury safari should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Really can't get better than this lodge. The gorgeous accommodations, the excellent food and wine, the impeccable service, the game drives, the great guides and trackers. Prepare to spend a lot, but it's really a once in a lifetime experience that shoulnd't be missed.

One thing to be careful of is going to South Africa for a safari in the early summer / rainy season (November) - there are many, many bugs at night. I have heard that Feb / March is better during the warmer months.

Amazing experience. Not detail overlooked. Staff was warm and personable. Lianke, who served as our hostess/anchor, was incredibly personable and approachable. Ronny, our waiter, always served with a smile and a sense of humor. Marlon and Solomon were smart and experienced guides/trackers and made game drives at the crack of dawn fun and entertaining. Wish I could return yearly.

To be honest - I am still in a state of amazement after staying in Singita Lebombo,
From the first minute you step in - you are in the best place on Earth.
Literally everything is just terrific...
Staff there are the most wonderful people I have ever met - so friendly, smiley, cheerful... just simply great people!
Outdoor shower, huge balcony overlooking Kruger National Park, cool bathroom area... WOW.
Safari guys are so experienced and making every minute of your game reserve experience being absolutely unforgettable.
Honestly - I cant wait to go back. My heart belongs to Singita.

Singita Lebembo is heaven on earth! If you plan to visit then you are making the right decision because they have everything figured out! The staff is amazing Laurenz, Lucky, Brian, Exon are the best and well trained to make you feel like your visiting family. The rooms are spacious and deliver a secluded sanctuary for you to enjoy your in time in the bush. Every meal is delicious so please do not sleep in and miss any of them. The game drives are excellent, we say the big 5 in one day and saw a Leopard eat a waterbuck for dinner. If you click on my links you can read my blogs on all my experiences at Lebombo

Lebombo lodge cannot be described in words, you have to experience the lodge and bush to really understand what they are offering. Everything at Lebombo is world class, combined with excellent service and the best game viewing ever, this makes for a magical experience in the African bush. You will not find better game viewing anywhere else and we found the big 5 on multiple occasions during our game drives - the game viewing is insane!! We normally take clients to the lodge and Singita goes out of their way to accommodate us with conference facilities and private locations to get some work done, not that you would want to work at Singita.

Kind regards,
Kobus Muller.

Room Tip: Room 9 is my favourite as it is situated near the river and very private. It is a longer walk from t...
