Day by Day Itinerary

 


Day 1 | JOHANNESBURG / KRUGER – LEBOMBO CONCESSION

 

Depart midday on your Federal Air Charter flight to the Lebombo concession, in the southeast region of Kruger National Park, on the Mozambique border. The Lebombo concession is one of the most pristine wild territories in Africa. The majestic Lebombo mountain range runs diagonally across the expanse of the concession, intertwined with the N’wanetsi and Sweni Rivers. The area is renowned for the big five, abundant antelope and birdlife and an incredible diversity of smaller animals. Rangers attest to the fact that this region boasts a greater density of wildlife than anywhere else on the continent.

Upon arrival at the airstrip, you will me met and transferred to Singita Sweni Lodge. Sweni Lodge is the smallest and most diminutive of the Singita family. Set low on the banks of the Sweni River in the shade of the riverine forest, Sweni shares the quiet spaces of this beautiful African waterway. Decks of dark timber lifted with bright flashes of green, the mood is calm and contemplative. Featuring six exceptional hides scattered among the groves, Sweni is a place that has a lasting effect on the spirit.

This afternoon depart on a game drive in an open land rover with a professional game ranger and tracker, returning to the lodge in the early evening with time to freshen up before a gourmet dinner in the boma.

Day 2 | LEBOMBO CONCESSION

 

The days at Singita start early, just as the sun begins to lighten the sky in the east. Your personal ranger and tracker, who accompany you on your wildlife expeditions, greet you in the main lodge with a warm beverage and light snack before you head out into the wonder of the African bush. Most of the trackers have an uncanny sixth sense about the wild, their intuition borders on the supernatural.

Return to camp with time to relax before and after lunch. In the late afternoon depart on another wildlife viewing activity.

Day 3 | SABI SAND GAME RESERVE

 

Today you will be transferred by Federal Air Charter to Singita Private Game Reserve, in the very heart of the 18,500 hectare Sabi Sand Reserve adjacent to Kruger National Park. With no fences between the two, the animals are free to roam across the wild expanses. Abundant in the Big Five and a myriad of smaller creatures, the reserve is bisected by the Sand River, an important source of water and a consistent place of refuge on the animals’ endless migration. The lie of the land is perfectly suited to game viewing. Groves of acacia thornveld, Marula trees and flatcrowns give way to open expanses of grassland, where zebra, antelope and wildebeest graze, ever wary of the threat of the large cats. Drainage lines and dry river beds are leopard territory, these majestic cats are often spotted poised in the fork of a tree with a good vantage of the ground below.

Your home for the next two nights is the Singita Ebony Lodge, renowned worldwide for its commitment to exclusivity and privacy, in one of the finest settings in Africa. Ebony is known for its first-class cuisine, world-class service and fantastic wine cellar, and is the epitome of the ultimate luxury safari experience. Interiors offer a bohemian take on traditional bush decor, while every effort is made to celebrate the great outdoors. Private suites have their own plunge pools overlooking exquisite views of the Sand River and abundant wildlife.

Over the next two days, you will enjoy wildlife viewing accompanied by your personal ranger and tracker while on game drives and on walking safaris. You can also watch wildlife from the balcony of your private suite. You will also have time to relax between activities to enjoy the ambiance of this wonderful lodge. Gourmet meals are served in your suite or under the starlit sky of the Boma.
