Highlights

Big 5 Game  |  Personal Butler |  Private Guide

Big 5 Game

Rising up from the heart of the Kenyan landscape, the snow-capped Mount Kenya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is Africa’s second highest mountain reaching an impressive 5199 metres in height, which is an awe-inspiring sight. Visitors can explore its surrounding forests, trout-filled streams and game reserve; or for the more adventurous, summit the peak. While Mount Kilimanjaro is an easier climb, Mount Kenya is more of a challenge as it has a higher technical difficulty, however, Point Lenana can be easily reached by a fit hiker. Visitors can look forward to a variety of wonderful activities such as: cave exploration, mountain climbing, camping, and game viewing. Commonly spotted wildlife include: elephant, mongoose, duiker, bushbuck, eland and over 130 bird species.

Located in the Great Rift Valley surrounded by yellow acacia woodlands and bushy shrublands, the Lake Nakuru National Park was created to protect the Lake and its large flocks of Lesser Flamingo, which are drawn to the algae that flourish in the saline waters of this soda lake. The national park is inhabited by over 50 mammal species including hippo, black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe, buffalo and eland. Known as a bird watcher’s paradise, the park is home to over 450 bird species. Visitors can look forward to hiking through the scenic landscape, picnicking next to this magnificent lake, and spotting an array of wildlife on a game drive. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the beautiful Makalia Waterfall.

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.

Day 1 | Johannesburg / Kruger – Lebombo Concessions

 

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.
